I'm of the mind as of tonight that 'Dexter' and 'Heroes', two of my most watched new tv shows, haven't necessarily 'jumped the shark' but are 'stuck at the dock' or are 'spinning their wheels' or some other catch phrase for starting to feel repetitive. My other realization is that their initial 'series arc mystery' is a limited one trick pony, and thus got me wondering - where do they go from here?
Heroes - Save the cheerleader...save the world!
Okay - let's preume they save the cheerleader, thus save the world (or there ain't no more show). Then what?
As for Dexter, I'm not saying I'm no longer entertained. But I think I know who the ice truck killer is - and the little knowing look into the camera by Dexter at the end of last nights episode felt a little 'Dr. Evil' over the top. Okay, minor complaints - and I will let them stretch this out for a season...but then what?
Now I'm happy to be proven wrong. I admit I thought '24' and 'Prison Break' and even 'Lost' had no legs based on their premise, and look at them now.
And I realize this discussion may prove to be fruitless because viewers aren't up to speed plus I'm not advocating to give up a lot of 'spoilers', but I'm putting it out there anyway.
