No Regrets, Just Love: Dexter.



Anyone who knows me knows that if you show me a picture of Michael C. Hall, I will squeal and get excited. That's because he plays the main character on one of my favorite shows, Dexter.

The premise of the Dexter is a bit hard to take in: our "hero" here is Dexter Morgan - a blood splatter (make sure you remember the "l" that's in there) analyst for the Miami-Dade police department. That's his day job - by night (or whenever he feels like it, really) he's a serial killer. But wait wait before you get all =O, he only kills bad people. See, he's helping us out - getting rid of the bad guys that slip through the cracks of the justice system. 

I've been watching this show since it started, which would be about seven years ago. A few seasons in, I started to read the books (written by Jeff Lindsay) - which are absolutely wonderful as well. Although the books don't follow the same story lines as the television series, and there's multiple character changes and things of that nature.


One of the many gems this show has going for it is Debra Morgan - Dexter's sister, who's a lieutenant in the same police department Dex is. She's a foul mouthed, takes no shit, ball busting badass that has her own issues that make the show even more awesome. 



Isn't she just lovely?

Throughout all seven seasons of it, Dexter has always kept me on the edge of my seat. Very few shows have that affect on me. There are so many twists, turns, and just outright WTFs in every single season, and I love it. The world loves me, and decided to start the eighth season early this year, with it premiering on June 30th (it usually starts in late September). Sadly, though, the last time I checked, this upcoming season will be its last. I'm probably gonna end up crawling into the fetal position in a dark corner somewhere when that happens, I just know it. But what I can look forward to is the series going out with a bang - an even harder bang than all seven of it's season finales have been. And THAT'S a big bang to look forward to.

What television season premieres are you looking forward to?
