Dexter(TM) 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 departments.

From the cover art to the show itself, what a very disappointing season. It seems like they just did not really care and just threw this thing together. Each show I found myself questioning an aspect of the plot and found what I perceived to be lazy writing. They ended it horribly. How they chose to close Deb and Dexter's characters was just atrocious. *Spoiler Alert ahead*. It looks like they found themselves unable to give Dexter a happy ending and, well, they almost ruined the whole show with how they did it. Dexter was never ever in true danger the whole season yet the cover art makes it look like he is. And the whole star rating system is flawed. 3.5 stars for this season is way too high. 3.5 makes it seem like this is worth watching. Its not. It may be 3.5 stars compared to all shows that have ever been created, but this is close to 1 star if we are basing the rating system on just this series.

DEXTER hung on for 8 seasons and the end has come. There has always been something addictive yet totally unbelievable about this series, yet we all waited for the next season. Will Dexter finally slip up and be caught or will his killing spree continue? Season 8 begins with a fractured Debra Morgan (Jennifer Carpenter) dealing with her killing of Lt. LaGuerta in cold blood to save Dexter. She has committed murder and knows that her brother is a serial killer--although he never kills the innocent, It's this emotional trauma where Carpenter excels. She portrays Debra's emotional pain with intense zeal. The season is off to an interesting start. Enter the lovely Charlotte Rampling as Dr. Evelyn Vogel. Rampling has always been a favorite of mine and she doesn't disappoint us in her portrayal of the mysterious Vogel. Rampling speaks volumes with her eyes and expressions. Vogel studies the minds of serial killers and she instructed Dexter's father on creating "the...
Dexter is a character that is easy to fall in love with. Both well-written and well acted, this may be the first serial killer you have ever rooted for. This series is about a vigilante serial killer who chooses to use his "darkness" for good...killing only people who do bad things (usually people who have somehow gotten away with murder). The story line over the entire series is about Dexter's quest to fit in and feel "normal" despite his unusual secret. He is a blood splatter analyst for the Miami police department, where his sister is also a homicide detective. Both of which make for an interesting show.
All of the writing and acting is exceptional in this series for both lead and supporting characters. It has action, suspense and comedy, and one of the characters uses alot of profanity (which strangely enough is an endearing part of her character and part of the comedic aspect). It is not derogatory or offensive to any certain group, but if you are...
