Dexter" is one of the most original shows on television and is filled with bloody good fun.
The story follows blood splatter analyst Dexter Morgan. He's got the good life. A healthy relationship, kids(soon to premiere on season 4), and a somewhat "fun" job. Well at nights when hes not piled high with work like the rest of us, he goes out and kills. Yes the hero and main protagonist of the show is a serial killer. But that doesn't mean its a bad thing. You see Dexter kills bad guys. Criminals he hunts like we hunt wild game. Whether this is a good thing or not, its basically an opinionated answer. But something thats not opinionated is that this is one of the most clever shows on television.
Dexter is portrayed by Michael C Hall. Who is absolutely brilliant in his role as a sociopath good doer. He fill each and everyone of his scenes with dark rich humor. That is what makes the show so fun. It's not about who's screwing who or whos the nation's newest threat its the everyday guy ridding the world of one more evil doer. Even if hes evil himself. But hey at least that's more entertaining than who just got voted off he island.
Dexter on Sundays at 10:00 pm on Showtime
