Dexter can now be classed as a ‘long-running’ drama and since its second series has abandoned the books as a main source of plot. With its sixth season it enters a tricky period, close to the end of its natural life, but still successful enough for Showtime.
Dexter Season 6 DVD kicks off with Dexter realizing that he doesn’t want to pass on his dark passenger to his son Harrison. So what should Dexter pass on to his son? The writers picked religion, so predictably, the season six bad guy just happens to be a religious nut job convinced that by staging the events of Revelations in the Bible, he will bring on the end of the world.
Religion is an interesting one to throw at Dexter Season 6, in relation to both his son and his killing. How can killers believe in a “good God”? Does someone who has found redemption through religion no longer qualify for death at his hand? All valid points.
The series is riddled with allusions to religion. Each season of Dexter has a recurrent theme like this that drives the arc storyline and feeds more subtly into the individual episode plots.
So why does DEXTER continue to be such a kick-ass show? Because each season is a 12-hour-long movie, and the writers know how that movie will end before they show you a minute of Episode 1. There is no "let's figure this out as we go" in DEXTER.
With Dexter debating the pros and cons of what religion can offer, the show takes a controversial approach, but one that always remains true to the character. It’s refreshing, even if he is a serial killer. The conversations he has with one of the Doomsday Killers, as well as Brother Sam, demonstrates how the show has gone from strength to strength as it continues to flesh out a character that’s always in pursuit of answers.
Dexter dvd review is just as compelling as the previous five seasons with the usual rather crazy storylines where Dexter rids the world of other serial killers while filling his own need to kill. Each season has a prominent bad-guy in amongst other lesser baddies. Dexter's as interesting as ever — even if he's not really evolving. Deb is developing, at least: Her relationship with fellow detective Joseph Quinn (Desmond Harrington) is on a roller coaster this year.
