My Rating 10/10
In truth the first few episodes of the first season didn't really grab me that much, but luckily i stuck with it, and i'm very glad i did. You should too.
The writers take the initial premise of the 'likeable' Serial Killer 'Dexter', who exacts brutal justice to his victims but (and here's the twist) only to those who truly deserve it, on an engaging (and surprisingly believable) emotional journey of self-discovery. That may sound a bit trite, but the series is so well written it never becomes preachy or predictable. In fact the opposite is true. This series is very brave too and is most certainly a very 'adult' themed drama'. It touches on edgy subjects rarely approached by Television and does it with intelligence, with a large chunk of black humour.
As a whole the Dexter experience is rare in that it is an intelligent, challenging and deeply engaging series - and you will identify with a lot more of his personal dilemma's than you might think. Its just the best thing on TV at the moment and is really not to be missed.
Intelligent, dark, funny, morally challenging and very addictive. Dexter is superb TV !!
