4.6 out of 5 stars (302) IMDb 8.8/10

He'’s smart, good-looking, and he'’s got a great sense of humor. Michael C. Hall stars as Dexter, everyone’s favorite serial killer. He spends his sun-drenched days solving crimes – and moonlit nights committing them. But not to worry, our cool-blooded Dexter doesn'’t kill just anyone. He reserves his homicidal hobbies to talking only the lives of other killers.

Michael C. Hall, Julie Benz

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.

If I describe this excellent series it will sound worse than it is so please do not be put off from trying it.

Dexter, a forensic `blood splatter analyst' for the Miami Police, is a secret `controlled sociopath'.

A sociopath is a person with a currently untreatable mental condition whereby they have no conscience, remorse or sympathy to restrain selfish, destructive or violent impulses.

It is of course easy for someone like that to become a criminal and many do.

However, many others, the controlled sociopaths like Dexter, while realising they are different, learn to live mostly unnoticed among us, mimicking our behaviour so as not to stand out. Such people are restrained in their conduct not by any solid sense of morality or sympathy for others, but by learning that life is easier if they work within society's laws and morality; or at least, to seem to do so enough not to be caught.

In Dexter's case his adoptive father, a policeman, recognised early on that Dexter was a sociopath, but instead of disowning him taught him to direct his more violent and destructive impulses in a way that is, arguably, better both for Dexter and for society than if he had become a straight criminal. By night he secretly tracks down and eliminates murderers, rapists and such like he encounters in his day job as a scientist with the Miami Police Department who are clearly guilty but who cannot be convicted under the law with all its procedural safeguards.

I know that probably sounds terrible, but, as I have said, it will sound worse than it is so please do not be put off from trying Dexter.

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.

Dexter is a fantastic show. The cast does a fantastic job of portraying several main characters. Character development is very important and it's definitely where the story shines through strongest.

The main character Dexter Morgan is a serial killer that targets bad criminals that have escaped justice. He also leads a double life by working as a Blood Spatter Analyst for the Miami-Metro Police Department. There are several major characters including Debra Morgan (Dexter's sister who works for the police), James Doakes (a tough uncompromising officer who has a lot of anger within), Vince Masuka (a forensic expert), Maria LaGuerta (Dexter's boss for most of the series) and Angel Batista (a noble officer who tries to do the right thing).

Dexter is trying to come to terms with who he is. He is an introverted individual who has a clinical view on life. He was taught by his adopted father Harry Morgan who trained him to be normal and to only take out his frustration on those who are guilty. Many of these lessons are shown in flashbacks and these are often in moments when Dexter suddenly gets a reminder of his past.

While Dexter is an anti-hero, he is an interesting individual who often goes overlooked by the general public. Each episode enhances the story and creates a believable world. The vistas of Miami are very atmospheric and definitely conjure imagery of nice sunny holidays, the complete opposite of some of the more brutal and extreme crime scenes.

The series has many twists and turns and constantly surprises the viewer. Definitely a highlight, particularly in the genre of Detective Television shows.
