I was due to have my tonsils out a few weeks ago and had heard good things from a few friends about Dexter so I thought this would be a good way to pass the time while I recovered. Unfortunately the operation was cancelled but I pressed ahead anyway and got through all 5 seasons in somewhere between 1 and 2 weeks. It all seems a bit of a blur looking back on it but I was glued to the box set, always thinking there was time for 1 or two more episodes to find out what happened to Dexter and whether he'd get caught. Each series concentrates on a different problem/person for Dexter to overcome whilst moving forward on other aspects of his story so it doesn't get stale and repetitive. You really find yourself routing for his character and willing him on, hoping he doesn't get caught, etc and there are some rather convenient solutions to problems he faces which don't require him to break the code of Harry, but it is a great show and this boxed set is good value for money. I would highly recommend it to someone with some time on their hands, but beware you will get addicted and find yourself still awake at 3am wondering where the time went and whether you can get in one more episode before going to bed!
