I don't know if you've read the book Hannibal by Thomas Harris but he effectively neutralised Hannibal Lecter by making him become more or less normal at the end of the story. It was a huge betrayal IMO. Apart from that the story was shite anyway.


How so? I've read the novel, and I don't remember him "neutralising" Lecter at all.

But only after he made Starling his love slave and partner in crime. And I just assumed he would continue to indulge his taste for murder & cannibalism when he wasn't tangoing the night away.

I actually thought the ending of the book was considerably darker than the ending of the film.

Re: Dexter

I didn't see the film, working on the premise that the book sucked so much the film had to be worse.

Re: Dexter

Well, if you didn't like the book, you probably won't like the movie. But they did change the ending radically--probably because the ending Harris wrote was unfilmable.

^ Dex. He's got relative youth on his side and would probably make sure that he was holding all the cards.

I say Lecter. Age and treachery would overcome youth and skill.

I hate to say this, but the more I think about it, the more I want to see this movie.

Or this season of Dexter, which would be even better. It would mean the show had staged the biggest jump over the biggest shark in the history of television, but it would still be glorious.

all ways loved the season one ending. I think he married the actress who played his sister right after that.
And they divorced right after the last season ended....

This very last conversation (from last season 5 finale) becomes more real now

Dexter: But I want you to be happy.

Deb: I am. I'm happy. You must be too, Now that this is
all over, I mean.

Re: Dexter

I just saw the Season 6 premiere that was leaked on-line and without giving away any spoilers, EJO and Colin Hanks's interesting performance aside, it doesn't give me a lot of hope for the show's future.
