Love this series,
This review is from: Dexter - Seasons 1-3 Complete [DVD] (DVD)
I bought this 3 series box set, never having actually watched an episode of Dexter on television before.
Though he's a very dark and disturbed character, you can't help liking him all the same, and he's the only serial killer you never want to get caught!
This show is so well written and well cast, but to me, it's the acting talents of Michael C. Hall that makes the whole thing work so well. I've never seen him in anything else, but he's just so good as this complex character, trying to pretend he's something he's not. I do have to look away sometimes when he's performing his grizzly deeds, though it's not too graphic, thankfully. I like the little nuggets of dark humour dotted through the script, it's just the right amount and well done.
I'm not easily pleased when it comes to tv programmes, and was surprised at how quickly this show won me over. I'm now a big fan.
