Dexter

With premiere week over I’ve compiled a list of the week’s top premieres from each night. The winner of each night is based upon the quality of the writing, the shows entertainment value and if it’s a new series, the shows sustainability. This year had some extremely heavy hitters and some of the best performances we have seen on the small screen. So without further ado, here are the winners of the FSR Fall 2010 Watch List (please note that this list only applies to shows that started before or during the week of September 19th). Sunday: Boardwalk Empire In what should come as no surprise, Boardwalk Empire was top dog on Sunday. I’m not big into period pieces which is why I really never got into Mad Men, but Scorsese has made me fall in love with the 20’s and Atlantic City. Steve Buscemi is a great lead and a guy I can’t wait to watch every week. If only Scorsese could direct every episode and not just the pilot.

Today begins a week long TV feature on FSR, as this week is officially premiere week for all major networks. So we’re here to tell all the good stuff premiering (both new and returning), or in some cases what has already begun. So get your DVR remote ready because this is the first of six all new FSR WATCH LISTs. The first night on our list is Sunday. Sunday is notorious for being both a haven of creation, and a pit of downfall for many TV series. So let’s begin…

The two big network winners of the night were HBO and ABC, both walking away with 17 and 15 awards respectively.

Join us each week as Rob Hunter takes a look at new DVD releases and gives his highly unqualified opinion as to which titles are worth BUYing, which are better off as RENTals, and which should be AVOIDed at all costs. And remember, these listings and category placements are meant as informational conversation starters only. But you can still tell Hunter how wrong he is in the comment section below. The big news this week is the long overdue US release of the incredibly entertaining Korean western, The Good the Bad the Weird. Aside from that it’s a pretty ‘meh’ week with Temple Grandin, Skellig: The Owl Man, Cemetery Junction, Cougar Town, and more. See all of this week’s relevant DVD releases after the jump…

Showtime Networks has a big presence in San Diego this year, from gigantic banners to multiple panels to a button campaign and several buses toting fellow nerds around the city. The crux of their advertising campaign this year revolvers around the idea that Showtime’s ‘heroes’ have more fun. Specifically we’re talking about Weeds, Californication, Dexter, and Nurse Jackie, shows that prominently feature some rather messed up main characters who are dysfunctional on some level. While each of these shows was represented on a panel (Dexter was on two), most of the information that was revolved focused on Hank Moody’s furthered adventures and the future of Dexter Morgan, so that’s what we’ll be talking about here. Plus those two shows are super awesome.

In a three-way, melee attack of awesome that will leave you wondering how we removed your heart from your chest without breaking the skin, FSR is gearing up to head to sunny San Diego in order to stay indoors all weekend. Interviewer extraordinaire Jack Giroux, Robert “Fists of” Fure and I will be sharing the experience with you from Wednesday night through a hungover Sunday morning. Pack your bags, dear reader, because you’ll be coming along for the ride. Just don’t believe Fure when he tells you he’s a commercial airline pilot.

For a moment there was a part of my nerdy brain that wanted to a cross-over between RoboCop and the serial killer with the Dark Passenger, but it was fleeting. While it would be cool to see Peter Weller bring back his most famous cyborg crime-fighter, just having him as a member of the Dexter cast should be good enough. Throughout most of the upcoming season, Weller will play a “troubled Miami Metro police officer who gets caught up in an internal affairs investigation.” This investigation will no doubt have some effect on the world of Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall), as Dexter is now going to be looking for danger around every corner after the way season four ended. No spoilers here, but you probably know what I’m talking about. Weller should be a welcome addition to this solid and ever-growing cast. [Deadline]

Community

Nominations for the 62nd annual Emmy Awards were announced today — and boy, are they a let-down. Plenty of great shows were snubbed while some usual suspects were treated to another round of nominations. In the end, it’s hard to argue with several nominations for Breaking Bad, some send-off noms for Lost and a round of names from the Mad Men cast on the list. But I can’t help but wonder why recognition wasn’t paid to some of television’s best drama, namely Sons of Anarchy, or its best and most overlooked comedies, shows like Community and the dearly departed Party Down. Then of course, there’s Conan O’Brien getting a nomination for The Tonight Show. That made me giggle.

Like some of you, I am yet to get all the way through Dexter season four. I do know this — some shocking stuff happens, stuff that might make this very news item rather spoilery.

Rob Hunter loves movies. He also loves working as a trailer park handyman and playing the Starfighter arcade game in his spare time. These two joys come together in the form of cash money payments that he receives every week and immediately uses to buy more DVDs. This week we have Sons of Anarchy, The 5 Deadly Venoms, Hardbodies Collection, and more!

We may be a film site here, but all good rejects love some TV, Dexter especially, as it is truly TV at its most cinematic. Those at Comic-Con got first looks at this, but I’m very grateful to Showtime for allowing us mere mortals, that live whole countries away, the chance to see the “Dexter” teaser.
