The Return Of America's Favorite Serial Killer.
Dexter is back and more killer than ever. The Emmy-nominated Showtime Original Series (Best Drama Series, Lead Actor in a Drama Series) returns for an all-new season ? and this time Dexter's got a new take on taking life. Having faced some of his darkest demons, Dexter's ready to put the past behind him. Now, with family life, a day job catching killers and an uncontrollable urge to do away with the ones that get away, Dexter's got his work cut out for him. And when a high-profile case sides him with powerful Assistant DA Miguel Prado (special guest star Jimmy Smits), the pressure might be too great for even our beloved Dexter to hack.

"...deliciously dark and disturbing...Dexter takes us into the mind of a serial killer in a way we've never had the opportunity to see on television.  Adam Arseneau, DVD Verdict
"...creepy, tawdry...if brilliant, psychotic lunatics are your bag, by all means, climb aboard.  Brian Lowry, Variety
"...will please fans of crime dramas and serial killer tales like The Silence of the Lambs and the HBO import Epitafios.  Casey Richards, TVDVDReviews.com
"...disturbing, somewhat creepy and very entertaining.  Jeremy Lynch, Central Crime Zone
"...dark, creepy...utterly compelling...  Tim Goodman, San Francisco Chronicle
"Fantastic, fascinating, creepy, charming and gruesome.  Chicago Sun-TimesDoug Elfman

Editor's Note
Showtime produces a slick, sick series with this darkly comic crime-drama that has audiences rooting for the bad guy. The villain in question is the Dexter of the title (Michael C. Hall), a man whose homicidal tendencies were discovered early in life by his adoptive father (James Remar). His cop father tried to fuel Dexter's unavoidable desires into something good: ridding the world of criminals who have evaded justice. When he's all grown up, Dexter becomes a blood-splatter expert for the Miami P.D., giving him unrestricted access to heinous crimes and those who commit them. But while Dexter dispatches Miami's worst, he wonders if his colleagues, his sister, Debra (Jennifer Carpenter), and his "love" interest, Rita (Julie Benz), will catch on to his true nature. The crimes--both those committed by the murderers and those done by Dexter--are grisly, but it's hard to look away from this unique, engrossing show, which is based on the novels of Jeff Lindsay. This collection presents the show's third season, which features Jimmy Smits as a tough district attorney partnered with Dexter.

Expert Review Dexter: Season Three - DVD Review
By: Chris Cabin filmcritic.com DVD Reviews
Published on: 8/7/2009 7:48 PM
Heroes need their villains but not nearly as badly as anti-heroes do. The second season of Showtime's dark comedy Dexter, which follows the comings-and-goings of a forensic analyst who triples as serial killer and family man, floundered due to a noticeable lack of a real nemesis for its title character to tango with. They offered a few adversaries: Keith Carradine's suave FBI agent, Erik King's suspicious Sgt. Doakes, and Jaime Murray's seductive NA sponsor. None of these characters matched the protagonist's wits, however, and it left both Hall's hilariously congenial sociopath and the show in lukewarm territory....read the full review

Professional Reviews

Empire
4 stars out of 5 -- "Dexter's ensuing evolution from serial killer to reluctant family man is gripping." 09/01/2010

Variety 9 of 10
Based on Jeff Lindsay's novel "Darkly Dreaming Dexter," the series focuses on a Miami forensics expert who finds the town -- characterized as it is by a low murder-solving rate -- "a great place for me to hone my craft." Alas, said "craft" is ritual murder, though thanks to his foster father (James Remar, very effective in flashback sequences), Dexter (Hall) has learned to put his homicidal impulses to good use, hunting down and eliminating killers and miscreants who have skirted justice or otherwise gamed the system...Dexter is close only with his foster sister Debra (Jennifer Carpenter), a cop toiling in vice who yearns to transfer into homicide. He also has an emotionally damaged girlfriend (Julie Benz) who, mercifully, is as uninterested in sex as he is. Meanwhile, one co-worker, Sgt. Doakes (Erik King), can sense there's something seriously off about the guy -- an intuition Dexter actually admires...Diving headlong into the black humor, Hall quickly dispatches any thoughts of his "Six Feet" character, which, by itself, represents quite an accomplishment...In their desire to be provocative, however, the producers, director Michael Cuesta and writer James Manos Jr. approach the line between "edgy" and "distasteful" and, at least at times, drift across it, despite their relative restraint in terms of excessive gore. Dexter is meant to be more acceptable because he slays only those who deserve it, but the relish with which he pursues his work -- wrapped in cellophane and coolly wielding an electric saw -- feels plucked from a Stanley Kubrick outtake reel...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. - Brian Lowry

The Onion A.V. Club 8 of 10
The Showtime series Dexter has an irresistible hook: The eponymous hero, a "blood-spatter analyst" for a Miami homicide unit, is a serial killer, but he reserves this inclination for scum-of-the-earth types -- murderers, pedophiles, rapists -- who've beat the system. What makes his "code" fascinating, at least in the first several episodes, is the implication that he needs to kill, and that the code is just the most constructive way to channel his aggression. Unlike a garden-variety vigilante, he doesn't really care about justice, which makes him a different kind of monster, one whose sense of right and wrong is programmed, not instinctive. Throughout the engrossing, tightly plotted first season, the code gradually starts to rewire his twisted circuitry, and he shows signs of making a Pinocchio-like journey toward becoming a real boy...Though it has the veneer of an "edgy" TV show, Dexter at its worst isn't far removed from a standard-issue police procedural, cursed further by crappier production values than network hits like CSI. As Dexter becomes more human -- though that's still relative -- the show loses some of its initial energy, making the mistake of softening a character distinguished by his blackened soul. But even when it sinks too far into conventionality, it's still riveting television, thanks to superb thriller plotting (the cat-and-mouse game between Dexter and the Ice Truck Killer is particularly gripping), well-employed flashbacks, and a leading man whose charisma holds his psychosis in check. - Scott Tobias
