Dexter - The Complete Fifth Season

There are 10 comments on the EDGE story from Aug 17, 2011, titled Dexter - The Complete Fifth Season. In it, EDGE reports that:

The fifth season of "Dexter" had a lot to live up to after the amazing storytelling of season 4, when not only did John Lithgow play the Trinity Killer so effectively, but also one of his last dastardly deeds was killing Dexter's beloved wife, Rita , which set the world of Dexter spinning.

It is not "getting played out". The stupid producers RUINED the show in the fourth season when they got new (bad) writers, and killed off Rita. The show has been boring as CSI ever since. And that is SO boring.

The fourth season was the best season. Last season was the 5th season I believe, so Sunday will start the sixth season.

I'm going to give the new season a chance, see where the writers are going to go,in saying that, my pals and i who love the show, have decided if they don't ramp it up with the characters and storylines we are saying goodbye to watching any further shows,it seems to me, they always mess with a good thing and then wonder why their shows end up losing viewers.
I loved Dexter because it was different,now its joined the ranks as same OLD,hopefuly the writers have had time to regroup and get their act together and we will get the magic back that made this show stand out.

Which magic did you think was missing? When I think back on season 5, I have to admit, I liked it. Season 4 was great so I compared season 5 to it and felt it wasn't as good but when I look back, I liked some of the interaction between the characters. Johnny Lee Miller was good and Julia Styles was believable.

Starting with season 4, it stank. There were some good scenes in 4, John Lithgow was incredible, so was Micheal Hall. But the filler material was dull, like the stupid romance between the two detectives. Who cares?

Season 5 was o.k if you compare it to run of the mill shows, but not for the great DEXTER. Not compared to seasons one to three. There was not the intensity.

Season 6 so far is pitiful. The lighting is bad, the storyline BORING, the whold formula is just missing.

In one to three, Dexter was always chasing someone, and someone was always chasing Dexter. And other than his main kill, the guy he was currently chasing, Dexter was always killing a few others on the side.

What happened to the gory death scenes, the buzzsaw, and the explicit sex that was in seasons one to three???

And they have changed Dexter from the sicko psycho that we all loved into just a boring good guy dectective who chases down the bad guys and kills them. BORING.

And religious on top of it!!! BORING!!!!

Are you kidding? Did you even see seasons one to three?? How can you even compare the swill they are feeding us now to that incredible show??

I've seen all the seasons, more than once and the forth was the best. I liked Rita but she was kind of a pain in the neck so, I was kind of glad she went (even though it was sad). Fouth season, the best and I believe Michael C. Hall kind of felt that way too.

Anyway, I can't figure this season out so far but I'm interested.

I felt sorry for Dexter on tonights show...he had to realize that eventually he'll have to give it all up.

You must be one of the awful writers from the show. No one would really think that piece of crap was good.

It has NO character development, no actors with ANY charisma, NO story development, No tension, NO mystery, NO NOTHING!!!

And on top of that, all the scenes are photographed in near darkness, even the ones that are supposed to be daylight.

The greatest show ever has been absolutely, completely RUINED.
