I've been obsessed with Dexter for over 2 years now. It's leagues above all other TV series I've ever seen. I can't really put into words how much I love this show. Dexter Morgan is so real to me I can't wrap my head around that he's really Michael C. Hall... who must be the best actor ever.
It's exciting, humorous and psychologically interesting... and I guess I like it so much because in some ways I relate to Dexter, as so many people do. Not because I want to kill (though the idea of getting rid of sadists is alluring), but because I feel like I put on a mask and act with other people, I have friends, but I feel like it's all fake, meaningless, because inside, I feel empty, lonely and disconnected. Which is probably why it's been so exciting to follow Dexter on his psychological journey, trying to feel connected. My mom came into my room the other day when I was watching Dexter preparing to knife his prey, with a big grin on my face - she called me insane, of course... People are unable to understand how captivating Dexter is until they watch it themselves.
