Editorial Reviews

Dexter(TM) is a crime drama about Dexter Morgan, a man who leads a double life as an incredibly likeable forensics expert for the Miami Police Department and as an emotionless vigilante serial killer. Taught by his foster father to harness his lust for blood and killing, Dexter lives by his own strict moral code - he only kills murderers who can't otherwise be brought to justice. Dexter is a killer who grapples with fitting into society while, at the same time, he struggles with his inability to feel emotion. The irony of Dexter's life is that he works closely as a blood splatter analyst with the very people who hunt his kind - the homicide departments.

This is an honest review for the person who is actually considering buying season 8 and has presumably seen one or more previous seasons. (no one starts on the final season, do they?) With a couple minor exceptions, I won't spoil anything.

It seems many of the other reviews have taken issue with the plot; love it or hate it. I'm here to tell you, it's irrelevant. Why? An implausible or unrealistic plot will always be trumped by character development. If the characters are believable, likeable, captivating, and have chemistry with one another, the show will be fun to watch, irrespective of the plot. Imagine this for a plot line: "Protagonist serial killer rescues stepsister after she falls in love with doctor who is also a serial killer and protagonist's brother." Plausible? Not a chance. But it doesn't matter- everyone agrees, season 1 was one of the most enjoyable to watch. It was all because of the characters. Great characters make the story captivating regardless of how far fetched the plot is.

So why do the characters fail so miserably in season 8? Very simply put- poor writing. There is no depth to the characters anymore as they have become flat, one dimensional caricatures. In the early seasons the players were complex and mysterious. Remember how you weren't sure who to root for in the LaGuerta/Matthews psychological battles? Dexter vs Doakes? Did you find yourself asking, "why am I rooting for the bad guy?" Well, that's the mark of excellent writing; the ability of the writer to toy with your emotions, to make you doubt your pre conceptions, to make you "feel." This level of engaging writing was non-existent in season 8.

Ironically, the only character who seems to become more complex in season 8 was Dexter. And this is not necessarily a good thing.

I would have given this last season of Dexter one star, but out of respect for the series as a whole, I gave it two. I loved this series! I watched faithfully and never missed an episode. And when I heard this was the last season, I was so hoping that the writers would come up with a spectacular ending (not necessarily happy, but something suitably jaw dropping). What a disappointment!! This season (to put it in a word) STUNK! The pace was unbelievably slow and monotonous; you thought, surely, surely, the writers were just building up to a grand finale - but then the finale came and it was not grand, or jaw dropping.

The writing was weak, the interaction between the characters was weak. It was like the writers just gave up and went on auto-pilot. The bad guy of the season, the Brain Surgeon, should have been Dexter's greatest challenge - ending with an antagonist that he either couldn't beat, or gave his life trying to beat (which would have been a great ending). But the Brain Surgeon wasn't scary, wasn't a great challenge, and really did nothing for the character development of Dexter. While the writers were trying to tie up all the loose ends, they brought back Hannah (a decision by the writers I thought questionable), but then did nothing interesting with her character. They killed off Deborah - in a most unspectacular, ho-hum way. And the final straw was the ending...Dexter as lumberjack, WTH?!

I could go on and on about how bad this season was. Short story is, the writers took a brilliant series and butchered, just butchered, the ending. It was so bad, I'm not even going to purchase this season on Blu-ray (I have purchased every other season)...I'm just going to pretend that this season never happened.

This season was definitely disappointing, note there will be SPOILERS!

What makes this season a dud, is for a series finale it lacks the conviction to focus and conclude the characters story in a meaningful way, it was wrought with silly story tangents that didn't really add much depth and only wasted time to conclude the story or add character depth to the primary characters.

The driving underlying conflict was never about the serial killers, that was a typical formula that all crime series always conclude, the bad guy gets caught or dies. But the primary conflict that this series had never addressed, only with Deb and Sgt. Doax was Dexter's hidden life and the tension of it being revealed. Instead Season 8 revolves too much on the brain surgeon killer story which probably happens to be the most uninteresting killer ever. He isn't even revealed until near the end of the season, which creates a bland killer that really never had any interesting character development to him, the way the Ice truck or Trinity Killer did in previous seasons.

Then the addition of Zack, Dexter's possible pupil was cut short, when he was killed, I actually thought that could have been a plausible story line to grow on, again just wastes time to develop and conclude the older characters. Dr. Vougel is an interesting character, she adds depths to Dexter's origin as the author of the code which he always thought was from Harry. But midway in the story her irrational maternal instincts to save her lost son who happens to be the brain surgeon, ends up costing her life, again another story plot that just wastes time which should have been all focused on Dexter's instead.
