High Five for this season,
This review is from: Dexter - Season 5 [DVD] (DVD)
Not been moved to review before, but all the Dexter series have been excellent (my personal ranking - 5,1,4,3,2). However, whilst i agree that the season started slowly, I thought the final episode one of the finest and most moving pieces of television I have seen in a long time. I thought I was going to be disappointed when I realised Dexter was going to "team up" with someone else - how could that work? Work it did and how? Julia Stiles was brilliant as was Johnny Lee Miller - love the understated menace. Peter Weller was inspired casting...he does grubby like no one else. Niggles..yeah, I have some:
I have to agree with an earlier reviewer - when did Quinn get a part time job as a male model?
Would have been good to understand what pushed Quinn and Deborah together? ( male model looks I guess)
There's plot holes you could drive a car through, but aren't there always and we love it just the same.
Wish I'd waited for the DVD so I didn't get stuck with those bl**dy adverts for deodorant every 12mins watching on FX
I'm not getting enough sleep as I invariably have to watch the Sky+ recording at about 6am on Saturday or Sunday morning!
Brilliant acting, bloody, tense, great characters and, to top it all, my first grandson is due in November...and what are his non-Dexter watching parents to name him?..........................Harrison! I'm putting a lock on the knife drawer!!
