Henry, Anne and Dex

Well, I've finally finished watching Season 2 of Dexter and have caught up on Season 2 of The Tudors. Pete is catching up on Dexter today. Seriously, we have Showtime just because of these two shows...both are very, very good. I'm thrilled that both will be back for third seasons.

Dexter is one of those shows that just sucks you in. I know, I know, there will be some of you out there who will think this is a bad show because the "hero" is a serial killer, but seriously, it is so well written and the plot twists are so clever that it is almost refreshing! Season 1 was much more gruesome and I will have to admit, there were scenes in S1 that bothered me some. Season 2 has been different though...more dark comedy or maybe I noticed it more since there seemed to be less blood. And oh, it took us forever to figure out that Dexter's sister, Deb, is also Emily Rose from The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Now, that was a freaky movie!

And what can I say about The Tudors? I absolutely love this show!! The costume and set designs are phenomenal. I catch myself trying to imagine what it would have been like to dress the way people did back then. Was it cumbersome to wear crowns all the time?? I know it was the style of the time, but I think the "muffin-top" necklines would have driven me crazy!

Ok, now I'm going to have to find out a way to watch The Tudors. Can you rent them?

As a woman, the most important thing you learn when dressing in Tudor/Elizabethan noble dress is to put your shoes on _before_ you lace up your corset!
