Goofs

About the middle of the episode Jeremy Downs is shown exiting "HALFWAY HOUSE". He's got a strange sweat pattern on his boxer shirt for his type of body. Only overweight people sweat so much around their necks. And only overweight people sweat so much without running or doing exercises. See more »

Quotes

Dexter Morgan: [voiceover] Most people have a hard time dealing with death, but I'm not most people. It's the grief that makes me uncomfortable. Not because I'm a killer, really. I just don't understand all that emotion, which makes it tough to fake.
[putting on sun glasses]
Dexter Morgan: In those cases, shades come in handy.

Enticing!
14 August 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The third episode of season 1, "Popping Cherry" has less action, but more character development which is always good. We see Dexter from his humble beginnings as he commits his first kill, whom was a nurse who he believed was poisoning his foster father. I was fascinated by this scene and I was wondering the first few episodes if we were going to see this.

This episode has Dexter going after a teenage murderer who was paroled, his sister Debra believes that "The Ice Truck Killer" is not the person they are going for, Rita has her car stolen by her ex-husband's criminal associate, and Sgt. Doakes is going after a drugpin the hard way.

Overall, this is an excellent episode with some very interesting moments. I liked how we learn more about Dexter. The action may have ceased, but not my level of interest. I rate this episode 9/10.
