OUR FAVORITE SERIAL KILLER

13 Oct

***HEY, BEFORE WE START WITH THIS…. THIS IS A REVIEW MADE BY MY VERY GOOD FRIEND CATALINA, SHE IS YOUNG NEW FILMAKER THAT LOVES TV AS MUCH AS I DO AND I HOPE YOU LIKE WHAT SHE HAS TO SAY****

I don’t know if you remember the series “Six feet under” where Michel C. Hall played one of the brothers of the funeral house that was also gay. NOW, He is another series that deals with death as one of the main ingredients. Now a days he is known as television’s favorite serial killer; that’s right, this series makes you love a psychopath. Dexter started on 2006 on Showtime and has had many good reviews from critics and viewers alike, including me, who can honestly say it’s my favorite series right now.

For those who don’t have a clue about the series, here’s a quick summary: Dexter was adopted as a child by Harry, a Miami detective and his family. He found him in a container sitting in his mother’s blood after she was brutally murdered. Harry has a daughter named Debra, which is Dexter´s biggest fan… and she is very important to him to; as he says: “if I where to feel anything, it would be for Deb”.  Harry dies before the show starts but fallows Dexter like a conscience or the voice of reason. He was the one that taught Dexter the “code”.  He found out that Dexter was different from a young age and knew that he was a psychopath. The code is basically not to get caught; don’t leave any evidence, dispose of the body’s and only go after criminals that the law didn’t get or even got close to. All of these rules are easy to fallow because he became a Blood Spatter Analyst for the Miami metro police. His halfsister Debra works as a detective for the same office. Every season there’s a big serial killer that is connected to Dexter either by blood or by his “Dark Passenger”, as he calles the darkness inside him. He’s an expert on blending in with the society he doesn’t even understand.

To make a long story short, he is a character that -in spite of all of his defects- you completely adore. Adding to that, technically speaking, the series is very well done, we cheer for the serial killer that is “cleaning society” as some will say; taking the law into his own hands. This series started its 6th season two weeks ago and its super recommended if you like a dark and smart, nail batting story.
