Really? Wow, bummer man. That stinks. I really wish companies would release things worldwide instead of making other regions wait for extended periods of time when its been released elsewhere. Never really makes sense to me.

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.
Right well after posting this and reading replies I got around to watching Entourage 1-6 then Dexter 1-4 over the past week and after 2 eps of getting used to it I loved it!

Will warn you now I'm going to ramble on for a while lol!

I just finished watching the first four seasons, what an amazing show. I have never been so emotionally involved in a series. The episode when trinity and his family are with Dexter sent chills down my spine!

You don't have to wait for it. Go to this website:

http://www.watch-90210-online-free.c...ws-Online.html

Hit CTRL+F and type in Dexter. I watched every season in a single month. It's probably my favourite show of all time.

Also, Daredevil

Yeah I think either way theres alot of room and sense to be built upon from either dream or reality whatever the writer's choose to move on from.

I just can't wait for the new season but like with Entourage, the wait is far too long

Rita won't be coming back like Harry did. Almost positive she won't be. She doesn't know about Dexter's ways and it wouldn't serve any point to have her come back.

Anyone else think that Cody is alot like Dexter?

1. He lives with a different father

2. Some scenes that can be interpreted that he is like Dexter. Can't remember some of them but if you go back and look you can definitley see some of these.

In the second book he goes fishing with Cody and little Cody enjoys killing the fish, among other things. They both had traumatic childhoods etc. Dexter is Cody's Harry.

Kind of, sort of. Harrison will be more of Dexter's protege than Cody, I think, because Cody wasn't born of blood. It makes no sense to make Cody like Dexter. Cody's most traumatic experience was his mom being abused, but Dexter witnessed his mother being chopped to pieces by a chainsaw. I'd be quite surprised if Cody became like Dexter because that simply downplays the whole "blood" theme that's so dominant in the show. Also, Cody isn't a psychopath and is capable of feeling emotions unlike Dexter. Dexter can, sometimes, feel emotions it seems like it, but he still refers to people as humans and things of that nature.

I think it would be better if Rita didn't come back like Harry has to Dexter but I think that if she is actually dead then she will as she will be the good in Dexter's life telling him to do right where as Harry serves as his dark passenger influencing his work.

As said I think Cody's story just played out whilst their story went along and if he and his sister (Forgotten her name) continue to feature in Dexter they will only serve as a problem to his work but also a reason for him to be more human.

In the third book, Dexter teaches Astor and Cody the code and brings them to a kill. I kinda wish they had that in the show. The reasoning was that Paul was so violent that he drew out their dark passenger, and they killed the neighbor's dog, stabbed fish, etc. But I don't think they would carry that over into the show. My guess is that season 5 will jump ahead kind of like season 4(3 ended with Rita pregnant and them discussing homes, and then 4 suddenly had Harrison born and them already fitted into their new home). Dexter will find out that Harrison has a passenger, and teach him the code. This would be smart because it would allow the producers some breathing room, since they can continue the show with Harrison if the Dexter story gets a little overused. Just a guess.

Quite alot of different books on play.com, so wondering which ones those of you have read you would reccomend?

Seen seasons 1-4 etc but any books worth reading that follow on I would be interested in getting if they are a good read.

This is most def one of my fav shows. I can't wait for season 5.

One thing that irks me though is that none of the seasons are currently available on blu-ray in the UK and there's no word on when they will be either.

One of my favourite shows. I've recommended this show to almost everyone I know, and most of them like it as well. I'm eagerly awaiting season 5 to see the aftermath of the season 4 finale.

I love the show, and had the ending of season 4 spoiled for me via the official Dexter page on Facebook. Not how, but the very basic what. Still, it's been blocked, and I enjoyed the hell out of the season. Up until the end, I kept thinking, it's gotta be wrong, no way he had time, etc. So I believe I got most of the impact.

As for the kids, Cody seems quiet but square, but Astor seems like she could grow into a heartless killer. That girl is just cold, like Dexter, in many ways. Like looks, they both look *almost* normal but there's something else. She's too cold for a girl her age, and he's too quiet. They're both socially backwards. Still not sure how they'll be handled. They're Dexter's legally, though, not sure about specific FL laws, but since their biological parents have both passed on, and Dexter married their mother, unless their grandparents or an aunt/uncle adopt them, they're his. If the writers take them out like that, I'll be hugely disappointed, as having a family, that third side of Dexter (after blood-spatter analyst and serial killer) really helped define the show.

I believe season 4 is the best yet. The first was pretty good, but seasons 2 and 3, while great, fall short of 1 and 4 for various reasons (IMO).

I don't think I've ever loved a show more then I do Dexter. This thread is win.

Season 4 was the best, next to the first.

Season 1-2 and 4 are simply amazing. I'm counting down the days until Season 5 starts. I was disappointed by Season 3 though, I thought they were trying to copy what they did in Season 2.

I recently watched seasons 1 through 4 all in one go. I loved it, although I can't say I wasn't expecting Rita's death. I didn't mind anyway, only thing I liked about her character is how she changed Dexter.

I've just started rewatching from Season 1 and it's amazing how you can watch it over and over again.

I think the writers at Showtime did a great job with season finales this year with Dexter, and Californication at least. Which if you haven't watched you should down...'record' a couple well worth your time IMO
