Default Hello, Dexter Morgan

Is here anyone who loves "Dexter" as much as I do?
The 4th season is airing at the moment, again as exciting and electrifying as ever, the end of the season is near and the showdown between those two Serial Killers is reaching its climax.


For all who don't know Dexter:

I especially like Dexter's inner monologues.
And Dexter's social problems, his lack of knowing how to react correctly in some situations and his lack of being able to "read" social situations. I sometimes have similar problems.

I also love how they play with the emotions of the audience.
On the one hand you really like Dexter and by making his thoughts transparent you get some kind of connection to the Character. Therefore you automatically be on Dexter's side.
But then again there are situations you realize that Dexter actually is the bad guy in this story and not those who e.g. hunt the Bay Harbor Butcher in Season 2.
