For reals??? Oooo, Dexter is so good!!
It's about a man who's a sociopath attempting to lead an outwardly "normal" life as he follows the code set up by his adoptive father, Harry, who was a cop and trained Dexter in how to temper his urge to kill by using it only on murderers who've gotten away from the law. Hm, that was one heckuva run-on sentence!
In the beginning, Dexter feels like he has no emotions.....but you slowly discover why he is the way he is and so much unfolds from there. The writing of this show is phenomenal, as is the acting. S1 is probably the best written and acted season of any show I've ever seen. And S4 is running a close second!!
It's not a gratuitous show about killing....all I can say is give Season 1 a try.
It's killing me that ep 12 isn't up anywhere yet!!!!
