"Dexter fix"


He has been keeping our primetime viewing entertaining and fun for the last two weeks. I didn't want to go to bed without a "Dexter fix". This is my DIL's fault. He lent Jeff a copy of Dexter while I was in the Philippines. The first thing Jeff wanted to do when we came back was to watch Dexter. I am actually talking about an American TV series about Dexter Morgan, a forensic blood spatter analyst for the Miami Police Department, who also happens to be a serial killer in his free time. Interesting...that was what I thought when Jeff first told me about the story plot. I've always liked to read books about crime thrillers and my choice of DVD movies to watch includes suspense and thrillers as well. Of course I get scared so easily but I find the suspense thriller movies exciting to watch. As a matter of fact, the last Netflix movie we watched together was Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead. It kept me on the edge of my seat right up to the end.

While Dexter belongs to the thriller genre, it's not your typical "chased by some kind of an inbred mutant cannibals in the jungle" type of a show. It's a very well-crafted story, with substance and with engrossing characters to watch. After seeing the first 2 episodes from Season 1, I got hooked! I can't seem to get enough of Dexter. When we finished watching all 12 episodes of Season 1 in 4 DVDs, I was disappointed because I wanted so bad to get a hold of Season 2 DVDs. It wouldn't be until next weekend that we get to visit Dad again so we could also borrow more of his Dexter collection. Luckily, I remember we had Netflix membership. Voila! We instantly watched Episode 1 of Season 2 on my laptop last night. Sweet! I didn't have to wait for a week after all.

Yes Jenn, Dexter is really nice and we started watching it year 2007. Winn was the one who got addicted to it. He likes Dexter Morgan, he even say while watching, kill the bastard, Dexter! So kakaloka! I should save to buy the complete DVDs of Dexter. You can watch it at Showtime on Sunday

ah Dexter... he's socially stupid but manages to get off from tight situations by being ambivalent. naghulat ko's season 4... hehehe... season 3 was great with that mexican prosecutor, but i didn't quite like the outcome. not that i don't like series itself, but the outcome of the story. hehehe...

I have seen only the first 2 seasons..and I got addicted to all the episodes. I loved it when he almost got caught, and yet, he got away with it.. Dexter is pretty interesting.
