Can't wait for the second season!

by glen on 11/28/2007

Michael Hall is great as Dexter. I loved him in six feet under and he's just as good as Dexter. I love his character and the series just keeps getting better with each episode. Read More

Editors Note
Note After playing a mild-mannered funeral home director in SIX FEET UNDER, Michael C. Hall makes a smooth transition to a serial killer in this Showtime original series. But the twist in this smart show is that Dexter chooses to prey only on other serial killers. As a child, Dexter was adopted by a cop (James Remar) who quickly realizes that his new son is no ordinary boy. Since Dexter is compelled to kill, his law-abiding father pushes him to choose his quarry in a way that will best benefit society. As Dexter grows older, he works as a blood splatter expert in Miami, giving him a close view of other murderers and their handiwork. Stylish and blackly comic, this drama is adapted from Jeff Lindsay's novel DARKLY DREAMING DEXTER. This release includes the entire first season, which largely focuses on Dexter's pursuit of the coldblooded Ice Truck Killer and his own efforts to evade detection.

Reviews
ReviewSource Variety
Review Serial killers are so entwined in the public's imagination it was inevitable there would be a TV series about one, answering the puzzling question of what Hannibal Lecter might do in his quieter moments. Yet in doing so, Showtime has reminded us how antics of the deranged -- even when constructively channeled into vigilante justice -- aren't really all that pleasant to watch. Credit "Six Feet Under's" Michael C. Hall with sinking his teeth into this distinctive new role, but a creepy, tawdry tone should place "Dexter" in that dreaded "off-off-Broadway" tier in terms of appeal...Granted, some of Showtime's recent series have been a little squishy conceptually ("Huff" comes to mind), and no one can accuse "Dexter" of such wishy-washiness. So if brilliant, psychotic lunatics are your bag, by all means, climb aboard.
