Dexter: The Complete Final Season

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 11/10/13

This has been my favorite show for quite a while now. I just love everything about it. Michael C. Hall is so gorgeous, and everyone in the cast does a great job. It's a black comedy as well as a drama, a cop thriller, and sometimes a tragedy. Dexter is a vigilante, but he's more like Batman than a killer, in many ways. I've particularly enjoyed watching Dexter's humanity grow and improve over the years.

I also enjoy seeing Dexter with different women (although they seem to have toned down the sex on the show over the years, which I'm not sure is a good thing). Hannah was great, although I still miss his wife, Rita. I didn't like when they killed her off.

I'm glad they didn't put Deb and Dexter together this season because that was just too icky. I'm sure I'm not the only one that is relieved about that. However, I'm sure everyone knows by now about the Dexter finale. I didn't think it was terrible. Sure, I didn't like that they killed off a major character, but otherwise I thought it worked out pretty well.

Personally, I would have had Dexter have a more happy ending, but that's just me. I enjoy a happy ending. That's just not the way "Dexter" works, though.

This is a great set to have and has MANY features, including Michael C. Hall talking about the season and about directing one of the episodes.  The DVD has a long list of extras, including the first 2 episodes of "Ray Donovan" and some of the bonus features of that show.

My only problem with these DVD features is that none of them are closed-captioned. This is almost always true, though. I wonder why? It makes it hard to watch sometimes. Otherwise, though, it's a good DVD set to own.
