So I just got done watching disc 3 of season 1, just 1 episode left, and I have fallen in love with this show. I mean the premise is so unique, not so much in the vigilantism, but in the character Dexter himself. It brings so many interesting premises up, and possible avenues that the show can go in based on the character that it really blows my mind how unique the show is. I mean so often you can wrap a character into a cliche' archetype, that plenty of shows have done, it's just about who does them best. Dexter though is completely new, and because of that all the episodes bring a uniqueness to them, where you don't feel like here's the obligatory flashback episode or what have you. The idea is so original that how everything is viewed is different than the way other shows would approach things.
My only fear has been it seems like through just season 1 they are unraveling so much of Dexter's character that I feared they may hurt to keep things fresh, but nothing but rave reviews of season 2, so I'm really pumped about it.
I love this show
