What can I say? In the beginning I wasn’t a fan of the Showtime hit drama series Dexter, but the moment I saw the first 5 minutes of season 1, episode 1, I was hooked.
Dexter Morgan played by the talented and creative Michael C. Hall tells the story about a Miami Metro Homicide Blood Spatter Analyst, that just so happens to be a notorious serial killer.
This has truly been the summer of Dexter for me and my husband as we are now caught up on the series, thanks to On Demand.
What can I say? Dexter has been through a lot since he was 3, witnessing his mother’s murder, started his killing rampage at a very young age.
Clearly disturbed, he manages to lead somewhat of a normal life in the day, and once night falls his “Dark Passenger” lives vicariously though him as he kills only people that meet the criteria of his code.
What is it about Dexter that is so darn appealing? As I watch the final season?, I just can’t answer that in one word, but there is something about him that is very likable, and intriguing. He is honest with himself, and is fully aware that is he is a “monster,” but I think for me, it is his humor, mysteriousness, and quirky behavior that draws me into him as a character.
Based on the bestselling book Darkly Dreaming Dexter, I started reading the first book and found myself comparing the book to the show. It’s nice to know that the writers at Showtime are pretty much staying true to the author Jeff Lindsey’s work.
The show is a masterpiece and I can’t believe this may be the final season.
Happy Viewing
