Dexter Season 1. 650 minutes in 3 days.
Category : TV
I just recently finished watching a show called Dexter. My friend loaned it to me and when I gave it back to him a few days later he thought I didn’t like it. That was not the case, as I actually finished watching 1 whole season in 3 days. Believe me, this is not what I had planned. This all started with 1 episode.
I usually love to watch shows like C.S.I., Criminal Minds, The First 48 and so on, but I have never seen Dexter before. My friend told me about it and told me what it was about, it seemed interesting. The show is about a guy named Dexter Morgan who is a blood spatter analyst and helps catching killers. However, he has a tendency to kill. Ok, so basically he is a killer, but only kills bad people. So what does that make him? Good or Bad? Anyway, I put Disc 1 in and laid in my bed since it was about 11:30pm. Watched the first episode, damn it was good but I need to get to bed since I had work at 9am the next day and each episode is about 50 minutes each. Ah, screw it, I have to know what happens next. Episode 2 ends. Ah man, they can’t leave me hanging like this. I said to myself I’ll just get to bed early the next day, so I ended up watching another episode. It was around 2:30am and I told myself I will just watch the intro to see what happens next then I can get to sleep. Episode 4 ends. Just couldn’t help it, it keeps getting better. I finally decided to get to sleep since it was about 3:30am.
Day 2. Next night came. It was about 11:00pm and I said to myself, Ok tonight I will watch 1 episode then go to sleep since I have work at 9:00am and I was currently running on about 4 hours of sleep from the night before. Episode 5 ends. Nope I am not going to sleep until I find out what happens. Episode 6 ends. 1 more thats it. Episode 7 ends and it was around 2:00am. I refuse to let it end here. Episode 8 ends. OK that’s it I am done, it’s almost 3:00am and I have to be to work at 9:00am.
Day 3.Got home from work around 6pm and I was extremely tired, I do not know how I made it through the day, but I did. I said to myself I will just watch 1 more episode then get some rest. Episode 9 and 10 ends. It is now about 8pm and I got pretty hungry and was still tired. Since the plot was getting way to good and I had to see the ending I ended up getting a few snacks and watching the last 2 episodes.
Some rest huh? Well what can I say? I am a loser right? HAHA. Well come to find out my friend watched the season in a few days also. Glad I am not the only loser around here 😉 . Despite the lack of sleep in those 3 days, the season was real good and I can’t wait for season 2 to come out. As I am sure I will get that right away!
