From Amazon.co.uk

Dark and sinister is the new sexy, thanks to Dexter, which in its second season has proven to be the most successful series Showtime has offered up yet. Remember how much you squirmed in your seat during the season one finale? Believe it or not, the premiere of season two felt like it could have been a season finale--because jaws were on the floor when the credits rolled. For being a supposed sociopath, Dex is pretty broken up about the gruesome events that concluded last season. The one and only person who could possibly understand him is six feet under, and it seems our unlikely hero is losing his homicidal grip. He’s even having a little trouble slicing up a few of his latest victims (from a murderous gang member to a chainsaw-wielding fiend from his past). Enter Lila (Jaime Murray, Hustle), a lady with a sweet British accent and a few dark secrets of her own. She seems to accept Dex for who he really is, and he finds himself feeling relaxed for the first time in his life. In contrast, his relationship with his girlfriend Rita (Julie Benz) has been stretched almost to a breaking point. The problem is, he should be anything but relaxed. Someone picked a poor place to go scuba diving off the Florida coast, and came across an underwater graveyard: Dex’s primo spot for dropping dismembered bodies wrapped in heavy-duty trash bags. Word about the "Bay Harbor Butcher" gets out quick, and the F.B.I. sends the best of the best, Special Agent Frank Lundy (Keith Carradine, Deadwood) to work alongside the police to sniff out Miami’s latest serial killer. This guy is no schlub, and Dex may have met his match. And, yes, Dexter gets to work with Lundy on a daily basis, which provides some wonderfully awkward moments. It certainly doesn’t help that the intuitively paranoid Sergeant Doakes (Erik King, Oz) is hot on Dex’s trail. Season two of Dexter is all about decisions. Lila or Rita? Old code or new code? Run or fight? Right or wrong? Well, one thing’s for sure: When it comes to writing, casting, acting, and production, the makers of this show made all the right decisions. Michael C. Hall is simply superb as the title character. You’ll never find yourself more willing to genuinely root for a serial killer. It’s bloody liberating. --Jordan Thompson

Product Description

All 12 episodes from Season 2 of the US drama series about a Miami police forensics expert who moonlights as an avenging serial killer. In this season Dexter (Michael C. Hall) is still carrying out his twisted brand of vigilante justice, but begins to doubt his murderous capabilities and continues to be haunted by his tortured past. His difficulties multiply when evidence of his deadly after-hours activities begins to surface and the FBI is brought in to investigate the city's new serial killer, known as the 'Bay Harbour Butcher'. Episodes are: 'It's Alive!', 'Waiting to Exhale', 'An Inconvenient Lie', 'See-Through', 'The Dark Defender', 'Dex, Lies and Videotape', 'That Night a Forest Grew', 'Morning Comes', 'Resistance Is Futile', 'There's Something About Harry', 'Left Turn Ahead' and 'The British Invasion'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can this show get any better?! 24 April 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
After being engrossed in Season one when it aired on ITV last year, I immediately bought the box set. Then I waited patiently for a year until season 2 was aired (then I was unaware of it being on FX) and I couldn't wait. Was I disappointed? No! My only concern is that season 3 won't come out until this time next year as ITV take a year to show it even though it will have shown on FX and finished by the summer holidays!

In my opinion, as many others also feel, this is superior to season 1 and that is some feat. Departing from the novels, the series begins to delve further into the characters and especially Dexter as he appears to start growing a conscience and scepticism over harry's 'code' and he is caring more about life and people around him as his eyes are opened by the amazingly disturbed Lila Tourney (Jaime Murray). It's nice to have some British blood in such a great show and alot of British flesh as she seems to be half, if not fully, naked most of the time.

The body count in this series is less so than the first but I think this benefits the show as I have always believed that the strength of Dexter is not being a TV show for horror fans but an engaging, tense and gripping drama for everyone to enjoy where the main character happens to be a serial killer of serial killers. In some ways it annoys me that the show is promoted as such as it makes many people not want to watch it but trust me you will love it even if you are squeamish. The gore in the show, not too much, is not supposed to be cool and disgustingly OTT as it is in films like 'Saw' and 'Hostel'. It is shown for what it is and it's only very rarely that we see a blood fest. You never actually see Dexter cutting the bodies up you only ever see the end product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Season 2 better than ever. 8 Mar 2009
Format:DVD
I'm loving the second series even more - the edge-of-the-seat situation with Dexter being hunted (by his own sister!); although I think Jaime Murray is rather 'wooden', her character has added an 'edgy' balance to the darker side, although I hope he gets back with Rita. The humour is great, especially Dexter's voiceover comments as he watches the manhunt closing in... will there be a 3rd series!? Michael C Hall is fantastic!

Format:DVD
This series makes for compelling viewing, the turn of events leave you having to watch the next episode. It is far better than the first series and the script is much more dramatic and far less predictable. We begin to see the monster inside Dexter as the series progresses. As a viewer we are toyed with and our sympathies shift to different character as Dexter becomes difficult to root for. His mask slips to reveal the dangerous psychotic coming apart at the seams. I see Dexter as more of a soap opera than a real dramatic serial to be taken seriously, it is not something I imagined myself liking. Dexter has plot holes galore and is greatly overshadowed by truly great and well written series such as The Sopranos, The Wire and Breaking Bad but for simple entertainment is is fun and has a great 'watchability' factor.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up a gear 7 Oct 2008
By The usual suspect TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I'm stunned that the other reviewers find the second season doesn't at least match the first.
To me, the first season was excellent but season 2 surpasses it with a neater storyline. The climax is just simply amazing! It's a perfect balance of a comedy, mystery and thriller.
Bring on season three, I hope they can maintain the pace.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hooked by now 18 May 2011
Format:DVD
Season 2 keeps up the Soprano-style tension between your affection for this lovable serial killer and the nagging voice of your conscience telling you there's something wrong about rooting for a compulsive murderer. For girl-watchers, there are now three (count 'em!) skinny, sexy girls involved in the proceedings, establishing a clear trademark look for the series (newcomer Lila is a bit phony at the onset, but begins to make more sense as time goes by). The black humor remains at a constant high, with plot twists galore to keep you on the edge of your seat. Michael C. Hall's understated acting would be enough to carry the show, but I have to admit Erik King as his nemesis, Sgt. Doakes, is my favorite character (despite an illogical trip to Haiti, what were you thinking, man?!!!). Good show.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another brilliant series 26 Nov 2010
Format:DVD
Great acting and production meaning, as in the first season, that I had a couple of late nights where I ended up watching three episodes on the trot as I had to see " what happened next". My only gripe, and it's a personal one, is that there is just something that grates in the way that the English are often represented in American series. All too often seem to sound like a throwback to the 60's to me.
Lots of menace, lots of people getting what they deserve, lots of great acting and lots of Michael C Hall serving up one of TVs greatest character. From the moment the camera pans back to reveal a sea of black sacks I was hooked. A quick thnks to my brother for recommending Dexter to me - I knew he'd do something right one day!
