Storyline

In Miami, the orphan Dexter is raised by detective Harry Morgan, who discovers that his foster son has the urge to kill. Harry directs the impulse of the boy to kill bad people, teaching him how to operate without leaving any trace. After Harry's death, Dexter works in the forensic department of the Miami Police Department, where his step sister, Debra, works in the Vice and Narcotics Unit. During his free nights, Dexter leads a double-life, chasing and killing murderers and collecting samples of their blood, or dating Rita Bennett. After executing a pedophile and a rapist (who have killed their victims), Dexter investigates an intriguing serial killer that drains the blood and freezes the severed bodies of his victims. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Quotes

Dexter Morgan: [first lines]
Dexter Morgan: Tonight's the night. It's going to happen again and again. Has to happen. Nice night. Miami is a great town. I love the Cuban food and pork sandwhiches, my favorite. But I'm hungry for something different, now.

Takes life! Seriously!
4 June 2009 | by (Estonia) – See all my reviews

I'm not much television person. I'd rather go to cinema or rent a DVD but I don't watch many television series on TV(there are some exceptions like "Six Feet Under", "Californication" and "X-Files"). I've heard a lot of good about Dexter and how great is Michael C Hall in the role of sociopath serial killer and crime genius. I also enjoyed him in Six Feet Under. It's too bad he has so few roles in movies.

So I finally had chance to see the first episode of Dexter. The first episode was promising. And I have to say that I'm now forced to purchase a Dexter's DVD set.

I started to feel sympathy against Michael C Hall's Dexter Morgan. With television shows it happens rarely with me that I fell into a character.

I hope the next episodes only raise my ardor and I will stay the fan of the series.
