    Count me as a DEXTER fan too.

    Read the first book - highly recommend it. Second book (different than TV series) wasn't my mug of beer.

    Absolutely agree! Given that it is built around the premise of a school teacher cooking meth, I would suggest you need to follow the characters and story from the beginning. Well worth the effort.

    Since I don't have cable, I rented the first season. It followed, but improved upon, the first novel. Having more time, the TV series was able to provide more depth to the characters and added a few twists to the original story. I loved it - but I doubted they could provide that level of quality and storytelling for another season.

    Was I ever wrong. Fantastic show. I've bought them all and I swear each time I've watched them, it's as exciting as the first view.

    Although still better than most shows, IMO Season 5 was the weakest. A few holes in the storyline were conveniently ignored by the writers - but they still provided some exciting and fresh entertainment.

    Keep Smiling, Jan

    Great show! Have all the seasons on dvd, the cookbook, the book that goes into detail about how they made the show...

    That is what we do, too. I don't think I could watch it week to week anymore. We usually rent or buy the whole season and watch it in like 2 days.

    We do this with True Blood also.

    You're so right.
    It's what i do with all series I watch, from Heroes and 24 to Fringe and Lost (of which i haven't seen one single episode yet. I'm waiting for a good Amazon deal...). I never watch anything on tv anymore. At least, no series.

    You are correct. Season 4 was with John Lithgow, 5 had Julia Stiles. And 6 is supposed to have a boatload of new people including Mos Def and Edward James Olmos.
