You should give it a try. I really liked the first season, but then I never watched any of the others. I even took season 2 disc 1 out of the library (twice) but I never got to it. So I can't give it the unqualified thumbs up I would to (say) The Wire.

The Modesto Kid

You mean Dexter with the Laboratory? Or somebody else?

I watched the first season and liked it. After that it seemed to go eccentric in search of plot and the combination of soap opera with truly strange people bored me.

The last episode is magnificent.


What Bob said.

My brother and I spent one summer watching reruns on Bravo. My brother decided this summary of the series was best, "All American families are dysfunctional. Not all of them are interesting."


The first and second season are truly outstanding, as is the final episode. Most of seasons 3-5 are merely pretty good, with moments of rising above.

  • Confused by our comment policy?

    We're testing a strong CC license as a form of troll repellant. Does that sound strange? Read this thread. (I know, it's long. Keep scrolling. Further. Further. Ah, there.) So basically, we figure trolls will recognize that selling coffee cups and t-shirts is the best revenge, and will keep away. If we're wrong about that, at least someone can still sell the cups and shirts. (Sigh.)
