'Dexter': Kill for an Emmy [Video spoof]

June 2, 2011 |  3:30 pm

Our devilishly clever forums moderator Matt Noble takes on the killer persona of TV's Dexter Morgan to give us a new (and very bloody) perspective on Emmy's top drama races. For the past three years, "Dexter" has lost best series to "Mad Men" and Michael C. Hall has lost lead actor to Bryan Cranston ("Breaking Bad"). Noble imagines that Hall's character -- a secret serial killer -- can't stand the outrages any more and so now he picks up a kitchen blade to deal with it.

"It's the third time they both killed 'Dexter's' chances and they keep on getting away with it," he fumes in this video spoof. "Not this time. This time I take things into my own hands. 'Mad Men' is too big a target. People would notice its absence and ask too many questions. But 'Breaking Bad' -- I can do something about that."

Technically, "Breaking Bad" isn't Emmy eligible this year because no new episodes aired during the eligibilty period, but, hey, why ruin a good joke? Let's go with this narrative and assume "Breaking Bad" isn't around because, well, Dexter took care of business.
