    Just FYI, the first book was pretty good, the second book was okay, and the third book went off the rails into the supernatural.

    Also, some very critical people in the show are not present in the later books. No spoilers, but that's the best I can explain it.

    I'm very excited for season 5
    Spoiler for season 4
    Last season John Lithgow performance was great.

    Never read the books but I'll probably get to them when the show ends,

    It's tonight! Can't wait. That show is awesome, and I can't wait to see what happens after the events of the season 4 finale.

    I think Dexter is the best series I´ve ever watched. It´s intriguiging in the fact that I´m constantly trying to imagine what it would be like to be a psychopath like him. And the fact that he tries so hard to be ´normal´ makes him almost adorable.

    so, what did everyone think of the premier?
    i think it will be a good season, but i think it will be hard to top 4. after not liking 2 as much as the 1st and almost despising 3 i had low hopes for 4, but i was proven wrong, so who knows, i might like this best [​IMG]

    I am kinda iffy about the new season's first episode.. it started off bad, then got interesting, then strayed off into mediocre.
    Hopefully it gets back into the rhythm next week

    My friend kept telling me to watch it so I "obtained" Seasons 1-4 and I'm on Season 4 right now. Absolutely fantastic show.

    Season 3 was probably the weakest so far and my favorite has to be probably Season 1. I just love it. It's like part CSI, part American Psycho, all awesome. Character development is really good here and the mind games between characters are really good. Only thing that annoys me is a few subplots they layout that don't really have any relevance to the main story and don't really come back again.

    Told the wife she couldn't watch the opener till she finished the last season last ep first.

    Last ep did NOT amuse her, but yeah I was a bit bummed too.

    I have seen 5 01 and 02 thus far as I type. Same excellent writing as always (the show I refer to I have read no books).

    I consider Dexter to be about the best TV show I have seen in decades. It keeps you coming back.

    Quinn seems to be making himself the same pain in Dexter's ass that Doakes was, which could lead to similar character dynamics.

    I doubt it will go the way that Doakes led to. Quinn got in Dexter's case both season 3 and 4, but he is starting to dig around too. Who knows.

    For the record, im glad doakes
