Crocodile Rock!
13 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The second episode in this series, "Crocodile", is a high-quality one. It brings the level of high energy from the pilot and transfers it here nicely. The voice over narration by Dexter is still chilling and beholding. There are several subplots here to keep us hooked and all-in-all, it reaches the quality of the pilot story-wise and acting-wise.

This episode is about Dexter who has been contacted personally by a serial murderer and is playing head games with him. Meanwhile, his sister is promoted to Homicide, Dexter has a problem with Matt Chambers who killed someone drinking and driving, and a cop has been killed by a drug lord.

Overall, this is a great episode that will keep you hooked. This is an interesting series and I like how they play these shows out. This is high-quality television right here. I rate this episode 9/10.
