The lovable serial killer/blood spatter anaylyst with a Code of Ethics (he only kills killers) is back!
This time Dexter makes a friend! It is, unfortunately, Miami Assistant D.A. Miguel Prado, played by Jimmy Smits. Can Dexter keep his secrets but continue his mission? Turns out that A.D.A. Prado has through the years compiled his own hit list, and he enlists Dexter's advice on carrying out his personal vendettas.
Then there is Dexter's domestic situation. Can a secret killer also make a good father and husband? His angelic girlfriend thinks so. But will marriage cramp his style?
Michael C. Hall, who delighted us as the gay undertaker in turmoil in "Six Feet Under" easily slipped into Dexter's shoes. It is sheer pleasure just to watch him act. Another high point of the series is Jennifer Carpenter, who plays Dexter's tomboyish adopted sister Debra, a woman who knows how to speak her mind. In real life Hall married Carpenter in January 2009.
Just a note: don't even THINK of watching Season 3 until you have seen the first two seasons. (And be sure to stick with the first season through at least 4 episodes before passing judgment -- Dexter DOES develop a conscience!)
