Editorial Reviews

Dexter 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.

I give this five stars for the show, but one star for the price. Dexter is a great show and I consider it a must watch television show. But the price of this bundle is kind of ridiculous. At the time of writing this review you could buy the individual Blu-ray disc seasons for $205 a savings of almost $50. So please go buy them individually and save some loot.

But if you're new to Dexter make sure to watch them in order the show is great when you know all the characters and their back story. And season eight will be the final season so what better way to prepare than watching all seven.

Another thing you might want to keep in mind is that at the end of season eight you can be sure there can release a "collectors edition" probably for around this price so you might want to hold off and wait for that. I'm sure it will be out before Christmas.

Thanks for reading I hope this helps!

This product contains Seasons 1-7 of the Showtime original series "Dexter". In honor of the eighth (and I believe the final) season - coming summer 2013 - I will be watching all the episodes of Dexter from the beginning. If you like the show but don't yet own the seasons on blu-ray, then this is the perfect bundle for you. If you've never seen the show, then I encourage you to give it a chance. I know some people who are put off by the premise of a blood spatter guy who moonlights as a serial killer, but I assure you the series is much more complex than that and you really enjoy the characters and the story. This blu-ray bundle is the perfect way for you to catch up with this great series.

Although it's not for everyone, I really enjoy the dark themes presented in the show. It's a constant struggle for Dexter to keep his work a secret -- he works for Miami-Metro Homicide department, surrounded by the very people looking for him. And while certain characters are glad that someone is ridding the world of bad people, there are many other characters who see Dexter's actions as an insult to law enforcement and the criminal justice system. Being the rational and peaceful person that I am... Dexter's actions on the show are not justified from my perspective. But it's still fun to watch someone on television who embraces the darker side of his personality and channels it to potentially rid the world of criminals. You are stunned to find that you come to like the main character - who would've thought that a killer could be this likable?

There are some seasons that are better than others (Seasons 3 and 4 are my personal favorites), but I think they are all worth a watch because each season is essential to the story.

While the artwork seems correct and states that the discs are legitimate SHOWTIME product, the video quality of this collection ranges from horrible to poor, like bootleg copies knocked out from Donnie's Dubbing Den. The first two seasons had focus problems so variable that my eyeballs felt sucked from my head.
Then there are the freezes that occur at crucial moments, not to mention the blocky pixilation scattered throughout.
Resolution improved as the series progressed but never quite rose to the level of 480p.
If you're no great fan of all that HD and 1080p stuff, or you're still watching your favorite VHS movies, this series is watchable-but just.

Of course some seasons are better than others, but overall this is a great series. The seven season pack is a good deal (much better than purchasing the seasons separately) and it is neatly put together. It adds nicely to a movie collection.

We adore the series but, so far, at least one episode (Season 4 Season Finale) would not play on our DVD player in the living room, the bedroom, the kitchen, the car, or my child's Fisher Price DVD player - it comes up as "unrecognized format". BUMMER

I love this show so purchasing it on dvd was a must in order to be able to rewatch it whenever I want. I love the dark humor and think it is the best written show on tv. The only reason I did not give it 5 stars is because the price was a little high and there was several moments when the video quality was not perfect. Other than that it was highly enjoyable!

I was watching Dexter from the very beginning and somehow fell behind. I was so very sad but we couldn't catch up. I finally broke down and tried to rent the seasons and that was too frustrating. So now we bought the entire series and can watch it from start to end as we like! I have read the books and I don't know what I will do when the series ends!!!! How will I fill the void?!?!?!?!

The only bad thing about this set is that you don't have the option to have subtitles. Other than that, great series and great price!!
