If you watch only one police procedural on TV–and you probably should watch only one police procedural on TV–make it Dexter (Showtime, debuts Sunday), in which Michael C. Hall of Six Feet Under plays a serial killer who channels his impulses into finding and murdering other murderers. Hall is creepily appealing. The show’s meditations on morality are fascinating: is it a person’s actions or a person’s nature and thoughts that make him good or evil? The cases are fairly well plotted. Beyond that–well, I reviewed it here, so I’m not going to expound further. As the man sang:

              When I have nothing to say, my lips are sealed.
              Say something once, why say it again?

Fa fa fa faaa fa, fa fa fa faaa fa, and have a nice weekend.
