I just started watching it and after the first episode I was hooked. I've been watching it on dvd's from Blockbuster & am about to start Season 3.
There are 5 Seasons altogether. Season 6 should start sometime this year. Guess I will have to subscribe to Showtime!
The show is about a stoic man who's job is to solve murders by investigating the blood patterns & forensics but when a murder is unsolved and the murderer walks free, he well, kills the murderer.
You fall in love with his character and you hang on his every word. His personality is so captivating. You are interested when he smiles, when he's mad and when he's just indifferent, which is most of the time.
He works with his sister who is constantly meeting the "wrong" man.
No one knows his secret but you can't wait for someone to find out.
I'm noticing that every season there is a theme.
The first season was about Dexter trying to find out who the Ice Truck Killer is and why he was leaving him messages.
The second season was about one of his co-workers finding out the "truth" about him.
So, it will be interesting to see what season 3 is about. I'm assuming there will be a "new" killer for him to be obsessed with or who is obsessed with him.
It's not about the killings, he's not a Jigsaw. All his victims are basically killed the same way, so there isn't anything really new or exciting there, well so far. It's not about that. It's about the feeling that he can get caught at any moment and nearly does every episode. The edge of your seat feeling of who might compromise his situation and would he actually kill certain people even though they aren't "bad".
Every episode you are wondering and wondering and you just don't know.
You can't hate him because he kills the "bad guys" but you can't exactly condone what he does. But in a way you don't really care. You're just worried about him getting caught.
It's really a captivating show and you just hang on the words of everyone, as if they are all there is and there is nothing else.
I cannot wait to receive Season 3 disc one in the mail any day now!!!!
I am waiting......................and I can't wait!!!!!!
