Season 3 Trumps Again!
This is a wonderful Season of Dexter. If you have watched Seasons 1 & 2, this is the perfect follow up to what you know of Dexter so far. He finally gets a friend, someone that truly understands him for who he really is, delivers two major surprises regarding Rita, and Deb is still mixing up her personal life with her professional career. All in all, I think compared to the two seasons before this, the granular progression of intensity you've witnessed thus far, continues in season 3 and trumps the previous seasons. Good buy, totally worth the watch. This show is killer, literally and figuratively ;)

Season 3 - needed a better Cuban culture consultant.
I love Dexter, and definitely enjoyed watching this season, but I was not glued to my seat this time. This is the least enjoyable of the 5 seasons, but I still enjoyed certain episodes. My biggest issues stem from the fact that I was born and raised in Miami and my husband is Cuban, so I know a lot about Cuban culture. Being from Miami, I was disappointed by Jimmy Smitts' performance as a Cuban. I would assume they had a consultant for the show regarding Cuban culture, but whomever it was, they missed the mark. His accent went in and out, and his Brooklyn accent comes out frequently. Also, in the Cuban culture, many people add "-ito" to the end of someone's name when referring to them affectionately. I only heard that once, by Ramon in one of the later episodes, referring to their dead younger brother "Oscar-ito." Smitts' just fell flat for me, and his character did not ring true. Unfortunately, this really put a damper on how I felt about the entire season. If you are not from Miami or another area that embodies a lot of Cuban culture, you may not notice and feel just fine, but his performance was just a huge disappointment for me. Also, the story line throughout the season fell flat, and the way the season ended, I felt no need to go on to season 4. Luckily, I had heard so much about season 4, I gave it a chance any way, and that was the right decision. Season 4 brings the series back to life, and so far, season 5 is continuing to carry on the legacy that is Dexter. Season 3 isn't bad, it's just not that great in comparison to all the other seasons.Read full review

This season does not disappoint ....Dexter rules!
I was just exposed to this show 2 weeks ago and began with season 1 and have barreled through seasons 2 and 3 quickly. Dexter is addictive and leaves you wanting more.I love the narration of Dexter as the show unfolds,putting you inside of his mind and rooting for him throughout every episode. The characters are all enjoyable to watch and I cannot wait to watch season 4. Alot of people said that season 3 was not as good as the others and I cannot disagree more. Dexter taking Miguel under his wing and letting him in as well as trusting him was fascinating and had me on the edge of my seat. Awesome show....awesome season...nuff said!!

Amazing and brilliant
This show is brilliant and scary at the same time. I love it and can't wait to watch more. It is so interesting that I can't stop watching it once I start. It grabs your attention from the very first moment and that's it you can't turn your eyes away. I plan to own all of the seasons of Dexter for that very reason. It is addicting and exciting.

Dexter, The most entertaining series to date...........
I am a huge Dexter fan and just had to buy the complete series. The family element
and the decision to marry was a great twist to this series. The fact that a serial killer can wrestle with the same feelings fathers have made him more shall we say normal. This was a great yet scary element. It kind of makes you look at yourself and wonder, How close am i to tapping into my Dark Passenger..........
No, I myself am not a serial killer. I can just relate. Keep slashing Dexter....
And The Dark Passenger.
