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.
Own it all: 8 seasons, exclusive art book and a bonus disc of killer special features…in a collectible slide box inspired by the one Dexter himself uses on the show to catalog his kills.

- the supplied poster book does not fit into box, so you have to store it separately
- box is huge. The dimensions are 14x7.5x6 inches. Collectors and devotees of the show would love it. Casual fans, like myself will struggle to find a shelf space big enough to accommodate it. There is lots of wasted space. Blu-ray set contains 25 disks, but there are 42 slots in the box to fit in paper cards and fake blood slides. So the box could be almost half the size and still fit the entire 8 seasons plus bonus disk.
- Assembly is required. This is minor, but when you get the package, there is outer cover, that you would have to discard, then the box itself and the disks are housed in the temporary small container within the box. It takes good 10 minutes to slide them all into slots within a box. I almost wished the carton box that the disks are stored in temporarily would have more finished look, so I would put that on shelf and not the box.
For casual fans, especially if you already running out of space to store all your Blu-Rays, this gift set would be a mixed blessing. I really wish they would release just a regular, no thrills compact Blu-Ray set that I can use to watch the show.
The Box is cardboard, not wood and the latch just swivels up and down but does latch the top. The numbers marking the slots are just printed on a piece of cheap paper and glued to the edge of the cardboard box and the numbers in the lid are just as cheap looking and not aligned very well. Seems to me that for $100 + the quality should be better. They could take a lesson from the Son's of Anarchy boxed set . . . now that is quality.
I am sure the content is great . . . but don't know because I returned mine for a replacement. The latch seemed broken, the seal on the disc box was cut open, the book cover was torn and the divider tabs were split and bent (no protection from the disc box lid smashing the tabs). This set looks used.
Hope the replacement is better as I really do want to watch the early seasons and I like the packaging concept, just not the execution.
Received my replacement and the quality was much better . . . no broken latch, bent tabs, etc. I still am a little disappointed with the packaging (cardboard verses wood), but overall, I like it. Almost through season 2.
Very nice, it has "Dexter: The Complete Series" printed on both sides. The "wood" finish isn't really wood, but a paper cover instead. The numbering on the inside is also paper. It Top of the box starts at "1" but the bottom of the box starts with "42." That may be hard to understand but it doesn't seem like it should be that way. The only problem I had was the top and bottom of the box didn't line up. The top was a little shorter than the bottom.
This is what disappointed me the most. The "Blood Slides" that held the disc in was only one sided. Half of my DVD's were already popped out and it was frustrating. I don't know why they could have added a second side to secure the disc inside. Another thing, though minor, was the fact that there was a clear, transparent "thing" I don't want to say paper but I can't think of the word right now. It was placed on the other side of the disc holder to make it look like a blood slide. It had a red circle and gave it the real feel, but instead of imprinting it on the case, it was taped on to the back. Some of the slides didn't match up with each other so that was frustrating as well.
The Grafix Art Book:
It was a nice addition, it just added some artwork and photos that were taken throughout the seasons of Dexter. It even had the season prints that I really liked. It was a nice addition but nothing super special.
Overall, I still think it is a very nice product, maybe not worth the $219 price tag, but if the price ever drops, I would definitely buy it. This is a piece of Dexter Memorabilia that you will be glad to make apart of your collection.
This is also my first review so I tried my best at explaining everything.
My expectations were pretty low, but I decided at $160 it was actually cheaper than buying the season individually...so how bad could it actually be?
It's true that the box is faux wood, with a faux brand of the show's logo. But, seriously what do people expect to get? A finely crafted oak box? People are unrealistic in what they expect. I will say that if this set was selling for $350-$400, I would expect something more.
Anyway, for $160, this is really a nice set despite the cheap look. I'm very pleased with it. I am considering actually making my own box out of quality wood. It would take me hours and probably cost $50 in material. But, that's my solution to the faux wood.
The paper glued to the lid of the box is just plain stupid. I don't know what that's about. I'd tear it out if I didn't think it would look worse afterwards. It really is ugly and pointless.
I like how they got the order correct. (some have complained about this) If you looked at the way Dexter kept his trophies, he organized them from the hinge of the box towards the front...filling them in from the back first. This is how it should be.
The little strip of paper that identifies (numbers) the slots is tacky and unnecessary however.
