Featured TV on DVD Review: Key and Peele: Season Three

Featured TV on DVD Review: NCIS: Season Eleven

Featured TV on DVD Review: Dexter: Season Seven

May 13th, 2013

During the first five seasons of Dexter, there was only one season that I didn't think was amazing. Season four had the best John Lithgow guest star in the show's run.

In fact, I thought season six was the weakest season in the show's run so far. The only part that really worked was the cliffhanger finale. Because of this, expectations for season seven are mixed.
