Dexter, Game of Thrones, and Breaking Bad are my three favorite ongoing TV shows

I'll praise Dexter seasons 1-4 to no end, 5 a little less but I just can't defend 6, it was fucking awful. Season 7 has so much potential, enough to put them back on the quality of the first 4 seasons, I pray that they don't fuck it up.

Out of curiosity, what was wrong with S6 for you? I've heard a lot of criticism of the season but nothing to back it up with. I personally loved it (not as much as the previous seasons but still), especially with the spiritual journey/faith theme.

[SPOILER] To me it felt very dumbed down and poorly written. Dexter felt unstoppable like he could do whatever he wanted with no consequences. I felt every important plot kind of died a couple of episodes later, nothing seemed to have a lasting effect. Like I almost completely forgot about both Gellar and Brother Sam by the final episode. The religious aspect I felt was a logical step for Dexter's character but I don't think they handled it well at all. He gives religion a try and tries to help Travis escape his dark passenger but then it turns out that Travis is not worth saving so in the end Dexter just hates religion. The Travis and Gellar twist was very weak, I liked the SAW style stuff Gellar would pull off but Travis would just act on pure coincidence or what he calls faith. I even hated Dexter's dialogue, he was more serious than previous seasons and he would mention the dark passenger every other line, and the moments with Harry became so frequent that it became annoying. For the most part my problem with season 6 is that there are so many stupid fucking moments that it just became insulting:
-Opening scene where Dexter calls two paramedics in to kill them and somehow doesn't get investigated for it.
-Dexter having sex with a girl from his high school and then again with a random girl from Nebraska just felt out of character.
-Dexter assaulting a thug with a bat in front of Brother Sam and another thug without any fear that either of the thugs posed a threat to him
-Dexter surviving a huge explosion like its a fucking action movie
-Dexter having to swim hundreds of miles, getting picked up by an immigration boat and killing the threats on the boat like its nothing.
-Everyone treating Dexter like he's God at that one crime scene where his face is painted on the wall....just
-Dexter actually giving in and alerting the police about the napalm, but not disguising his voice and somehow no one even reviews the tape
-The episode "Nebraska" was fun but at the same time it was the only Dexter episode ever where they suddenly took a break from the main plot.
-Dexter sending Travis a tape with him in front of his boat somehow is supposed to alert Travis that Dexter would be at his boat that night?
-Quinn acting like a moron the entire season.
-The police station somehow being active an hour after a napalm attack.
-Doing nothing with the Mike Anderson character
-I don't have a problem with the incest plot, even I thought of it in the first season but overall I feel like this realization was completely uncalled for.
-Somehow nobody noticing Travis even though he barely puts on a disguise, his face is shown to the public and he drives right in front of his currently being investigated crime scene.

Those are really just off the top of my head, I can go on and on.
[/SPOILER]

Phil's voice is going the way of Brian Johnson and Kerry King can't solo for his life, but that's not news.

I am getting ready for the new Resident Evil movie... so...
A few nights ago I watched Resident Evil: Extinction again, not bad, not the best either.

Last night I watched RE: Afterlife, far better than I remember it being. Sure it had some cheesy moments (Clare vs big monster dude in the shower) but overall I liked it more than Extinction.
