Due to a political conspiracy, an innocent man is sent to death row and his only hope is his brother, who makes it his mission to deliberately get himself sent to the same prison in order to break the both of them out, from the inside.
Dexter Morgan, Miami Metro Police Department blood spatter analyst, has a double life. When he's not helping the Homicide division solving murders, he spends his time hunting and killing bad guys that slip through the justice system. He spends his sun-drenched days solving crimes - and moonlit nights committing them. But not to worry, our cool-blooded Dexter doesn't kill just anyone. He reserves his homicidal hobbies to taking only the lives of other killers. Written by

Dexter is the only character on the show to never date a co-worker. All of the other primary characters have dated co-workers / colleagues or people they worked with in some capacity. His father Det. Harry Morgan dated his criminal informants (prior off-screen). His sister, a detective, Debra, dated Detective Quinn and Agent Lundy. Det. Angel Batista dated Lt. LaGuerta and undercover Officer Barbara Gianna. Lead CSI Vince Masuka dated his intern Ryan Chambers. Lt. LaGuerta showed a romantic interest in Dexter during the first season, often flirting with Dexter, but it privately annoyed him and nothing more became of it. It could be alluded to that Dexter preferred not to get intimate with anyone he worked with. See more »
The opening sequence in every episode shows Dexter doing his morning routines. First, he shaves and then he fixes breakfast. But at breakfast, he always has long stubble. See more »

HBO Actors, HBO Directors, HBO Writers, and Showtime's willingness to take risks that HBO might not see as profitable these days (Carnivale + Deadwood R.I.P.) make for a killer combination in "Dexter," the new Sho Comedy/Drama about a Serial Killer Killing Serial Killer (you read right). In my opinion, Showtime has always had a hard time producing an original series that's truly original and good, so it's incredibly refreshing to see the network pull such a "Hail Mary" move and come out on top. "Dexter" is, without spoiling anything, an excellent vehicle for Michael C. Hall, and explores the inner monologue of a Serial Killer in a way that has never been approached before without seeming too predictable or hokey. Watch it and you will not be disappointed. You'll even want to watch the next episode, which says a lot considering the network. I just hope they don't screw it up.
