This is the best series since Rome, and last more than two seasons. You love all the characters and the end of each show leaves you wanting more! Dexter is a serial killer, but he only kills murderers. Which in some peoples books makes him a good guy. Dexter was raised by a cop (Harry) who realized this in him as a young boy and channeled this misfortune to kill murderers who may have gotten off with loops in the legal system. Dexter works in a Lab as a blood splatter analyst. Dexter's foster sister (Debra) the cop's (Harry) daughter is a detective there in Miami. With all the other characters in this tv drama and the special guest they add each season, it is by far the best show I think I have ever seen.
I just love Dexter on Showtime. But I have missed a few episodes, and want to revisit others. This 3 pack gives me the best of both worlds - it allows me to view the episodes I missed (on my time) and replay the ones I need to study further. Dexter is a fantastic series, and if you don't have Showtime this is a great deal!
Basically, Dexter is a serial killer, but not an ordinary one. Raised by his police foster father Harry Morgan, Dexter is taught that "some people need killing", so the code of Harry helps Dexter harness his inner demons to kill other killers. The dynamics between Dexter, his foster sister, paramore Rita and other co-workers make this series a real gem.
An amazing and whitty look at the thoughts behind a serial killer. Dexter plays the part of a "normal" guy. Adopted out of foster care by his Cop dad. His sister and he ended up in the Miami Police Unit where they fight crime...and Dexter occasionally takes the law into his own hands. You find yourself routing for this man and feeling bad for all he has been through. Great supporting cast and so many twists and turns you don't dare stop the DVD cuz you JUST want to know what happens NEXT! I am also a big fan of Son's of Anarchy and Breaking Bad. This one is different but RIGHT UP THERE!! ENJOY!!
This series is a highly compelling story of an adopted guy who seems totally normal but is in reality a serial killer but not in a bad way! His stepfather recognized at an early age that his son had certain anti-social characteristics that needed to be honed before he became an adult. During Dexter's story we learn in flashback how his stepfather guided him with love how to fit into normal society while at the same time having no normal feelings that we all take for granted. Closeness, compassion, friendship and even sexual relations have no place in his life. But he learns how to excel in his job as a forensics specialist with the Miami Police, keep a relationship with a beautiful single mother who has problems of her own and also try to keep our world free of the monsters who live among us and prey on innocent people. Just how he does this is a gruesome revelation of murder, torture and self-discovery that we can all relate to even though we wonder why!
I am coming into "middle age" and I have never been captivated by a TV show like I have been with Dexter. I now own 6 Blu-Rays and 4 of them are Dexter! In an age where we have been overrun with reality crap and shows that seem a LOT like every other show that has been on, this one is unique. Michael C. Hall plays 60% of this character with nonverbal cues and pulls it off amazingly. I don't want to mention any specific performances outside of his for fear of saying that one is better than another. They are all amazing and no, I am not a fanboy.
If you want an opportunity to see something that might change your expectations of what television could or should be, then take the time to watch this show. Mind you, the language, sexual situations, and "gore" are not fit for even a teenager, but adult entertainment has never been better.
