Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall), the hero of Showtime’s new series “Dexter,” is a smart, wittily self-aware homicidal maniac in the tradition of Richard III and Hannibal Lecter. But Dexter is a made-for-television serial killer: he kills only people who deserve to die.
I missed the first episode but I caught the second one last night. I’ll admit I tuned in because I enjoy that Mr. Hall.
I enjoyed him as a over-coiffed uptight gay guy in Six Feet Under and I really enjoy him as a moussed-up sociopath.
It’s pretty interesting what hair can mean … what hair can do. Indeed, there have been theses written about the meaning of hair.
But the funny thing is that David Fisher (of the tidy hair) looks more like a sociopath than Dexter — who looks kinda like a rock star or perhaps a writer.
It’s the hair. Hair talks.
