It’s a hard accomplishment to get someone to actually love a serialkiller. But Dexter is one of those few attempts that works. It’s notforced upon you- the show doesn’t shove the whole “well this serialkiller had a terrible childhood…” in your face. And it doesn’t needto in order to get you to love its main character. You just do.
Michael C. Hall can play any emotion he’s handed. Jennifer Carpenterfits her character perfectly, as does everyone else in the cast.
Then there’s the actual story lines. It’s not cliché. It’s actuallyscary and chilling. It keeps you guessing. It’s one of those mysteriesthat is very difficult to solve, but it still keeps your interest.
‘Dexter’ can also be hilarious when it wants to be, depressing when itwants to be and especially thrilling when it wants to be. And itdoesn’t come across as trying too hard.
Strong writing, clever dialogue, talented stars. It all makes for awonderful TV show. Definitely the best new show of the season and willbecome one of the best shows of all time.
