Dexter (TV show)

Mama Pajama inspired me to write about Dexter one of the best, creepiest shows on TV today.

Jeff Lindsay's first novel, DARKLY DREAMING DEXTER, is the basis for this chilling Showtime original series starring Michael C. Hall (Six Feet Under). Visit to get to know Dexter better and check out the trailer.

Michael C. Hall plays Dexter, a likeable Miami police forensics (blood-spatter) expert moonlights as a serial killer of criminals he believes have escaped justice.

  • Dexter's boat is named Slice of Life.

  • Dexter frequently uses aliases that references Bret Easton Ellis books/movies. These include using Patrick Bateman (the main character from _American Psycho (2002)_ ) when buying tranquilizers and Sean Ellis (reference to both Ellis and Sean Bateman - from The Rules of Attraction (2002)) when seeing a psychiatrist.

Memorable Quote:

Sergeant Doakes: Fuck you.
Dexter Morgan: Okay. Uh, is there something I can - ?
Sergeant Doakes: Yeah, you can get me your fucking analysis on the blood spatter on these killings! You think I'm here to invite you to my nephew's briss?
Dexter Morgan: I didn't know you were Jewish!
Sergeant Doakes: Shut the fuck up and write your report already.

I love this show.

Dexter is the most original character on the tube.

With shows like this, I like paying for tv, it is worth it.

Any chance of Dexter going to Deadwood? Oops Deadwood already had a seriel killer too.
