Goofs

When Dexter's browsing the reports about Matt Chambers' past DUI infringements, the last page shows the title of an article in South Boston Daily claiming "Matt Rasmussen of South Boston Arrested" though the rest of the article is about Matt Brewster - a name used in Albuquerque. The article is identical to the previous one in Albuquerque Times Standard except for the first couple of words. See more »

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.
