Season 2 is the only season of Dexter that I've seen so far, apart from a couple of the final eps of the first, and I thought it was fantastic... I take it I've got stuff to look forward to?
Season one is brilliant, but that's what happens when you just take a great idea from a book and re-write well it for screen.

Oh yeah, they spell it out pretty clearly pretty early on IMHO. I think it was fairly intentional.

Really? I thought Season 2 was by far the worst.
Yeah, I feel like season two is a A LOT more cliche than season one. Though the ending kind of seemed cliche, it was also awesome. but yeah season one was a whole story and arced beautifully etc., already knew where it was going. Season two is a litlte more like TV world where we do things like change our path mid stride to make the network happy.

Yeah that's a little chilche...and makes him too much the lovable higher-powered vigilante and not enough the cold blooded, I just have to kill, socio-path. that's another thing that bothers me about season two. Even like from the first episode where he thinks sex is gross and then they later just forget that. they just keep making him more and more human and less a fucking socio-path, to a certain extent yeah he needs to be fairly human or we don't love him, but they sort of forget that he's a sociopath when it's convenient.
