Definitely one of my favorite shows. What a ride the entire time. I agree with a lot of you in that I didn't like the way it ended, and I hated when Deb was killed off. I think Dexter dying would have been a good way to go. Yes he did deserve to pay for all his killings, but I'm not sure that would have been an exciting ending, even though that's what should have happened to him.
The first few sesaons of the show were definitely still some of my favorites of all TV shows. I actually rewatched the first season not too long and fell in love with the show all over again. I think this is the type of show that is just hard to keep fresh and original for so many seasons. I kinda wish it would have ended sooner and on a higher note. I hate it when great shows get dragged through the mud simply because they insist on adding season after season after season. Not all shows need 6+ seasons. Some stories can be told in 2 seasons, and they can be told really well.
Ah well, I still think it was one hell of a ride. It could have still ended better, but I definitely enjoy it while it lasted.
It's one of my favorite shows, too! I like Dexter's character so much that I continued to watch even if the later seasons seemed to drag on. As I previously mentioned, while I love Dexter, I kept watching just to see if Miami Metro will catch him. I'm more interested in getting the reaction of everyone in the precinct.
The ending of Dexter just leaving all behind and resurfacing in I forgot which part in the country just doesn't seem fair! I have no questions about his character saved for being a serial killer, but there should have been justice!
Oh, I also didn't like the Deb developing feelings for Dexter bit! I would have wanted for her character to be just the plain sister with no love angles. When the love angle was introduced, that's when I started to dislike Deb's character. While Deb wasn't my favorite character, I also didn't think she needed to die in the show. She should have gotten Harrison, and not Hannah!
