Product Description

After playing a mild-mannered funeral home director in Six Feet Under, Michael C. Hall makes a smooth transition to a serial killer in this original series. But the twist in this smart show is that Dexter chooses to prey only on other serial killers. As a child, Dexter was adopted by a cop (James Remar) who quickly realises that his new son is no ordinary boy. Since Dexter is compelled to kill, his law-abiding father pushes him to choose his quarry in a way that will best benefit society. As Dexter grows older, he works as a forensic blood-splatter expert in Miami, giving him a close view of other murderers and their handiwork. Stylish and blackly comic, this drama is adapted from Jeff Lindsay's novel Darkly Dreaming Dexter.

This collection presents the complete fourth series which sees Dexter and his family move out to the suburbs along with their newborn baby boy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dexter is still on top - Lithgow's finest hour? 31 Dec 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got this DVD for christmas and what a season it is. Having watched Dexter since the first season was aired on ITV, I have been hooked. Fans of the show will know what I mean as Dexter is such an addictive show to watch. This is the first season I have seen straight on DVD and not on TV. As such, you naturally lose some of the suspense as you don't have to wait for the next episode to air.

Now, season 4 is very strong. It has different airs and graces compared to others but this is natural as I think we have to agree that each season of Dexter has its own distinctive feel, which is what keeps it so fresh. This season sees the arrival of a new serial killer, dubbed the Trinity Killer, played by the virtuosic John Lithgow. Lithgow is undoubtedly the star of the season and you will soon find that he illuminates (or should I say darkens) every single scene he is in. He is perhaps the creepiest character ever seen in the show and he even freaks Dexter out! Personally, I think Lithgow's performance makes the show here. Dexter seems to have lost his slick and cunning style we are so used to. This is no reflection on Michael C Hall as he is merely playing his part to perfection as the guy juggling too many balls. Lithgow oozes with cool, disturbia, violence, sympathy and evil all in equal proportions. Perhaps the finest performance by an actor in Dexter history.

I will not reveal any plot twists, as the show relies on them so much, but all I will say is that be prepared for some shocks and twists and turns as per usual with Dexter. The first few episodes are dominated by Dexter trying to balance his new family life with his job and his habit. I thought the baby would feature more heavily in the season but actually it is Astor and Cody who provide the most interest out of the children.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just gets better and better 18 Aug 2010
Format:DVD
After season 2 I was a little disappointed by the direction taken by the writers. The coincidences and plots were simply too far fetched to ask even the most willing viewer to suspend belief. That said series 3 picked up and was simply spectacular, right up there with Breaking Bad for some of the best TV you'll be fortunate to see.

A recent trip presented the opportunity to catch up on season 4 and I can honestly say Dexter has once again raised the bar. Dexter is married, has a young baby, growing stepchildren added to which a new predator is killing in Miami. The game is on.

Casting John Lithgow was inspired and he leaves a very memorable character in Dexter history.

It is just starting on TV (FX) but this is one you might very well wish to buy. Outstanding.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just stunning 26 Mar 2011
Format:DVD
As a fan of the first 3 series of Dexter and enjoying them all, I was expecting season 4 to be equally good but certainly not as amazing as it was!! Gripping from the outset it is full of tension, twists and turns. The performances of Michael C Hall and John Lithgow (as serial killer Trinity) are mesmerising and make it the season to remember. The supporting cast remain stellar, particularly Jennifer Carpenter as hard knock sister Deb and Julie Benz as long suffering but optimistic and lovable wife Rita. Just when you think Dexter has the measure of Trinity there is one final twist. The ending is one of the most profound and moving bits of television I think I've seen....and shocking!! I had goosebumps and felt uneasy for days after. The only question is how are the writers going to match such brilliance with season 5. Yet to see it in the UK, hopefully soon....

5.0 out of 5 stars FOOD FOR THOUGHT 14 Mar 2011
By Mr. D. L. Rees TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Another strong season. Baby Harrison deprives Dexter of sleep, he making mistakes at work - some of them serious. Chief adversary this time round is the Trinity Killer (chillingly played by John Lithgow). Dexter is disturbed to recognize in him too many aspects of himself and fears he may similarly become deranged attempting to keep separate two ways of life. Could he have made a fatal misjudgment - complications abounding with a wife, her two children and now a baby?

Michael C. Hall, as ever, is excellent as Miami's bloodsplatter expert - secretly ensuring retribution for murderers who thought they had got away with it. The ghost of his cop dad remains at hand to advise. Some may consider the subplot of romance between two senior officers a ploy to eke out episodes, but the season contains tension, gore and surprises in abundance - more than enough to satisfy.

12 episodes, the last one with commentary. Bonuses show how stunts and grisly effects were achieved. There is also a quiz to see how closely we have been following. Especially enjoyed was the chat between Lithgow and Hall - chemistry evident, which made their many scenes together so riveting.

With a great central performance, so much humour and style, the series captivates. Should we really be so much on the side of a serial killer? Dexter's good nature, charm and vulnerability make him hard to resist.
