    I kept putting it off for years because it just seemed cheesy to me. I finally started binging on it and have made it to season 2:9

    What should expect? When does it fizzle out? I have already had thoughts of moving on.

    For me the good seasons were 1 2 and 4, then it got dumb. 3 wasn't bad, just a little boring.

    Deb is now on Limitless & the other night her boyfriend from Dexter popped up on it too. I was all, "Hey, they're both from Dexter!!" :eek:

    I don't think it got so awful that it bears ditching the series. Still a great show, but if you don't like it, you don't like it. Why sit through it. Personally, I say keep watching.

    There's a very big part of me that wants to spoil the whole shootin' match for you so you can save yourself the time it will take to watch something great turn into something really, really stupid. I'll just say this: hospital boat parking.

    I like it so far just a few rough spots. Over the years i just kept reading negative stuff about it thats why the hesitation.

    I thought season 1 was amazing personally, the problem I had was during each successive season, dexter seems to go from being a cold calculating killer {killing off scum admittedly}, and becomes more human and makes more mistakes. The premise of dexter is amazing I think, a serial killer who kills bad people who don't get real justice in his eyes, I think they could have done much more with it.

    I made that up. There's no such thing as hospital boat parking in Dexter. But you could almost believe something that ridiculous there toward the end of the series.

    It really is no different than any other show with rough spots. At least at this point, you know he'll get out of any tough situations, as the series is several seasons longer. The question and interest is HOW he gets out of them.

    The first episode was great. When he got that child killer, he was cold and calculated with standards. It hooked me there.
