Storyline

Dexter Morgan, Miami Metro Police Department blood spatter analyst, has a double life. When he's not helping the Homicide division solving murders, he spends his time hunting and killing bad guys that slip through the justice system. He spends his sun-drenched days solving crimes - and moonlit nights committing them. But not to worry, our Dexter doesn't kill just anyone. He reserves his homicidal hobbies to taking only the lives of other killers. Written by ahmetkozan

Rita Bennett: [softly] Easier said than done.

Dexter is clever, chilling and devastatingly charming
13 September 2020 | by cbrookebartonSee all my reviews

I'm here in 2020 to remind everyone to watch Dexter at least once in their lives. There are very few shows I circle back to once I've experienced the conclusion, but I still cannot get enough of Dexter. Every time through I experience another "oh damn" moment that I didn't catch the first time around. This keeps me in constant fascination of how brilliantly woven and expertly portrayed this story is. The writing is superb and you will never get ahead of the twists and turns.

Did you ever think you'd have empathy for a serial killer? Me either...

Watch it. Trust me.
