Product Description

The groundbreaking and critically acclaimed original series from Showtime returns on Blu-rayTM with all 12 thrilling and riveting episodes in Dexter®: The Third Season.

Having faced his darkest demons and eluding the FBI, Dexter has a new take on taking life when a high profile case puts him in the sights of the most powerful and influential D.A. in Miami. Will Dexter's need to do away with those that slip through the cracks finally lead to his undoing? Or will his new friend in the D.A.'s office prove to be all he needs to have his cake and eat it too?

From Amazon.co.uk

Showtime's breakout hit series Dexter, about a lovable psychopath, a serial killer who targets only the scummiest of the scum, hits its stride in season 3. Dexter Morgan, played with nuance and glee by the outstanding Michael C. Hall, begins the season somewhat chastened by the events of the previous season--where whiffs of his secret life became known to others and he was nearly found out. "I need to find out what it's like just to be normal. If that's something that's even possible for me," he muses, as he tries to settle in to domestic life with girlfriend Rita (the baby-voiced Julie Benz) and her kids.

Yet Dexter is soon back to his compulsion for seeking out criminals who've somehow escaped traditional justice. Hall, one of TV's most talented actors, manages to make Dexter's off-kilter moral compass totally believable, if not quite sympathetic. The rest of the cast is stellar, including Dex's sister, Debra, played by Jennifer Carpenter as the seemingly more combustible Morgan--a hot-tempered Miami detective in the same division where Dexter toils in the background as a blood-spatter specialist. Deb wears her heart on her sleeve, as a cop and a sister, and her deep love for her brother is a key part of what makes Dexter so human. (And Carpenter's chemistry with Hall is amped by the fact that in real life, the actors are married.)

Season 3's breakout guest star is the amazing Jimmy Smits, who plays District Attorney Miguel Prado, a polished pillar of the community, an ambitious politician--and a guy with a secret every bit as dark as Dexter's. As Miguel and Dexter peel away each other's unsavoury layers, Dexter tries to tamp down Miguel's blistering desire for revenge, and Miguel begins leading a double life--one that could threaten Dexter's life and family as much as the growing list of bad guys in Miguel's crosshairs. The other main star of Dexter is the city of Miami, its teeming beauty and corruption celebrated in equal measure, and its blistering sun shot without tempering. The city is so integral, visually and viscerally, that it's impossible to think of Dexter being shot anywhere else. It's a killer season. --A.T. Hurley

I bought this from one of the sellers(michasbooks). It came from Singapore. What great quality video. No fussing choosing language. The box is amazing. It has this thin plastic cover that has this blood-like liquid that moves about and drips down the cover.
A small touch but well thought out.
The show once again gives a golden performance. A new storyline. A move away from the previous seasons. Exploring new facets of Dexter's new confidence and self-exploration.
A friendship forms and leads to pretty dark sharing. Dexter explores such a close friendship that he's never had before.
I was hoping to string this out to 2 episodes a week. No chance! I ended up being a complete glutton with a final 6 episodes feast in one evening.
They develop each episode so well that its nearly impossible not to watch the next one.
I'm going to add though that this is no better than the first two episodes. That's not to put it down but I think sometimes one forgets the excitement of the previous seasons and how one felt with them. All 3 as far as I'm concerned are equally brilliant.
As usual with this though one does have to wonder on the attraction to a serial killer.
Personally I love the inner dialogue. I certainly feel I can identify with his social skills. Also do we all have such love for all our work colleagues and every social acquaintance? Dexter feels he's got dark issues because he feels he's not as attached as he should be. Yet I feel I identify with him in this area.
So although its a horrendous dark side it could be transposed with different things one doesn't want to openly discuss.

I must admit I'm surprised by some of the comments by other reviewers. Maybe this third series was not quite as good as the first couple of series. however, it is still fantastic gripping television and by far better than the majority of programmes showing on UK TV. Dexter is still well and truly amongst the cream of US imports delivering extremely well written, well acted & suspenseful TV. The stories and characters have all developed and it's fascinating watching the evolution of Dexter as life changes all around him.

Format: DVD
The saga of our lovable serial killer continues in the third season. After the high jinks of season two, where Dexter became the subject of a massive police and FBI man hunt, the action is more low key this time round. The season arc is about the hunt for the Skinner, but the real meat of the story is Dexter's relationship with ambitious, thrusting Assistant DA Miguel Prado (played by Jimmy Smits). Very early on, Dexter kills Prado's brother, but the two soon become close friends. To Dexter's surprise, Miguel's frustration with the rules and process of the criminal justice system lead them both to unexpected places. Set against this is Dexter's home life becoming more complicated; Rita is pregnant and a wedding is on the cards.

As with previous series, this deftly juggles dark humour with genuine emotion, and the very core of the story remains Dexter's search for himself. The relationship with his foul mouthed sister Deb continues to delight, and the cast of supporting characters are all hitting their stride.

This is hugely enjoyable television, and it has more depth than might appear at first glance. Highly recommended (but don't watch this until you have seen the previous two series)

PS Julie Benz has had some work done, hasn't she?

If you have seen seasons 1 and 2 then you know who Dexter is and what he does.
The 3rd season is excellent,as D continues to evolve in unusual ways.His "normal" persona is forming a strong attachment to the children of his girlfriend.So much so,that when there is the hint of a threat to them(in the form of a man D discovers is a pedophile),D breaks all the "rules" that govern his murderous behaviour(only kill convicted killers who got off on a technicality) to dispatch the pedophile before he can act.He also discovers his kind,caring,girlfriend is pregnant by him and is faced with the prospect of fatherhood!At the office,he steers his cop sister through a few cases to boost her chances of promotion,but the most intense part is when he is actually "caught" by an ambitious A.D.A at the scene of his latest victim.The ADA, does not turn in Dexter as he mistakenly believes that D has dispatched the murderer of his own brother.Thereafter, a strange relationship develops between the 2,that D ultimately must resolve.
Anyway ,lots of episodes that take D further.I was given the U.S. version by a friend,so am not sure what will be on the UK version.But the U.S. version has loads of extra's on disc 4.In general,I find the U.S. versions have a lot more on them than those sold in the UK,so if you can,and are a real fan,try to get the U.S. versions of DVD's.
