 Abso-bloody-lutely.

Had Foxtel for a bit. $65 a month or what I wanted. Even then I had to search forages to find something  I wanted, and thy had audacity to have ads--- 

I've had Netflix for a couple of years and think it's great. At $AU14 a month I think it's pretty good value..

RE: Eight years later, 'Dexter' is returning for a ninth season
So it ended for good. Unless



It was nice that they changed the settings from urban to a rural town.
teachings of the Bible are so muddled and self-contradictory that it was possible for Christians to happily burn heretics alive for five long centuries. It was even possible for the most venerated patriarchs of the Church, like St. Augustine and St. Thomas Aquinas, to conclude that heretics should be tortured (Augustine) or killed outright (Aquinas). Martin Luther and John Calvin advocated the wholesale murder of heretics, apostates, Jews, and witches. - Sam Harris, "Letter To A Christian Nation"

But he only kills bad people. That’s the catch. 😉

But how do we know they're bad people? We've only his word for it.

This kind of programming is highly problematic, it give's licence to those who go after paediatricians because they don't understand language.
As a species, we are fucked. To the next generation, I offer my inadequate apologies.

Dexter is not a "hero", he's an anti-hero. Some people only enjoy watching fictional characters that are innocent and wholesome; Superman if you will. I know some people like that. Others enjoy that as well as flawed characters who are morally ambiguous. These characters are probably the most popular nowdays. If you don't enjoy such characters, then you won't be able to enjoy a lot of material because this sort of character is all over the place. If anything, I believe morally ambiguous characters do a much better job of making them relatable because few real humans are innocent beyond reproach. Most of us have our nasty side and don't relate that well to characters that are super duper goodies.
Why is it so?

I’m sorry, I’m not quite following you.
