John Litgoe was brilliant in Dexter.  On the topic of TV Recommendations, Dexter Season 4 is one of the best season's iv'e watched of any show.

That was definitely the high point of Dexter. I really enjoyed the show but it struggled making characters that werenít Dexter interesting, I always wanted them to get back to the A plot and whatever Dexter was up to. The rest of them felt almost like they were acting in a generic procedural.

True, it was only going one direction after S4, and as you said, every other character was less than secondary to Dexter. 

Maybe thatís why shows with big casts such as Sopranos and GOT are so successful, there are that many interesting characters with their own arcs viewers can take an interest in them if the main plot is dwindling....   
I tend to think of myself as a one man wolfpack...

Dennis Rader - serial killer. He appeared at the start of a lot of episodes in the first series.
He's obviously going to play a major part in subsequent series.

It could take a qware few seasons to keep up with him though, didn't get caught until recently.  Such a stupid way to get caught too considering how well he evaded capture for decades.

Started Mindhunter, excellent first couple of episodes. Ed Kemper is a class character.

Anyone know where I can watch 'Wrecking The Rising' online? Had recorded most, but missing half an episode.

Been watching a documentary series on Netflix called Shot in the Dark.  Really enjoying it.  It's based on the guys who listen to police scanners in LA and rush to film incidents, with the hope of selling the footage to the networks.  It's a crazy job and it takes a certain type of person.

If the real life people are anything like the fictional characters in Nightcrawler then it sounds worth watching!
