  1. I noticed this in the trailer too. Is noone gonna mention the cold sore or whatever that is? Did he have that in the last ep? Couldn't they put on some make up?

    Not bothered by it but, yeah.

    3. Everyone has breaks out. Newsflash dear, Michael C. Hall is just like you and I, a person. A person who can still break out and have imperfections. It's called being a human, celebrities aren't made of plastic.

    1. He had a rough night I imagine. :p

    2. If I look like him when i'm 40 i'm going to be happy.

      Delete
    3. That's because he IS old.

      He's 41, so no spring chicken and yet he seems to like dating girls at least 10-15 years younger than him. Good luck with that Mr Hall. He is such a cliche.

      I like the poster. He looks beat up. Dexter is going to be under so much scrutiny, I would imagine, so I find it quite apt.

      I love the shots of Deb in the promo. Coming out of the darkness and into the light. Her character is actually becoming the most interesting in this tv show. If they're not careful, she will supersede Dexter... All credit to Carpenter. Her performances blow everyone else out of the water...

      Delete
    4. IMO, Deb is the most captivating character and Jennifer's acting abilities do 'blow everyone out of the water'. Deb is the "normal" Morgan that I can identify with - with all her flaws, strengths and personal growth.

      Deb's character has developed and grown, she has not remained stagnant which can't be said for some of the other characters and to some degree even Dexter. I'm looking forward to S7.

      Delete
    5. More like, dating girls 20 years younger than him. He's doing what any typical man in his position would do, enjoying the fruits of his fame and that includes famishing all the young girls that throw themselves at him.

      Extraordinary talent but Typical man.

    6. Jennifer better than MCH? Please. No doubt she is fantastic and riveting to watch. But for the first time in Season 6 she got stale. The same trembling vocals and quivering lips can get old. If it wasn't for those outstanding scenes with the shrink, I would have written a letter of protest saying the show is called Dexter not Debra.
      Sure the character requires a larger than life persona, but all her films have shown a style of performance that is always on full gas. Even in her most emotionally draining scenes (I'm what's wrong..I'm broken), she is full on.
      In contrast, Michael may be damn good with words, but he does not need them at all...for minutes at a time. What he is able to achieve while his voice-over are running over his face is something that would have a lot of great actors in trouble. Michael makes it look easy, like he's not acting at all. That is true greatness.

    8. I don't get the feeling that anyone is saying that MCH isn't a great actor?

      What is merely being recognised is that Deb as a character has become as interesting as, and for some people maybe slightly more interesting than, the character of Dexter, at this point in time. Simply because she is the one that has developed and changed the most over the course of 6 seasons. What awaits her and the reactions she will have is as paramount as to what will happen to Dexter. I feel the show has ceased being just about Dexter. Deb and Dex are so entwined now, especially in view of the fact she has now seen (and knows, although how much she knows will be revealed). The story is now about the two of them, how they now relate and what they now will do etc. Whether you are impressed by Carpenter or not, the fact remains that the character of Deb is as fascinating as Dexter.

      Or not. I'm aware it is only opinion.

  4. Omg people really ? Its the moment of truth he have to look like this or do u want him to look happy ?

    ReplyDelete
  5. Well, this discussion made me wonder how the classical retouched version would look like and as I like to mess around Photoshop, I tried to make a quick retouch to it for comparison, so if you want, here you can find it: http://tinyurl.com/7rjsqg3 :)
    Anyway, I might like the "realistic" one better - it seems very fitting to the whole theme...

    BTW I must say I love the new background, John - it would never occur to me to use the "truth brings light" promo this way and it is brilliant :)

    3. Thank you, but it was really easier than it seems - I'm quite a noob in Photoshop :) And yes, I also like the original more, a) it looks more appropriate given the situation, b) MCH doesn't really need to be retouched, he looks good for his age and we all do age after all, so why hide it? I just wanted to "visualize" what would look better... :)

    1. WOW. Real mature. Just because a person doesn't worship everything he does - does not mean they HATE him.

    2. I agree with 2.55

      One can differentiate between the art, the artist and the man.

      One can appreciate and admire the art and even the talents of the artist and yet not respect the behaviour of the man behind it all if so wished. Doesn't mean anyone hates anybody. I'm not one for sycophantic worshipping. If Hall was in his 20s I could understand the behaviour. I don't think there is anything wrong with wishing that he would just grow up a bit! Maybe then he will stand a chance at some real happiness. Two failed marriages to two beautiful and talented women is a sorrowful affair. He is 'sad'.

      His talents as an actor are unquestionable though. And Dexter is an interesting vehicle...

    3. Anonymous 1:13 is right. Just because you think MCH is responsible for his second divorce you don't stop criticizing him and his character as if Dexter was a minor character and Debra the central character of the show.
      Stop judging the behavior or the life of people that you don't know. You are immature, you are like children whose parents divorced and who choose to defend one of their parents against the other one.

      Delete
    4. way to miss the point 6:22. no one's picking sides. seriously. just because you choose to treat him like an untouchable God, does not mean everyone else has to share your idolization. he's human. treat him as such.

      Delete
    5. Anonymous 5:28, you don't have a clue as to why those marriages didn't work. Calling him "sad" makes you presumptious with a chip on your shoulder about something you may have experienced personally. Going by how well MCH and JC have been getting on post-divorce, there just might be a reason other than infidelity as to why it didn't work.
      Check out his interviews before you hold forth so (un) wisely. His first wife had a career that relied entirely on New York and Broadway. He was to return to NY after a 5 year bi-coastal relationship during "Six Feet Under". When he got tempted to do "Dexter" for an indefinite period, things got difficult to work out. It happens. It doesn't make the people sad or bad. Grow up.

      Delete
    6. Wow. Obviously touched a sore point.

      Actually I was not speculating as to why his marriages broke up. You went on to do that yourself.

      When I said 'sad' I meant worthy of compassion. Two failed marriages is bound to hurt regardless of who or what is to blame. He will be suffering, as we all do. I don't believe dating women of a younger generation is going to help. That is my opinion, and I'm entitled to it. You are entitled to disagree with it.

      And if I am being asked to spend money that will go towards directly lining the pockets of someone, I would prefer it if it was someone I respected, with similar values. I admire his acting talents, and I admire the show as it is enormously complex and challenging. That does not mean I have to love and adore a man whose personal behaviour and choices are perhaps misguided.

      I don't think that makes me immature. Quite the opposite.

      I'm sorry if one has to be a scyophant in order to post here..

    7. Anonymous 12:26 - you tell someone that they don't have a clue as to why marriages don't work than you hypocritically pontificate why his first marriage didn't work! Well, I read in interviews that he did cheat repeatedly on both his wives - so according to you - that means it's true. I read it.

    8. Anonymous June 24, 10:22, I watched an interview he did in New Zealand where he spoke of his first and second marriage. I doid not speculate. I did say 'watch his interviews".

      Delete
    9. Anon June 24, 6:29, you are now back-pedalling away from your stand when you called him 'sad'. Who writes like that if they meant he was a sad/sorrowful person. You're pretty transparent in the cracks you've been taking at him.
      Your defence of your position that one can admire the talent of a person and still criticise their character makes it pretty clear that you were being derogratory in the way you wrote 'sad'. We're not dumb teenagers here - your flip flops in the stand you're taking are a bit pathetic.

    10. And one doesn't have to be a sycophant to be irritated by people like you who project your own hang-ups on the character of a popular celebrity.

    11. Why should the *private* life of an actor (or any artist) matter - in any way what-so-ever. It's their *private* business. I wouldn't discuss my *private* life with my boss/clients/customers either, as it is none of their business.

      Why are actors constantly expected to do so? Why is this divorce issue even public knowledge. It's nobody's business but THEIR own!
      Nobody has the right to make judgements on such private matters in the first place...even the most insane pay checks do not give the public/audience any authority over the *private* life of an individual...

      Delete
    12. People have always discussed other people's private lives - since the beginning of man kind. And this is America, people do have the "right" to have opnions and make comments and judgements on other people's lives. You honestly think that even though you don't discuss your private life with your boss/clients/customers that they don't talk about you? Please. No one is spared. So spare the self righteous sermons.

      Delete
    13. Anon 3:15, I thought I saw all his New Zealand interviews. Where is the link to the interview where he talks about his first wife?

    14. there is no interview where he talks about his first wife

    15. @ anon 6:50...I find making judgements on other people's lives/life-style pretty self righteous.
      I don't care what people may say behind my back...I don't give a sh**. I said that *I* won't discuss my private life with them, period. If people have nothing better to discuss than the private lives of others my oh my...and please spare me the whole freedom of speech sermon. The right to privacy is just as important.

      Delete
    16. anon 2:17, it's 2012, no one has privacy. and privacy is just as important as freedom of speech?! You sound like a nervous politician with something to hide. People will always talk about other people, it's the world we live in, so I hope you're happy living in denial. Warm wishes.

    2. If you care about an artist , you want them to be happy or, at the very least, free from suffering, right? You hope they can make the right choices both professionally and personally. It doesn't have to mean gossip. It can just mean having a genuine wish for someone whose talents you admire to make the right choices that will enable personal development, growth and ultimately long-lasting contentment, free from habitual patterns of destructive behaviour. Generally speaking, of course.

      I mean, take Mozart. What an amazing artist. And deeply troubled. In fact, maybe the two go hand in hand: that true greatness in talent stems from deep suffering..,

      This poster kind of reflects what I'm saying. Dexter, the character, is a master of his 'art', a true genius. And he is deeply troubled. Look at that face. Seriously haunted by his own demons and now that all laid bare for his sister to see. Quite brilliant.

      Delete
    3. NeedlestickinghedonistJune 24, 2012 at 5:20 PM

      and who are we to judge or criticise their choices? we don't know them, therefore we cannot take a position and there is no meaning in looking into anything they do in their own privacy. as long as an artist maintains a high level of performance, that's all i give a f**** about.

      Delete
    4. It may matter to someone if they are helping to pay the artist's wages.

      The problem with a tv show is that it pays many people's wages, so telling someone simply not to watch doesn't really cut it.

      Sigh. This is the way of the world as it currently stands. There is much wrong with it. And there is also much good too. It's all a matter of opinion. And the last time I looked, people in our country have the right to express them. Doesnt make them right. Doesnt make them wrong either. Its just one viewpoint out of many.

    5. Their *acting* should matter, not their private lives...if you're looking for role models, look else where.
