    Dexter tv series "no spoilers"- just opinion on ending

    what was your opinion on the ending?
    I thought it ended terribly.

    how would you have ended it?

    I haven't watched it yet, but considering how shit Dexter has been, I'm looking forward to a hysterically awful conclusion. It'll be my 97% match made in heaven.

    I loved the episode. I feel like the ending could have been done differently. Not sure if there could have been a better one though.

    I liked all the seasons, so I will just be happy you're not in charge of what plays on television. =P

    In all honesty, the show isn't even Dexter anymore. After season 4, that's when it stopped being Dexter.

    I don't know whether to laugh or to scream. Oh my God, that was just so... "bad" doesn't even describe it. There are no words to describe... everything about that finale, about the whole entire season. I hate Dexter. I hate every single episode retroactively, knowing now that it all led to this.



    This is an accurate metaphor for it all. I'm Ron Burgundy, the restaurant owner is the creative team, and the steaming hunk of cat shit is Dexter.

    Likewise, friend. Oh my God, likewise.

    The meaning behind the ending was alright but the way it was executed was fucking disgusting.

    EDIT: Who am I kidding even the meaning sucked ass.

    What got to me the most was that for the past four seasons this show has blatantly tried to appeal to morons by explaining each action Dexter is going to take step by step with the help of terrible narration and a ghost that should have been gone after Season 1 and then they suddenly drop some weird ending with no explanation and expect fans to be okay with it even though half of the fans Dexter has gathered over the past four years don't even know what good TV is.

    Thank Christ this is over.

    i'm relieved it is over. i would have stopped watching a while ago but this is one of the shows i watch together with the old "ball and ball" so i couldn't stop. thank god it is over. the last season was specially horrible.

    every contrived line harrison said about hanna gave me diarrhea… literarily.

    I enjoyed Dexter, all 8 seasons long, happily watched it. The ending was okay in my opinion, the last season was a bit slow in the middle but I still found it very enjoyable. I find it a pity the series is over, it was very long but I didn't mind, all found it enjoyable and fun to watch. I'll miss the show, and I'll miss the 2 amazing wives Dexter had :wub:

    How is a Dexter spin-off staring Michael C Hall not Dexter? Whatever if Scott Buck is involved then it won't work anyway.

    EDIT: “So it would be about lumberjacks then?” a reporter snarked, and Nevins said he wanted questions on a different topic.

    This quote filled me with all kinds of joy.

    the arc leading to the ending over the final few seasons was awful. Season 4 was the best. Goddamn was John Lithgow amazing in that role; never knew he had it in him.

    I felt it was anti climatic. I was like aww really? That's it?

    Anyone know how close the TV series are to the books? Or if the books keep going?

    The series diverges after the first season, I think.
