DEXTER - Season 7 finale'd! Spoiler for those who haven't caught up. 1 season left!
Miami's favorite serial killer / Blood Splatter analyst.
Masuka's my personal favorite character.
Who else watchs/enjoys the show?
Season 7 finale was Dec 16, 2012. Final season TBD.
The show is pretty contrived though.
Everyone has access to Netflix for a fairly minimal amount, though.
oh okay, there we go

This will spoil the entire first season for you though, so only look if you don't particularly care.
So fast forward to modern day, there's a serial killer on the loose. Dexter's sister (also a cop) starts dating some dude.
Turns out her boyfriend is the serial killer and... HE'S DEXTER'S LONG LOST BROTHER THAT IS NOW ALSO A SERIAL KILLER.
The most horrible, tritest shit I've ever seen. I mean, I just reread my post and I laughed because it's so bad.
Tho I agree the show is off and on. Its a bit too perfect, and not really as deep as it should be. Still fun though.
They should have got some HBO dude on that ish.
although (end of season 2 spoiler)
but damn if this show doesn't have great acting and clever writing that keeps it incredibly entertaining
I'm hoping that they'll just take off with it in a new direction now that they've ditched the book series it was based on entirely. Season 1 was mostly a direct adaptation, Season 2 added it's own elements but still kept some of the major plot points, and now Season 3 is just ignoring the awful third book all together. They have some great characters to work with if they decided to get someone to write a decent story arc.
this show is a must watch
thank god in heaven they don't seem to be following the book's plots after the first season.
does it get any less obvious or bowel-clenchingly boring
did they save all the good stuff for episode 5
Man, its the first good episode.
And every episode after that is twice as good as the one before it.
if it sucks though, if this is some 'make bonk watch bad tv' practical joke, i swear to god
edit: fixed spoiler, whoooops.
The previews I saw made it look like he's a pretty hardcore dude versus Dexter.
bullshit with doakes is over
well, here's some book vs. series clarifications on why it ended up like it did
And as far as the lame brother thing in Season 1, it played out a lot better in the book. There was this whole conflict about the brother heavily resembling Dexter, and Dexter thinking that he might be the ice truck killer, and I don't know it just made more sense. The show kind of established their relationship differently and then at the end was like "AHA, THEY'RE BROTHERS!" but at that point it didn't even matter and really did nothing for either character.
tl;dr blame the bad plot points on the books, and they really could have been worse if they stuck with Jeff Lindsay's crappy fantasy plot.
Good to know.
I'll still borrow it from the library.
I don't know, the first one was pretty entertaining despite the cheesiness that I already knew about from the show
I didn't read the 2nd or 3rd though, the plot summaries and peoples warnings were enough to keep me away from them
