Dexter

The lowdown:

Its a show about serial killers.

Not your "American Justice" style show where they follow the life of Henry Lee Lucas and why he became a serial murderer, blah blah blah.
Not your "CSI" style show where you see a team of scientists and police chase down some pervert who likes to strangle girls in the back of his molester van..

No... this is a show about a sympathetic serial killer who works as a blood spatter expert for the Miami Coroner's office. Its based on a series of books called "Darkly Dreaming Dexter"


I know what you're thinking. "Oh. Look at the obvious duality of his professional and personal life. How cheeseball is this?"

Well, hold up.


This show goes into the psychology of what its like for him to live his life day-to-day as a sociopath. His friends, his family, his girlfriend. It even goes into how his father, a Miami cop, taught him how to be a successful serial killer when he was growing up.


He kills only "the ones who deserve to die" like other murderers or general scumbags. He gets away with it because he has a little bit of OCD and I've got a big greasy hardon for this show.


The problem is that its hard to find on cable so you might have to go to that TV-Links site in the UK that we all know about to watch it.

Ya, i saw a preivew a couple weeks ago and was like that looks good, so I went on the internet and watched the1st episode. After that, i watched the whole season, and the beginning of season 2 in about a week.
Awesome series, its like CSI, but opposite, from the killers perspective.
A must watch.

The main actor was also in Six Feet Under (another awesome show but that's for another thread :P )
I'm half done watching the 2nd season... A lot of people make fun of the plot but they really should sit down and watch how good this show is.

Yes... I did.

I bought season 1 a few weeks ago, and due to my inability to control myself I watched it all in a matter of a few days. I then proceeded to watch all of season 2 online. I enjoyed season 2 MUCH more, but it is an incredible show, and definitely in my top 3.

*SMALL SPOILERS* My favorite part is when dexter head butts doakes in his office... that was probably the coolest thing I've ever seen on a TV show.

I can NOT stand dexter's sister though. She should eat some damn food, stop wearing pants that go up to her neck, and learn to move her mouth normally.

I have season 1+2 in HD on my computer. Haven't gotten around to watching it yet cause I'm finishing up on Arrested Development but I told my gf about Dexter and she's hooked now.

Lost, Heroes, and Dexter. My three favourite shows. CSI just to see the hot chicks - Horatio's ex sex is hawt.........

BTW, I think Dexter's sis is kinda appealing....... in a weird kinky way.

Great show, I enjoyed season 2 more than season 1. Its got a quirky comedy to it..not everyone likes it or gets it. Thank god for HBO and Showtime cause they put out the best shows..Sopranos, The Wire, Entourage, and Dexter.

I loved heroes when I watched it the first time through... watching it the second time is not as appealing, but that's for another thread I guess.

After reading the first post in this thread, I decided to check it out. Man, am I hooked! I powered through Season 1 and 2 in just over a week. When is Season 3 supposed to air?

typhoonslippery.. from the getgo they've already been adapting the book in various ways.

The first season followed the book more closely, but in the second season it deviated much more.

For the first season all the ancillary characters such as Angel, and the other supporting cast played almost no roles in the book.

few differences
-----
(possible spoiler for book readers) in the book the lieutenant dies after the first book and Dexter's sister finds out he's the killer.

Dexter's brother is an identical twin and in the end dexter helps him to escape.


James Doake's goes by a different name in the book.

Angel Batista is a lab tech instead of a homicide detective.

Paul and Dexter's girlfriend play almost no role in the book at all.

there's a bunch of other differences, but I'd have to say it is one of the rare occasions where the televised series outshines the source material it was based off of.

Was there a new episode this last Sunday? Two, maybe three weeks ago, I tried to watch Dexter, but it wasn't on. The following week, it looked like I missed an episode. What gives? I'm sure it is on CTV weekly on Sundays at 10 pm.

If I did miss it, can someone direct me to a site on the Internet that has the episodes I missed? TIA.

^ I agree, it started off a bit slowly but I'm looking forward to the next episode now that Dexter is somewhat "free"
