The Dexter Chat Room Where No One Chats About Dexter

Dexter

Showtime announced they have set up a microsite where fans can watch short clips of interviews with Dexter’s Eric King and C.S. Lee and executive producers Sara Colleton, John Goldwyn and Clyde Phillips and talk with other fans in a chatroom, where you can apparently discuss your favorite Dexter moment:

Meebo vp business Martin Green said this project is the “perfect” case of how to use the Web to complement a TV program. “People like to talk about the shows they care about with other people,” Green said. “It can be very powerful for a brand like Showtime, which has these followings, to provide a place for that discussion, particularly when they have extra content.” [Hollywood Reporter]

Really, guys? A chatroom? Really? While I applaud your web bravado, isn’t that a little 90′s? Didn’t chatrooms kind of go the way of AOL townhalls? Isn’t this the worst way of attracting fans to the show, by giving them a way to talk about themselves, their relationships, and start fights with each other?

I’ve even gone deep undercover inside these said chatrooms to bring you what really goes on inside Showtime’s Dexter microsite. To put it briefly, there is plenty of talk about Salute Your Shorts, farts, monsters and goonies.
