Admitting one has a problem is the first step to getting better, right? Anyway hate-watching is different from watching a show you hate because there is a part of you that wants to like the show despite all of its flaws. Hate-watching is also not like guilty pleasure watching because a guilty pleasure TV show is one that you love but are just ashamed to admit to enjoying. Nope, hate-watching is in its own special category and is horribly addictive.

Why has it taken so long for somebody to do a mashup of everyone’s favorite serial killer and my own personal favorite boy genius? The fine folks over at Screenjunkies realized the vacuum in pop culture that this was and filled it by creating this amalgamation of Showtime’s Dexter and Cartoon Network’s Dexter’s Laboratory complete with a Deb/Dee Dee hybrid of annoyance.
Death is a pretty regular occurrence on TV shows. It is used to boost ratings for sweeps or to increases interest in a waning show, or just because some creators like to rip the hearts out of their viewership (condemning side-eye in your direction GAME OF THRONES!). Sometimes these deaths are so amazingly written, acted and produced that they propel the show into storylines that create wonderful TV like The death of Mrs. Summers in BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER or Col. Blake on MASH but then there are the deaths that seem to be the results of bad writing or a show that has become creatively bankrupt. These bad deaths result in horrible episodes of what were previously wonderful shows. And it is with this thought in mind that I give you my list of the 5 Suckiest Deaths in TV History!
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.
The last season of Dexter was a disappointment on many levels. The show was unable to fully capitalize on the murder of Dexter’s wife Rita and spin that tragedy off into storylines that were interesting and entertaining. Instead we were made to suffer through a first half of the season that was almost painful to watch and a second half that, while better than the first, did not live up to the standards set by this show over the years. This dip in quality was augmented by the show having come off of what was arguably its best season ever. The Trinity Killer storyline was amazing and to follow that up with Dexter in mourning and then falling in love with some creature named Lumen (the interminable Julia Stiles) was just a serious misstep.
