    • Conflicted

      4.0
      So far I've seen the first season and started on the second and I feel strongly conflicted about it. On the one hand the show is entertaining and well written on the other it seems to be trying to justify the acts of a mass murderer. Dexter is a psychopath with an irresistible compulsion to kill and dismember people but he is very picky about his victims. He will only kill other serial killers. It seems that all of his victims have three or four kills under their belts. He's kind of like Batman with a chainsaw. The show seems to want us to empathize with this reptile. At times he kills murderers to save their future victims, so you could say that he has saved countless . Oh yeah, really shitty things happened to him as a child, like the time he saw his mom murdered with a chainsaw and then his foster father fucked with his mind all the time. I think I would be less conflicted if the show presented Dex as more of a hypocrite, someone who murders random people then has to come up with some bullshit reasons to justify the mayhem. I also think it would be really cool if we got to watch while he dismembers the bodies. Oh well, the show ran for about nine seasons, maybe some of that will be in an upcoming episode.moreless

    • Great show just hated the rita person.

      8.0
      Rita was so annoying and self centered. I would have loved to see her killed much sooner, like season 1 for example.
