Dexter
« on: Mar 29, 2007 at 12:00 AM »
Anyone else watch Showtime's show Dexter? I just started and it seems promising. Only 12 episodes for the first season. I totally did not recognize Michael Hall!


If you're not familiar with the show here's a brief description:

Based on Jeff Lindsay's novels Darkly Dreaming Dexter and Dearly Devoted Dexter this crime thriller follows Dexter Morgan. Dexter is a forensic blood spatter expert for the Miami Dade Police Department. He is the main support for his sister. He has a steady girlfriend, with two kids who adore him. He also has an active "night life". Based on a code instilled in him by his foster father, Harry, he hunts down people who have escaped justice and makes sure they don't get away with a crime again.

I've seen the first season already. It's one of the most original shows to debut last year. It was rewarding to see it through its entirety. I only have a minor pet peeve: the actress playing his sister.

Because they're Fox. The network that also canceled Wonderfalls and Arrested Development::)

This is next on my DVD catch up list, so I can join your discussions soon. I was supposed to start it today, but I got sucked into Showtime's Dexter instead. I love the premise - a serial killer who kills... serial killers!  ;D

Also Firefly, right?  >:(

Dexter is surely addictive. Michael C. Hall was robbed at the Emmys this year. Hated his character in Six Feet Under but he is really mesmerizing in this one. If I'm not mistaken the first two episodes of season two are already available.  ;D

This gem of a show has one of the most simple and direct tag lines ever. Takes life. Seriously.  ;D

Caught a few episodes of the first season and it's definitely intriguing. Michael Hall's virtually unreciognaizable from 6 Feet.

Brilliant first season. I was about to order the book from Amazon, but the reviews mostly said the series vastly improved the book, so I passed instead.

Just finished Season 2 premiere, and it looks like it's way better than the Season 1 plot. My only problem, I think this will be their biggest case. I even thought it'll be reserved for the season finale. So what can the writers offer next after this?

I'm a big fan of the show, but I have to admit Season 3 was a bore until the Dexter-Miguel conflict. Too bad it lasted for a few episodes only.

Yup, and there was no serial killer to deal with the entire season...  :(

Yup, but the skinner only appeared half way of the season. He was no contention compared to the season 1 serial killer and the storyline on season 2. I didn't find that much conflict and suspense for season 3. Unlike in season 2 where i was after the next episode to make sure he wasnt caught.

Oh well, i guess i was expecting too much. But it was overall ok. Not much steamy scenes though.  :P

I was hoping they'd focus more on Miguel, but even the DA was no challenge for Dexter. A major serial killer storyline has already been used in Season 1, and partially in Season 2. At least they've tried to change that in Season 3. Can't wait for Season 4 when Deb starts to connect the dots. To kill or not to kill the sister...  ::)
