Dexter

So, has anyone watched this series? I've seen the previews, just never been able to watch it. My brother has the complete first season on DVD and he just dropped it off here at work for me.

Is it worth my time?

Yes, it's a great show (on Showtime or DVD). If you like dark humor, it's fun to watch and I highly recommend it. The prime time version on CBS is heavily sanitized and you lose a lot of the best parts. I wouldn't waste my time with it.

The show is based on the book: Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay which is a great read in itself.

I've watched the 'sanitized' CBS version. I kind of like it - it beats the 'reality shows'. I have a hard time with the police chief(black gal) - Tuddy from the 80's - 'Facts of Life' Show.

I have bought a few episodes off of itunes. It is a good show. I want to check out the dvd's. I agree that CBS has 'sanitized" it.

It seems well written. Working with criminals all day and seeing what the victims have to endure makes this a little more interesting for me. Check it out. I think you will enjoy it, Rubigoddess.

My wife love it but we don't get showtime anymore and she doesn't like the network rebroadcast because of the removal of the language. The way he talks makes the character.

Did they completely cut out his sister in the CBS version? I don't remember a single sentence that came out of her mouth that would play in prime-time.

I just started watching this on CBS and yes it does beat reality TV. Even though it's the cleaned up version; I still really like it and has sold me on renting the DVD's sometime for the good version. At least on the CBS version it's sorta commical when they sub in a "clean" word for some cussing. "You flipping son of a beast!" Okay it's not that bad. haha

I would recommend for sure!

OMG, i posted one about my son's little league! Sheesh!!!

So, I could ad a little something to this if that would make you happy!

I watched the very first episode from showtime last night. It was.........interesting. The cut up doll in the fridge was a bit uhm, distrubing. I liked it! I think I'll continue on with the mission!
