If the record-setting ratings for Dexter as of late get it extended for another season, or more, that will mark the end of my viewership, because this is one ship I'd rather not go down with.

As long as the Dexter and Deb story continues to be strong, the show will slide into home.

The current season [of] Dexter was going along pretty well for a while. But this week - hoo, boy...I'll tune in next week to see how this plays out, but unlike Dexter, my heart's not really in it.

The series succeeds by being a credible and entertainingly complicated psychological thriller with good characters, a sense of humor and especially a languid rhythm and sun-kissed look that belie the darkness and bloodiness of the stories.

Dexter appears to be, at long last, back on his game.

I feel like the series is ready to stop placating to the lowest common denominator and start showing us exactly how bad things can get for a killer with a conscience.

Surprisingly, the first few episodes of season seven indicate a willingness on the show's part to take some new chances.

Dexter has sucked me back in.

September 30, 2012 Full Review Source: HitFix

The first few episodes of the new season do little to alleviate this longtime fan's feelings that the show should have ended its run before now.

The key players are engaged in ways that prove occasionally shocking and disarmingly funny.

After almost three seasons away from the Showtime drama, I'm back on board, and if you'd given up too, you might want to think about heading back to Miami.

Audience Reviews for Dexter: Season 7

Season 7 of Dexter delivers one of the most compelling story arcs of the series as Dexter and his sister Deb are set on a collision course. Jennifer Carpenter steps up and owns this season, delivering incredibly strong and compelling performances. After discovering Dexter's secret life of as a serial killer Deb tries to break him of his addiction to killing, but is eventually forced into choosing between accepting his killer natural or taking him down. Full of twists and turns, the episode arcs are extremely engaging. And, guest stars Ray Stevenson and Yvonne Strahovski create captivating characters that enrich the show's character dynamics. Dramatic and thrilling, Dexter: Season 7 is a little unconventional but extraordinarily powerful.
