Dexter Morgan, Miami Metro Police Department blood spatter analyst, has a double life. When he's not helping the Homicide division solving murders, he spends his time hunting and killing bad guys that slip through the justice system. He spends his sun-drenched days solving crimes - and moonlit nights committing them. But not to worry, our Dexter doesn't kill just anyone. He reserves his homicidal hobbies to taking only the lives of other killers. Written by ahmetkozan

Dexter Morgan: We have an elephant in the room, and its name is Sex.
Rita Bennett: [laughs weakly] Tell me about it.
Dexter Morgan: Hey, as far as I'm concerned, it can just stay in the corner and mind its own damn business.
Rita Bennett: [softly] Easier said than done.
Dexter Morgan: Yeah,
[gently brushes her hair back]
Dexter Morgan: but it needs to be right, for both of us, or it won't be right for either of us. I don't want that. Do you?
Rita Bennett: No. You know, I can't believe I found the one good truly decent man left on the planet.

Like the ethereal guitar music, the show, the characters, the camaraderie between the siblings n the surrealistic n poignant finale episode will stay on ur mind.
30 August 2020 | by Fella_shibbySee all my reviews

Been on my radar for more than a decade. Jus finished watching all the 96 episodes in 30 days on Amazon Prime. It ain't a record but the addiction with the character Dexter made it possible for me n the other factor is the lockdown. The character Dexter is a lovely manipulator wher he acts accordingly to the situation. A true psychopath. This series will make u ask q whether the character is truly living a double life of that of a serial killer n that of a family man working for the Miami homicide department as a forensic expert. Although some of the scenes r far fetched, the series is very intriguing n captivating n that is only cos of the character Dexter played very well by Michael C Hall. Many fans were upset at the finale episode but i think the conclusion is fair. The finale stayed with me for days. It is surrealistic n poignant. It may haunt fans of Dexter Morgan. The ethereal guitar music, the double life of Dexter, the dark humor, the camaraderie between the siblings n the talking of Dexter with his dead father is amazingly done. The dark humor is hilarious. Ther were times that during murder scenes i was laughing n my wife was kinda wtf. E.g. A serial killer known as Tooth Fairy labels Dexter a sick mother*ucker. Also when Dexter praises the same killer regarding his act near a cop's/attorney's house n the reply of the killer is hilarious. The finale episode of the 4th season came as a shock. Cudnt believe my eyes. Thot mayb it is jus a dream. Check out Christina Cox as the villainous cop, one helluva hot babe.
