Dexter Shines in second season

Review For: Dexter - The Complete Second Season (DVD, 2008, 4-Disc Set)

Along with the Sopranos and Six Feet Under, Dexter is one of the best series to make it's way to television. Michael Hall, after being so brilliant in Six Feet, earns Hall of Fame praise as Dexter Morgan, the serial killer out to do the world good.
The second season expands on the realtionship between Dexter and Rita as their bond becomes stronger, and then seems to break as Dexter, at Rita's urging joins an addication program and meets Lila, who seems to be Dexter's true soul mate.
We are also allowed to see the awseome cat and mouse between Dexter and Sgt Doakes, as well as an expansion of the charactization of the ancillary cast, including stepsister, Deborah Morgan, Angel Batista, the unlucky in love detective, and the awesomely annoying and ever-present lab geek, Vince Masuka, played picture-perfectly by C.S. Lee.
The bonding and then battle of Lila and Dexter is the central storyline, as Dexter finds someone who understands his true nature and welcomes it.
As always, James Remar as Dexter's dad Harry Morgan is perfect. The conversation flashbacks and the "inside the head" meetings are pivotal to us
underastanding Dexter and how he became what he is and who he is.
Six Feet Under had a similar scenario when the Mr Fisher, Richard Jenkins would visit not Hall's David character but his older brother Peter Krause's character Nate.
The difference is that Harry is a central figure in the story, where Jenkin's Nathaniel Fisher would pop in and out occasionally.
The cat and mouse of Sgt Doakes comes to a shocking end as in the season, Doakes becomes the only person to figure out that Dexter is the "Bay Harbor Butcher." He even has Dexter considering turning himself in. That is, until Lila gets involved and much to Dexter's chagrin and reluctance, Doakes meets an explosive end.
Lila's evil side shines as she is almost successful in murdering Dexter and Rita's children, Cody and Astor, in a fire, however true to the series's form, Lila hers in the end when Dexter hunts her down in Paris. Sweet revenge.
Not to forget the brilliant performance of Lauren Velez as the tortured friend of Doakes, Lt. Laguerta.
The twelve episode series is flawless.
The DVD comes in four discs and includes features.

Dexter--Season Two

Review For: Dexter - The Complete Second Season (DVD, 2008, 4-Disc Set)

If the psychology of serial killers fascinates you, but you have never seen "Dexter", you MUST get it. After watching the first season, I was fascinated, even though there were a few things that didn't quite make sense, like the reason he supposedly became a serial killer. And the fact that when there was a flashback to his childhood, some irrational person in casting decided to have young Dexter played by an actor who was a different RACE than Dexter as an adult. The child was played by a black eyed latino boy, and Dexter as an adult is blonde with light green eyes. I found this to be a little distracting. Nevertheless, I found the first season to be riveting enough that I had to order season two.

"Dexter" is the life story of a serial killer, narated by the serial killer himself. After seeing that his adopted son, Dexter, liked to kill small animals, the father asked him, "Son, have you ever had the urge to kill a human?" The boy answers, "No! Well, not anyone in particular, just anyone!" The father then decides that his son will never be cured of his urge to kill, so he tries to direct these urges in a positive direction by teaching his son to kill only evil people who deserve it, and how to avoid getting caught. Dexter does just that. He kills only other killers, who have committed heinous murders against innocent people. But Dexter doesn't kill because he cares about justice. He kills because he LIKES to kill.

Taught by his father that he is a sociopath who has no normal feelings, Dexter often says that to himself--that he has no feelings. But as the series goes on, it becomes obvious that he DOES love his father, his sister, and his girlfriend.

He has been chased by another serial killer, the ICE TRUCK KILLER, and in the second season, a fellow police worker.

The second season is SO much better than the first. And Micheal Hall should win some kind of award for it. The guy is an incredible actor! In the second season, Dexter comes under suspicion as it is discovered that the killer is part of the police department (Dexter is the blood spatter analyst). Season two was absolutely terrifying and riveting. At the same time you are appalled by Dexter, you find yourself desperately hoping he doesn't get caught. Really, there are no words to describe it, except to say that it was SO GOOD that I could not tear myself away from it. I did not get up until I had watched the whole second season. I am now looking for the third season, and will buy it as soon as I win an auction.

Dexter is great and the quality is excellent

Review For: Dexter - The Complete Second Season (DVD, 2008, 4-Disc Set)

I bought this set because ABC was only allowed to run Dexter during the writers strike, Now they won't sell the second and third season. This show is so darkly satisfying to the silent vigilante in every one yet it shows how even criminals have a small good part in them that you wish would rise to the top, But sadly like in Dexter they are 92% recidivists and the intolerant bad side of us would love to just solve the problem for all society, but the little Angel in the right ear keeps whispering, "Don't be a Murderer! vengeance is mine saith the lord. Yea, Yea! Ok! I'll just watch the show. The social inter action and issues between Dexter and his sister and girl friends is also great! It is full of social dilemma and enlightenment.

The DVD's are perfect quality they look like HD on my upconverting DVD player and HD TV.
I highly recommend this set!

Season 2 gets things kick started

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.
Review For: Dexter - The Complete Second Season (DVD, 2008, 4-Disc Set)

Miami blood-spatter analyst and moonlighting serial killer Dexter Morgan spent the first season of Showtime's groundbreaking drama helping his police department track the Ice Truck Killer, a man who turned out to be the brother Dexter never knew. In Season Two, he helps hunt someone even closer...himself. When his Glad-bag graveyard is discovered at the bottom of the ocean, all of Miami buzzes about the Bay Harbor Butcher, the nocturnal crime fighter who litters the sea with body parts of bad guys.

The search for the Bay Harbor Butcher (and the ensuing cat and mouse game between Dexter and his colleagues) provides the overarching glue for Season Two. The middle episodes of the season feature the slippery Dexter trying to wiggle his way out of the grasp of the investigation, lead by new character FBI Special Agent Lundy (Keith Carradine), a professional everyman as unassuming as he is brilliant. Lundy's dedication and focus rival Dexter's and present a challenge for our hero even greater than his "game" with the Ice Truck Killer. Lundy's ritual and disciplined life of cucumber sandwich lunches and Chopin interludes clears his mind, giving him almost clairvoyance into the heart of his target.

The second principle plot centers on Dexter's new love interest, Lila. Early in the season, Dexter is able to explain away his erratic behavior to Doakes and Rita by pretending to be a recovering drug addict. His relationship with his sultry and insightful sponsor sparks tension between Dexter and his girlfriend and forces Dexter into chambers of his mind that have been closed for decades. In the arms of a troubled figure with a past nearly as dark as his own, Dexter feels understood for the first time.

Dexter's "improvements" in rehab, coupled with the relentless investigation of him by Doakes causes a reduction in body count for Season Two. Just as Season One established the winning formula of building a 12 episode serial plot accentuated with weekly self contained subplots with payoffs, Season Two also has small stories to keep the viewers entertained as the search for the Butcher continues. The difference between Seasons One and Two is that these small plots don't always involve Dexter killing someone. Season One almost had a reality-tv consistency with Dexter "voting someone off the island" each week. But sometimes Season Two episode plots are about his relationships with Rita, Lila or Doakes.

This is part of the more human Dexter presented in Season Two. His conscience gets to him a few times; he underestimates one of his victim's strength and then walks into a trap; he routinely gets outsmarted by Lundy; and he's unable to control his feelings toward Rita and her kids. He's come a long way from the unemotional science project of the first season. The extra dimensions to his character and a season-long plot that amazingly trumps the edge-of-your-seat plight of Season One's Ice Truck Killer are only two reasons why the series has improved since its sublime debut season and now fills the void left by The Sopranos as television's finest hour.
