There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Not only that but when I had finished the boxset- and desperate for a further fix of thrills- I even ordered the full set of Jeff Lindsay’s books that the series is based on. Again I was not disappointed, they contained all the elements that I had loved from the series (most of all the dark humour) while being different enough that I didn’t feel like I was just running over the exact same story again (which excited me because it was like getting a whole new series with all the characters that I had grown so fond of).
Now I find myself, like my friend before me, not being able to recommend this series (and the books) highly enough!
Also, I might add, that if, like me, you find yourself desperately craving more when finishing everything ‘Dexter’ I have also stumbled upon another book in the Kindle store that you might appreciate too. It’s titled ‘The Buzz’: The Problems with Being a Serial Killer’ by the author M. P. d’Andilly. That’s about a killer too. It’s a different concept but has a similar sort of sarcastic/twisted humout to it in parts that I think fans of ‘Dexter’ will appreciate (I did).
I hope this review is helpful for you all.
This set is boxed well with the 33 discs split into two hard cases in the one outer box, the discs snapped into place in holders so they don't move about. Picture quality is good (not overly compressed) and there are a range of diverting extras across each series - a mix of interviews, behind the scenes and even interactive quizzes based on the events of that season.
Constantly seeking to understand his own motivations, this is also the story of a damaged individual desperate to come to terms with his mindset while being able to avoid detection by living a normal life. Frustratingly for Dexter, it appears that just about everybody he encounters is also, in their own way, pretty damaged.
I usually read crime fiction, so a boxed set was a bit of a departure for me – but I did enjoy the series – it’s not complicated to watch, the storylines are intriguing, usually fast and pacy, including loads of cliffhangers, the acting is believable with some great characters.
Dexter’s sister Debra, a Miami Cop, makes Gordon Ramsay’s language sound mild. There is a lot of effing and blinding (mainly from Debra), and some rather bloody scenes – but while the macabre bits are gruesome, I didn’t find them unwatchable – the storyline doesn’t concentrate soley on making the viewer feel sick, but I couldn’t recommend this to those of a very sensitive disposition.
This beautifully presented boxed set contains the complete series 1 - 8 of Dexter – each series is comprises 4 CDs, each CD contains 4 episodes, the episodes are around 40 minutes long, so there’s many, many hours of ‘binge watching’ here. If you don’t binge, the beginning of each episode gives a quick resume of what’s been happening in the series as a quick reminder, although I found the repetitive intros to each episode a bit tedious – I got the allegories the first time.
What I would have liked, is more of the forensic science, there is some, but that's not what the series concentrates on.
Well worth getting if you enjoy crime thrillers and don’t mind lots of fake blood.
Each season sees new twists and characters being introduced and that helps to keep things fresh. The last episode, in particular, lingers in your mind for a weirdly long time afterwards. 2 things I won't miss about 'Dexter' - the god awful signature music and Dexter's constant navel-gazing monologues. Dear me, he does go on a bit though. 2 things I will miss - Debra f*****g Morgan and the incredibly gorgeous Hannah.
On a well known streaming service I have seen most of the best Breaking Bad, 24, Band of Brothers and of course Dexter
Well my parents are quite set in their ways and have not embraced the Internet so I purchased Dexter for my father on my recommendation that it is certainly amongst the best Box Sets I have ever seen
