Has anyone else from the board become enthralled by the brilliant TV drama Dexter? If so, what are your favourite plot elements, characters etc?

I personally think that the programmes shining point is its mixture of almost unbearable tension with its dark humour which has you laughing at almost inappropriate times.

It was poorly drawn and wasn’t funny.

Anyway that’s besides the point. We’re discussing the TV drama.

Another aspect of it which I find quite interesting is that, despite what Dexter does in his “spare time” you REALLY don’t want him to get caught. Which would go against how you would usually feel about that sort of person.

basicaly this guy name Dexter who works with the Cops, but he takes the law into his own hand and kills people who have been proven to be evil, and committed bar crimes. It’s very good, and yeah you never want him to get caught despite the fact he’s a sociopathic mad man :lol:

He is a blood spatter analyst who works for the miani metro police. But He is also a serial killer. He has an urge which he has to obey and, following a code given to him by his foster father Harry (a cop) channels his urges into killing those who escape justice from his department.

Seriously, that’s a bit harsh to say Dexter’s Laboratory was rubbish.

Okay I’ve managed to watch the first episode so far (my friend at work was kind enough to record it off Sky for me), and I loved it! Dexter never disappoints me, it just keeps getting better. John Lithgow is also reaaaally creepy in this….I mostly remember him as Dick from 3rd Rock From the Sun so it’s kind of weird seeing him kill people!
