Quote
Plot: Season 1
Orphaned at the age of three and harboring a traumatic secret, Dexter (Michael C. Hall) was adopted by a Miami police officer who recognized his homicidal tendencies and taught him to channel his gruesome passion for human dissection in a "constructive" way—by killing only heinous criminals (such as child molesters, mob assassins, and serial killers of the innocent) who have slipped through the justice system. To satisfy his interest in blood and to facilitate his own crimes, Dexter works as a blood spatter analyst for the Miami police. Although his drive to kill is unflinching, he is easily able to emulate normal emotions and keep up his appearance as a socially-responsible human being. He is well-liked by most of his colleagues, his girlfriend, and her children.

It's gonna start here in Finland tonight... all I've heard is good stuff so I'm gonna tune in and check it out. The premise sounds like it could bring some interesting twist into the stale bulk of forensics-tv stuff that's oh so popular right now.

I bought season 1 on dvd today, I absolutely love it! I find it hilarious that a show takes place close to where I live  XD

I wish more people would watch it, I don't want it to follow the same pattern as other really great things that were on Showtime (Dead Like Me, anyone?  :'()

very nice, would like to get the dvd show where the main character is a serial killer, who kills heinous criminals, who also works part time as blood analyst for the police.

its a really good series.  I just heard about it recently too, and i went through season 1 in 2 days.  Season 2 just started recently, i think its on episode 3.  Its on Showtime, i think.  I watch it on TMNOnDemand, here in Canada =)  DVD season 1 recently came out.

Im gonna cop the books too.  People say the books are much better, as usual. 
The books are Darkly Dreaming Dexter, and Dearly Devoted Dexter.  There's a 3rd book came out on sept 18, 2007 called Dexter In The Dark

Dexter is the best tv-series I have watched for a while. I hope the second season can do as well as the first one.

tv series is based on the books.  Season 1 is based on the first book, and i'm guessing season 2 is based on the 2nd one.

Season 2 so far does not disappoint =)  Except i'm finding "Emily Rose" kinda annoying now

A topless shower scene & no tits! lol. DEXTER IS THE BEST SHOW ON TV.(right now) inside that head of a serial who only kills bad guys? freakin brilliant. I don't like that dexter is becomeing more humane either. if he is not a killer anymore that the whole show is just another friggin cop show, just with deb and her boyfriends.
