Regular birth Douglas.
It was a special time not only because of the birth but also being and feeling so close to my daughter and son in law. My wife was in the room during the birth (I was eating donuts in the waiting room reading GQ). Kind of cool being the first one to call my SIL a "Dad", kissing our daughter and holding the new little munchkin.
Everyone has decided that my role in life is to take her shopping and to be sure she appreciates the finer things in life. Sign me up for that duty and where is the champagne?
While HIMYM's later seasons lost a bit of quality, I was positively surprised by the finale. Not at all what I expected but it definitely felt complete. The gazillion jumps into the future and back surprisingly worked.
Psych's last season was pretty odd. The final, however, was pretty great and even though it screamed SPINOFF at your face, it still felt as if the storyline had found a reasonable end.
Boston Legal, well, despite the fact that they had to fight to get that last season out there, it was much fun. Over the top final? Maybe. But fun indeed.
Sure, all of those series are of a different format than Dexter. Breaking Bad had a final season that Dexter should've had too. I mean, who didn't want a great showdown between Dexter and the police? No way. Let's introduce a new creator of his code, let's introduce various sideplots that added zilch to the plot (Masuka's daughter; Quinn's relationships; ...), let's pair terrible acting (Harrison.. he's a kid, but still) with terrible directing (the threadmill scene--were they out of their minds?), let's make Dexter's decisions incoherent. And above all, let's shout SPINOFF at the viewers' faces. There's a reason--or rather a multitude of reasons--why a season's final gets 4.9 on IMDB (by 9k votes).
What do you think, @DextersMorgan?

When it comes to series finales, I still believe The Shield pulled it off the best. Breaking Bad and the Wire were serviceable. But yeah, HIMYM. Might be right down there with LOST with how horrible it ended
I never wanted Dexter to work in a police dept.
I wanted him to perhaps head security of some mega gambling joint.
I did not want MCH(michael C. Hall). My original thought was to choose Jim Carrey as he fits my persona more closely.
Deb Morgan was based on my sister. I showed my sister picture to Jeff Lindsay and thus the reason he picked Jennifer Carpenter.
