I’ve been a longtime fan of the Dexter series on Showtime, and a new season (#7) is going to begin in about a month. I unfortunately don’t subscribe to Showtime, having caught it through Netflix and Amazon Video on Demand in the past. But last month I picked up the entire run of the whole series (when I spotted it as a blu ray deal of the week on Amazon) and have begun watching it all over again, deliberately, studying this serial killer series for whatever new observations I can make the second time around and to uncover any lessons I can glean.
I’ve begun sharing some snippets of these thoughts on twitter in a series with the hashtag #DexterNotes. If you don’t follow me on twitter, not to worry: these are all handily available in the permanent archive I keep here on gorelets.com, called The Nest; here’s a link to the archived #DexterNotes. I’m also posting links to related Dexterophilia on Delicious. I’m ashamed to admit I’ve only read one of the Dexter books by Jeff Lindsay that inspired the series so far, but I plan to make amends. I’m not just a fan; I think this study may lead to something very interesting and unique in the future.
