Wonderfully original idea for tv-- serial killer works as a blood splatter expert for the cops by day & kills evil doers in his spare time.

I like this show too. I've been meaning to post a QT about it. I believe we just started season 5. Oh goodness...the ending of Season 4 was sad!

I don't think so. I think we're just watching the most recent season that played.

It is though--just not on NetFlix. My daughter just finished watching it. She got it through another kind of subscription, can't remember to what just now. She said she didn't like that season as much as the others.

Ah, ok. Yeah, I haven't enjoyed things after the last major twist. Have you gotten to that part? It involved Dexter's family. I don't want to spoil it if you haven't.

Yeah. I just finished streaming the whole 5th season off my daughter's TV. I didn't think it was all that bad. I thought it ended rather abruptly though.

I didn't like it all that much because I missed Rita. I agree with you about the ending to the season!

I wonder if they wrapped it up that quickly because of their star being diagnosed with cancer? Oh, did you know that the chick who plays Dexter's sister is his real life wife?

Hm, good theory. I didn't know that about him. That's sad. And wow! What a surprise! No, I didn't know that either. So funny that they play brother and sister in the show!

I wonder if they were married before or met on the show. Idle curiosity.

Thanks for conducting the additional research, Aerin. Too bad it didn't last that long. :(

I was introduced to the series by my boyfriend when we first started dating, and have been hooked ever since! Based on the novel "Darkly Dreaming Dexter" by Jeff Lindsay, Dexter is a colorful mix of drama, suspense, horror, and comedy. The television series doesn't follow the novel word for word, but it does do a great job of developing the characters, and though some scenarios are totally different than the book's, you would expect the characters to behave in those certain ways anyway, …

How can you not get hooked? Blood spatter analyst by day, serial killer by night.
review by . December 15, 2008
When my brother first told me the premise of Dexter, I thought there was no way I'd be a fan. I'd rather do my laundry than a watch serial killer's dirty work. But one night I was bored, and it was on and of course I watched. I haven't stopped since. Dexter is a dark character, whose "code" (he only kills killers) keeps him from running amuck in a world of law and order (or in his case the police station where he works).  Though his madness should make you dislike him, his strangely lovable. …

Started watching this season, and I have to agree that this show isn't just a hype.
Quick Tip by . September 01, 2009
I started in at about episode 7 of season 1. Now I can't stop watching. Thanks, Netflix instant queue.

About this tv show


Dexter Morgan, played by Michael Hall, is the main character of this Showtime TV series. The show focuses on the life of Dexter who is a serial killer.

The series blends drama and horror as it follows the day-to-day events in the life of Dexter Morgan, a forensic blood spatter analyst for the Miami Metro Police Department who also happens to be a serial killer. He was taught by his adoptive father, Harry, only to kill those "who deserve it"; mainly, other killers who have escaped the legal system or were never suspected in the first place. The series shows him balancing an everyday life with his secret identity, all while keeping up a facade of normalcy.
