David Fisher vs Dexter Morgan

PDF Print E-mail
Monday, 28 July 2008

My husband and I are huge "Dexter" fans.  I even sent the books the TV show is based on to him in Iraq.  I love all of the characters, especially Dexter.  For those of you who haven't watched it - he is a serial killer who kills serial killers.  He works for the Miami PD as a blood splatter expert.  He is strong and confident and fun to watch - the show is dark, but very funny at the same time.

 My parents have been telling me about "Six Feet Under" another HBO show (off the air now).  Michael C Hall is in it as well.  They said it was great and highly suggested it.  They told me his character was "gay", which I thought was funny that they kept describing him that way ( they are pretty liberal and accepting of different lifestyles).  So I started watching it (thank you Netflix!) and I am really enjoying it.  And you know what, him being gay is a VERY big part of the show, so now I understand what my parents were saying.  For those of you who haven't watched it - it is a series revolving around a family that runs a funeral home, and the fallout after their father suddenly dies.  Again, dark, but funny.

His character, David Fisher, is a mess, bad relationships, not out to his family, big time martyr.  As the seasons progress, he coems out and begins to step up for himself.  He is not taking verbal abuse from his boyfriend, and seems pretty happy with himself.  Great job acting - not at all like he is in 'Dexter'.

 i am on season 4, and there is this episode where he picks up a person on the side of the rode who has run out of gas.  Things get worse, and the guy kidnaps him at gun point, makes  him get money from the ATM, beats him, ties him up.  I keep waiting for him to stand up - fight back.  He is bigger physically than the guy.  But David just keeps doing what he is told to do.  He escapes, then is caught again.  They guys makes him drive to downtown LA to buy some crack.  I keep thinking - David!  Wake up, do something...you can get away from him...grow a spine!  Then the guy offers him some crack!  he says no, but is told that he will be shot if he doesn't  so he does!  I am getting really upset at this point!!!  Dexter would so get his guy (duct tape him up and dispense his justice)- why is David such a victim? Then he has to drive bad guy to Long Beach - makes him catch a dog, then beats the crap out of David. leaving him for dead.  I was so frustrated!  He had so many chances to get free.

Why did this effect me so deeply?  Do I play victim, but really want to be an avenger?  I just felt like I had to get this out...sorry for the rambling!

OMG!!! I love Dexter. I don't have showtime but they started playing it on a local station here (edited of corse) I loved it so much. I bought the 1st season on DVD because I felt like I was missing alot with the editing and all. That show is amazing!!! I will have to check out 6 feet under. I didn't know that "Dexter" was in that too!!

I haven't watched Dexter - but my kids all love it!

However I was (and am) a GIANT "Six Feet Under" fan!!! It is excellent. I mean EXCELLENT!

That whole episode with David is amazing and a huge turning point. Keep watching!!

It's an amazing show!

Brenda is on "Brothers & Sisters," Nate is on a new show that got hurt by the strike (something about money, set in NYC).

It's fun seeing the characters that I know and love as "Fishers" on other shows!
