Mental Ew moment
E and I have been enjoying Dexter on DVD.
Yeah, yeah, I know – Story about a vigilante serial killer working as a forensics specialist for the Miami Metro police is creepy , but, we are hooked just the same. Dexter is so, well, likeable, for a creepy killer. He’s socially inept, but aware of it, and yet, so average, ordinary and endearing for a psychopath. He likes kids, he has a girl friend, and he cuts people up. Only bad people – that’s what his dad, the cop trained him to do, when he realized what his adopted son really was.
We are currently watching season 3.
Imagine my surprise, when I go on IMDB and find out that the actor who plays Dexter, Michael C. Hall, is, in real life, married to Jennifer Carpenter, the actress who plays his on screen SISTER, Deb, on Dexter.
That just, well…creeps me out more than the “is he a bad guy who does good things, or a good guy who does bad things?” aspect of the show.
Don’t get me wrong…I know they are not really related. And I love Deb – her crass, filthy mouth, just blurt it out nature tickles me just as much as Dexter’s inner commentary on his outer life, but…it’s just frickin’ WERID – talk about illusion breaking.
Anyway..just thought I’d share that thought. Carry on.
