Here we go again. Another CSI clone. Haven't we seen this all before? Well actually, not quite. There is nothing quite like Dexter.

Dexter Morgan (played by the outstanding Michael C. Hall) is a blood splatter analyst. Dexter is also a serial killer, or occasional killer, who kills the criminals who escape justic by administering some of his own.

Dexter was a troubled boy, adopted as a toddler and gaining a sister, (played by the fiery Jennifer Carpenter) with whom he now works along side, and brought up by an honest cop, who realised that Dexter was no ordinary thinking boy. Using knowledge and techniques shown to him by his father, Dexter has forged a 'career' as a very tidy and neat monster, as well as being a brilliant forensic analyst.

When attending a crime scene in sunny Miami, Dexter is shocked to be told that there is no blood for him to examine here. With surgical precision, a body has been dismembered and almost presented perfectly, waiting to be discovered. Neatly wrapped body parts leave Dexter with a challenge - to improve his own killing technique and to find the one who becomes known as 'The Ice Truck Killer'.

There are many more twists and turns as the story unfolds and we discover much more about Dexter, and that he is an emotionless character much of the time, and very quiet, almost to the point of becoming an outcast and occasionally exploding in a crescendo of violence. Despite the madness and murder, Dexter has gained respect from most of his collegues whilst hiding the fact that he has a murderous evening and weekend job. Of course there is dark humour to lift the mood slightly, only before letting the viewer plunge back into the hellish psyche of the Miami serial killer division.

Dexter is a meticulously crafted modern television masterpiece, eclipsing our very own 'Waking The Dead' and leaving a bitter sweet taste in the mouth that leaves you wanting so much more.

I had heard of Dexter when it was shown on FX on Sky and was wondering if they would have it on normal tv which they did on ITV 1. But due to really late times at night, I fell asleep during many of the epsodies which really annoyed me. So on my birthday, I went to get it and had finally finished it last night savouring every single one. Dexter is a serial killer with a heart, caring for his foul-mouthed but sweet foster sister and being the boyfriend of a beaten woman with two kids that he really adores. But behind the scenes, he kills only the bad people and tries to be semi normal around Doakes who is very suspious of him. With a shocking serial killer called The Ice Truck Killer, Dexter dosent' realise that this person is going to be hugely involved in his life and everything that he holds dear could be in total danger. It's excellent, twisted, shocking at times, gory, sexy and just good fun. Every epsoide has some dark laughs and brilliant pefomances from the stars inculding Michael C Hall who was outstanding in Six Feet Under. I would highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys a series with twists and turns only to be warned that it's qutie gory and you may eat a lot because he surely does! A perfect buy.

Read the book before watching the series and for once, the T.V. version is much better.Dexter is a complicated character played with great panache by Michael C Hall who really brings the character to life on the screen. - The fact that he's "easy on the eye" is an added bonus! While the viewer knows that Dexter is basically a murdering vigilante and what he does is against the law one can't but help liking him and even empathising with his way of thinking and actions.The use of voiceover from Dexter gives the viewer further insights into his character and way of thinking. The cast of secondary characters are also interesting and several story lines weave their way through this excellent series.From the extremely imaginative opening credits - totally in keeping with the flavour of the show - I was completely hooked on this series from the very first episode and can't wait to see how Dexter develops in series 2, currently being shown on T.V. here in the U.K.

Myself and my husband were completely gripped by this, from the word go! It's unlike anything else on TV at the moment, and I know some people compare it to CSI, but I personally think it's a million times better than that due to it's unique characters and storylines. Ordered Season 2, can't wait to see what happens next!

This series is highly addictive. The cinematography is excellent. I've only reached programme 6 - and I can't wait to see the rest ... AND I've got two other series to look forward to. Its been a salvation for the World Cup.
It does not fail to leave me with an uneasy feeling for the whole day afterwards. Even the introduction gets me feeling all queasy. This is not an advertisement for the Miami tourist board.

If your fed up of the same-old crime series' on TV, give this a try. Its certainly different ! You wont be disappointed. NOT FOR THE FAINT HEARTED.

Format: DVD
For me personally `Dexter' was one of those slow burner series that gathers pace. Initially I was pretty ambivalent about it and wasn't too fussed when I watched the next episode, but by the fifth episode I was hooked and I watched the remainder of the series in quick succession. Following a blood spatter forensic analyst (Dexter) who investigate murders by day and carries them out by night, the concept it both original and chilling. Dexter is careful to choose his victims very carefully and only murders those most `deserving' because they have gotten away with heinous crimes of their own. This creates the dichotomy of the series where you are left rooting for the `bad' guy. Michael C Hall is as amazing as ever and his detached portrayal of Dexter's emotions makes you appreciate the latent psychotic aspect of his character that is revealed (and nurtured by his foster father) throughout the series. The series has a common storyline throughout, hunting the ice truck killer, as well as individual stories for each episode where Dexter kills his own victims. Overall the acting is excellent from all involved, apart from the actor who plays Dokes who comes across as overly gung ho and the archetype `macho' cop and the actress who plays Deb, Dexter's sister, who is wooden and has terrible dialogue delivery. The finale is brilliant and had me on the edge of my seat throughout and it had some great twists that were excellent pay off for watching the complete series (no cop outs here!). If you don't mind some violence and loads of blood, but want some excellent acting and plotlines then this is the series for you and I can't wait to buy the second!
