Hello I am the movie encyclopedia and if no one else will see it, I will.
Try as I might I could not find a dissapointing episode of Twin Peaks. And any episode that I could have had a problem with would give away the entire series so I won't do that cuz I'm not mean like that. Instead I'll go with Dexter because it is a LOT easier to find problems with Dexter than it is Twin Peaks. It's mostly easier because I can pinpoint an entire season that I considered the worst. Fans of the show will know what I'm talking about. That's right...
Dexter- 3/4ths of Season 3-
That may seem a bit broad but out of the 12 episodes in the season I could only find three good ones. That's right...three. And that was stretching it.
The main problem with Dexter season 3 is it tries to hard to change things up. I understand that the character of Dexter is constantly evolving and growing into a bigger and bigger entity but there is such a thing as too much development. The nice thing about the first two seasons is that he was a mix of darkly funny, devious, nerdy in yet he was growing as a person. In season 3, he seems to have somewhat established himself and instead let's the family and others control his actions and decisions.
Here's what I mean: Dexter learns Rita is pregnant. Rita's pregnancy hinders a good portion of his home and work life throughout this season and won't let up. On top of that Dexter proposes and gets married to Rita. That's not a bad thing except that the whole home situation takes away from the greatness that is Dexter. Either he's "Whoa wacky hijinks jee I can't be a dad!" or he's bumbling around like an idiot catering to the other problem: Miguel Prado. Jimmy Smits is not a bad actor but in this situation it was just not working for him. Dexter as an apprentice doesn't work. Dexter with a partner doesn't work. Dexter letting his secret out doesn't work. A lot of it doesn't work.
But besides the intro of Quinn, the new detective, the wedding itself, and maybe the finale despite the killer going out on a sour note, the series was bunk. But luckily it redeemed itself with season 4.
