Here’s the trailer for the fourth season of Showtime’s “Dexter,” television’s #1 series about a lovable serial killer who kills other murderers. It debuted yesterday at Comic-Con, and as you can see, Dexter is dealing with a new baby son, a fellow serial killer played by John Lithgow, and a wife who’s all, “I need you to go to the 24-hour pharmacy!” And he’s like, “Uh, I’m tryin’ to kill people here!” Then he looks at the murderer he has shrink-wrapped to a table and sighs, “Women! Can’t live with ‘em, can’t kill them without raising police suspicion. Am I right?”

Showtime is creating 12 animated webisodes that will [act] as a “Dexter” prequel to the series. Titled “Earl Cuts,” the webisodes will explore how Dexter honed his killing craft. Michael C. Hall will do the voice, will be put online this fall. [The Live Feed]
That sounds necessary. As a side note, I like working on the Internet and all — I’m in my underwear as I write this — but I’m still not sure how I feel about the word “webisode.” I’m just not comfortable with the English language changing so quickly. Not unless I can make cockumentaries.
