Dexter Morgan is a police forensics expert, family man, and serial killer. Luckily he confines his murderous instincts to those criminals who have avoided justice, and he avoids capture by rigorously following rules laid down by his adoptive father, a policeman who realised Dexter was "different". The show never flinches away from the ugly truth, that Dexter is a sociopathic murderer who just happens to prey on bad people. He's always one mistake away from being a monster, and he knows it.

It's probably fair to say that season four of Dexter was a triumph, with an excellent plotline and a truly shocking ending. The challenge for season five was how to follow that. The first episode opens minutes after the shocking finale of season four. Dexter had spent much of that season trying to see a way to combine a family life with his murderous impulses, and thought he had managed to deal with the threat of the Trinity killer and find a way forward. However, the last scene of the series destroyed all that, and now he has to try and deal with the consequences.

Some of the smaller problems are that Detective Quinn becomes suspicious of Dexter and hires someone to investigate him, and that Dexter's precarious relationship with his step-children is wrecked. However, the main plot sees Dexter find someone he might be able to share his issues with properly, and is a decent attempt to follow season four without copying it. The new characters, and the murderous plot surrounding them, are good, and the casting is excellent. Nothing meets the heights of the Ice Truck Killer or Trinity, but it's a worthy addition to the show. However, whereas Trinity's psyche was explored fully last season, the new main threat finishes the season without their mindset really being explained.

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!!

Well, I feel I am about to unleash the wrath of fans, because I have a fair few problems with this, the fifth season of a show I think is pretty much the best slice of TV for years. Still, being a fan shouldn't require the loss of critical faculties, so here goes (a list in no particular order):

Season 5 is rather weak visually. After four years of exemplary production, we're suddenly confronted with a few poor quality sets, significantly less creative lighting, and some very pedestrian camera work.

The quality of writing seems to have deteriorated (though not across the board). This is particularly noticable with Dexter's step children who previously, in my view, were the benchmark of excellence for child actors. But in season 5 they have little in the way of innovative, plausible material to work with ... and it shows.

There are some gruelling continuity problems, most manifest in Quinn. Given that season 5 is meant to begin a mere few minutes after the end of season 4, it's somewhat unlikely that Quinn would have undergone such drastic physical changes ... truth is initially I wasn't entirely convinced I was witnessing the same performer - Desmond Harrington. Let's face it, Desmond's been on one harsh diet/workout regime, and possibly taken a detour via the cosmetic surgery clinic. It doesn't help that the writers haven't managed to maintain what was becoming quite a complex, interesting characterisation.

But most seriously, season 5 lacks narrative depth. The ethical quandaries ... aren't. Maybe this is a show that just happened to tap in to four years of challenging moral explorations, but I think there's more to it than luck. The loss of a key writer and exec producer has certainly eroded the show's strengths.

Before I start this review I will just say I'm a huge fan of Dexter, I've been there right from the start - read the first novel and couldn't wait when I found out a TV series was been made (and who would have guessed it would be ten times better than the book!).

It has to be said though, season 5 was a little bit weak, and certainly didn't do a good job of following up on the excellent season 4 with the chilling Trinity Killer climax.

My main gripe with the season was, it did seem to be basically a re-hash of the season 3 storyline with the Jimmy Smits character Miguel Prado. We find Dexter, half in shock at the death of Rita find a new `friend' in the form of a female victim of abuse, obsessed with getting revenge on the men who hurt her. Because she is female, vulnerable and mentally scared, the relationship between Lumen and Dexter is obviously different than the one between Dexter and Miguel, but it's basically the same set up - can Dexter have a partner in crime and share his ritual? Felt very much like old ground.

Another problem with the series is the main storyline (the tracking and "dealing with" the group of men who hurt Lumen, headed by the Jonny Lee Miller character Jordan Chase) just doesn't have enough depth and substance, consequently I got the feeling that the whole thing was been eaked out to fill the 12 episodes, and by the end of this I really didn't care what happened to Jordan Chase - compared to the previous series, the whole thing seems a total none-event.

Side storylines include Dexter's son Harrison and his new nanny (I agree with another reviewer, they are very much just slotted in when convenient).
