    So my wife and I are late to the Dexter party and we are now caught up through season 4 which is the last one available on Netflix and we can't get enough!

    Other than Usenet, is there another way to watch the latest 2 seasons so that we can get caught up and the subscribe to Showtime and stay current?

    I've checked DirecTV's new MaxGo and it isn't available there.

    thanks,

    MaxGo is Cinemax not Showtime. Not that I know of, torrents are the way I caught up.

    There is no season 6. The most recent season, 5, will probably be out on DVD this summer.

    Actually, there is no Season 6 yet.

    Season 5 was the last that aired.

    I own Seasons 1-4, and am waiting for Season 5 to be released (I watched it on Showtime last year).

    well good to know I'm only 1 season behind now. Any idea when Season 6 will start so I can make sure I'm caught up?

    Which raises the question: Why do all these TV studios release the DVDs of previous seasons just a few days before the new season starts? Wouldn't they want people to buy the DVD, have time to watch it and get hooked in time for the new season to start? Instead, they release these DVDs usually less than a week before the start of the new season, and the average viewer just isn't going to sit down and watch a marathon of the show in order to get caught up for the new season. This is especially true for the premium channels, where getting someone hooked on the show in time might mean a new subscriber.

    Doubt they do it thinking people will catch up. More to let everyone know the show has some staying power and will be around awhile so why don't you start watching this new season.

    I believe season 5 is on Showtime on Demand, at least on Directv. Showtime is streets ahead of everyone else on Directv when it comes to on Demand stuff.

    Is there anyway to verify this? I've actually called Directv and nobody there could seem to verify it.

    If it is, I'll immediately subscribe to Showtime.
