dexter, our anti-hero,
is a blood spatter specialist for the miami pd and part-time serial killer.
he has a code of conduct.
imparted to him by his foster father.
'if you are going to enjoy ritually killing people,
at least enjoy ritually killing the right people.'
and dexter remembers this well
he enacts everyones favourite revenge fantasies
and makes you watch them. close up.
unrepentant paedophiles? alien vs predator vs children.
serial drunk drivers? so much unreprocessed rubbish.
heartless human traffikers? the scum on the bath that needs to be washed away.
dexter does the job
and he does it with delicious malice aforethought,
and attention to detail.
but dexter has a blind-spot.
and it is a fairly serious one:
he admires and respects other serial killers.
