I subscribe to Netflix.com, which allows me to see a lot of TV shows that I didn't see on TV, once they come out on video. My curiosity led me to rent the first season of "Dexter." I just finished watching the first four episodes and I have to say that I really like this show. I think I'm going to subscribe to Showtime just so that I can keep up with season two, which starts in a few days.
Dexter is a serial killer who works for the police as a forensic blood spatter specialist. I'm not sure what I expected. I didn't know much more than that when I started watching. I guess I expected more violence and blood, but there wasn't much. That's good. It means they're not counting on graphic violence to sell the show. They're using the characters and plot lines to sell it. So far, imho, it's working. I'm looking forward to receiving the next disk with the next four episodes.
