I've never watched any of dexter any good? Might download it all if it is.
Dexter is an absolutely amazing show. The first two seasons were outstanding -- you can't think that Dexter Morgan can get himself into more shit, but he does. I'm patiently awaiting purchasing Season 3 on DVD. I saw about six episodes in, but not past that.
Unfortunately, the books off of which the show is based are not nearly as good. In fact, they're crap -- Showtime took what was a poorly executed but well thought-out concept and turned it into a drama that goes deeper than most and brings forth a character so evil, so emotionless, so understandable that it's impossible not to love him.
What an awful thing to say. You sir, do not understand the mind of Dexter. Dexter only kills guilty people. He does not harm the innocent. Therefore, he would never kill his wife or son(assuming he doesn't die or something). That is what separates him from the other serial killers. I find it disturbing that you would think such a thing is right...Fire2box said:I guess CBS is up to their old tricks of "leaking" episodes for publicity and subscriptions to their showtime channels. I just hope Dexter kills his son, somehow and maybe even rita too.[/b[ Long live the true Bay Harbor Butcher! Keeping our streets clean!

I just found them to be written poorly and immensely cliched. While I appreciated that Lindsay later added in more supernatural elements (what, wasn't the Dark Passenger a deadly deity inside of him or something? I can't remember),
I just never thought that his writing style was really anything to rave about, and the stories felt inaccessible. The show made them a little more realistic, a little mroe easy to grasp onto, and definitely flowed -- as stories -- along smoother stones.
Yeah, it was a child of the god Moloch that takes pleasure in making humans kill each other.
I liked the first book, the second was okay, the third was garbage. Changing Dexter's need to kill from a sinister and malicious part of his psyche in to some demon possessing him was a weak move. The supernatural elements didn't need to be there at all. I agree that the TV show is better - the characters are more nuanced and complex, which is odd. Usually it's the source book that has more complex characters. In the TV series, Deb is actually believable as a cop's daughter turned cop. She actually seems like a real person instead of some caricature. Ditto with the Ice Truck Killer. I won't spoil it for anyone who hasn't read the book/seen the show yet, but those of you who have know what I'm talking about. I haven't read the 4th book yet (out in the UK already, out in North America next month), but if the previous one is any indication, I likely won't bother.
Overall, I preferred the 3rd season to the 2nd, but if the leaked episode is any indication, the 4th may just be the best yet.
