Dexter is a crime drama about Dexter Morgan, a man who leads a double life as an incredibly likeable forensics expert for the Miami Police Department and as an emotionless vigilante serial killer. Taught by his foster father to harness his lust for blood and killing, Dexter lives by his own strict moral code - he only kills murderers who can't otherwise be brought to justice. Dexter is a killer who grapples with fitting into society while, at the same time, he struggles with his inability to feel emotion. The irony of Dexter's life is that he works closely as a blood splatter analyst with the very people who hunt his kind - the homicide departments.

I imagine most buyers of the set, have seen the series & want it watch again, or have as a collection, esp in the clever container, akin to what Dexter kept blood samples on slides in & tucked into his AC unit. If you haven't seen the series, it's welldone. I expected the acting to be good as Michael C.Hall was so magnetic in SIX FEET UNDER. Fabulous series..I loved it...(even more than Dexter.)
**SPOILER ALERT** ( just in case) regardless of this odd manipulation, whereby, we like Dexter, & are made to think since his killings have been directed at bad guys, & he does have that cute kiddo.....Nah, it would not be sociability acceptable for him to be a hero, allowed to be jury, judge & executioner & get away with it. There were some sticky messes in the storyline - not involving his gruesome rituals, but in the choices made in the script. That were not thought out , as they evolved, as to how they would dissolve? For example :Harrison, the son. Ideally, Deb should have taken him. But she's a murdering Auntie. Too bad about that slip.
Better her, than sending off your innocent, sweet boy, to South America with a real murderess, who has attempted to poison Deb & kill Dexter when her mood was ruffled, but now has become a soulmate (even w no chemistry between the actors) whom Dexter can't be without, but knows he will, he must....Read more ›
From the first episode of "Dexter", I was hooked. Season after season went by and the show was almost always excellent - there was one wobbly year, but at least it tried to be different. However, the villain was too weak. As we all know, a hero is only as good as the villain is evil. Then came the last season...THUD! Michael C. Hall slept walked through most of it, probably grateful that it was at last coming to an end, and Deb became just a prop instead of the complex person she had become. Dexter, who killed people who had managed to "get away with it", had been our hero, and strangely enough, it had worked as a concept. But that was because he usually had diabolical villains to play off. Here, he is both hero and villain with a net result of indifference for the audience. You can't cheer for him; you don't want to boo him off the screen..well, until this season. Surely there was a better ending possible. In fact, almost anything else would have been a better ending.
In the last season we got a Dexter who was, as children would say, a "suck". The self-pity was cloying, the main character's thinking level descended to shallows unimagineable before. The show sank.
I bought it so that I would have the entire season. But I realize now that my decision was wrong-headed as I will never be able to watch this season without it deminishing the impact of every other season that had gone before it.

This series concluded as it should have. Looking beyond the obvious in the episodes, there is a deeper underlying theme of character analysis which adds great intrigue.Published 7 months ago by Marmar
