Dexter is one of those great shows you can catch on TV late at night, and you expect it to be on when nothing else is. It is packed full of humor that almost anyone can relate to, and includes problems that real people can actually understand. Rather than watching some crazy soap opera with twisted story lines, Dexter brings out the humor in everyday live even just by sitting in a coffee shop and chatting with friends.
While the idea of a show about a sympathetic serial killer seems to be unlikely at best and sheer fantasy at worst, Showtime's Dexter takes a seemingly contradictory idea and turns it into an edgy and captivating character portrait of a man whose mindset and point of view are significantly different than anything most people could even begin to consider. This series, just recently finished with its second season and getting ready to launch into a third, is based on the novel "Darkly Dreaming Dexter" by Jeff Lindsay and adapted for television by screenwriter James Manos Jr.
Dexter Morgan, played with understated charm and deadly accuracy by Michael C. Hall, is a blood-splatter analyst in the crime-ridden city of Miami. With Miami's unsolved homicide rate staying quite high, Dexter has a great deal of time to practice his own dark hobby, that of killing off other killers. Deter had been adopted by a cop (played by James Remar in flashback) after a traumatic incident as a child and grew up with what he called "Harry's Code," a code that forbade killing unless the victim deserved it; this code is the only thing that keeps Dexter, already a budding monster at the age of nine, on the comparatively straight and narrow.
Dexter's life is complicated by an antagonistic relationship with Sergeant James Doakes, portrayed by Erik King, who is certain that Dexter is guilty about something terrible but remains unsure about what it is. Dexter's sister Debra, played by Jennifer Carpenter, is also on the police force, and when she's assigned to homicide, things get more than a little tense between the two formerly close siblings. Dexter is kept from complete inhumanity through the presence of his girlfriend a, single mother named Rita, as played Julie Benz
Ever since the series's first appearance in 2006, the show Dexter has been receiving rave reviews from critics who hail it as an impressive character drama and a stunning display of style and storytelling. The Chicago Tribune states that "to deny yourself the engrossing “Dexter” based on its subject matter would be to miss out on one of television’s most fiendishly intelligent new dramas," while the New York Times calls Dexter "bold, different and exciting, with a central character and performance that take your breath away." This series has also won a large amount of awards over the past two years, including a Golden Globe nomination for Michael C. Hall and a Saturn win for Jennifer Carpenter.
Dexter's third season is due to air in 2008 and after seeing Dexter struggle with the Ice Truck Killer in season one and his own demons and troubled, nearly-forgotten past in season two, fans are eagerly what awaits Dexter in season three!
