Dexter

Recommended Posts

It's a fantastic show and the first season comes out on DVD at the end of the month. The premise is that Dexter (the main character) is a serial killer, but he was raised by a cop who realized it, and taught him how to cope with it. He still gets the urge to kill, but he tries to only kill assholes and other criminals, all the while struggaling to not get caught (he works in Forensics for the police department) and look as human as possible (by trying to have a relationship, etc.)

i always thought that premise would make an incredible book.

I need to watch it. They started airing this here about a month ago but I missed the first five episodes or something.

Actually, the show is based on a book series. Season one was bsed on the first book, season two on the second (though I've heard they are going to deviate quite a bit) etc.

First I thought Dexter's Laboratory.

 

I'm going to get lolled out of here aren't I?

I really wanted to like this show, but it sucking so much made that hard to do.

 

Inner-monologues just don't do it for me anymore.

 

Plus, all the background characters are so sterotypical and just plain annoying.

 

I have to admit there were a few episodes towards the end of season one that made me kinda regret never watching the show again...but then I watched the first couple eps of season two, and then I felt better about ditching it.

I'm going to kick-start this sucker, if only for a little while.

 

Currently catching up on season 4 and realizing how much I missed this show. The third season almost turned me off it for the first 3-4 episodes but then it all fell into place. But what's bugging me is at the end of the 7th episode in the 4th season, I could swear it's Explosions in the Sky playing, but I can't find anything to back it up. Does anyone know?

I have no idea. However, season 3 was pretty hard to get through, but 1, 2 and 4 were genius.

So yeah, I finally got around to watch this and it's great. Season 3 was kinda painful indeed but season 4 was great. I never liked John Lithgow but he was really good and of course MCH is an amazing actor. Looking forward to the new season ;)

Dexter came back last night and I'm genuinely concerned for what's going to happen to Dex after the investigation!

I thought that the premier was pretty bad. Hopefully this season picks up.

When he went to the funeral home, I was really hoping Peter Krause (His brother Nate from Six Feet Under) was going to be there.

anyway, the episode was alright, I wasn't expecting any huge bombshells because this episode had to focus on Rita's death. One thing I wonder though, what did he do with the guy he killed in the bathroom?

The second episode was good in my opinion. I like the fact that there's a new killer we don't know about (like in the first seasons).

Episode 2 of the new season was good, but I have one problem. Dexter CAN'T let this play out like he has in past seasons. Let's face it, last time he tried to understand a killer, Rita ended up dead. I can't imagine him taking his time because he'd be afraid of someone else he cares about getting hurt.

After finally getting around to watching Episode 3, you can probably just ignore that last post
