"Dexter": the High Holidays edition

October 9, 2008 | 10:58 am

The opening titles of "Dexter" set the tone perfectly for the Showtime series: the scenes of the eponymous killer getting  ready to face the day reference both the violent and the mundane and the quirky music only adds to the winking creepiness.  A handful of parodies of the credits have been filmed but lately I've enjoyed "Dessler," Dan Schanler's Jewish take on the intro.  I admit that I don't get all the references (not being one of the God's chosen people) but the parody is clever and well-made. And who doesn't like borscht?
