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.

All of the writing and acting is exceptional in this series for both lead and supporting characters. It has action, suspense and comedy, and one of the characters uses alot of profanity (which strangely enough is an endearing part of her character and part of the comedic aspect). It is not derogatory or offensive to any certain group, but if you are unable to appreciate artfully strung together four-letter words and other combinations thereof, you may not like at least a line or two of the scenes that character is in.
Considering this series is about a serial "killer" who is obsessed with blood, it really isn't a gory series at all. I would say that the suspense and drama are balanced with a light-heartedness that makes it easy to watch. Not so much for the kiddies, obviously, but most adults will find this show enjoyable.
Again, the season itself isn't all that bad, just not one of the best that this otherwise GREAT show has put together. The problem is the final episode. I won't ruin it for anybody (although by now you have probably already heard about it) the final episode is probably the WORST I have EVER seen. It answers questions for you, so it doesn't leave you in suspense like The Soprano's did, but it is like writers JUST released that was the LAST episode and hastily put something together!!! Not the send off this show needed!!!!
I don't watch a lot of TV that isn't sports or news, so I was kind of sad to see it end. If you are a fellow fan that just wanted to own the final season, this is worth buying. Again, the season itself isn't THAT bad! The final episode WILL leave you VERY disappointed!!!
Lots of bad reviews and quite a few 5-star reviews as well here. Overall I feel it was as good as I expected it to be - and that it was time to end the series anyway. Most of my reviews for the other seasons were 5-stars, this is a fantastic series!
There are some fantastic, very memorable scenes in this season, and some that you will feel you they could have done without - but honestly it's like that every season. Season 2 was probably my overall favorite, Dokes and his interactions with Dexter really made it great. This season focuses more on winding everything down with the story lines, filling some holes in the history of Dexter and how things came to be with him, and of course building up to the ending. The problem I think most folks have is that it had a slower feel to it because of all the holes they were trying to fill for those of us who really wanted to understand Dexter more. Some of the folks that I talked to who were disappointed were hoping for huge fireworks of slaughter with Dexter laying person after person on his table every episode - it wasn't like that (and I don't consider that a spoiler, more of a warning to the folks who are hoping for it). Character development did seem loose at times - but again, this is the final season - developing characters wasn't much on their minds, it was about closure.
This wasn't my favorite season, but it wasn't my least favorite either. And I loved every season! Go into this seasons looking for drama, story telling and closure and you'll be very happy.
