Showtime Sunday’s Abscence

Sorry for the long absence of Showtime Sunday’s guys. Our schedules here at On Request Magazine have been chaotic as of late, and keeping up with Showtime’s Dexter and new hit drama Ray Donavon have been difficult. Let me give you a run-down on what’s been happening thus far, and then hopefully we’ll be able to stay on top of this stuff better.

Dexter has seen everyone’s favorite serial killer struggling big time with his sister, Deb, who has become seriously messed up after being forced to shot LaGuerta instead of her brother at the end of last season. Deb, (whose portrayal by actress Jennifer Carpenter is greatly underrated and deserves some Emmy love, which was lacking this year as a whole right along with Michael C. Hall’s performance as Dexter and the show as a whole), has been drinking, doing drugs, and even quit the department. Dexter, unable to handle his sister spiraling out of control, has been struggling as she has completely cut him out of her life. Also, as an added stress, Hall is dealing with a new serial killer in Miami, dubbed the Brain Surgeon, and learns that an FBI psychologist, Dr. Evelyn Vogel, has come to Dexter, saying she knows about his secret life and is the one who helped Harry come up with the Code that Dexter has followed all his life.

Meanwhile, on Ray Donavon, the freshman drama finds Liev Schrieber playing Ray, a fixer for the elite class in Hollywood, whose life is turned upside down when his criminal father is released from prison, and comes to L.A. to stir up trouble for Ray. Ray, having put his father in prison, struggles as he finds his wife and kids drawn to their grandfather and father-in-law, hoping to build a relationship with him when Ray’s father claims to seek penance with his son. Also duped into believing him is Ray’s brothers, one who struggles with Parkinson’s Disease, another who struggles greatly after being sexually abused as a child by a priest, and a new brother whom he learns he has who is half African-American. On top of this, one of the women Ray has helped begins making sexual advances on him, and he must deal with both his lover, his wife and kids, his twisted family, and the problems of the rich in L.A. This show has quickly become a new hit on Showtime, and looks to fill a big void that will be left when Dexter airs it’s final episode.

Hopefully we can get back to watching these great shows regularly, but no matter what, watch Dexter and Ray Donavon Sunday’s on Showtime.
