    Four entries in and The Thin Man series doesn't really have anything new to offer. Shadow has all the same kind of jokes, murder mystery and dog reaction shots as the previous three, at this point boiled down to a precise formula of fun, booze and twists. Luckily, that's not a bad thing, because all that stuff is really great, and the two leads remain exceptional. Moving forward I know exactly what I can expect with the remaining two films in the series, but I also know I'll have a damn good time watching them all the same.

    Really glad this turned out as great as it did! A much better note to leave things off on than season 8 ever was, and my god did Michael C. Hall slip right back into the role without missing a beat. Felt really nice to spend some more quality time with Dexter Morgan for a few months.
