I saw all those posts at the end of the last page and thought we were still talking about How I Met Your Mother.

@blackjack68: Did you finish Resident Alien S01? We did last night. The show is so damn good, and Alan Tudyk just kills.

Very enjoyable albeit a bit odd.

Not sure where it goes from here, but we’ll be waiting to see.

Sadly, I see it plummeting by season 3.

Aside from John Lithgow and MCH's collective performances, Dexter was a beautiful premise squandered by bad writing and worse acting.

The premise though...*chef's kiss*. They just spent a lot of energy f***ing it all up

The majority of the series was good to excellent.

Yeah that's a take that's greatly influenced by the last couple seasons. Overall, that series was amazing.

Him finding Rita in the tub. Man, that entire scene is still so vivid in my memory.

This (above) is how it should have ended.
Full circle (his son sitting in the blood). It had the best villain of the series. This would have made it one of the best shows of all time IMO had it ended right there. Such a gut punch and yet I felt that it was what had to be. I would have been happy with that ending.

i gave up after the colin hanks season - whatever that was. the problems were evident since the first season.

Namely: Deb. Maybe the most irritating character in TV history.

But the goofballs at the police department were also ridiculous. I don't need Dexter to have the tightest internal logic in town, but there was just nothing authentic about any of the dialog or performances from the cops. Doakes was one thing (they f'd up killing him), but everyone else was a flat out problem.

i don't know why i hung in there as long as i did. i think you swap michael C hall with a different actor and it's a totally different ballgame. he was just so good

Agreed. Way too many shows write past their ending. I really appreciate when a show announces an end date and writes the story to serve that ending. I appreciate it even more when that show goes out still maintaining good ratings/ad sales/etc.

I always thought a spin-off one-season miniseries where they redo the Doakes season from his perspective would have been amazing.

Better Call Saul should have inspired offshoots like this.

Though I guess the old ABC TGIF lineup did this plenty.

Doakes appeared in Season 4 of Banshee and I couldn't have been more excited.

I'm sure this will be historically accurate and not full of anachronisms.

I'm sure this will be as entertaining as his other movies since he's one of the best movie makers in the world! Calm down a little, maybe go watch Jesus of Nazareth (1977 series, which is fantastic).

New details have been revealed about the upcoming John Wick show The Continental. It will be a prequel series focusing on the young Winston, the character played by Ian McShane in the movies.

The news comes via a Deadline interview with Kevin Begg, the chairman of Lionsgate TV, which is producing The Continental for Starz. Begg stated that the show will be set in "crumbling New York in the 1970s," and will explore the origins of both the titular hitman hotel and how Winston came to be its manager.

"What we're exploring in The Continental is the young Winston and how it came to be that he and his team of confederates found their way into this hotel which we have met for the first time in the movie franchise 40 years later," he said. "That's the arena. I won't give away more than that, but Starz really leaned into this take also, and they have been great collaborators."

Begg also revealed that The Continental Season 1 will consist of three 90 minute episodes "which you could construe as a limited series or a limited event series.” The show doesn't have a release date yet.

Unsurprisingly, given the series is set many decades ago, neither McShane or John Wick star Keanu Reeves are expected to appear. Begg stated that Reeves "is likely executive producing," while Reeves and Wick movie director Chad Stahelski "have read every draft and been enthusiastic supporters of expanding this universe in a meaningful way." McShane had already stated he wouldn't appear, but did previously tell Rotten Tomatoes that "I may give 'em a voiceover."

The article mentions that John Wick 4 and 5 will shoot back to back later this year.
