Dexter 8 Seasons 2010

Season 5
4.6 out of 5 stars (851) IMDb 8.8/10

The Showtime Original Series DEXTER is back with an all-new season, and this time America's favorite serial killer has gone from freewheeling bachelor to responsible husband and doting dad. Maintaining an average-guy facade while satisfying his need to kill has never been easy. But now, with wife and kids in tow, Dexter's got more to lose then ever, as he gets drawn into a deadly game with a killer every bit as dangerous -- and conflicted -- as he is.

By Grady Harp HALL OF FAMETOP 100 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on December 2, 2010
Format: DVD
DEXTER Season 5 is the best of the seasons so far. While last season was dominated by the presence of John Lithgow, the shining star of and surprise of this season is the presence of Julia Stiles as Lumen, an abused victim who escapes her abusers and pledges to join Dexter in 'stabbing out' her revenge. The writing is tighter and the subplots or sidebars are far more interesting: the many different love entanglements keep your head spinning. The fellow workers with Dexter (Michael C.Hall) remain the same - Jennifer Carpenter (the real Mrs Hall), Desmond Harrington, David Zayas, Lauren Velez, CS Lee, and James Remar - all better than ever. But the added attraction characters this year include Maria Doyle Kennedy (from The Tudors) as the nanny for Dexter's son, and Jonny Lee Miller as a twisted Inspirational Coach.

The premise of following a serial killer who chooses as his victims criminals who would have otherwise not been punished is by now, after four seasons, a character we can all understand - emotionally, motivationally, and as a brilliant law enforcement team member. But the coups of the season was the addition of Julia Stiles who does some of the finest work of her career here. Enough said. The suspense is what drives this show! Grady Harp, December 10

I never imagined I of all people would be a Dexter fan!
The reason I write this is because I've never been a fan of horror movies & am not that great watching blood & guts....in fact, I most avoid both of these!!
But, a close friend kept raving about Dexter & I gave the show a shot.
Even at Season 5 - when most shows start to lose steam & sometimes viewers - I am still glued to the screen & always left wanting more Dexter!
I was wondering how Season 5 would handled (having to change this due to people watching season's out of order) - the drama with Rita & I feel like they did an awesome job!
I promise Season 5 will not disappoint the die hard Dexter fan!
Or, even if you are a first time viewer....you will quickly become a fan! (Although, I highly recommend watching Dexter in all its glory from the very beginning - Season 1-5!)
Season 6 can't come fast enough since I don't subscribe to Showtime!

Firstly, this is the best show on television, plain and simple. I came to it late, discovering just a little over two years ago, and so I've had to catch up - I completely agree with the many, many reviews on different sites which really go after the quality of the DVDs for "Dexter", by the way. If you can get Blu, do so. Now, a series about a serial killer didn't quite seem like my kind of trip when I first began watching "Dexter", but this show quickly pulls you in with excellent acting, writing and directing. (Trivia: Are any of you old enough to remember the geeky guy who lets his haunted car, Christine, take over his life and get even at everybody else, in the Stephen King classic, "Christine"? That actor, Keith Gordon, is the same man directing this series. Anyhow!) Michael C. Hall is nothing less than superb as the tortured title character, and he continues hitting it out of the ballpark this season, despite having spent the majority of this last year or so sick as a dog and undergoing chemotherapy in real life for leukemia. (His agent says that he's doing well, right now). As we all know from decades of anti-heroes, the audience has to like a killer (Warren Beatty as Clyde Barrow, for instance), or watching this type of show is going to leave you with a - well, weird feeling: I've seen shows, both fictional and biographical, where the 'hero' was so revolting an individual that I couldn't figure out why anybody thought he/she deserved a show, and I had to take a shower after watching the piece of garbage.Read more ›

My husband and I became Dexter fans less than a year ago and sped through the first four seasons. You could say it's our guilty pleasure. The end of season four was the most disturbing and thought-provoking event of the series and I couldn't wait to find out how Dexter would go on afterwards. Season Five is off to a great start- keeping you staring into the soul (yes, believe it or not) soul of a serial killer. The season premiere reminds me- like all the other Dexter episodes, that good TV is about great characters (believable or not), funny moments mixed in with the tragedy, and ultimately, a search for justice in a crazy world.

This is not a complete review of season 5 because it's not over yet, but I had to post this any way. Every time I think this show can't get any better....they prove me wrong. Season 5 is heading for a total bloodbath ending. There are a couple story lines that are heading towards a bloody conclusion in the finale. They really upped the ante with the SCUMBAG "villians" this season. Jonny Miller is the sleazy inspirational speaker , Jordan Chase, with his entourage of serial killing childhood friends. He is the MOST hatable villain yet in 5 seasons. Peter Weller is great as the dirty private detective who was working for Quinn. But season 5 belongs to Julia Stiles...... I was never a big fan of hers (except for 10 Things I Hate About You)...but she has been AWESOME and totally believable as the one surviving "victim" of Jordan Chase's psycho mob. Dexter saves her and befriends her and together they start to wipe out Jordan Chase's mob. I don't know how this is gonna all end....but I can't wait for Sunday nights !!
