'Dexter': Dexter and Brother Sam discuss faith, murder, and other deep stuff -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

There are few happy endings on Dexter, but last week’s episode of the Showtime drama concluded on a particularly disturbing note. (That Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse scene might have even made the Lone Ranger soil his saddle.) On this Sunday’s episode, titled “A Horse of A Different Color,” things will probably get even creepier when Dexter catches a glimpse of the next tableau dastardly realized by Professor Gellar and Travis. Before that, though, Miami Metro’s own serial slayer winds up back in the garage of the righteous-but-enigmatic Brother Sam. See what happens when these two engage in a deep conversation about religion and the killer who seems to be reenacting scenes from the Book of Revelation. As Sam tells Dexter: “Just because he believes in some crazy bulls—, that don’t mean his faith is any less real.”  READ FULL STORY

Cable premiere dates: When to expect more 'Dexter,' 'Psych,' and, um, 'I Used to Be Fat'

Just because ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX and CW are rolling out all their finest, doesn’t mean all the cable networks have hung out the Gone Fishin’ signs. There are still plenty of good series to look forward to from the likes of Showtime, TLC, BBC America et al. (Well, except maybe Texas Multi Mamas on WE. What the heck is that?) READ FULL STORY

System failing. Too much TV. Abort! Abort!

DEXTER REVISITS THE PAST IN AWESOME PREMIERE

Last season of Dexter ended with the door open for anything to happen. Lumen lost her darkness and left, Dexter had taken down the season’s villain, and there was even a small note of optimism on his part that he could one day live without his own darkness following him.

On Oct. 2, we pick up with Harrison starting pre-school and Dexter very much at peace with his darkness. And, dare I say, enjoying it again.

Without ruining too much (because I honestly felt incredibly psyched by the premiere and want you to experience it for yourself), much of the episode centers around Dexter tracking down a potential victim at his 20th high school reunion. There, we not only get a great picture of who Dexter was as a high school student, but also get a good laugh out how his classmates perceive him now. (He’s… popular!)

We’re also introduced to Colin Hanks and Edward James Olmos’ demented characters. I can happily report that the first murder they are responsible for is one of the most disgusting ones I’ve ever seen on the show. Congrats, newbies! READ FULL STORY

'Dexter' promo teases new characters, features new footage, and generally creeps us out -- VIDEO

There are a ton of new faces on the upcoming season of Dexter — which premieres Sunday, Oct. 2 — and if you’ve have trouble keeping track, this new extended behind the scenes promo lays them out quite nicely if you ask me.

Among the newbies? Brother Sam, played by Mos (now sans “Def”) is a victim-turned-unexpected ally of Dexter’s. Professor Gellar (Edward James Olmos) is the creepy mentor of Travis (Colin Hanks), who seemingly has succeeded in passing on Gellar’s warped ways. Jamie Batista (Aimee Garcia) is the new nanny and Angel’s (too-hot-to-be-related-in-real-life) sister. And Mike Anderson (Billy Brown), is a new detective and Chicago native who is described as being intolerant of shenanigans and apparently — based on how he treats Deb in the preview — also vaginas.

See a clip from 'The Simpsons' Halloween episode featuring Ned Flanders as... Dexter! -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

Simpsons-Flanders

Ned Flanders may be a God-fearing individual, but apparently he’s not afraid to slice and dice. In this clip from The Simpsons’ annual Halloween episode “Treehouse of Horror XXII” — which was shown last weekend at the animated Fox comedy’s Comic-Con panel — the opening credits of Dexter are given a Springfield makeover, with Flanders assuming the role of the meticulous serial killer, Dexter Morgan. As we’ll learn when “Treehouse of Horror XXII” airs Oct. 30, Homer’s pious neighbor believes that the big guy upstairs is instructing him to murder various residents of the town. Click below to enjoy the diddily-dum-doodily dark side of Ned Flanders. READ FULL STORY

Ricky Gervais to team with 'Dexter' producer for 'Afterlife' -- EXCLUSIVE

Ray Burmiston

The Office meets Dexter?

Yes! Ricky Gervais, the creator of The Office and Extras is teaming up with former Dexter showrunner, Clyde Phillips, for a new show called Afterlife, about an atheist who dies and goes to heaven.

They are writing the pilot episode now and plan to film in early 2012, though no studio is yet attached. Gervais will take a cameo role.

On his website, Gervais wrote, “Dexter has consistently been my favourite show of the last five years. When I first saw Clyde’s name all over it I knew I had to work with him one day. I found out he was also a fan of my work and we became friends on email and through short conversations on various red carpets. We finally started working on an idea this year and we really hit it off. I am so exited about this project.”

The plot has traces of Gervais’ The Invention of Lying, the 2009 film that featured Gervais as a desperate underachiever who introduces the idea of God to a naive society where no one else has yet contemplated the notion of telling a falsehood.

First look at a crime scene from season 6 of 'Dexter' -- EXCLUSIVE PHOTO

Waiting for season 6 of Dexter is murder, but here’s something to tide you over — a first look at an image from the first episode! (We pause for a SPOILER ALERT.) Witness blood splatter analyst/serial killer Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) squatting by a stitched-up corpse while preparing an evidence bag of… baby snakes? “That is the first mysterious kill linked to Professor Gellar that’s going to cross Dexter’s path and let him know that he’s up against a killer, the likes of which he hasn’t seen before,” exec producer Scott Buck tells EW, referencing the charismatic religious studies professor that will be played by Edward James Olmos. “This is a person who’s sending out a message, and Dexter can’t wait to figure out what that message is.” To see another image from the new season, which debuts this fall, check out the issue of EW hitting newsstands on Friday. (UPDATE: New Dexter image is here!) And to read more from Buck on season 6, click here.

Watch the mesmerizing new trailer for season 6 of 'Dexter'

Ready to get up close and personal with a serial killer? Showtime has released a new trailer for season 6 of Dexter, and it’s engaging, entrancing, and quietly disturbing. “I’m feeling like my old self again,” intones Michael C. Hall’s Dexter, sounding like the confident killing machine from earlier seasons. Season 6, which debuts this fall, includes guest stars such as Edward James Olmos, Colin Hanks, and Mos Def. Watch the clip below. READ FULL STORY

Edward James Olmos joins 'Dexter'

Battlestar Galactica star Edward James Olmos has signed on to the sixth season of Showtime’s Dexter.

He’s going to play a “brilliant, charismatic professor of religious studies.” The former Admiral Adama is added to a cast list that includes previously announced guest stars like Colin Hanks and Mos (formerly Mos Def). Production on the next season starts on May 25 and the show debuts this fall.

Here’s a teaser (no new footage, though): READ FULL STORY

Mos joins season 6 of 'Dexter' this fall

Hip hop star-turned-actor Mos (formerly Mos Def) will join season six of Dexter this fall. He’ll appear in a multi-episode arc as Brother Sam, an ex-con who claims to have found religion but is still surrounded by violence.

Production on Dexter begins in June in Los Angeles.

Mos earned an Emmy nomination in 2004 for his work in HBO’s Something the Lord Made. His film credits include 16 Blocks, The Italian Job and The Woodsman.

'Lost' and 'Heroes' top list of most pirated shows of 2010

heros2Image Credit: Chis HastonTwo shows that bid farewell in 2010 under drastically different circumstances topped the list of the most pirated television programs of the year, according to TorrentFreak.com. Lost, which wrapped after six seasons, was illegally downloaded nearly six million times, while Heroes, which NBC canceled in May after a disappointing fourth season, recorded more downloads than its average weekly television audience. (In other words, people in New Zealand were willing to break the law to watch a show NBC couldn’t give away in America for free!)

Dexter, which ranked third, also posted more pirated episodes than the Showtime hit’s lawful average viewership. The rest of the top 10 included: The Big Bang Theory, House, How I Met Your Mother, 24, True Blood, Glee, and Family Guy.
