    Fantastic, fascinating, creepy, charming and gruesome.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    It's bold, different and exciting, with a central character and performance that take your breath away.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    Daring and original.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    To deny yourself the engrossing “Dexter” based on its subject matter would be to miss out on one of television’s most fiendishly intelligent new dramas.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Matthew Gilbert

    Fiendishly excellent.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    Sick, twisted and darkly funny, "Dexter" is easily the best drama in Showtime history.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Adam Buckman

    "Dexter" is a proficiently produced crime drama. Its best feature is its star, Michael C. Hall, who applies just the right touch to playing the nice, polite serial killer who lives next door.

  • Paul Brownfield

    From the start, it's mostly on Hall to seduce us, and he's so artful with the material that he consistently elevates it.

    Los Angeles Times Full Review
  • Glenn Garvin

    A perverse pleasure to watch.

    Miami Herald Full Review
  • Alessandra Stanley

    Violence, like deficit spending, is a very American vice. “Dexter” is yet another temptation that is almost impossible to resist.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Jonathan Storm

    One of this season's best new series.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Melanie McFarland

    The series quickly establishes itself as an elegant study in horror.

    Seattle Post-Intelligencer Full Review
  • James Poniewozik

    The morals of this provocative show are as intriguing as its cases.

    Time Full Review
  • Diane Werts

    "Dexter" knows what it's doing, and savors its skill immensely.

    Newsday Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Enjoyably challenging TV.

    Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Full Review
  • Mike Duffy

    Dexter is... one of the most compelling new characters on TV.

    Detroit Free Press Full Review
  • Adam Sternbergh

    Dexter treats extreme violence much in the same way that GoodFellas did: as something horrifying, intoxicating, seductive and thrilling, all at the same time.

    New York Magazine (Vulture) Full Review
  • Barry Garron

    Hall... is brilliant at conveying the subtle complexity of Dexter.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Bill Goodykoontz

    There are reasons not to like Dexter, but thanks to Hall's winning portrayal and the cool, creep-out idea, it's almost impossible not to.

    Arizona Republic Full Review
  • Charlie McCollum

    I won't pretend "Dexter'' is for everybody. If you wince during scenes on "CSI,'' the series isn't for you.... But if you like the idea of a very good show that wrestles each week with moral dilemmas and the nature of good and evil, "Dexter'' is just the thing.

    San Jose Mercury News/Contra Costa Times Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    A good drama but an average psychological study.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Robert Abele

    Dexter is too chilly to be chilling, too affected to be affecting.

    L.A. Weekly Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    If brilliant, psychotic lunatics are your bag, by all means, climb aboard.

    Variety Full Review
  • Nancy DeWolf Smith

    The grotesqueries of "Dexter" are not something that can easily be dismissed with the old "you don't have to watch" line. We don't have to watch. We do have to live among the viewers who will be desensitized, or aroused, by this show.
