Yvonne Strahovski (Sarah on "Chuck") joining Dexter for multi-episode arc...

http://www.tvguide.com/News/Yvonne-S...k-1048796.aspx

WOOOOOO! Aside from a tiny role in that Killer Elite movie, I've never seen her in anything but Chuck so I'm psyched to see what she brings to the show... I said since I came across Chuck that she's one of the hottest people on TV so I'm definitely curious to see what her role on a MA rated cable show will bring (lol).

This is the first piece of Dexter news that actually has me even remotely psyched for the new season--last year was such an epic train wreck and that one particular story direction they're going in had me considering if I was even gonna watch it (mostly just because I feel like the show is getting tired), but this is changing my attitude.

To those of us that have never seen "Chuck", this is Miranda / StraHOTski from Mass Effect.

Yeah that doesn't do anything to help me know who she is.

This may be enough to subscribe to SHO for a couple of months while this is on....and put my Mad Men and Breaking Bad viewing on hold and catch up on Dexter (I'm halfway through S2 )

Well not sure there's much eye candy on BB for anyone but all the violence, drugs and overall awesome should outweigh that!

That's one thing about Breaking Bad, it's almost freakishly void of any legitimate eye candy. I guess girls have Jesse (if you're into meth heads) but there really isn't any for guys. Just sayin'.

Ha. I was kidding. I don't watch any of the shows she's been in but I knew who she was the minute the Chuck reference was made.
As for Jesse being eye candy. No. Aaron Paul is an attractive guy and as much as I love the character of Jesse and root for him to be the last man standing on that show, I do not find anything hot about him, yo.

Yeah I wasn't sure if girls see him as eye candy but I didn't think so. Then again I'm sure there's someone out there who finds angst ridden drug fiends hot.

I can't think of a show that took a bigger nosedive in a season than Dexter. To go from such an incredible show to utter $#!& in a season was so disappointing. To waste Edward James Olmos and Mos Def for a season makes it even moreso.

It has fallen so far that any guest star couldn't get me back into it, eye candy or not. I'll just watch Season 2 and 4 on DVD instead.

Would be even more fun if Chuck and Casy join her. Maybe they will show up as Dexter side project.

lol, I kind of feel the same way but I've invested enough in the to give it a few episodes before I dump it (I very rarely stop watching a show after this long). I've noticed with Dexter that it's very up and down and given the fact that last season was a horrific disaster, I'm hoping this season is awesome (I know, not likely).

From a general TV-geek standpoint, I always love when actors from a show I'm a big fan of cross over onto another show I'm into... it doesn't happen often enough...
