I guess Elway isn't that uncommon a last name, but curious if the inspiration for "Jacob Elway" was the most famous beholder of that surname.

Love the show but its getting to the point where he could kill someone in front of a handful of cops in broad daylight and not even be a suspect. Love me some Dexter Morgan though, favorite character ever.

It was once a great show. Every since the Trinity Killer season, it's been a big bag of meh.

Last night was good but still lazy writing.

Answer me this, if you can't reach someone's voicemail because it is full, did anyone ever hear of texting that person? I mean, she did have an iphone....nrrr

I fell out of Dexter after the Tninity season. My wife and I couldn't get into the season with Julia Styles. The story seemed really stupid.

Dexter was great, and so was Ray Donovan (which now follows Dexter)...

The catch is that he's killing other criminals. That's the key to sympathy for the character...

I have not seen the season premier, but do like the show overall

However I agree that the writing is quite lazy
It is almost like they come up with ideas for how to create problems for Dexter, but run out of time on figuring how he is supposed to get through it

Season 4 was the best though
I thought last year's was decent, 5 was garbage and 6 was OK but again the writing was pretty bad at times

Last year was a great season for Dexter. So much major **** went down it was unreal. If you've followed Dexter before and have not watched last season you're really missing out big time. I feel it was sort of a big pay off season over the last 2 or 3 years. I don't want to go into details and spoil a bunch of stuff but it was damn epic.

couldn't disagree more.....it was lazy. (writing in code here not to spoil) The forced relationships, which was just pathetic and ruined the dynamic between 2 characters, the ending was equally lame but they painted themselves into that spot. Ray Stevenson rocked though, he was the only saving grace of the season.....and that flower chick.....she was good.

My brother loves this show. He did a marathon of the last season and a half before he went to Wyoming. I think its alright, but I have not seen the first few seasons.

the first season was the only one based (somewhat) off the book and was the best by far. Season 2 and 4 were really good. Everything else was bleh.

My brother said the season with John Lithgow was the best one.

I still need to go back to the beginning. I found Dexter during the season with Tom Hanks' kid. Apparently, that's one of the weaker seasons, and it STILL had me hooked. The previous seasons must be epic...

Ah yeah, Stokes was kick ass. Loved those 2 always going at it. What great about this series is that it's been 8 years. When it's over, you could literally go back and watch again from the beginning and while it would not be completely new, there would still be much of it (the details) that you would have forgotten and it would be quite entertaining.

Oh and for those that said last season wasn't that good, it was the highest rated season of all 7 years and it wasn't even close. Over 6.5 million viewers last year. The Dexter series has shattered Showtime viewing records.

I highly recommend this series to anybody. And I'd start from the beginning.
