Good, fun episode, not quite the masterwork of the pilot
21 February 2011 | by See all my reviews

Dexter's second episode, "Crocodile" is a good continuation on from "Dexter", fleshing out the characters more and providing more insight into Dexter's past. One thing I forgot to mention in my pilot review is how BRILLIANT James Remar is as Dexter's deceased surrogate father, Harry. As the one who taught Dexter how to survive with his murderous urges, Harry is a critical character despite his death. Remar makes him the moral center of the show, supplying the reasons behind Dexter's MO. The Ice Truck Killer story continues, but no clues as to who it is yet. I was going to give this a 7, but the brilliant flashback scenes, as well as the perfectly staged (as always) kill room scene, pushes this up to an 8.
