Dexter Season 1

Because my TV shows are on summer hiatus, I started watching a new show, Dexter. I just finished the first season. Laura bought it for me as a Christmas present, and I saved it for the summer. Dexter is a one-hour drama on Showtime in which Michael C. Hall plays a serial killer. That was all I knew about the show before I decided to watch it. Well that, and it is supposed to be really good. And it came through for me.

Dexter works for the police as a blood splatter expert. He analyzes blood splatter and recreates the crime. It goes hand in hand with his "hobby" as a serial killer. He kills only murderers who get away or will get away. Also, Dexter is more than just a serial killer. He has many levels that are slowly peeled away in each episode. He calls himself a monster and believes it is his nature to kill. He hates himself for it. You learn a lot about him and what made him what he is. The show is really gruesome see a lot of blood, guts, dead people and body parts. Yuck. I lose my appetite when watching the show. However, that didn't stop me. I kept watching and just made sure not to snack at the same time.

Tara tried to make me watch these, but after watching one episode, I returned the DVDs to her. How can you relate to a character that likes to cut people open? It's freaky.

Yeah, it is definitely not everyone's cup of tea. But Tina, you need to diversify...and get away from kid shows. Bazinga!
