Dark and sinister is the new sexy, thanks to Dexter, which in its second season has proven to be the most successful series Showtime has offered up yet. Remember how much you squirmed in your seat during the season one finale? Believe it or not, the premiere of season two felt like it could have been a season finale--because jaws were on the floor when the credits rolled. For being a supposed sociopath, Dex is pretty broken up about the gruesome events that concluded last season. The one and only person who could possibly understand him is six feet under, and it seems our unlikely hero is losing his homicidal grip. He’s even having a little trouble slicing up a few of his latest victims (from a murderous gang member to a chainsaw-wielding fiend from his past). Enter Lila (Jaime Murray, Hustle), a lady with a sweet British accent and a few dark secrets of her own. She seems to accept Dex for who he really is, and he finds himself feeling relaxed for the first time in his life. In contrast, his relationship with his girlfriend Rita (Julie Benz) has been stretched almost to a breaking point. The problem is, he should be anything but relaxed. Someone picked a poor place to go scuba diving off the Florida coast, and came across an underwater graveyard: Dex’s primo spot for dropping dismembered bodies wrapped in heavy-duty trash bags. Word about the "Bay Harbor Butcher" gets out quick, and the F.B.I. sends the best of the best, Special Agent Frank Lundy (Keith Carradine, Deadwood) to work alongside the police to sniff out Miami’s latest serial killer. This guy is no schlub, and Dex may have met his match. And, yes, Dexter gets to work with Lundy on a daily basis, which provides some wonderfully awkward moments. It certainly doesn’t help that the intuitively paranoid Sergeant Doakes (Erik King, Oz) is hot on Dex’s trail.

Season two of Dexter is all about decisions. Lila or Rita? Old code or new code? Run or fight? Right or wrong? Well, one thing’s for sure: When it comes to writing, casting, acting, and production, the makers of this show made all the right decisions. Michael C. Hall is simply superb as the title character. You’ll never find yourself more willing to genuinely root for a serial killer. It’s bloody liberating. --Jordan Thompson

Product Description
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 department. Dexter's "Regular Joe" front is in full force while working alongside the ill-tempered Sgt. James Doakes who seems to be the only one to sense Dexter's more sinister side and Lt. Maria LaGuerta the head of the division who pursues Dexter sexually with as much force as she would any criminal. While his sister Debra Morgan a tough and determined cop leans on Dexter for personal advice and career advancement the closest one Dexter "connects" with is Det. Angel Batista whose similar attention to detail and taste for forensics almost mirrors his own. While sentiment and feelings elude Dexter he struggles to find a kindred spirit of sorts in his emotionally damaged girlfriend Rita who keeps him grounded in the realities of "normal" life and provides him respite from the dark corners of his mind. The series is based on the acclaimed novel "Darkly Dreaming Dexter" by Jeff Lindsay.

*NOTE - THIS REVIEW MAY CONTAIN SPOILERS *

Just when all seemed calm for Dexter after the eventual disposal of the Ice Truck Killer in the Season 1 finale, his past crimes come back to haunt him as some scuba divers accidentally stumble upon the underwater graveyard of his victims.

Season 2 finds Dexter under scrutiny when the FBI is called in to help Miami Metro deal with the capture of "The Bay Harbor Butcher". What better way to explain his odd behavior to co-workers and to Rita than pretending to be a recovering drug addict.

Of course, this predictably puts a strain on his relationship with Rita, especially after she discovers his "sponsor" is the sympathetic, oddly attractive and enigmatic British lass, Lila.

Dexter eventually enters into a sexual relationship with Lila, which he soon regrets when she begins displaying psychopathic behavior and a flair for pyrotechnics.

We also see Dexter and Doakes playing cat-and-mouse games with each other, with each having the upper hand at various points during the course of the season.

Meanwhile, Deb works out her Daddy issues with FBI Special Agent Lundy, all the while unaware that step-brother Dex is the Bay Harbor Butcher everyone is scrambling to locate and apprehend.

While Angel and Masuka provide some of the comic relief, Lt. Laguerta continues to be more than just a thorn in Deb's side. We are shocked to learn what lengths she will go to in order to get her job back and are touched by her loyalty to Doakes when he comes under suspicion.

Overall, I didn't find Season 2 as riveting as Season 1, but I still enjoyed every minute of it. The acting continues to be superb, though I wish Rita wasn't always coming off as such a wet noodle. Michael C.
