After the first two seasons of the show being so amazing I came into he third season with very high expectations. That being said this season definitely had me on edge but I didn't feel the excitement that I did with the other seasons.
Couldn't stop watching this show, was hooked!
Not as good as the last 2 seasons but still pretty good
while still astonishing this season fails to live up to the greatness of the first 2 but is stunning in its own right
took a bit to get as exciting as the previous seasons, but still amazing. also wasn't a fan of the storyline with deb and her new love interest. not sure if it's the only reason but i don't like the guy (about 2 viewings)
In my opinion this was the worst of all the first 7 seasons of Dexter. Dexters new friendship was uncomfortable and forced throughout the entire season, but Dexters relationship with Rita definitely saves the season. The suspense is minimal and it is just a poor follow up to one of the top two seasons in this series. Not a terrible season, but not great either. Just eh.
Dexter Season 3
Dexter season three is significantly less entertaining to watch as a viewer compared to seasons one and two of Dexter as it fails to find the rhythm it carried so graciously throughout the first two seasons. Dexter season three is filled with disappointment and lost opportunity as the shows central idea begins to lose its luster. New characters fail to truly develop throughout the season and are left as the same flat characters as they began with.
The idea of a character who is a serial killer who also works as a forensic scientist for the Miami Metro Police Department is a genius idea. A character who finds joy in murdering people, slowly and painfully, but only kills those who are criminals themselves, is completely original. Showtime really struck gold deciding to create a TV show around Dexter Morgan. Season one and two have such an exciting feel to them, viewers are still trying to figure out who Dexter Morgan really is and why he does what he does. Season three, however, becomes lackluster the same way Star Wars has after the sixth movie. Viewers know who Dexter Morgan is and what makes him tick, season three doesnt develop him as a character at all except getting his girlfriend pregnant and deciding to marry her because she is pregnant.
There are a few things Dexter season three has done very well, better than either of the other seasons - cinematography. Season three does a beautiful job using lighting and other key elements to provide details to the show without having to use dialogue to explain them. Dexter Morgan is often times shot with side lighting when talking to other characters to show how he is hiding something from them - possibly the fact that hes a serial killer. Dexter is shot like this in conjunction with eye line matches between characters for most conversations, which is nothing special, most shows are typically filmed this way. Non-diegetic thoughts from Dexter Morgans brain build irony as Dexter often times makes jokes about his unsuspecting coworkers. Season three, unlike the storyline, has found perfect rhythm in how it is filmed. Transitions between scenes feel fluid and smooth compared to the first two seasons which felt a bit clunky. Establishing shots after settings switch to new locations are very organic and definitely help the show maintain its flow. Flashbacks in the first two seasons had extremely high contrast shots that looked heavily dated are now streamlined. Overall the filmmakers of this show have found their niche in the filming style they use and have perfected how to show emotions and develop characters by cinematic elements alone.
Another strong season. The domestic side of Dexter is just as interesting as the darker side of Dexter and watching him being a father should feel cold but is quite charming. Although not matching the high bar of the 2nd season this is still a strong season.
This season has a good moments but it's just not what I wanted 6/10
Not gonna lie but compared to season 1 and 2 this one was a little forgettable but it still has Michael C. Hall doing what he does best. Being Michael C. Hall!
