An excellent season, arguably the best yet - so many of the established cast evolving in sometimes surprising directions. Major tragedy has left Dexter reeling. How to adjust? He realizes only by continuing his quest to remove villains can his life again have meaning - he before long back on his cabin cruiser ("Slice of Life"!), dumping overboard more dismembered victims....

12 50 minute episodes, all superbly crafted and abounding with sly humour, discovery so often seeming inevitable. Outstanding examples? Ep.6 with its black comedy and audacious climax. The final showdown, problems ever mounting - viewers perhaps dreading the season may end as it began - with an appalling loss.

A splendid addition to the fine cast is Lumen, whose tortured past triggers major developments. Dexter's dead dad is still around to advise. Debra, expletives disconcerting, has become protective of her now more vulnerable brother. Dexter's other family relationships come over well - scenes with stepdaughter and stepson occasionally very moving. A particular delight is baby son Harrison, who hopefully has not inherited tendences.

As ever there are the villains, overdue for despatching - it a guilty pleasure to see them at last get their comeuppance.

The bonuses are all interesting (especially how the sounds are added), but the "20 Questions" feature proved fiddly to operate.

On many levels this is a season to applaud, a worthy addition to a remarkable series. Greatest accolade has to be reserved for Michael C. Hall. Really Dexter Morgan should not invite sympathy, he a psychotic killer and all that, but Hall's sensitive portrayal ensures most of us are with him all the way. Great.

This is great, if you've watched the first 4 seasons it renders this review a bit pointless - you're going to want to see more.

So instead of raving about it's brilliance I'd like to put forward a theory.

I'm not a Star Trek fan but i've heard the theory that even numbered films in the franchise are good and odd numbered ones are rubbish, i'm starting to see a similar pattern with Dexter.

I'll make it clear from the off that I don't think any season of Dexter is rubbish - far from it, but so far season's 2 and 4 are the two best seasons and the odd numbered seasons just aren't quite so jaw dropping (but still some of the best stuff on TV)

Brilliant, great cast, both regulars and new. You shouldn't like a serial killer, but you can't help loving Dexter

We just love watching Dexter. Each time he seems to become embroiled with a character and looks like he is in a real sticky situation, somehow he manages to scrape out of it. Have ordered season 6 and can't wait!
