I started watching this a few weeks ago (I think on space). It's the whole ghost and supernatural power perspective from a male point of view. Kind of like a combination of ghostwhisperer, medium and supernatural all in one. I found it interesting but it started cutting into another show which won out so I might start watching it again.

Dexter is awesome but can you imagine how much of it will be cut on network television?

I don't know. Dexter to me is disgusting. All that gore and twistedness.
It just isn't for me.

Well, in terms of how much they'll cut, according to the Showtime president, they only had to shave about 6 minutes off of each episode and most of it was swearing so really nothing is gonna be lost with editing

That being said, bahrain, obviously they'll have to cut the extremely gory scenes out, so maybe you'll find it more appealing on CBS. theres really not that much gore though..

i just cant wait to make all my friends who dont have showtime watch the first season so i can talk about it with them!

I totally mixed this show up with the Dresdon Files. I have no idea what I was thinking...

Moe - I was wondering, I didn't think there was supernatural stuff in Dexter smile

Bahrain - you might do better with the TV version then, they'll cut out the gore. I'm a bit squeamish myself so I look away during gory scenes, but I do like the moral dilemmas they present here. It gives you a lot to think about.

If you're the LEAST bit squeamish, you will spend a lot of the hour with your hands over your eyes. I found it intriguing yet disgusting....but couldn't turn it off. I'm kind of surprised that CBS is showing it. The scenes are no more graphic than CSI or some of the others, but the sociopathic storyline is pretty disturbing. I can't quite put my finger on WHY I found it more unsettling than some Law and Order stories, but I did. Maybe it's because it's done in first person? Definitely not for the kiddies.

Lisa- I am the same way with Nip/Tuck and Dirt. I love the storylines but can do without the not-so-subtle sex scenes in those shows.

your right, the scenes did seem a little more graphic than CSI but i didnt find them overly disturbing. I was impressed by how much they actually left in the episodes. But that being said, they definitely cut out all the really gruesome stuff so you should def check it out on CBS...Michael C. Hall is fantastic in it
