This one (#6) is as great as the previous seasons...They are ALL 5 STARS SO FAR!

So, putting the finale in the preview of the content I *just* bought along with other shows they may or may not care about and making it unskippable is beyond stupid.

Love this show and how they keep it going and keep it exciting, I will never understand -- but I will love every minute of it -- and do!

This is probably the best season of dexter I've watched besides season 4. The storylines are varied and it felt very fresh. I would recommend anyone that's a fan watch this season. With that being said, don't buy this product.

The only problem is that showtime decided to spoil the ending to the season in the unskippable preview at the start of the DVD. How anyone with a brain decided this was a good plan is beyond me. The only logical conclusion is that no one at showtime possesses any brain whatsoever.

Here's a note about your fans, Showtime. Not all of them subscribe to your channel. So, putting the finale in the preview of the content I *just* bought along with other shows they may or may not care about and making it unskippable is beyond stupid.

I should've read the reviews, since many people seem to have noticed this as well. But, I didn't think I needed to since I was already convinced I was going to buy this product.

I won't be buying any more of these products. Six stars for the season, one star for this release of it.

I'll find other means to watch this show in the future. You've lost a paying fan.

My husband and I are both huge fans of Dexter. We pre-ordered the DVDs for this season as soon as we were able.

Unfortunately, we were not able to enjoy this season. When you insert each of the 4 DVDs in this box set, you are forced to watch a 2 minute ad for Showtime. You are not able to skip the ad on any of the DVDs, and are forced to sit through it as it displays a number of Showtime shows. It even includes an ad for the sixth season of Dexter...

The ad for Dexter is only about 6 seconds long. Interestingly, the marketing team at Showtime thought it would be nice to show THE LAST SIX SECONDS OF THE SEASON YOU'RE ABOUT TO WATCH! It ruined the entire season before we even got a chance to watch it. I have sent a letter to Showtime iterating this blatant oversight. I will update this review if/when I receive a response from them.

Update 9/2:
I received a response from Showtime. They thanked me for informing them of the error, but did not apologize. They then said that Showtime is not responsible for DVDs, and that I should contact Paramount. They did not provide contact information.

I found a contact for customer relations at Paramount, and sent an email to them. I didn't hear anything for a few days, so I emailed them again. At this point, they forwarded my email to the VP of legal and customer relations.

He responded immediately and asked for a good time to have a conversation over the phone. He was very apologetic about the situation. He informed me that Paramount is not in fact responsible for the content of the DVDs, and that they just manufacture them. The actual content, including the promotions, are provided to them by Showtime. So it was incorrect of Showtime to forward my comments to Paramount.

I loved this 6th season of Dexter, but who is the IDIOT, the MORON that decide to put all the Showtime ads on the front of each disc that you CAN NOT escape out of, you CAN NOT skip through, you CAN NOT FAST FORWARD through that you are forced to watch in order to get to the main menu and then to include in that montage quite LITERALLY the LAST shot of the final episode of Dexter's 6th season. HOW STUPID ARE YOU?!!!

We love this show, and my fiancee and I have been so excited for the release of season 6, so we ran out and bought it the day it was released. Wow. I wish we would have waited and read the reviews on here before we popped in that first disc, only to see the entire season finale SPOILED in Showtime's stupid 3 minute long promo for every show that has ever and will ever air on the station. And of course you cannot skip it, or even fast forward it. No! Then how would they force you to watch the final 6 seconds of the season you are about to start watching? Oh, and it gets better, in case you happen to somehow miss it on the first disc, it's also on the second, third and fourth disc. STUPID!!! What marketing MORON made the call on this one? It's like showing the end of a movie in the trailer. IDIOTIC! It ruined the entire finale for us. Thanks Showtime marketing geniuses. Great job.

As other commenters have noted, the previews, which are annoyingly on every single disc, and which cannot be skipped, show the last 5 seconds of the season and reveal a major spoiler. When I saw it, I was in serious disbelief that they would show a huge spoiler for Dexter anywhere, let alone on the Dexter DVD itself. I am extremely annoyed by this, to say the least. Thanks for ruining the show for me.

So I've waited about a year to buy season 6 of Dexter. Disk one has a bunch of previews for Showtime that you cannot forward through. One of the previews is the last scene of Dexter season 6...the one I am watching...it basically ruins the whole season, I would say what it is but i dont want to ruin it for anyone else. If you buy this, do not watch the beginning showtime previews or the whole season of Dexter (6) will be ruined. So friggen aggrivating!
