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.
