Watch Now: ‘Dexter’ Season 5 Trailer
  |  

Adding to all the awesome from the 2010 San Diego Comic-con is a trailer for the upcoming new season of Showtime’s Dexter. If you have not seen all of season 4, do not read any further and certainly do not watch the trailer. If you have, and want a sneak peek of the coming season, by all means continue.

You can watch the trailer here after the break.

Dexter is one of those shows that really draws you in, it’s a fantastic show. That being said I’ve been on the fence whether or not I’m going to be watching the new season. The death of Rita has been difficult to deal with. She was such a great character, and really helped to balance the character of Dexter. Seeing this trailer has made a major push towards me continuing to watch.

It seems like the series will be taken in exactly the direction it needs to. Dexter becomes a suspect in Rita’s murder. The lies he piled up in season 4 start to crumble, and he seems to start to spiral out of control. All the while trying to care for the kids. We’ll see if he has to care for all three of them or just his baby.

  |  @   |  

These days, it feels like more people are diagnosed with cancer than people catch the common cold, and it’s about as depressing as anything can be. Just in this past few months, two stars of hugely-popular premium TV series announced that they were receiving treatment for the disease.

In January, star of the Showtime hit series Dexter, Michael C. Hall, was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s lymphoma; two months later, Andy Whitfield, who is the star of the successful new Starz series Spartacus: Blood and Sand was given a Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma diagnoses.

DVD Review: Gamer
  |  

Gamer
Directed by Neveldine/Taylor
Starring Gerard Butler, Michael C. Hall, Amber Valletta, Chris “Ludacris” Bridges, Kyra Sedgwick
Lionsgate Home Entertainment
Release Date: January, 19, 2010

You know things are bad when the best part of a film based on ultra-violent video games is the dance sequence. However, such is the case with Gamer, which really only gives the viewer what they should expect from a Grand Theft Auto game: an unbelievable plot, half-naked women, and lots of people getting shot. It’s all very generic and blurs together, which is probably why villain Ken Castle (Michael C. Hall) lip-syncing and dancing with soldiers he has under mind control is the only scene that stands out in any significant way.

What passes for the plot of Gamer is simple: In the near future, computer genius Castle creates a type of nanomachine that allows someone to remotely control another human being. Why not just use it to take over world? Well, he’s working on it, but first he decides to use his invention to create a real life version of Second Life, when people can pay to control other real humans, who are in turn paid to be “actors” in the game environment. After amassing the largest fortune in the world, Castle creates a second game, “Slayers,” where the players control death row inmates in a Call of Duty-like shooter. The inmates sign up with the promise of freedom… if they win 30 games.

  |  @   |  

Amazon’s week of HBO DVD deals continues with today’s Gold Box spotlight deal of the day, Six Feet Under: The Complete Series DVD box set for only $67.99 (that’s 62% off the list price of $179.98).

This sale is for today only while supplies last.

The set 25-disc set contains all five seasons of the Alan Ball dramatic series, plus two bonus soundtracks, audio commentary, deleted scenes, episode previews and recaps, and several featurettes (Ball is also the creator of HBO’s True Blood). [Update: the latest set has similar design, but is not as pictured.] The packaging on this one is mighty creative: the top of the box looks like a stone grave marker with the show’s name and years of running (2001-2005) surrounded by grass, with the rest of the box made to look like dirt. The set also comes with an exclusive illustrated booklet with character obituaries and memories from the show’s creators.

For those of you not familiar with the show, its main selling point right now might be that it starred Michael C. Hall, known now for playing the serial killer who offs serial killers on Showtime’s Dexter.
