Dexter

Critics Consensus

Its dark but novel premise may be too grotesque for some, but Dexter is a compelling, elegantly crafted horror-drama.

Critic Reviews for Dexter: Season 1

Audience Reviews for Dexter: Season 1

  • Jan 15, 2023
    Very nice first season but the later decline comes also from this first season, the brother shouldn't have appeared that early in the series, the premise with Dexter killing and working cases, the team at the police... would have been enough for at least 2 seasons. I watched the series after the original run, when Dexter-New Blood came out.
  • Jan 15, 2023
    The season was definitley unique and entertaining but for some reason inspite of the suprises it failed to keep my intrest after episode 8. I hope that season 2 and on will be better.
  • Jun 21, 2022
    One of the best show ever i have watched. Dexter is character which makes you dive into his world with lot's of twist and turn. Which gives you edge of the seat experiance. Totally loved the show ❤️
  • May 19, 2022
    This is a very entertaining series twisting and turning to the big finalle...the character of Dexter is created wonderfully and Michael C Hall does a grand job
  • Jan 29, 2022
    Watched all 8 seasons in less than a month. Love this show just wish the ending went differently, I really wanted to see Dexter & his new fam in Argentina, Deb dying was sad enough :(
  • Jan 17, 2022

  • Jan 08, 2022
    The foundation of dexter is layed and your hooked from the first minute...some of the sharpest television
  • Jan 07, 2022
    Not for me but! But from a professional point of view it's films very well just not for me
  • Dec 15, 2021
    A great start to the series that's also a phenomenal stand-alone season. You know Dexter's a bad guy, but you still want him to succeed.
  • Dec 03, 2021
