This show took some terrible books with a great concept and made them interesting stories. The characters in the TV show are more fully developed. (In the book only Dexter is more than one dimensional).

Jennifer Carpenter's Debra is hilarious and moving. She did a good job of playing her foul mouth in a way that added colour to her character without making her too off putting. She was believably tough and believably vulnerable. I never felt angry at her character for protecting her brother when she learned his secret.

Michael C. Hall actually manages to make a serial killer someone you are rooting for. Almost until the end.

This is one of my top 10 favorite shows and that is something to say when you have watched over 200. The writing and execution of this series is phenomenal. The idea itself is genius. This criminal drama has a touch of horror, grit kind of bad ass feel. The fact that we're involved in Dexter's thoughts makes you feel like you are in the show. The first couple seasons deserve more than one viewing. I recommend this show for anyone who has ever turned on a television.

THEY BETTER MAKE A SEQUAL TO DEXTER.

with dexters kid growing up and trying to discover who his dad was, but fighting urges to kill just like he struggled, and have dexter be spying on him the whole time until its time Dexter teaches him the proper ways to kill.

OHH THE IDEA GIVES ME GOOSEBUMPS!!!

Oh how much did i like Dexter ! It was crazy good.
The writers and Michael Hall were capable of turning our minds inside out.

... and then... well then the magic was gone and everyone is writing about that terrible finale... I gave up 4 or 5 episodes before the end. I don't know what they are talking about and truly none should care.

Juste watch until you get bored with it. apparently, as long as you don't watch the finale, you are good :D

One of the best show's ever to be on Showtime. Michael C Hall manages to make you care so much for someone who does unspeakable things! Shame about the last 30 mins of the final which kind of ruined the show.

Great show! That being said, there are two things to mention. First - season 6 was by far the best and the smartest season of any show EVER. Second - the ending of the series sucked so much, that it can only be compared to the ending of How I met your mother.

The first season was fantastic but unfortunately also when it peaked. Every season after that was worse than the next. The series finale was one of the worst endings to a show I've ever seen.

our favorite serial killer! In short: follows the life of Dexter who by day is a blood anylizer for Miami PD and by night is a serial killer, whats the catch? (besides that he's a cop who commits murder) he only kills bad guys. Don't want to put any spoilers - i'll just say - give the series a chance and watch a few episodes of the first season - you'll thank me later! :)
