5.0 out of 5 stars Top quality show once again, 26 Nov 2009
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dexter Season 3. Region 2 and 4 [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this from one of the sellers(michasbooks). It came from Singapore. What great quality video. No fussing choosing language. The box is amazing. It has this thin plastic cover that has this blood-like liquid that moves about and drips down the cover.
A small touch but well thought out.
The show once again gives a golden performance. A new storyline. A move away from the previous seasons. Exploring new facets of Dexter's new confidence and self-exploration.
A friendship forms and leads to pretty dark sharing. Dexter explores such a close friendship that he's never had before.
I was hoping to string this out to 2 episodes a week. No chance! I ended up being a complete glutton with a final 6 episodes feast in one evening.
They develop each episode so well that its nearly impossible not to watch the next one.
I'm going to add though that this is no better than the first two episodes. That's not to put it down but I think sometimes one forgets the excitement of the previous seasons and how one felt with them. All 3 as far as I'm concerned are equally brilliant.
As usual with this though one does have to wonder on the attraction to a serial killer.
Personally I love the inner dialogue. I certainly feel I can identify with his social skills. Also do we all have such love for all our work colleagues and every social acquaintance? Dexter feels he's got dark issues because he feels he's not as attached as he should be. Yet I feel I identify with him in this area.
So although its a horrendous dark side it could be transposed with different things one doesn't want to openly discuss.

If you aren't aware that Michael C. Hall is in Six Feet Under: Complete Seasons 1-5 [2001] then you have 5 seasons of brilliant tv to watch as well. The quality of 6 feet under is just as good as dexter, although on a slightly different slant. I could see how the work of Michael in 6 feet under lead the creators of Dexter to choose him. Although he doesn't have the primary role, the other characters are really strong and interesting in very different ways.

Ciaran I am a huge fan of this series. Every cast member fits in so well. Dex's hot sister is just mental and we love her. I do miss Sergeant Dokes, he was so damn intense and imposing.
