I read the first book a while ago but have never seen the show. Is there anywhere to stream the older ones for free? Hulu only has newish ones and some of the sites I have googled up look like a virus waiting to happen.
To the top. I refused to read this thread because I hadn't seen season 4. Wow is all I have to say.
If you never read the books, do it! They start similar to the show, but it takes a different turn even in book 1. Books 2-5 are totally different and Dexter is even better than the show. He is funnier and darker.
I just finished Season 1 after reading this thread... I'll have to say I'm hooked... I now have Season 2 that I want to get started now... I don't watch a bunch of shows, but kind of got sucked in...It's one of those that the Mrs. wouldn't enjoy (like Spartacus and TrueBlood that I also have just recently caught up on), but it gives me something to do after I get the kids to bed on the evenings that Mrs. Superwade2 is working (about 3-4 nights a week and some weekends). Like tonight...hopping Friday night at the SW2 household...will get kids to bed in the next hour, finish the bottle of Pinot Noir and and flip on a couple episodes of Dexter.
I'll admit the first couple episodes were a little slow, but I powered through and really enjoyed the last 1/2 of the first season...
I named my dog Dex, cause he's a killer! Killed a raccoon! And he is extremely mild mannered, just like Dex. Won't bother you at all, not even to play, just like Dex. Wants to eat... ALL THE TIME, just like Dex. At the dog park he's the one all the other dogs chase around but never catch, just like Dex! And not to mention my black and white living room decor. Dex is black. At night he blends perfectly well with the black couch where he likes to sleep. I tell you... I love the show and I got a dog to match that love.
P.S. Can we get Olmos away from Miami please? Hell, we sent him 150.000 years into the past and thousands of light years away and he managed to find his way back, somehow! Way to go Ed!
