All 12 episodes from the first series of the award-winning US drama about a Miami police forensics expert who moonlights as an avenging serial killer. After a traumatic childhood incident, orphan Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) is adopted by a police officer, who soon realises the boy has a homicidal bent. Matching his skills to a worthwhile profession, Dexter is encouraged to join the Miami Police Department as a blood spatter analyst, plotting the gruesome aftermath of murders. Soon, however, the borders of work and play start to blur as Dexter begins dispensing summary justice to those who, in his eyes, have unjustly escaped prosecution. The episodes comprise: 'Dexter', 'Crocodile', 'Popping Cherry', 'Let's Give the Boy a Hand', 'Love American Style', 'Return to Sender', 'Circle of Friends', 'Shrink Wrap', 'Father Knows Best', 'Seeing Red', 'Truth Be Told' and 'Born Free'.
After playing a mild-mannered funeral home director in SIX FEET UNDER, Michael C. Hall makes a smooth transition to serial killer in this original crime drama. But the twist in this smart show is that Dexter chooses to prey only on other serial killers. As a child, Dexter is adopted by a cop (James Remar) who soon realises that his new son is no ordinary boy. Since Dexter is compelled to kill, his law-abiding father pushes him to choose his quarry in a way that will best benefit society. As Dexter grows older, he works as a blood splatter expert in Miami, giving him a close view of other murderers and their handiwork. Stylish and blackly comic, this drama is adapted from Jeff Lindsay's novel DARKLY DREAMING DEXTER. This release includes the entire first series, which largely focuses on Dexter's pursuit of the coldblooded Ice Truck Killer and his own efforts to evade detection.
