  • Finally, a successful criminal show pilot!

    Michael C. Hall does an outstanding job portraying Dexter, as he brings to life a criminal sociopath in this episode. His performances should earn him an Emmy nomination, if not the best Actor Emmy.

    The writers and producers succeeded where others (Heist and Smith) failed in their pilot to draw the viewers into the show. They deserve a well earned congratulation for this accomplishment.

    This all being said, one needs to remember murder for any reason is wrong. The show doesn't glorify Dexter's act, but explores the background, actions, and thoughts of Dexter and those around him. Neither this episode nor the series is for children of any age or adults having mental issues with hurting others. For the rest of the adult world, though, Dexter takes us on an intelligential, out of the box, and (I hate to say it) fun ride.
