‘Dexter’: The Greatest TV Intro of All Time?


The above is the original, although we prefer the one with “Special Guest – John Lithgow”. Why? Because he’s 3rd Rock from the So Creepy.

It’s the sounds and the close-ups. You can smell the breakfast. You can feel the shoestrings tightening around his fingers. You know what each of these scenes is, and you want to do them all right away. You see the link between blood and murder and the carnal ingestion of a grapefruit. Everyone’s morning routine is completely violent.

And, boy, don’t you just want to eat ham when it’s all done?
