Does piracy help or hurt the industry? Heading into 2014, that's the riddle that still has a variety of answers depending on who you ask. There are some who say that that being able to "sample" music (or movies or films) first leads to folks buying concert tickets, DVDs or merchandise, thus still providing a revenue stream to the creative people and content creators behind those efforts. Others say that theft is theft, and that an album or movie downloaded is still a lost album or ticket sale. And even at HBO, opinion is divided, as their most popular show is also their most illegally downloaded.

As widely derided as the "Breaking Bad" finale was praised, Showtime's "Dexter" serial killer drama also came to an end recently, and many fans were not happy. While we're still a season behind, even someone not following the show only had to turn to social media over the run of its final episodes, to see the criticism flying left and right, and producer John Goldwyn puts the blame squarely on the network.

Clear History
“Adventureland” director Greg Mottola has made himself something of a second home on television. He spent the early part of the new millennium directing episodes of shows like “Undeclared” and “Arrested Development,” and last year he directed a few episodes of HBO series “The Newsroom.” For his next film, he’s sticking with the legendary cable network, delivering the comedy “Clear History,” and a teaser for the film has arrived online.

After spinning its wheels for the last couple of seasons, "Dexter" ended season six with a helluva cliffhanger, with the lead serial killer's cop sister literally catching him in the act. As we already know, season seven will begin right where we left off (in case you missed it, you can watch the first two minutes of the first episode here). Now, a new trailer has dropped for the upcoming season, and it appears that Dexter will be playing a game of cat and mouse to keep the depths of his crimes under wraps.

As piss-poor as "Dexter" has been for most of the last couple of seasons, the show did at least leave off Season Six with a killer cliffhanger, one the show had been building towards since the opening. Just as our friendly neighborhood forensic scientist/serial killer puts the killing blow into the season's big bad, Travis Marshall (Colin Hanks), his adopted sister Debra (who had earlier realized that she was in love with him; don't ask...) walked in on him.

In the world of “Dexter,” where the protagonist is a serial killer, the term "bad guy" is kind of relative. But regardless, Dexter has come up against a fair few of them throughout the show's six seasons. Still going strong over on Showtime, "Dexter" is now gearing up for its seventh season (while the eighth has also already been commissioned) and has lined up a solid name to play that season’s big baddie.
