Dexter Discussion

Orphaned at the age of three due to the brutal murder of his mother in a shipping container, and harboring a traumatic secret, Dexter was adopted by Miami policeman Harry Morgan who recognized his homicidal tendencies and taught him to channel his gruesome passion for killing in a "constructive" way—by killing only heinous criminals (such as child molesters, mob assassins, rapists, serial killers of the innocent etc.) who have slipped through the justice system. To satisfy his interest in blood and to facilitate his own crimes, Dexter works as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Metro Police Department..


A little late to the party, but I've been watching through the entire series of Dexter (currently on season three!) and I'm really enjoying the series so far. The twists just keep coming and it's driving me crazy to watch Dexter just barely scrape through and survive, but I can't stay away from the show! Besides that I really enjoy the concept of watching a work centered around a serial killer learning to be 'normal' and one that's trying to protect the concept of good that his father created. I'm excited to see where the work will go!

So, what about you guys, anyone else currently watching or have watched this show? I'd love to have people to discuss this show with! Or just to see discussion on it really.

Absolutely okay to start anew thread on this.. I watched Dexter, and enjoyed it a whole lot. Don't have time to say much at the moment, but might come by to add more when I have a chance. It certainly wasn't perfect and I liked some seasons more than others, but I really liked the continuing theme dealing with what it is to be human, especially with regard to how we are and how we pretend to be and...stuff.

Awesome! I'll edit out that part then.

I know what you mean by liking more seasons than others, I'm getting close to finishing season 3 and it really isn't as good as season 1, but the thrills are just as captivating! Honestly, such an addicting series.

The highlight of the series for me so far though was at the end of season 2? I really did not expect things to go as they did.
Real exciting!

I'm a big Dexter fan! I'm even one of the few people that really enjoyed the last few seasons and thought the ending was really good.

I don't know if I can finish this show. I just finished up S4 and it was SOOOOO amazing with everything, the plot, the new characters, the questions it brought up, but then the ending happened and I just dunno if I even want to complete the rest of the seasons.
