If no one has ever watched this show, your really missing out! For those that do watch the show, by now you know that you probably relate yourself to Dexter in a lot of ways.
The show is about a psychopathic man who has an irresistible urge to kill. Growing up, he has learned, with the gracious help of his loving father, not only how to kill people and get away with it, but his father has also taught him the arts of blending in with society in as normal a fashion as possible. Your probably asking, "how the hell do people relate themselves to this guy?", just sit tight and listen.
The show appears to be a series of murder mysteries at first glance, but dive deeper into the show and you realize that the show is actually about the psychological developments Dexter makes as he grows and experiences "new" and "exciting" events in his unusual, "normal" lifestyle. The writers of the show has portrayed Dexter as an outcast from the rest of society, never being able to completely show his true identity without the risk of complete abandonment. As the show goes on, however, Dexter finds new and innovating ways to blend in his public and private identity to form a manageable mix.
Now, for anyone feeling rather alone out there, or wondering how you are going to cope with society in how you truly feel, this show is for you. I myself have learned a thing or two as far as concepts go for blending in my "diapered life" with my public life.
Dexter has become almost like a friend -no, a mentor- to me. When I watch, I feel like we are in the same learning experience together and whatever happens we will overcome... that is, at least, until we can't overcome it .
In conclusion, the show is much more than a series of murder mysteries - even though the murder mysteries are interesting themselves. Definitely an addictive show and (as a slight warning) make sure you have time on your hands to watch several shows in a row, because its one of those shows you can't just watch one of.
