Review of Dexter

"The blood guy" (emotional pinocchio)*

Blood & Donuts. Phony smiles & needle-stabs.
A "monster" with a heart.


The title of this show is the main character for a reason, you know...
Dexter is a bit of a sociopath, trying (well, pretending) to mingle - he sure is disturbed. You know why he is a good man? Because he kills people. Yeah.
Interesting, smart, and quite humorous series about this guy (a forensic blood spatter analyst) that wacks bad guys... and we're the only ones who know it.
He believes he's not really a "real" person with feelings or a heart, but we know better (and he shall find that too in the course of the series).
"I'm like you. - No. No, no, no, no. I *know* I'm a monster."
A monster with a heart - no point in denying it.

Really interesting, well made TV Series, with good actors, a good plot, and of course a Great main character. Dexter does a very insightful - and amusing - voice-over narration. The way Dexter fakes his way through everyday life with phony smiles and good-morning-donuts, mimicking social interactions and feelings, is freaking brilliant.
Well thought, well written, well developed, well filmed, with a nice set of characters.
It's a great, engaging show - if you never watched it, please do.

And one thing I know: it has the best opening credits sequence on TV!
