This series makes for compelling viewing, the turn of events leave you having to watch the next episode. It is far better than the first series and the script is much more dramatic and far less predictable. We begin to see the monster inside Dexter as the series progresses. As a viewer we are toyed with and our sympathies shift to different character as Dexter becomes difficult to root for. His mask slips to reveal the dangerous psychotic coming apart at the seams. I see Dexter as more of a soap opera than a real dramatic serial to be taken seriously, it is not something I imagined myself liking. Dexter has plot holes galore and is greatly overshadowed by truly great and well written series such as The Sopranos, The Wire and Breaking Bad but for simple entertainment is is fun and has a great 'watchability' factor.
