---Without spoiling anything plot related here is a quick synopsis for anyone looking for a good reason to watch this.---
An adopted child from a young age, Dexter and his sister grew up with their loving foster father, who also happened to be an accomplished detective. His father, being a cop and all, sensed something different about Dexter, his desire to hurt things, small animals, ect, his detachment from the world, and lack of emotion toward anything. A smart detective, he recognized this for it was, that his son was heading down the road of a murderer. He does what any loving father would do of course... teach his son everything he knows, and how to get away with it. Realizing that Dexter's path would lead him only to the electric chair, he can't bear to see his son die in this way. So he give him a 'code' with which to kill by. To only go after the scum of the earth. The murderers, the rapists, the child molestors, the one's that slip through the cracks of a flawed 'justice system'. This code Dexter strives to live by, it feeds his insatiable desire to kill, and honors his father's wishes.
Dexter is a fantastic show that twists your perception of morality, and begs questions of your mind like, can you like this person? Very well written, with convincing narrative and great acting from a nobody cast that you come to know well helps its case. Be aware that this show is run on Showtime, and therefore is not bound by the heavy censoring of regular cable television.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
Many opposed this shows' initial airing without seeing a single episode, deeming it inappropriate for public broadcast after reading some early reviews regarding its' content. With that in mind, I watched (keeping a non-biased equilibrium), and personally found the berated show to be quite the contrary.
Dexter is well-produced, incorporating an immaculate cast, great story arcs, dialogue, and camera work that actually surpasses most traditional "cop investigation" offerings currently loved and watched by millions. In my opinion, Dexter is one of the best productions available on the tube... complete with all the drama, suspense, and story twists we expect from modern day television writers, and more! Its' theme song alone is so distinctive, you don't even need to be in the same room to hear it and know what program is on.
We're talking about a momentum-induced series, ready to begin its' 6th season. They are obviously doing something right at the studio to maintain a continued contract. Regardless of the subject matter (cop code vs. serial killer code), this is SO well-made that most viewers I queried said they were hooked after the premiere episode. I was as well. It wasn't what I expected at all, and I misjudged it prematurely. My bad! Dexter now ranks among my favorites. Can't wait for the next season to begin.
This is a super package deal for Seasons 1-3. I highly recommend it to Dexter fans and curious buyers alike. Naturally, Amazon prices fluctuate regularly, so just be patient and check for best value. Purchased it myself when it was released, and worth every penny. Happy shopping!

My sister got me Seasons 1 and 2 on DVD for Christmas. There are no subtitles. There is only closed captioning, if you have a TV set that renders closed captioning. I can't speak for seasons 3 and 4.
