Aah Dexter Morgan, everyone's favourite serial killer. If you think his face looks familiar, Michael C. Hall used to play that gay funeral home director in Six Feet Under. I still can't believe I watched all six seasons of the wretched show. Anyway this show is about Dexter Morgan, a charismatic blood spatter analyst who works in the forensics at the Miami Metro Police Department. On the outside, Dexter seems like the perfect guy - he has a sister, Debra, that adores him and a steady girlfriend, Rita, with two kids that look up to him. However, what they don't know is that Dexter moonlights as a serial killer, only he isn't your typical killer. Basing his life on the teachings of his foster father, Dexter only kills people who truly deserve it: he ensures that those who got away with horrible crimes will never kill again.
Season 1 tells of the hunt for the ice-truck killer who kills women, mostly prostitutes, drains their blood dry and cut them into tiny little pieces. The ice-truck killer was actually Dexter's biological brother Ryan who like Dexter turned into a serial killer following their mother's brutal murder. When Ryan tried to make Dexter kill Debra, he killed his big brother instead making it look like a suicide.
In season 2 the Miami-Metro police dept accidentally stumbled into a few dozen cut up bodies in garbage bags in the ocean which were Dexter's lifetime of handy work. His colleague Sargent James Doakes succeeded in tracing the murder back to Dexter but Dexter's new but mentally unsound girlfriend Lila managed to finish him off before Dexter get to figure what to do with him. In the end Dexter also kills Lila because of her violent tendencies.
Season 3 saw Dexter finally tying the knot with his long time girlfriend and mother of 2, Rita who was pregnant with their child. Dexter somehow befriended a prominent assistant District Attorney, Miguel Prada. They became so close that he eventually found out about Dexter's after hours hobby and tried killing a man himself just for kicks. Miguel got carried away with his newfound past time and started to kill more people. Dexter decided to stop the monster he helped created by killing Miguel in the end.
In season 4, Dexter, Rita and their 3 children moved to a new neighborhood. Dexter struggles to balance his new role as parent and work. An veteran serial killer called the Trinity killer (because he kills in 3s) showed up in town and Dexter managed to track him down and befriends him. In the end Dexter succeeded in killing the Trinity killer (as always) but comes home one night to find his wife Rita dead in a pool of blood in their bath tub.
Season 5 is currently airing halfway through in the U.S but I'd rather wait till the season finishes before watching them at TV Shack. There's no way any local TV station is going to show Dexter here anytime soon so the only place you can see Dexter is from the Internet. Go on and watch Dexter, I'd highly recommend it. Just don't get carried away with all the killings okay.
