Oh Dexter, *sigh* what can I say about Dexter? Lots! Michael C. Hall was the perfect choice to play our favorite Blood Spatter Analyst/Serial Killer, I truly could not see anyone else pulling this off. I've never been so sad to see a show come to its end. As an avid fan of the ID channel, and other true crime documentaries, this show was the perfect mixture of "could totally happen" and "yeah right!". I don't watch many series but this one immediately drew me in and would not let go. After the very first episode I knew I had been completely slain by Dexter, pun intended. There are so many complex and fascinating characters in this series. Since I don't want to include spoilers I'll just skim them, Debra, Dexter's sister pretty much has every conceivable tragedy you could possibly imagine thrown into her lap throughout the series, yet always seems to come out the other side of it....almost. Her tough as nails, foul mouthed demeanor is exactly the kind of female protagonist that keeps me intrigued in any story. Rita, Dexter's other half as of season two is a little on the meeker side, and a lot stronger than she gives herself credit for, I will only say not to let yourself fall too much in love with her. From Dexter's tough but soft hearted superior Angel, to his zany and decidedly perverted, yet lovable colleague, and his cute as a button little boy Harrison, there aren't too many disappointing characters to be seen here. I would say my biggest disappointment in the whole series was the end, the finale completely went way off into left field and left most fans clutching their remotes, holding a Kleenex, and saying "no, no, no".....repeatedly. *sigh*. I guess they can't please everyone, but that's one ending that left quite a bit to be desired, did he really dump her into the harbor!? Aye. All I can do is shake my head and convince myself that the show didn't really end, it's just on hiatus, and the powers that be didn't really do that to us.
All of this being said, you NEED to watch Dexter! From its beautifully done, genius beginning, to its Kleenex wringing, frustrating end! That is all.
