I just dont have words to describe the show, it was so good that it made me find the book and read it. It turned out that the show is ten times better than the book. The book was boring, slow and nothing like the show, the show has more characters, which are more sophisticated and it really grabs you.
Each episode gets better and better!

Stunning!Rating: 2 likes, 1 dislikes
I just finished the last episode of Dexter and I am still amazed. Never seen a show this surprisingly and addicting, not even The Sopranos or Six Feet Under, which where my favourites.
The show starts strong and stays strong untill the end. I wonder if there will be a following up season, when it does, I'll have questionmarks if it will overrule this one, this show is just perfect!

Michael Hall has that thing in his eyes which fits him perfect in the role of Dexter. It's fragile but killing at the same time. His role in Six Feet Under is also superb. When you haven't seen this show yet, shame on you, go see that one aswell, immediately!!

Sympathy for a serial killer.Rating: 2 likes, 1 dislikes
Excellent acting, really interesting and original Storyline.
The story is told in a special way that makes it really interesting following it.
None of the episodes are so-called "fillers", so it's always interesting, and you CAN'T miss an episode!
all the episodes hang together to form a great season finale, and that makes the show so powerful and exciting!
without spoiling anything, I think both season 1 AND season 2 (and so far season 3 is the best) was incredible. now this is very rare, and usually tv-shows disappoints on the second season. but Dexter just keeps on amazing me, with genius manuscripts, great actors, and just... wow... Dexter is one of the best shows I've seen in a while, and it REALLY separates from any other crime, thriller or drama show. this show is a must see.

At first, I thought the season would not measure up to past seasons. With the additional of John Lithgow I should have had faith. This show knows how to gradually pull you in to every episode, and then abruptly slaps you in the face with the end. You then are left with a week filled with anticipation of what the episode will give. Just and amazing show.

Dexter for TeensRating: 1 likes, 2 dislikes
Seasons 1 through 4 were outstanding and groundbreaking. However somewhere around season 3, they started to introduce more and more melodrama scenes. And now as we are in season 6, I find that Dexter is a mixture of a soap opera and a pg-13 horror (suspense) movie. They obviously have been trying to target a younger audience starting with season 5 and the terrible actress that is julia stiles. i feel that she singlehandedly ruined the whole season of dexter for everyone with her terrible acting and presence, much like Katie Holmes absurd appearance in Batman Begins. Now we are in season 6 and it's worse than last season. Colin Hanks has absolutely no business being cast into this series. He is a terrible actor and has proven nothing with his lackluster resume. It's not hard to realize that his daddy surely gets Colin plenty of decent roles. Also add straight to video actor Edward James Olmos and you've hit the jackpot, that is for a total shit season. Dexter has transformed from groundbreaking and compelling to mediocre and passe, much like the rest of Showtime's lineup. Homeland however is exceptional and has taken the thrown from Dexter as Showtime's best series. I really cannot believe they renewed Weeds for another season, meanwhile the series has progressively gotten worse and worse since season 5, with last season among the worst seasons of any series I've ever seen. Showtime has some new life with House of Lies and a new season from Californication to look forward to. But there's nothing to look forward to in regards to Dexter, as it's become some PG-13 teen horror flick for ages 13-25. End the series now or start over from scratch and fire the entire crew, then Dexter can be 'born again'. Otherwise, we'll probably see the cast of Twilight in next season of Dexter.
