Dexter



















I am so late to the party here. Now, I had heard how awesome and addicting this show was, but I had so many other thiings to watch that this got pushed to the back for the time being. Over the years, I kept hearing nothing but good things and I would always excuse myself and move on due to spoilers. I'm coming into this one with no knowledge of any storylines or actors or actresses involved.

As for the Pilot episode: Dexter, I immediately got why it's so popular and well received among fans. The actor and writing was pretty sharp. I wasn't expecting a VO narration of the main character Dexter (Michael C. Hall). But it makes sense that there would be one because we are after all, following a Serial Killer and we need to have his inner monologue so that we can better understand what makes him tick, as f ucked up as that may be.

There's plenty of interesting things going on here from the flashback scenes with his father Harry (James Remar), who basically try's to help him curtail his urges. But when that doesn't work, he convinces himself and Dex that if he needs to act out on these urges, then better to "put them to good use" on bad, corrupt people. Other things that I found interesting was his relationship to his half-sister Deb (Jennifer Carpenter) and his girlfriend Rita (Julie Benz), who I have been a fan of since Angel and most recently No Ordinary Family. Also, it was cool to see Lauren Vélez who plays Lt. María LaGuerta. I haven't seen her in anything since Oz went off the air.

This is gonna be a interesting series for me. Looking forward to seeing how Season 1 plays out. I will vote in the Poll at the completion of this set.
