I’m sure all the UK viewers of Dexter are excited that tomorrow night, Friday the 24th at 10pm, Season 3 begins. I’ve already seen season 3, don’t worry though I won’t spoil it for you. Be aware though that the episode guide here does have a few spoilers, but it won’t give too much away unless you read too many episodes ahead.
I will say though that the first couple of episodes we’re quite disappointing, they just did’nt feel too much like the Dexter we’ve all become addicted to. However, fans will soon be glued to the TV when the plot lines take off, trust me.
What are you expecting from this season? What challenges will Dexter face? Will he become more man than serial killer? How about his relationship with Rita? More importantly, what about Dexter’s beloved code, now that he found his father made many of his own mistakes, how will Dexter put that into context with the code Harry drilled into him? Let me know your thoughts in the comments.
The official FX UK site has a countdown if you want to sit and watch the clock. That time again for Season 3, Friday 24th April at 10pm on FXUK. Don’t miss it!
Talk on the rumourmill is that Showtime are looking to capitalise on the success of Dexter and produce a straight-to-dvd movie. SyFy content producers of Battlestar Gallactica & Stargate series has Showtime wondering if they get their own cashcow with Dexter.
As yet there is no confirmation of which series will be the focus of this project, but apparently Showtime are looking at Dexter, The Tudors and (not yet aired) Hero. If Dexter is chosen then expect to hear about it at the 2009 San Diego Comic Con (SDCC) in July.
The rumours continue that if they got the go-ahead the film would be release between the 4th and 5th seasons, which will give fans something to look forward to between the inter-season hiatus of 2009-2010.
At the recent Games Developer Conference (GDC), Touch Arcade met with Marc Ecko Entertainment to check out the much anticipated Dexter iPhone Game which is due out this summer. The game which was announced last year in July and has had a lot of attention since they released some high resolution images of the game. Many people suggested that the images released could not be true of the actual game, as it is with many games, however Touch Arcade have stated that the 3D gameplay is ‘remarkable’.
The game engine was developed by Icarus Studios and is a port of their MMO engine and they reckon that it is rendering the full 3d environment with 30,000 polygons and at 30 frames a second on the iPhone/iPod Touch hardware. So enough of the tech specs and let’s see it in action:
The initial release will be based on the first 4 episodes of the first season, so each victim is true to the series, however they have added an extra new victim in each level to increase the interest, probably for the Dexter Diehards! Some more details on the game are on a previous post here, and another YouTube video which delves a little deeper into the functionality and gameplay (language warning).
