I just spent tonight devouring all four episodes on the first disc of the Dexter season 1 set. This show is so good! I don't think I've been this excited by a new series since Heroes, but Dexter grew on me even faster. (Those first few eps of Heroes were kinda slow.)
All the secondary characters are becoming fully fleshed out too, which is great. Especially the only cop in the precinct who's creeped out by Dexter. He was a bit one note in the first episode, but by the fourth he'd become one of my favorite characters.
Same with Dexter's sister. I love their relationship.
The stuff with Dexter's girlfriend and her kids feels a little extraneous to me right now, though. I'm hoping it gets integrated more as the season progresses.
Disc 2, here I come!
