From Library Staff

A pretty dark show about a serial killer who kills serial killers.

A serial killer doing the right thing? That's for you to judge.

Michael C. Hall gets 5-stars. He deserved an Emmy for his performance as “Dexter”.

I didn't think I would like this series as much as I did. Now I'm hooked and awaiting the season two dvd. One negative point: On the bonus material the Biographies did not include anything on the Rudy (aka Brian) character. I enjoyed his acting so I was disappointed to find he wasn't included in this section while other actors were that played a lessor role in season one were. Unfortunately this character (Rudy) was killed off. I just hope season two will contain an equally, or better, antagonist.

Very creative thinking... making a serial killer into almost a hero... at least for some. Very good plot. Bottom line, it's a killer show !!!...

I was afraid that the combination of Dexter’s inner monologue and flashbacks would give away too much of the plot. But, there are enough unknowns to keep me guessing and interested in the series.

Great blend of his personal and work life. He is a serial killer with a heart! Can't wait to see the other seasons.

Discovered this show has so many fanatic fans, I had to try the first two episodes on Amazon Prime. Got hooked, every episode is a superbly crafted jewel of suspense and mystery. Prepare to discover things about yourself, and about human nature as you watch. Warning: this series can be addicting, and I have found myself drenched in a cold tense sweat several times whilst watching the first two seasons. On to season 3.
