Are you noticing a theme with these posts? Clearly I'm obsessed with TV shows.
My latest obsession is the TV show Dexter!
If you've never heard of Dexter, I'll give you a little background. Dexter is a show on Showtime. There are currently 7 seasons with 12 episodes each season. June 30 begins the 8th season of Dexter and most likely, the last season. Dexter, himself, is a very lovable serial killer. He works as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami Metro homicide department and when he's not working he hunts down serial killers and kills them. Other members of the cast include his sister, Debra, his girlfriend, Rita, and other members of the police force.
The cast is definitely what makes this show so awesome. Michael C. Hall as Dexter is brilliant. I wasn't sure what to think about him for the first few episodes but I quickly came to love him. He's definitely very messed up and kind of creepy but I think a lot of people will still like him. He is a good guy at heart. Then there is Deb who is probably my favorite character ever. She is blunt, she cusses a lot, and she's kind of crazy but those are all things that make her awesome. She's smart and funny as well and I loved seeing her progression throughout the series. The rest of the Miami Metro homicide department is also pretty great. There's Vince Masuka who is totally perverted but so funny. Angel Batista is sweet and kind of awkward and he quickly became a favorite of mine. Lieutenant LaGuerta wasn't that great at first but she grew on me. There are some more cast members introduced throughout the series but these are my favorites.
The plot is always crazy. Each season there is a new serial killer that is the focus of the Miami Metro Homicide Department's investigation. Of course, the same serial killer is usually the focus of Dexter's own personal manhunt as well. The serial killers get progressively creepier as the show goes on and I loved that.
I'm not really squeamish or scared easily when it comes to things like this so I never had problems with this show but obviously I wouldn't really recommend it for people who don't like blood or murder. It's not my normal type of show but I'm so glad I finally decided to watch it.
Do you watch Dexter? What do you think of it?
