If HBO uses the tag line "It's not TV, it's HBO," then here is our suggestion for Showtime: "It's not HBO, but it's just as good."
Case in point: "Dexter," aka our new favorite show. "Dexter" is winding down as this Sunday marks the second to last episode of the season. Where has the year gone?
So this week, the Ice Truck Killer kidnaps someone very close to Dexter, forcing Dexter to play a deadly game of hide-and-seek. But we all know the Ice Truck Killer has a thing for Dexter, but it isn't about killing him -- it's personal. TMZ TV Theory Alert!!!! The Ice Truck Killer (aka Rudy, Deb's boyfriend) is Dexter's brother. Just a theory; don't hold us to it.
In this clip from Sunday's penultimate episode, Dexter begins to sense a sinister side of Rudy and goes to his apartment to find evidence. Anyone who watches "Dexter" knows you do NOT want Dexter poking into your business -- it won't end well.
Ok, so while "Dexter" is winding down, "Sleeper Cell" is coming back for its second season. Beginning Sunday night, "Sleeper Cell" airs every night for a week straight, culminating in the finale on December 17 -- airing right before the "Dexter" finale. So don't call us that night.
In a sneak peek from Sunday's premiere, Undercover agent Darwyn Al-Sayeed has a "just when I thought I was out they pull me back in" moment, when he is brought back into the mix when a new cell is to be activated and funding is needed.
