In preparation for the UK launch of the series, FX (UK) experimented with an SMS-based viral marketing campaign. Unsuspecting mobile phone owners received unsolicited SMS messages identified as being from "Dexter," with no other identification or originating phone number. The SMS messages contain the following text, referring to the phone owner by name:

"Hello (name). I'm heading to the UK sooner than you might think. Dexter."

Some time later, an email is received directing the user to an online video "news report" about a recent spree of killings. Using on-the-fly video manipulation, the user's name and a personalized message are worked into the report – the former written in blood on a wall by the crime scene, the latter added to a note in an evidence bag carried past the camera.


<3 Dexter

EDIT - I'm excited. First episode looked promising. LOVED the scene where Dexter teaches blood splatter to school children.

Dexter deserves a friend. I wonder if he will be able to rationalize killing him or will he do something drastic?

I wish he hadn't killed delilah. I would have loved it if she had stayed. I grew so attached to her. Like seriously, I was PISSED/SAD when she died, even though it was necessary.

Are you kidding me? I hated that bitch so much by the time he killed her. I'd been yelling for him to kill her for like, the last 5 episodes of the season. I wish he'd tortured her more.

Word on the street is there's gonna be a DA who gets close to Dexter, secret wise, and might be a new friend. I read that somewhere, can't remember.

Hey. She was hot. It's too bad she had to be psycho. Julie Benz voice annoys me.

I miss Doakes. And yeah, Mell. Two nights ago was the premiere and they introduced the DA, played by Jimmy Smits.

DUDE I miss Doakes too. The only good things to come out of his death were plot resolution and making Delilah eligible for slaughter.

I hope they bring back Doakes as a zombie. But that's a direction the show probably WONT want to take...

Obviously not a zombie, but he could come back as an almost ghostly tug on Dexter's psyche a la his brother in early season 2.

Okay so I've begun watching Fringe and here's what I think. I don't care about PluckyFemale or AngstyPlayboyGenius, I want to just watch InsaneMadScientist run around and spew gobblygook about electrical fields and hormones. This reminds me of something I learned in a webcomic:

If all science sufficiently advance is indistinguishable from magic, than all sufficiently old scientists are magicians. Thus, I'm enjoying it until the novelty wears off, or the story starts pulling its own weight.

^This. Melli, it's really a travesty that we live so far apart sometimes.

Jurys still out on fringe for me, however this weeks episode assured that ill at least finish the first season. Episode had subterranian torpedos, ray guns, and a mind reading machine.

Really its been kinda hit or miss so far, if JJ doesnt get a decent storyline going hes going to run out of crazy ideas to tryout before season 1 is running out.

Fringe still does nothing for me. I put it on for background noise but that's pretty much it

Showtime did I think, i watched one episode and then moved on. I never really found her to be as hot as everyone else thinks.

Yeah that show is stupid and the actress they have playing the part isn't hot enough to warrant playing a high priced hooker.

Meh, i only watched the first episode of the first season and then the last, was interesting, and as a plus, free soft-pornography!

Supposebly the second season is supposed to be better.

I agree about the actress though. She's not a looker.

Watch Fringe if only to see Charlie come through in the clutch one last time.

So South Park's first episode was funny, but nothing to send home about.

A new web-series that looks rather entertaining.
