5.0 out of 5 stars Dexter's brilliance continues, 28 Jan 2011
This review is from: Dexter - Season 3 [DVD] (DVD)
The saga of our lovable serial killer continues in the third season. After the high jinks of season two, where Dexter became the subject of a massive police and FBI man hunt, the action is more low key this time round. The season arc is about the hunt for the Skinner, but the real meat of the story is Dexter's relationship with ambitious, thrusting Assistant DA Miguel Prado (played by Jimmy Smits). Very early on, Dexter kills Prado's brother, but the two soon become close friends. To Dexter's surprise, Miguel's frustration with the rules and process of the criminal justice system lead them both to unexpected places. Set against this is Dexter's home life becoming more complicated; Rita is pregnant and a wedding is on the cards.

As with previous series, this deftly juggles dark humour with genuine emotion, and the very core of the story remains Dexter's search for himself. The relationship with his foul mouthed sister Deb continues to delight, and the cast of supporting characters are all hitting their stride.

This is hugely enjoyable television, and it has more depth than might appear at first glance. Highly recommended (but don't watch this until you have seen the previous two series)

PS Julie Benz has had some work done, hasn't she?
