Dexter vs. Boardwalk Empire Head-to-Head
Ladies and Gentlemen, there is about to be a battle for your television viewing soul. The fall premiers are lining up for your attention. There’s not a night or hour of the week where you will lack for something new and original to watch. Now, the fact remains that within months half of these shows will no longer exist (some with good reason, some because their networks didn’t promote them effectively). Within a few months, the nightly landscape will have settled, some shows really hitting their stride and some hitting the road.

 

However, the battle I want to invite you to is one of two veterans, a battle that has raged at the upper end of your channel lineup for years. These are tales not of good men, but of dark and sometimes evil men; characters who strive for control over others and themselves. These figures aim to craft the world in a new image, the one that only they can see. Let’s introduce the contestants.

 

In the red corner, entering its second season on HBO, a period drama about bad men, bad women, and the city they call home. Weighing in at Sundays at 9 p.m., last years breakout hit, Boardwalk Empire.

 

In the blue corner, entering its sixth season on Showtime, a dark drama/mystery series about a man’s quest to rid the world of people like himself. Weighing in at Sundays at 9 p.m., the multiple Emmy award winning Dexter.

6 Comments So Far …

  1. Joey Boots Joey Boots says:
    Boardwalk Empire is the best show on tv in the last 20 years! I like Dexter, but it's kind of common. It's good, but B.E. is really unique. Steve Buscemi is also the best actor on tv!

  2. RitaS RitaS says:
    Thank god for dvr's... these two shows are the best on tv...great rivalry!

  3. PhotoCrater PhotoCrater says:
    Buscemi crushes it - but I think Dexter's a better show.

  4. Life In Melody Life In Melody says:
    Boardwalk Empire is by far my favorite show, with Dexter running a close second. However, I find Debra Morgan to be a more engaging, interesting, relatable female lead than Margaret. Especially in Season 2 of BE, where I felt Margaret's character was significantly weaker than in the first season.

  5. Ruyman Ruyman says:
    Great, great episode of a tferiric show definitely the best currently-airing show on television. Looking forward to another A+ season of Boardwalk Empire. I also missed the significance of the title of the episode, "21." Unless it has to do with prohibition/drinking age? But I don't believe there *was* a legal drinking age in most states before prohibition. Anyway I agree, I only wish this episode could have been extended, because I wasn't ready for it to end when it did.

  6. H.Dumansky H.Dumansky says:
    Hahah, My laptop crashed when I was browsing www.head-2-head.com last time I was here. And for the past 2 months I have been looking for this weblog, so thankful I located it once again! :D best regards!
