By the way, anyone else notice this?
Yeah, I noticed it too, though I couldn't figure out the actual painting, thus thanks for posting it.


This was actually a very good episode, but I am glad Rudy is gone, he was getting on my nerves, but that was probably the intent.
I wonder if Nebraska will be revisited, as there is still a potential threat to Dexter, with Noah knowing, that Dexter killed Trinity.


This episode is already listed on the "American Gothic" Wikipedia article as parody: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Gothic#Parodies
And the editing and camera work in the car reminded me of Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, it was sick, but again, it was the purpose of it.

I thought the "American Gothic" bit was a tad on-the-nose, honestly.

Re: Dexter

I found the latest episode to be a bit disappointing actually. It had lots of potential with the road trip and Rudy tagging along, but the thing with Trinity's son felt contrived from the beginning (and even learning that it was actually the mother who snapped didn't change that). And the detour with the pot farmer didn't really go anywhere.

I did get a kick out of Rudy voicing what I've felt for quite a while now though-- that Dexter has been softened and domesticated FAR too much over the years, and has lost nearly all the edge he used to have.

After the last episode, I think I'm sold on the Gellar theory...

I really wish that they'd off laGuerta she's officially as of this season...totally uselsess and annoying. After her storyline last season laid a big fat stinking turd on the show I can't stand her character.

Re: Dexter

I can't stand how vamped up her makeup and hair is.

She looks like an oompa lumpa drag queen.

On Ugly Betty, she wasn't as Glam and it looked a thousand time better.

Re: Dexter

I am behind on so much reading.

But the word "Pooka" comes to mind for no reason whatsoever.
