Just watched the first episode of Dexter.  Wow, what a great show.  I'll enjoy watching it, definitely.

Wow, I've watched the first two episodes so far, and this show is amazing! It's really cool how they can get you to like Dexter even though he portrays a character who is usually a bad guy in most shows. He kinda reminds me of a more intelligent Sylar, but I like him better.
You killed Harry Potter  >:( !!!!!
Yes. Yes I did.

This sounds like a good show interesting concept sounds like it is well written as well it probably wont get shown anywhere outside of Showtime Australia so I wont get to see it unless I resort to somewhat illegal measures.

I love the flashback of Dexter's first kill. I felt bad about the women but then I realized his Dad lived another year because of it.

Sorry.

Although it isn't actually that relevant to the main story.

Anyone know where I can watch this online? I'm using tv links, but the episodes take forever to buffer and it's missing parts.

I love Dexter. Sadly my time has been a bit all over the place so I haven't been able to watch it. It is really a good show though.

not many people i know watch this show, its really underappreciated.

i just love how they make even the most mondane things seem sinister,

watch the video of Dexter getting ready in the morning.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bpyJMfDhdN0

notice the tiny well done details that make you think he is a bit evil or twisted,

the smile after he crushes the bug,
the way he tightly wraps his shoe laces is done in a way as if he had strangles people with wire,
when he puts his top on you see his face pressing against the inside of his top and he is making a sli9ghtly distressed face, like its one of his victims wrapped in his trademark cling film.
when he cuts the fruit and juice sprays out like blood,
tomato sauce on the knife looks like blood.

when i explain those things it sounds stupid but when you wtach it you relaise what i mean.

Just finished the first series... I loved it almost as much as I love Battlestar, if not more maybe. 

Spoiler *maybe*:

Am I the only one who thinks that Dexter isn't actually "evil"?  You'd probably say that the ice truck killer is insane and more damaged than Dexter, but personally I feel that the show (credit where credit is due - the books rather) deals with your average person's psyche.  It's clear with Dexter that he does feel emotion despite what the narrative says, and that he is affected by his relationships with others, but he just doesn't particularly care unless it specifically affects him or impacts his own life in some way, which he describes as him being "dead inside" or "emotionless".
