Goofs

Dr. Meridian is described as a psychiatrist, and his clients ask him for prescriptions. When Dexter finds his name in the victim's files, he's listed as "Emmett Meridian, PhD." Psychiatrists are MD's; a PhD would make Meridian a psychologist, and unable to prescribe medication. See more »

Dexter Morgan: You want there to be a next time?
Rita Bennett: And a time after that!

Is Dexter Rewatchable? Hell Yes!!!
18 May 2011 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

I am re-watching Dexter after watching all five seasons recently and am now waiting for the sixth to start. I'll even subscribe to Showtime so that I don't have to miss an episode of the new season. I must say that I barely thought of Michael C. Hall as handsome or a better than average actor when I was watching "Six Feet Under," but on this show he is throughly present and I am blissfully aware he's unusually cute/handsome.

I find myself addicted to this show and would really love it if they had him do more shirt off/sex scenes....(I also love that kill shirt he wears) anyway, back to the episode. Wow, the writing's great, the acting's great. I was riveted all the way through. Really loved seeing "Ghosts" Tony Goldwyn in the epi, he did a fantastic job as the psychiatrist.

I really do love anytime Dexter has a breakthrough toward becoming more of an emotional human being and learning to understand and perhaps control his "dark passenger.' For me his humor balances out all the gore and blood. I just hope they can keep the premise from getting monotonous.
