I was on WCCO News Radio 830 in Minneapolis today to talk about my Daily Beast story on series finales. Adam Carter and I had a great chat about some of the best and worst finales of all time, as well as this week’s fantastic Parks and Recreation finale. And we even touched on House of Cards a bit at the end. I can’t embed the audio, but you can find it here. Enjoy!
I’m still not sure why I stuck with Dexter after the show hit rock bottom in Season 6, but the show managed to crawl its way back to respectability last season. That trend continues as the show returns for its eighth and final season. As I wrote at The Daily Beast,
Now Dexter enters its final season with a largely confident run of early episodes that prove Season 7’s rejuvenation was not just a final gasp of breath.
It could still all unravel, but this early episodes give me hope that Dexter knows what it’s doing as it prepares to say farewell.
