I've been dying to see this one!

I was a HUGE fan of Six Feet Under and I actually jumped with joy with the release of the first season of Dexter as Michael Hall, the star of Dexter and part of the core cast of Six Feet Under, was one of my favorite cast members in Six Feet Under. For those of you like myself who missed the first season, the second season will send you rushing out to get the first season as well. Dexter is a "blood spatter" expert for the Miami police department and ironically his "job" is to find killers when behind closed doors he is a serial killer himself.

The only real issue with the second season is unlike season one it seems to be more reliant on "fluff" instead of going into as much background on Dexter and his story. I'm not sure if this had something to do with the writers strike, but it just seemed a bit rushed. Overall though its an excellent show and if the first season had not been so amazing I would have nothing bad to say about the second season. I actually watched the second season first and then went and rented the first, and honestly I loved the second season until I realized how awesome the first season was... heh.

Overall its a great series and I cannot wait to see season three, sadly I think I'll have to wait till it comes out on DVD as my schedule is full this semester.. ahh well thank goodness for DVDs eh?

Now for the official info :

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

My daughter and I are waiting for this cd to come to Netflix. We don't have cable so must rely on the dvd's to be sent. I would love to win this as we both love watching season one and haven't seen season two yet. Thanks so much.

Kimberly L said...

I'm a huge fan of crime shows. Into all the CSI's and etc. I caught this a couple of times on HBO while visiting relatives. *we don't have cable. Would love to be able to watch an entire season of shows. From what I read on the reviews the second season is the best.

I love Dexter. I read the book and it was interesting to see how they adapted it for TV, which characters lived and which were killed off. The cast is great, too. I love Deb and all the cops.

It is an awsome show.

Dexter is more human with an innate goodness than many non-psychotic characters. Too bad he has to be a serial killer!!!

Love the show and watching the way his mind works.

clynsg said...

As did so many, we became hooked on Dexter in the second season. But my daughter missed several episodes, so this would be great for her to catch up.

Katmagick said...

I missed the first season also but jumped right in to season two. I am so intrigued by this show. I would never have thought that I would be rooting for a serial killer so I feel a bit bizarre about that fact. I actually like Michael Hall better in this role, even though I was a huge Six Feet Under fan. I would love to win this and , yes, I would then be purchasing season one.
