[first lines]
Dexter Morgan: I've never had much use for the concept of Hell, but if Hell exists, I'm in it. The same images running through my head, over and over.
[He remembers horrific images]
Dexter Morgan: I was there. I saw my mother's death. A buried memory, forgotten all these years. They climbed inside me that day. And it's been with me ever since. My dark passenger.

DEXTER- Micheal C Hall is awesome!
23 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Micheal C Hall is an outstanding actor in his new role as DEXTER. I never miss this series, DEXTER when it comes on SHOWTIME. Hall was just super in 6 Feet Under, but in Dexter, Micheal C Hall has truly captured the personality of Dexter with humor, pathos and skillful acting. Everyone who are cast members on this series, Dexter, is perfect for their roles. When selecting the cast members, in such a talented way, one can only get a fantastic cast of actors, that I do not even think I am watching a series??? This series, Dexter n its entire team of entertainment people n actors are superb, I cannot say enough. The very FACT that I forget that I am watching an episode of Dexter, I am swooped into the world of Micheal C Hall's outstanding performance, I just love him! As Dexter, Micheal C Hall is so lovable, even tho' he has to take the trash out! have u seen Dexter when he shows his humor, and goofs? totally super n hilarious! What an actor Micheal C Hall is. I hope he will win the Golden Globe award!!!!!!!!!! I hope DEXTER will go on as long as 6 Feet Under! I am a huge fan of Micheal C Hall!
