Anyone Want to Write "Dexter" Recaps for Pajiba?

Hey Folks —

Given the success of Dan’s “Lost” recaps, I wanted to run recaps of a couple more Pajiba-like shows here on the site. S.P. Ashworth has been kind enough to volunteer her services for the “FlashForward” recaps, and the other show I’d like to cover is “Dexter,” since it seems like an appropriate show to cover — it’s thematically interesting, complex enough to discuss at length, and it would seem to suit our audience (for the record, I don’t think it’s terribly appropriate to recap sitcoms — there’s not really a lot to say that isn’t contained within the show).

So, I’m soliciting volunteers. The bad news: You’ll be paid in my gratitude only. The good news: There’s a good amount of exposure available, and you’ll be subject to an angry group of commenters, who will take pains to rip you apart. It’s not for the thin-skinned, but if you’re an aspiring writer, it’s a wonderful opportunity for rejection feedback.

I don’t really know a better way of doing this other than to ask those who might be interested to submit a recap of the first episode of “Dexter.” I’ll run the best one, and ask that person to stay on to write recaps for the other 12 episodes this year. No one would be expected to provide recaps as detailed and exceptional as Dan’s — he’s a paid professional, after all — but we are looking for recaps that are informative, interesting, and entertaining. A knowledge of the entire series is a necessary requirement.

If you’re interested in writing the recaps, please email a recap of episode number one to dustin at pajiba dot com.
