Comparisons and Similarities

This year is one of the first years I’ve started watching TV shows on a regular basis. The reason for this two-fold: 1) I get to watch the shows I want on my own time and 2) …well two doesn’t matter because reason one is such a big factor.

This year I feel in love with the show Dexter. Great show, I hope everyone has a chance to watch it. I hope for a season 2…but i digress, that’s not why I’m here today.

Just recently, my beautiful wife and I sat down and watched the movie American Psycho. I haven’t seen this since it came out in 2000-ish. I forgot a majority of the movie until my wife and I chatted about it because of an event she attended, then subsequently wrote about: 3rd Tuesday Psycho.

The reason I bring all this up is the ridiculous similarities I noticed between the movie and the TV show. I won’t ruin it, but I will give you a hint…watch the opening scene in American Psycho and the opening of Dexter and let me know what you think.

I also noticed some similarities between the theme song for that old show from the 80’s Fraggle Rock and the show by the boys at called Awsometown. If you like off the wall humour like I do, they you’ll probably really enjoy this show. Now, the theme songs are as eerily similar to each other as the openings of American Psycho and Dexter are…well, it’s really only the hand clapping and the melody…but for some reason, when I heard the Awsometown theme song, I immediately thought of Fraggle Rock.

I have a copy of the theme songs for Awsometown and Fraggle Rock – although the Fraggle Rock theme isn’t the same as the one from the actual show for some reason – for you to listen to. As for American Psycho and Dexter, I’ll leave that up to you to rent them and compare.
