Official Dexter Thread *SPOILERS*

Well I used search and a lot of these came up. So I decide to make an Offical one so we can keep it all in one spot, Hope thats cool with everyone.

Ok So Season 4 ended on Sunday, and I must say it was awesome, they truly know how to leave you with a cliff hanger of the season.

I don't want to say too much more about it in case some people havn't seen it yet. Thoughts anyone?

I just picked up this show a month ago.
I have to say i had some trouble getting into it but after the 3rd episode of season one i was an addict.
Now i'am in episode 4 of season 3, watching a minimum of 1 episode a day, and i have to say this is one of the best shows ever.

I don't think i will be following this thread cause i don't wanna see any spoilers....

The end of season 4 blew my mind. I love this show, it's so dark and intelligent (something you don't see often on TV, nevermind US TV )

My favorite show of all time. The ending to this season was a complete shock. If you rewind to about 5-10 minutes before the ending and listen to what Trinity was saying to Dexter it has a completely different meaning than the jibberish i thought it was...

Cant beleive we have to wait a year to find out what the hells going to happen! Im hoping the ending was a dream... Ugh.

Whats your favorite season?

This was arguably the best cliffhanger finale that I have ever seen. Absolutely blew my mind! I cannot wait to see where the writers go from here! Excellent show. One of my favorites on television.

Also, I think John Lithgow (spelling?), deserves an award for his performance as the creepy, emotionless Trinity killer.

This season was a big step down, to me at least. Lithgow's performance was amazing, but the writing has really fallen off. This show has never been of the same caliber as say the Sopranos or Six Feet Under, but I thought they were trying to be somewhere closer to that level of television. Instead it seems like they are becoming more satisfied with mundane twists and iffy plot devices. This show is really closer to things like 24 or Lost in terms of quality at this point. I will keep watching, but I won't expect to be intellectually stimulated or to be faced with anything of real substance, but instead to be simply mildly entertained.

I thought this season was a massive step-up. I do agree about Lithgow though. He nailed every single aspect of this character and brought him to life. Outstanding acting.

I Think think every season just gets better and better. Though the only season I didn't care much for was the second with the whole Lila thing. It kinda seemed outa character for Dex. But I can't wait for next season. I'm watching Californiacation right now to hold me over, but the way I watch stuff it will not last long. I finished season 1 in one night.

I think the person who really deserves an award this season is Jen Carpenter(Debra Morgan). She really came into her own this season and I found every scene she was in was truly captivating, her breakdown mid season when she was in the parking lot with Dexter is when I really started to notice how good the season was for her. Great ending to a very meh season....it's unfortunate that Dexter will never again reach the standard it set in season one, it appears they set the bar to high and since then they've held up mildly disappointing seasons with (sometimes) great endings.

Up to episode 5 or 6 now. Holy shit is this season good. Malkovich gives me the creeps and I was as shocked as Dexter to see he has a family. Debra breaking down like that really made me feel for her, she's gotten a lot of shit over the years.

The wife and I are lovin some Dexter we just discovered it on Netflix not long ago so we are only the 2nd disc of season 3. So I can't comment or visit this thread again so I don't have to worry about finding out too much LOL. Just wanted to stop by and give Dexter and Netflix a shout out. Awesome show.

The bar was set really high but I think that they seem to keep up that bar. I think the writers and actors do a wonderful job in this show the acting is top-notch. They deserve more awards. I hope they eventually come out with a movie I would love to see a full length movie with Dex.

Personally I found season 4 very drawn out compared to some of the other ones, just wasnt as much going on in comparison to the ice truck killer season. The last episodes def pulled it together though which was a nice touch. It kind of makes me wonder if this will stop with him getting out of the game or if this will flip the switch and make him become the dark passenger full time

Season 4's ending was one of the best. Just when you though everything was fine and then it hits you.

I can't wait for this to come out on DVD. I no longer have showtime so after the first season I've had to wait for it to come out on DVD to watch it. ARRRRGGGHHH!!! I have no patience. I'm probably going to end up rewatching the previous three because four probably won't be on DVD for a while and I don't want to wait another couple months to watch more of the show.

On another note, glad to see a Nietzsche quotation in your sig MelangeAddict. Hats off to you man.

I <3 Dexter, I defiantly agree with Empire magazine that it is the 30th best TV series to date.

I have only seen season's 1-2 and I have heard a rumor that they are trying to ban it out here for some reason.

I have been thinking of watching Dexter for a while now but every time I finish a series I tend to go with another series rather then Dexter.

I watch: 24, Lost, Supernatural, Smallville, Chuck, Heroes to name a few of those with action but I'm wondering how Dexter compares to these series? I'm hoping to run through Entourage before pretty much 20 series restart in January that I watch and so I'm not sure whether it worth also trying out Dexter but just looking for a few comparisons and opinions.

Dexter is an amazing series. Very interesting characters, you won't see any of twists coming, well, maybe a few, but nothing is cliche, and everything has shades of gray. It's hilarious at times, sad at others, and almost all of time you'll be at the edge of your seat.

It's one of the few series that does everything right. Oh, and it's not an ABC. Which is a plus.

Still a few episodes from the end but holy shit.
Lithgow is great as Trinity and even scarier losing his mask of normalcy.
Elliot might want to move away.
Kind of a shock about the reporter.

Holy shit, what an ending. I'm actually bummed out. Fuck man, why did that have to happen and how is going to affect Dexter's kids and his Dark Passenger?

Ok I watch or watched most of those shows and Dexter is by far the best. Where most shows like Heroes start to go down hill Dexter stays solid. Though Chuck only has two seasons and now going on a third after it got canceled I'm very excited to see what they have planned next for Chuck. Sorry for that plug, I just like Chuck. But Dexter is awsome watch it, you won't regret it.

See I have heard alot of mixed opinions about Dexter and thats why I was asking but I think I will have to check it out soon.

As for Chuck, after the ending of season 2 I can only see season 3 being pretty awesome although there wont be much more 'stay in the car Chuck' and so alot will change but I'm looking forward to it anyway.

I will start watching Dexter soon anyway, hopefully also get up to date with it before every season restarts in around a week.
