Watching Dexter

Posted on by Eggy

Currently I'm watching Dexter. It's a show I watched when the first season came out a long time ago with my first ever girlfriend. The thing is when we got to around season 3 or so we broke up, and that left a painful memory for the rest of my life related to the show so I could never finish it without thinking about her. Luckily I'm now older and moved on I'm able to watch it without those feelings being hurtful anymore. 

I love Dexter, it's a show based on psychology that goes very deep into serial killers being numb to normal emotions. That kind of traumatic event when younger can leave visible imprints on the brain forever. What I love about it is the main guy is not a good guy, but he is at the same time. There is no clear line on what is good and what is bad. When shows are not black and white it forces you to think about things and make up your own mind based on your own morals. Is he a good guy for killing bad guys? or is he still a bad guy for murdering? You be the judge. 

Michael C Hall that plays Dexter is also a personal favourite actor of mine. He pulls off the stoic, calm man but also gives off that eery feeling. He plays a character I enjoy in Six Feet Under as well, a great morbid show about death and running a funeral home. It touches on some very deep feelings of life and death that can leave you quite rattled.
