Showtime released the trailer for Dexter's upcoming season seven, which undeniably left fans meticulously analyzing its frames.
With all eyes on the brother-sister/lieutenant-criminal relationship between Michael C. Hall's Dexter and Jennifer Carpenter's Deb, little room was left for the rest of the characters, leaving Quinn (Desmond Harrington) and Batista (David Zayas) completely out of the trailer and the new possible baddie, Louis Greene (Josh Cooke), with a mere couple shots.

“It’s how it should be - hunter, prey. Let the game begin.”
At some point during every season of Dexter, we all ask ourselves the same question: “How the hell is he going to get out of this one?”
It’s time to hit replay.
When the Showtime series returns on September 26, Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) will have to add “single father” and “grieving husband who shows know emotions” to his list of responsibilities. How is he going to juggle it all and keep Quinn (Desmond Harrington) off his track? And how the heck does Julia Stiles figure into all of this?? I’m dying to know.

ABC Family’s highly-touted new series, Pretty Little Liars, debuts tonight. The pilot episode will repeat back-to-back-to-back in a three hour mini-marathon starting at 8pm EST. The program, based on the book series by Sara Shepard, details a group of four friends who find their secrets exposed by a fifth friend who’s supposed to be deceased. Pretty freaky.
The cable network has picked the series up for a 10-episode run, standard procedure for the channel. Massive promotion suggests ABC Family’s faith in Liars, but only Tuesday’s premiere will reveal how the fans react.
If you were confused by the first trailer for True Blood‘s upcoming third season, perhaps this new, extended one can provide some insight…
I, for one, am extremely relieved to know somewhat who the bearded guy on the bed with Sookie is. Will Jason actually do something productive this season? Perhaps most importantly, who can resist a trailer with so much Eric?
Fans can catch the HBO season premiere on June 13.

NBC’s Heroes replacement, The Cape, recently premiered its full-length trailer. While I may not have agreed with where Heroes ended up, at least its initial premise beat this one’s: good cop gets framed and is left for dead; guy is found by a clandestine group who trains him to be a superhero; superhero fights crime.
One might say that it’s to be expected, it’s a superhero series. True, but isn’t that what we have comic books for? In our current world of Lost theorists and Fringe fanatics, it’s easy to see that viewers want more complex stories with quickly (but slowly) unearthed mythologies. While I can’t say much considering it’s just the trailer (which you can view after the jump), all I’m saying is that the trailer isn’t selling me, and I’m thinking that this alone may be better than the pilot.
Will I watch it? Of course—what else will be left with all these cancellations lately?
And as much as I love her, and as much as I hate saying this… I’m willing to bet that Summer Glau will be out of a job (again) by the end of the year.

Minisodes can be fun, but they’re never really as juicy as an actual trailer.
If you want to see what happens during Season 3 (rather than before it), check out the new True Blood trailer above.
If those thirty seconds weren’t enough, you can then check out Minisodes #2 and #3 after the jump.
She’s a Golden Globe winner, an Emmy winner and a three-time Oscar nominee. Now, Laura Linney is facing her biggest title yet: cancer patient.

The Big C will debut Monday, August 16 @ 10:30.

“If I’ve learned one thing, it’s ‘Like everybody and trust no one’” - a sentence that could have been said by anyone on The Hills, or by someone simply watching it.
Although MTV’s reality series will (finally) come to an end this year, it will do so with a ton-o-drama. What’s in store for Season 6? “Heidi 3.0” finally meets
her parents; Audrina finds herself drawn to Ryan Cabrera’s excuse for a hairstyle; Kristin is accused of being a drug user; Brody finds a new woman he hasn’t already dated; Spencer gets emotional; and the “D” word is actually uttered.
The Hills kicks off its final round on April 27.
