Dexter (season 7)
Admittedly, catching a series at its seventh season is the very embodiment of anti-serendipity.
I do realise 'Dexter' was probably a whole lot better a couple of years ago.
All good things come to an end, and tv-series generally stop being good at least two or three years before anyone has the sense to cancel them.
Yet, despite the tired and cliché characters, even the most weary of plotlines (seriously, how can anyone not be fed up with serial killers????) is boosted by the ambiguity of the Dexter character himself.
It kept me up for a number of episodes, but by now I feel that at the end of the day, for all his duplicity, it remains a basic police show.
And I have had just about all I can take of those.
