Meet Dexter Morgan. By day he's a blood spatter pattern expert for the Miami Metro police department. But by night - he takes on an entirely different persona: serial killer. But Dexter isn't your average serial killer as he only kills people who fit a very prolific and precise "moral code" taught to him by his late father Harry (he didn't kill Harry, honest), and developed very thoroughly throughout each kill. While dealing with his daily activities and his boss, Sgt. Doakes, the one man who may or may not know the truth about his after-hours activities, he is given a friendly message by a guy referred to only as "The Ice Truck Killer" - a crime scene where there is no blood. This shocking discovery turns Dexter's world completely upside down. The Ice Truck Killer wants Dexter to play his game and Dexter is very eager to take on this cat-and-mouse chase throughout Miami.

The names Dexter Morgan and Debra Morgan refer to the two laws of De Morgan - valid rules of inference in propositional logic. Informally, the laws are "not (A and B) is the same as (not A) or (not B)" and "not (A or B) is the same as (not A) and (not B)". They describe their mentality towards the existence of each other: Neither Debra nor Dexter can live without the other. Both characters express that several times throughout the series. See more »
Visible throughout the first season, Dexter has a large scar on his left side. Later, in season two, the scar has moved to his right side, leaving his left side unmarked. See more »
Dexter, a forensics expert at day, serial killer with a touch of vigilantism at night. Dexter is creating a believable and very detailed portrait of a, lets say troubled, sociopath. One of the parts about the show I like best is the emotions that normal people exhibit, thus forcing Dexter to mimic them. Good laugh when the emotions Dexter fake get real, and he is scared out of his mind, like in the relationship with his "girlfriend" Rita, mother of two and victim of her abusive ex-boyfriend. Also liked the acting of Jennifer Carpenter as Dexter's sister Debra, adds a nice touch colour to the show, without drifting into clichés.
Thrilling story, many details, and one of the best opening sequences ever.
