Of course you will miss part of the experience. That's what happens when you watch a watered-down version of something.
Dexter is easily one of the top 3 shows anywhere right now, maybe even #1 overall. Both seasons are 100% outstanding. If you are going to watch the show(and you should), you owe it to yourself to get the full experience. Every episode is easily available on torrents or elsewhere here on this lovely series of tubes we call the innernets.
Although, I will say this, hearing Doakes and Deb saying "mother lover" and "frick" would probably add a nice bit of humor. At least the first few times anyway. After that, I imagine it will just sorta sound sad.
Sometimes it takes a crazy person to see the truth. If so, I'm a freaking lunatic.
With any TV show these days you can go to google and type "Watch Dexter Online Free." Check out the first 3-4 links and one of them will have every episode of the show online streaming and DIVX quality.
I just watched the 2 seasons over the last two weeks or so. Definitely gets two thumbs up.

Despite being a cable show and considering the subject matter, Dexter is extremely mild. Watching it on DVD would probably be best but I think watching it on TV wouldn't matter much other than the commercials.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Yeah, I will never watch this show because my wife would never dream of watching anything like this, and I don't watch TV by myself.
Visually, it's fairly mild. The killings are always implied. You will see some dead bodies and body parts since Dexter works in forensics but nothing really gruesome. There are no scenes of torture like you see in Saw or Hostel.
