We had heard a lot about Showtime's tv show, Dexter, but we finally got around to watching it and boy are we glad we did! It is smart, savvy, and though a tad gruesome at times, we've really been enjoying it.
Dexter Morgan works for the homicide department in Miami's police force as a forensic analyst specializing in blood splatters. He is also a serial killer. His adopted father, a legendary homicide detective, recognized Dexter's personality quirks early in life and taught him to cover his tracks and to kill only those that deserve it. So in his spare time, Dexter finds those people that fall through the cracks of the Miami police system and takes care of them his own special way, all while trying to fake his way through a normal life with friends, relatives, and his girlfriend.
Quick vote: This show is not for the faint of heart, but it's really well made.
