Amen, my brother. Those were the good, old days of Dexter when you would feel addictively drawn to watching every episode of the season in a good, exciting way and not out of a sense of obligation that are driving most people into further watching Dexter.
Yeah it's feeling more tired and formulaic with every season.
The shame of it is, they had a really cool idea in pitting Dexter against another mentor/student combo. They just forgot to make those characters remotely compelling.
Colin Hanks is a solid enough actor, but in a show like this you really
