Dexter Season 4 recently started. I saw the premier only yesterday, but that means I’ll be catching up for the new third episode tonight! Dexter is pretty much officially my favorite current TV series. It’s extremely well-written and the acting and story lines are always pleasing. I know there’s a lot of people out there who haven’t seen it. This is a show which is predominantly spread via word-of-mouth by a very excited fan base. In fact, Dexter fans seem truly unique in their devotion of the series, and for good reason. This is a once-in-a-decade kind of a show, easily.
Dexter doesn’t seem like the type of TV I would really be interested in, and I think that’s really a testament to just how generally it excels. My favorite TV series before Dexter was Babylon 5 with Millennium close behind. I never imagined I’d find a show about a serial killer forensic blood spatter analyst more engaging.
I first found out about Dexter from a coworker a few years back, who like a true TV evangelist talked me into giving it a chance. Unfortunately, I had reached a level of near apathy in regards to TV, and she had to reveal a whole lot of the plot-line for me to finally realize the potential of this series. Once I caught the first episode, I too become a Dexter convert, and did my best to spread the good word of this great show.
So, in my capacity as a devotee, I’d like to invite readers to check this series out if they have not already. I won’t try to talk you into it by revealing the various surprises, and twists and turns that make this series so unique and engaging, but what I will do is point you to the website: Dexter on HBO. You can actually watch the season 4 premiere on here for free, but I really suggest you consider starting at season 1. Season 4 is looking good, but it’s worth the wait, to have all the background on Dexter.
If you’ve found yourself put off by the decline in good TV like I have, give Dexter a chance. You will be glad you did.
Dexter fans, are you excited about season 4?
