Editorial Reviews

Dexter is back and more killer than ever. The Emmy-nominated Showtime Original Series (Best Drama Series, Lead Actor in a Drama Series) returns for an all-new season – and this time Dexter’s got a new take on taking life. Having faced some of his darkest demons, Dexter’s ready to put the past behind him. Now, with family life, a day job catching killers and an uncontrollable urge to do away with the ones that get away, Dexter’s got his work cut out for him. And when a high-profile case sides him with powerful Assistant DA Miguel Prado (special guest star Jimmy Smits), the pressure might be too great for even our beloved Dexter to hack.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another killer season December 14, 2008
Format:DVD
"Dexter" never disappoints! As a big fan of the show, I was concerned how Season 3 would play out now that one of my favorite characters, James Doakes, is out of the picture. I never should have worried, because the third season of "Dexter" was just as fabulous as the first two. This season mainly focuses on Dexter's (Michael C. Hall) personal relationships. He's working through some major issues with his deceased father, Harry (James Remar), and his relationship with Rita (Julie Benz) takes a surprising turn when she announces that she's pregnant with Dexter's child. All of these emotions cause Dexter to turn to an unlikely person...Assistant District Attorney Miguel Prado (Jimmy Smits), who takes a liking to Dexter and makes it his personal mission to become Dexter's BFF. No one is more surprised by this than Dexter, who discovers that he has more in common with Miguel than he possibly imagined. For the first time in his life, Dexter has a friend whom he can rely on and share (some) of his dirty little secrets with. After a while, however, Dexter realizes that there's much more to Miguel than he originally thought, and decides that the ADA may not be BFF material after all.

This is a great season chock full of twists, turns, and excitement. In addition to Dexter's storyline, there are great subplots involving a new serial killer ("The Skinner"), Deborah's (Jennifer Carpenter) relationship with a CI, Angel's (David Zayas) recovery from his divorce, and Maria's (Lauren Velez) coping with the death of her former partner in Season 2. I am always impressed by the way this series constantly surprises its audience and keeps evolving these dynamic characters.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Different Kind of CSI December 16, 2008
I finally took advantage of getting what I pay for with my cable company. Prior to Season 3 of Dexter, I watched the first two seasons on DVD (Season One & Season Two). I used to send all this money to my cable company for subscribing to Showtime, and Dexter was never part of my regular TV viewing until 2008. Color me stupid. What was I missing out on?...Only the absolute best show on TV.

How good is it? Let's put it this way...I'm actually glad that I hadn't seen this until DVD, because my wife and I were able to watch the first two seasons in weeks versus like 3 months PER regular season on Showtime. We often watched three episodes in one night on the DVD sets. Alas, I couldn't wait for Season 3's release on DVD, so it was one episode of Dexter, one week at a time for Season 3.

So certainly one of the good things about Dexter on DVD is that you don't need to wait 12 weeks to see a season from start to finish. But certainly the best thing about the series is how well done it is.

Dexter (played by Michael C. Hall of HBO's Six Feet Under fame) is a blood spatter analyst with Miami Homicide. It's his job to help solve murders, and he also happens to moonlight as a serial killer....Just a side note that last part.

The acting in the show is terrific, and the thrills and twists are plentiful. Combine the nature of Dexter's professional life with his favorite pass-time, and you can bet your carotid artery that there's plenty of blood in the show too. But rest assured that the show isn't just about killing.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best Season Yet. Serially August 14, 2009
By T. Goul
Season 1 was harrowing and chilling. Season 2 was tense and dramatic. Season 3 has it all. It seems the writers (bless 'em) really hit their stride in this season. Everyone gets their spotlight, and everyone shines like stainless steel in a hard spotlight. I cannot enthuse enough about this season of the series. If you haven't seen any Dexter, don't start here. You'll miss the nuances of character development. If you've been following Dexter you WILL find yourself captivated like you were on the slab in one of his killing rooms. I will not give away any plot points. Suffice to say that everyone from the directors to the actors to the writers have stepped up and delivered an epic plot arc. This is my favorite season thus far, which is a strong statement when considering how amazing the 1st season was. I cannot wait to see where Dexter and company go from here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dexter, Part 3 March 8, 2009
Format:DVD
Dexter is, hands down, the most brilliantly written television series I have ever watched. The pacing is downright perfection, the story telling and weaving is an absolute powerhouse of entertainment. Plus, the dialogue is nothing short of utterly amazing.

The cast is something that award shows lust for. Michael C. Hall was always brilliant on Six Feet Under - The Complete Series Gift Set. Since episode one he has proven that he can make a totally different character (than the interally conflicted gay brother who owns a funeral home w/his family.) He truly is an actor in the caliber of DeNiro or Nicholson, in my opinion.

The rest of the cast is amazing too. Jennifer Carpenter Quarantine (+ BD Live) [Blu-ray] is often called the weak link (by my wife and almost every woman I know for some reason,) however I disagree, she's just as brilliant in her internal conflicts than everyone else. She's often the conscience in Dexter's mind when there is none otherwise. That's not to say Dexter doesn't have morals, but there are certain things that his sister points out which seems like a light bulb goes off in the Dexter's head.

Jimmy Smits in any TV show seems to improve it by a factor of three. This series didn't need it so much, but he's a very welcome addition. In fact, I compared the 'Donut Shop Scene' in this season to the DeNiro/Pacino coffee shop scene in Heat (Two-Disc Special Edition).

This season is full of twists and turns which come like an 18 wheeler truck from out of nowhere.

I love this series and plan to buy all the seasons...they are really good. Sharing them with family as well.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dexter is My Second Favorite (Breaking Bad) of all time.
This rating is for the whole series. Excellent! I am less than enthralled with how season 8 ended up in some respects (in others, it was great) but a terrific series.

So I re-ordered them from Amazon. I need all seasons because once you start watching "Dexter", you really cannot stop so I have my own little marathons.

When does Dexter Season 3 come out on DVD?
I think it will be in August considering that was when Season 1 & 2 both came out on DVD last year and the year before... Last year was August 19th.

After a few years, I bit the bullet and spent $45 on a new dvd player and gave my expensive non-cc player to a "hearing" friend.

Dexter & Prison Break: BD 1st and 3rd seasons, why no 2nd?
For some reason, Dexter: Season Two (Blu-ray) does not show up in searches on Amazon, but I found the link through an external site. Scheduled for release on May 5.
