The musical Jackson’s have a long and storied career going from the beginnings of the Jackson 5 to the mega-stardom and icon status of Janet and Michael in their solo careers. It is due to the gigantic shadow cast by Michael and Janet that a lot of the music made by the rest of the Jackson clan has gone unnoticed (in some cases criminally) so I felt it was my duty to spread a little bit of the love around to some of the other musical offerings by folks from the Jackson clan with this list of tunes that, while heavy on the Jermaine catalog, touches upon pretty much the entirety of the music put out by the various children and grandkids.
Decorated Vietnam hero Frank Vega returns home only to get shunned by society leaving him without a job or his high school sweetheart.

So Season 6 of DEXTER has ended and the heady euphoria I felt with the the awesomeness of the first episode of the season (Harry was back! Dexter went to his high school reunion! Dexter did the MC Hammer dance!) quickly came back to earth when the show began to make misstep after misstep. It was such an insufferable season to watch because at times the show got things almost perfect and then almost as quickly things would take a turn in a totally head scratching direction. It was a very schizophrenic season and some of the decisions have left me wondering if I should even bother with the show next season.
