Check out a Sneak Peek: Dexter Season 3 2nd episode "Finding Freebo" .
The National Enquirer reports in this weeks issue that actor Jimmy Smits, who plays district attorney Miguel Prado, stabbed an actor in the chest several times during a scene in which he accidentally picked up a real knife that was inexplicably put right next to a fake prop knife on set. Smits stabbed actor Jeff Chase in the chest with a knife he assumed was a prop. He easily could have killed him, but as luck had it Chase was wearing a chest plate, which saved his life. "During a horrific execution scene with actor Jeff Chase, Smits was so into the part he kept stabbing Chase ferociously with what he thought was a fake knife," a shaken eyewitness told the Enquirer.
TV Guide rounds up this week's top TV moments (spoilers included)! "Broken codes, meaningless kisses, and Spencer Pratt being obnoxious - it must be another week in the wonderful world of television. Here's our list of the top moments: 12. Most Desperate Dance: Lance Bass kisses a girl - and he likes it. The former 'N Syncer and his Dancing with the Stars partner Lacey Schwimmer spice up their paso doble with Katy Perry's bi-curious pop confection and a "controversial" man-woman kiss, a less-than-subtle wink at Bass' much-discussed sexuality. Check it out on our Online Video Guide. 11. Biggest Code Violation: Dexter kills a man outside of his father's code for the first time - and he's a prosecutor's brother. 10. Most Awkward Office Interaction: Mad Men 's alcoholic Freddy Rumsen's colleagues are divided between pity, horror, and excessive laughter when he wets his pants just before a big presentation. The awkwardness is almost rivaled later, when Rumsen acknowledges in his goodbye to Don that his mandatory six-month leave will last forever: "Goodnight, Freddy." "Goodbye, Don." 9. Best Tough Love: While we love Sylar's "New Yawk" FBI Agent impression ("You tryin' to get these looky-loo civilians killed?"), Claire's face-off with her flame-throwing biological mom Meredith is Heroes ' best moment. Meredith psyches Claire out, making her feel as though she's drowning in a confined space. More importantly, the "training" points out Little Miss Indestructible's first real weakness.

Question: After recently finishing both Dexter Season 2 on DVD and the first book in Jeff Lindsay's morbidly entertaining series on which the show is based, a question occurred to me. I am wondering whether the teams who run a show like Dexter, HBO's new True Blood, and others find it easier or harder to do their job in creating a show when it is based upon a book series. On one hand, they already have plenty of plot points to use and the characters are practically drawn out for them already. Most of Dexter's first season, for example, is almost directly taken from the first book. They even use some of the dialogue from the novel almost word for word. While this seems to make things a bit easier for show runners to hit the ground running, they also have to make sure they please an author's fan base with their interpretation. Plus when a show gets past the first season, they face the daunting task of deciding whether to continue following the novels or to create their own mythology like Dexter did (to perfection) in the second season. I guess my question to you as someone who occasionally speaks to the teams who run these shows is do they find this a hindrance on their creativity or a great aid in creating the show? Also, do you think they feel pressure to include major plot points that come up in the novels even if they have decided on a separate storyline from what the author went with in their book series (i.e someone dying or a couple getting together)?
