Link here to Imdb and oficial site of the show.

Did any of you watched it? Just aired its 6th episode, season 01. I found it amazing (no, its not airing in Brazil yet but...yeah... [Wink] ).

The dry humor and irony are so pervasive, and Dexter, albeit a monster, is almost...likeable. [Evil Laugh]

I love it to pieces. No pun intended. Well, not much of a pun intended. I've been tempted to go and read Darkly Dreaming Dexter, the book the show is based on, but I'm afraid of spoilers.

Same thing, Lisa. Already located a local bookstore where I could buy "Darkly Dreaming Dexter", but I don't know how closely inspired in the book this series is. So, I'm also afraid of spoilers.

The opening is superb!

It's a little long, but it's definitely cool.

"Darkly Dreaming Dexter" was a great read. I don't get Showtime, so I'll have to wait for the DVDs to come out on this one. Therefore I can't say how close the show is to the tone of the book. The book was delightfully witty. Its told in the first person from Dexter's POV and he has a very dark and funny sense of humor. There is a sequel too. The author is Jeffrey Lindsay.

Bumping this thread for the current season. I am catching up by watching Season 1 online.

I watched all of season 1 over the course of a few days. Season 2 is looking great so far. My wife can't watch it (too gory), but I'm loving it. (alone)

So I am in the middle of season 1 now and I noticed some music that occasionally plays that reminds me of Magic Bus. Anyone else notice that?

This show has intriqued me. I'll have to rent the first season on DVD.

They have nudity in this show? Oh, it's on showtime.
