Who would have thought after Buffy the Vampire Slayer (BTVS), Angel, Firefly and The West Wing, I'd finally find another television series that I'm completely fascinated by. Dexter. Thanks to A2 I began with season one.. and before I knew it, it had been two days and I needed season two.. and three.

With thanks to wikipedia, Dexter, the television series is: "an American television drama series based on the novel Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay and adapted for television by Emmy Award-winning screenwriter James Manos, Jr., who wrote the pilot episode. Set in Miami, the series centers on Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall), a serial killer governed by an ambiguous moral code who works for the Miami Metro Police Department as a blood spatter analyst."

Dexter Morgan is wonderful! He's an intriguing character with so many facades for development. He's so wonderfully detached, it's almost a dream. I'm not ecstatic that my new favourite fictional character is a murderous serial killer, but he is terribly endearing. He joins the ranks of Spike (from BTVS), Angel (BTVS and Angel), Legolas (Lord of the Rings), Giles (BTVS) and Faith (again BTVS) in my list of all time favourite TV characters.. all of which, aside from Legolas, have a wee bit of darkness within.

I enjoyed the first three seasons of Dexter so much, I went and got the omnibus so I get to say I'll feel less empty until season four begins *hahahahaha* I've made it through the first nine chapters - it's definitely a little darker than the stuff on telly, but it's a page-turner!
