    The latest episode of Dexter has been receiving high marks and praises, but I have to say that it was a pretty disappointing episode overall. There were some good moments with Dexter and Jordan Chase, but at this point Dexter's inner thoughts are becoming more annoying and less funny. They need to tone down on that.



    And speaking of the Deb and Maria drama, I could not give two flying birds about it. I know the show is trying to become more well-rounded, but I just cannot get into anything on this show not involving Dexter Morgan.



    Not a bad hour at all, but below average, even for this season.moreless

    Seriously, I don´t understand why everybody isn't enjoying this season as much as the others!

    Michael C. Hall is doing an excellent job, as always (expect another golden globe nom), supporting characters are being well developed, and the plot is as interesting and compelling as ever.

    Although season 5 didn't get a master like John Lithgow to play the villain, I think Jonny Lee Miller is doing a pretty good job so far, and Julia Stiles is at her best.

    I think people are forgetting that, at this time, dexter is not only a serial killer, he is a man too, a human being, whether you like ir or not, and although I watch dexter for the action, I watch it for the drama too, and Rita's death had a very positive impact on this side of the show. Dexter's inner dialogues are getting better and better, and his life is just amazingly complex right now.

    Oh, and the cliffhangers are still alive!!!

    Great episode, great season so far.moreless
  • Dexter is Dexter ?

    Episode talking about new side of Dex mind. Is he the old Dexter ? I don`t think so ... Now almost everyone know about Lumen, Lumen know almost or just everything about Dexter secret`s. Hm what we should thinking about all of that ? maybe It is good for this series maybe not but one thing can`t be impair - This is defienietly curious for us what will be next. Liddy every day is little closer to find out everything about Dex but maybe Queen rescue our hero ?



    Debra is in trouble but she in his style find something which can rescue her from this situation.



    Jordan Chase hmm maybe he is good rival for Dexter in this season ? of course that isn`t trinity but he is interesting person and what is more curious very popular person and killing him not will be easy.



    Good season and good episode

    Teenage Wasteland was a perfect episode of Dexter. At first I wasn't sure how good the episode was going to be, but things really got going and there were lots of revelations, suspense, intrigue, drama, and secrets. This episode was very entertaining and showed a lot of growth for Dexter as he handled Astor and her situation pretty well. I was shocked to find out Liddy found out so much, and now Jordan Chase is onto Dexter and Lumen! The ending of this episode left me hanging for more and I can't wait to see how things play out now that multiple secrets are unraveling!!!!!!!moreless
  • More boring stuff happens with Lumen and Dexter; Aster rejoins the cast and decides to be boring with Lumen and Dexter.

    1.0
    Another terrible episode of this crappy season raps up and I ask myself, why am I watching this series? I remember being a little cheesed by season 3, but nowhere near this much. And besides, season 3 eventually picked up. This season has had no pickup ever. In this episode there was almost something that seemed like inertia (no spoilers, but it involves Aster's return) but don't worry, it's quickly turned pointless. Bad. They need to really really do something crazy in the season finale or else this will go down in the books as the post shark jump after Rita died.moreless
