Product Description

Product Description

All 12 episodes from the eighth and final season of the American crime drama about a Miami police forensics expert who kills those he believes have escaped justice. Dexter (Michael C. Hall) was orphaned at the age of three after the murder of his mother, an incident which implanted in him a fierce desire to punish those who commit criminal acts. While avoiding suspicion with a genial and helpful professional facade by day, when off-duty Dexter remorselessly hunts down those he believes have escaped the justice of the law and takes his vengeance. The episodes are: 'A Beautiful Day', 'Every Silver Lining...', 'What's Eating Dexter Morgan?', 'Scar Tissue', 'This Little Piggy', 'A Little Reflection', 'Dress Code', 'Are We There Yet?', 'Make Your Own Kind of Music', 'Goodbye Miami', 'Monkey in a Box' and 'Remember the Monsters?'.

Some fans clearly hoped for a humdinger final season - Dexter pitted against a serial killer spectacularly to eclipse all those encountered before.

Instead all is far more subdued, far more personal. Sister Debra is alarmingly in free fall after recent events, Dexter desperately striving to bring her back to normality. Now, more than ever, he wishes to settle, to be a good father to little Harrison (who hopefully has not inherited certain tendencies).

Newcomer Dr. Evelyn Vogel (Charlotte Rampling) has an important part to play. She had been close to Dexter's father Harry and helped him to perfect the growing lad's homicidal leanings (she surely thus not an asset to her profession). Psychopaths are her specialty - she now seemingly targeted by a former patient, she sent part of his victims' brains. Here is one Dexter badly needs to destroy, before he himself can embark on conventional family life.

Throughout its eight seasons, Michael C. Hall has been instrumental in causing so much to work well. Viewers could warm to his Dexter, he surely doing the world a favour dispatching major villains who had escaped justice. He, though, becomes his greatest critic - such a lifestyle bringing nothing but grief for those he holds most dear. Out of regard for them, should he not now head for a final kill - himself?

Early seasons were great, but the series wobbled - arguably its lowest spot Season 6 where so much was ludicrous. Adverse reviews caused me for long to steer clear of the final season, but temptation proved too great. Thank goodness I succumbed, this comparatively low key finale refreshing after certain earlier excesses.

(Twelve episodes. Modest bonuses include short features on how siblings Dexter and Debra evolved, we reminded of flamboyant serial killers dealt with en route.)

Dexter was about a journey. The journey of the protagonist, from emotionless monster to fully emotional human being. Each year took him a step forward in that journey, with each experience Dexter got closer to his ultimate goal. By the time season 8 arrived he was pretty much there. At this stage the series could have gone a couple of ways: go for a plot based, crowd pleasing high drama manhunt season going out with a bang, or, explore the character now that his journey to humanity was almost complete. Perhaps bravely, perhaps stupidly, the writers decided to focus on the character. The result is a somewhat unsatisfying weak season that's low on drama. Yet I respect their decision, despite the many negativity reactions to the season, personally I can still appreciate it for what it is. We see Dexter dealing with things emotionally, but not doing a very good job at it. This results is him making stupid decisions, and struggling to stay in control. It makes for frustrating viewing at times, but what else would you expect from someone who is relatively new at this human emotions stuff? Add to that the usual plot holes and leaps of faith, the usual padding in the form of the secondary characters and the end result is something that feels lethargic and unfocused. Moving on from the main body of the season and focusing on Dexter's ultimate fate, I'd say it is tragic and in my opinion a perfect way to end the series. All in all, a very good series, with highs and lows (this season would probably count as one of the lows), but one that as a whole I will look back on with great fondness.

This review contains spoilers and must be taken in context. I have watched all of Dexter's entire box sets from beginning to end, so I can only review S8 as a concluding part to a long running saga. I cannot review this without giving away the plot, or without sounding annoyed, so be warned.

Let's be clear: This season was the last chance for the writers to redeem themselves, to restore the tension, mystery, intrigue and suspense to Dexter and pull everything together in a satisfying concluding act that answered the key question of what happens when Dexter finally gets exposed. The death of a key person at the end of S7 was a perfect trigger for the net to close in on Dexter and for Miami Metro to turn Miami upside down looking for the killer.

The opening two episodes of S8 seemed to be nicely pushing us toward a manhunt with Dexter in the spotlight, with the smart and unflappable Dr. Vogel seemingly teasing Dexter with hints and suspicions. So it seemed that S8 would become a brilliant test of Dexter's ability to deflect suspicion while trying to survive long enough to kill a cruel bad guy.

But then the writers decided not to bother. Instead they brought back Hannah and the pathetic fatal attraction storyline. Then they revealed this season's killer to be a bit-part character who'd only spoke two lines. (At this point it became clear they were making it up as they went along). Then they introduced a possible protege for Dexter (a teenage killer) to teach 'the code'... but then killed him, off-screen, for no reason. Then they killed Vogel, on-screen, for no reason. Then they killed Debs, off-screen, for no reason. Then they killed the sub plots for Angel, Masuka and Quinn by simply abandoning them mid-story and never mentioning them again.
