3.0 out of 5 stars feel bad about this
I have decided not to watch Season 8 as I have read bits about it and don't want any more let downs.I wanted to see some hope for Dexter and Debra even if it meant living in hiding.If I thought that I would be left without hope for them I would not have watched in the first place .The acting has been great but life is hard enough and I will no longer watch.

4.0 out of 5 stars Return to form, 17 Dec 2012
This review is from: Dexter - Season 7 [DVD] (DVD)
*It's very hard to review this season without spoilers as such mild spoilers akin to what's been in trailers will be included but if you'd rather go in with no knowledge best to avoid.

Following the blood soaked finale of season 4 Dexter has had a lot to live up to, five fell short of this, six even more so with a lacklustre main villain and inconsequential stories, Dexter was showing signs of wear, maybe a season too far? However season 7 becomes a blazing return to from for the show, not perfect but a huge improvement and the most engaging the show has been since Trinity.

Picking up where season 6 ends (which should have been end of 5) Dexter faces the consequences for the murder of Travis before his sister's eyes but soon finds himself with bigger problems, a key figure of the kashca brotherhood targets him for vengeance and he finds himself a new love interest in the guise of the damaged and possibly dangerous Hannah.

Season 7 smartly decides to recognise its past; Dexter as a show has a tendency to hit the reset button at the end of a season with the exception of Rita, each season acts as a separate story rather than acknowledging what came before. Season 7 finally picks up on the rich tapestry the show has weaved for itself, connecting the dots right back to the start and how they play into present day, it's a smart move, one the gives the show new and exciting direction.

Dexter's revelation to Deb finally gives the two something new to do together and gives Jennifer Carpenter a real chance to shine, as the emotional toil takes hold of her, confused and conflicted about what to do next, a big improvement over the caricature she has become the last couple of seasons, pouting off potty mouthed one liners. Indeed the relationship between the adopted siblings takes centre stage this season and easily the most interesting thread, as what to do following Dexter's crime becomes a bigger and bigger weight, it will be a turbulent season for the pair and by the finale big changes will come.

Ray Stevenson of HBO's Rome turns up at this year's big bad and is easily one of the best. Rather than being all out nuts or irredeemable of any good qualities, Issak is a much more human character equally dangerous but charismatic and interesting, indeed Dexter and Issak's exchanges superbly written and acted by the pair are very resonant, the parallels between the two stronger than either would care to admit. Chuck alum Yvonne Strahovski also joins as the intriguing Hannah, as well as being rather nice to look at she brings a layered performance to the damaged Hannah, her relationship with Dexter neither enabling or disabling and a fresh take on Dexter's hidden/exposed relationships of the past.

The minor bad points, Quinn's side-story is poor, very poor, like taking a cliché from every cop show and rolling them into one, strippers with hearts of gold, money bribes, trying to go straight, undermining investigations, you name it, it's there and a distraction from the main season story. The character of Louis introduced in last season is handled very poorly, his motivations for his fascination with Dexter thin to say the least but thankfully his story is rounded off quickly.

The last few episodes see Dexter in serious danger of loosing it, and some real changes for the character down to his very core, and the finale delivers a shocking conclusion, easily the best since season 4, as Dexter again sees the price of what his need has cost those around him.

This season has restored my faith in Dexter and with the final season next year I'll definitely been tuning in.

A must have for Dexter fans, this is possibly the best series yet. The scenes between Dexter and Deb are powerful and moving, the plot twists and turns as unpredictable as ever. Major developments for several of the long standing characters and a shock ending. Can't wait to see the last series.

This review is from: Dexter - Season 7 [DVD] (DVD)
This season does much to try and tie up loose ends as we see a flashback to Deb and Dexter's childhood. The new villain of the piece is actor Ray Stevenson and he is set to play the head of a Ukrainian crime syndicate who lands in Miami single-minded purpose to find out who killed one of his associates. A rather unsavoury character is played by Jason Gedrick playing the manager of a Miami-area gentlemen's club that becomes connected to a high-profile murder case. Hannah McKay, a lady with a "checkered past" who arrives to help Miami Metro Homicide revive an old murder case out of joint benefit, and becomes Dexter's love interest. The season has its flaws as Quinn's side story is so sublime. Dexter's sister Deb now knows about her brother's predilections and the way her character tries to deal with the conflict within her is good television. LaGuerta begins investigating a blood slide Dexter accidentally left at the church and becomes increasingly suspicious of Dexter. This is season where Dexter fails in some of his attempts to kill and where his sister is tested - very sorely tested.

This review is from: Dexter - Season 7 [DVD] (DVD)
Just been watching these as they went out in America and there hasn't been one bad episode yet! It starts off exactly where the season 6 cliffhanger left off and just escalates from there. Can not wait to have this on dvd :D

This review is from: Dexter - Season 7 [DVD] (DVD)
I have just finished watching this season and it has been amazing, not wanting to spoil it but it moves away from the whole there is a big killer he has to take down but this story line has been so tense and exciting and I would say one of the best so far and any Dexter fan will enjoy season 7 which ends with you screaming nooooo I cannot wait till next year to find out what happens, I will be pulling my hair out till then I think!
