Did you know there was an Emmy for best main title design? One company that knows all about it is Digital Kitchen, who in 2002 won for their stunning work on the Six Feet Under opener, and scored big again last year with the titles for Dexter.

Dexter made its free to air debut in Australia this week, but both seasons were already over with on subscription television, with Foxtel’s new Showcase channel launching itself on the back of everyone’s favourite serial killer.

I watched both seasons of Dexter over summer, and became enthralled with the adventures of the dysfunctional Dexter Morgan, which brings me to my question..

Why didn’t Ten just pick this up in the first place? Free to air television isn’t exactly proving its relevance by letting Dexter (and others) make their debuts on pay TV.

Great show, really really enjoy it! I don’t think Ten have done it any justice with their advertising and idents. They bring the show down a little.

Similar things happened in the UK, FX aired Season 1 last year around now, and ITV1 aired it a few months back.

FX just started Season 2 last Sunday and in HD tonight and the mass media are acting as if FX has stolen it from ITV, when ITV only had the terrestrial rights in the first place.

Ah well Dexter in HD 5.1 only hour and a bit left!
