To all around him, Blood splatter analyst Dexter Morgan appears to be a perfect gentleman and respected member of the police force but, behind this convincing facade, Dexter harbours a terrifying secret. He is a serial killer.

Orphaned at the age of four, Dexter (Michael C. Hall) was adopted by Miami police officer Harry Morgan (James Remar), after finding him abandoned at a particularly gruesome crime scene. Discovering that Dexter had murderous urges, Harry taught the natural born killer to channel his gruesome passion in a constructive way - to kill only those who 'deserve' it! By means of satisfying his interest in blood and to erase his own crimes, Dexter now works as a forensic expert in blood patterns for the Miami Dade Police Department: the department currently investigating a spate of victims fallen at the hands of an unknown murderer branded `The Ice Truck Killer'. Discovering that the city's slayer is provocatively leaving personal messages for him to pick up, Dexter begins to wonder if `The Ice Truck Killer' is closer to him than first thought.

Emmy-Award winning screenwriter James Manos Jr. (The Sopranos) delivers a dark, engrossing, yet funny adaptation of Jeff Lyndsay's crime novel Darkly Dreaming Dexter. Forefront of its shining cast is Michael C. Hall who takes complete control of Dexter and provides us not only with a clear insight into the mind of a serial killer but also forces the audience to grapple with the wonderfully twisted moral ambiguity of having a serial killer as a likeable `hero'.

This incredible first season of 'Dexter' stars Michael C Hall in the title role and how well he plays it.Dexter Morgan is a blood splatter analyst for the Miami Police Depertment however secretly at night he disposes of the cities worst criminals!The series combines sheer terror with dark humour and Hall's performance really conveys that.Unlike other tv shows this only has 13 episodes but with the way the story goes that is about right.The supporting cast are fantastic including Jennifer Carpenter as Dexters' foster sister Deborah,James Remar as his influenyial adoptive father Harry and Erik King arguably steals the show as Dexters' nemesis SGT Doakes. A truly great start to a fantastic show

This was reccomended by a friend of mine due to my love of the show csi, and i was not disappointed!
The story and actual theme of the show are very clever, dark and totally compelling. You just keep wanting to watch!
The acting is top notch, and lets you easily form bonds with the characters.
Definatly one to watch.

 Dexter morgan = the win

Dexter is possibly the greatest programme ive come to find on television, not only did the show itself take a hold on me, it introduced me to the books which are great aswell. Season 2 is so far outstanding, as soon as the uk release of season 1 is out im so buying it :)

 Dexter = Wicked Show

I got into Dexter recently on the recommendation of a friend and am happy to say that it was well worth it. It is based around a crime scene investigator who has a dark personal life as a serial killer, however he uses his 'art' to balance the books of justice and only kills people if they deserve it.
Really refreshing show with a unique plot. It is coming out in the UK on FX Channel in July apparently so keep your eyes open and give it a try...

 One of the Best TV Shows Ever - If not THE best

I envy those of you who are yet to embark on the thrilling story of everyone's favourite serial killer as you have so much to look forward to from this creative, bold and all-round brilliant drama, should you make this purchase.

If you are thinking about buying this for Christmas maybe, or just for yourself, then rest assured that your money will not go to waste on what critically could be the best TV shows of all time, definately in this generation.

Other reviews here clearly let you know a lot more about what its about. I just wanted to provide another reason for you to purchase this.

Being an avid fan, I am currently watching the 5th season which is currently being aired in the states and it still doesn't fail to surprise or keep me totally captivated. The message here being, that this show just keeps delivering despite setting the benchmark high with this brilliant opening season.

Seasons 2 and 3 are also very good, but season 4 is incredible and starting this show with the incentive of getting to season 4 is well worth it. Season 5 has 3 episodes to go as I write, and it's looking like it could topple 4. What you will notice is that the character evolves and this is truly addictive to watch.

I cannot stress much more about how awesome this show is. I'm not one for gore and horror, I don't watch horror movies, but this is a very clever show which any intellectual will enjoy. It's not for the faint-hearted, it's a show for a mature audience, as most youngsters will not understand a lot of the meanings and plots in the show, let alone the swearing and violence. This is aired on Showtime in America which indicates it's nothing like some of the commercial garbage you may get with abc/fox productions. This is brilliant and deserves all its success.
