Celluloid Diaries: What is your favorite Dexter season so far?

What is your favorite Dexter season so far?

Dexter Morgan

It may have taken me six years, but Dexter... I totally get it now.

When my screenplay A Good Man came out in April this year, many reviews drew comparisons with Dexter. My curiosity was aroused. My dad giving me the complete series in July made me decide to give it a try.

Now I'm hooked. I saw four seasons in two months and I hope to get through the last two installments before season seven begins September 30.

So? What are the similarities between Dexter and A Good Man?

Well, they are both about murderers with a conscience - Dexter Morgan being the serial killer who wipes out criminals and Louis Caron being the vampire who eats the unhappy ones.

Another similarity is the focus on the killers' relationships and emotional issues. Both men would sacrifice anything for people who wouldn't love them in return if they knew who they were dealing with.

And there's a little detective story to keep everyone on the edge of their seats.

So... if you like Dexter, but haven't checked out A Good Man, then I suggest you do so now. A Good Man is currently in production, but chances are the movie won't be finished until late 2013. You can already download the screenplay from Amazon and Smashwords.

Which Dexter season is your favorite so far?
My favorite is season 4.

***

Dexter

Louis Caron is a good man. Vegetarian, he feeds the homeless, takes care of animals and is concerned with the ecological future of the planet. But his altruism has a sinister edge – he's a vampire – and local detective Taglioni is becoming increasingly suspicious. Louis' attempt to escape the police will take him on a journey into his own private hell where he is not only forced to confront his own fears, but also to destroy the lives of those he cares about most.

  2. I loved the first season of Dexter and I continue to love the series although I don't think I've watched all of season 4 yet. I really liked the first two Dexter books, three was just so-so, but 4 was good again. I love that your dad got you all the seasons on dvd- watching a series all at once is so much fun. The Hubs and I got into Alias that way.

  10. I've never seen Dexter, but it could be good. I hope I win your book!

  11. I think season 4 was the pinnacle of the series so far, with big cliff hangers and a sloppy Dexter who was on the verge of being discovered once or twice. And the twist with Arthur Mitchell was simply brilliant. Killing off Rita at the end of season 4 was a total game changer.

  12. I haven't watched Dexter yet. The book I'm writing is also about a serial killer only she has no memory of the deaths. I though Dexter might be intriguing to watch!
    THANKS for the giveaway!!

  30. The 1st season was magical for me! I'd been a fan of the Dexter books by Jeff Lindsay for years. When I heard they were doing the TV series I was worried they were gonna screw it up, but after watching the first episode -- Michael C. Hall totally NAILED it!

    Thanks for the amazing giveaway!

    I LOVE Dexter. Hubby and I just finished Season 5,which, although good, was definitely not my favorite. My favorite seasons are :
    1 -- obviously first season I watched. Hubby became addicted and enjoyed the show more than he thought. I told my brother, a psychiatrist, about the show and he was skeptical about the concept of an introspective serial killer and held out. But somebody recently lent him the DVD's and he loves the show.

    4 -- enjoyed watching Dexter as family man and John Lithgow as the "Trinity Killer" was brilliant.

  58. My husband and I love Dexter! We haven't watched season 5 and 6 yet but are really looking forward to it, especially with the way season 4 ended! I'd have to say my favorite is between season 1 and 4. Thanks for the giveaway!
