There are certain characteristics of TV characters that are generally associated with particular quirks, lifestyles or personalities. One of them is boats. There are a lot of characters with boats; but there´s a whole different thing for those who live on their boats, or have their boats as a character in itself. And I don´t mean the Love Boat. I´ll review three clear examples of boats as a part of the storyline to help us know the main character more.
The episode just ended, and as usual, I am about to do my weekly full review article citing the best quotes and moments from Dexter´s episode. So, if you haven´t watched it yet. Beware… spoilers ahead.
I´m luckily on a roll. I just finished On These Courts by Wayne Drash, a book that deserved five stars and went on to read Unthinkable by Clyde Phillips next. Another five stars book.

And that opening scene between her and Dexter is priceless and also makes for a very successful directorial debut by Michael C Hall himself. Continue reading →
