Excellent season. IMHO, the best one since the first.

What? Trinity was't that good IMO. And season 2 being better than the Icetruck Killer? C'mon!

Are you kidding? I loved Trinity! He kept me glued to my TV more than any other villain.

And call me crazy, but I just wasn't wild about the Ice Truck Killer. It was still miles ahead of season 3, though.

*Spoilers*

Loved this season, but I couldn't help but they created a bigger plot than they were actually able to accomplish in 12 episodes. The relationship between Chase and Emily went completely unexplained, and everything with Quinn and Liddy felt rather rushed. At the end of episode 10, Dexter was pretty much screwed, yet it took him less than a few minutes to remedy a lot of these situations. I wish the season could have had a few more episodes. That being said, the season was excellent, despite having a very "safe" ending compared to last season.

This. And season 3 has been the worst, IMO.

I thought season 5 start out as bit choppy, but came together nicely (even if some of the stuff wrapped up too cleanly). I don't get some of the lack of love for season 3 either, Jimmy Smits did pretty well within the role of Miguel Prado

Trinity was easily the best.

Trinity's character was amazing and easily the best villain of the show - but the season itself was plagued with minor and not-so-minor plot holes, and filler episodes it really dragged it down.

EDIT: Oh, and regarding S05 - I think the absence of Rita REALLY helped the show. After Season 1 she got extremely annoying.

Yeah S3 is FAR behind any other season. It was just plain boring IMHO, especially the main plot.

2 > 4 > 1 > 5 > 3 here. This season had some great moments but didn't completely fulfill it's potential, and compared to Trinity Jordan Chase was a pretty piss weak adversary as it turned out. The Dan The Dentist episode was my favourite for the year, and one of my favourites ever, absolutely classic ending to that episode.

I'd agree, that was the first time when I thought "Maybe this season won't be so bad after all..."

I think the latest season was a bit thin. So many plot holes.

Also heard that MCH and the chick that plays Deb are in the process of a divorce, I wonder if that will affect the show at all.

On December 13, 2010, Hall and Carpenter released a statement saying that they had filed for divorce after having been separated "for some time."[16]



Assuming they were separated while filming, it didn't seem to affect anything.

Here's a story with a strong sense of deja vu. It was just a year ago (and one day!) that news broke that Dexter's longtime showunner/executive producer Clyde Phillips was leaving the series, on the heels of Season 4 ending. Now, the week Season 5 has concluded, Phillip's successor, Chip Johannessen, has made a quick exit from the series after a single season.

Deadline broke the news, revealing that Scott Buck has been named the new showrunner going into Season 6. Buck taking over is a different approach than when Phillips departed. In that case, Johannessen was completely new to Dexter, moving over to the series from 24.

Buck on the other hand is being promoted from within, having been with Dexter as a writer since Season 2. In those years, he's moved from co-executive producer to executive producer and Deadline says he has "great rapport with the show's writers," noting that he had served as number 2 to both Phillips and Johannessen - and that while Johannessen is well regarded, Buck "was ready to take the reins of the series."

My opinion is the opposite, Season 2 is my fave and Season 3 is my least fave.

*SPOILERS*











Well I guess I was just kind of angry at one of my favorite characters being done in by that Lila bitch.  But in the end I agree 2 was the better of the two seasons.

And I finished season 4, which is my favorite so far, but the ending was... really sad!   :'(

I watched the entire series over Christmas break and I'd say it's tied for my favorite show ever (with Curb Your Enthusiasm). Trinity is the best character evar.

I've watched this show ever since I caught the first season on ITV here in the UK. It's amazing, probably among my favourite TV shows, definitely my favourite TV show that's still going since The Shield, The Wire, The Sopranos, Lost and possibly 24 are the only others I like better.

In terms of how good the seasons are:

Season 4
Season 2
Season 1
Season 3
Season 5

I thought Season 5 was by far the weakest season, and I couldnt imagine many people thinking otherwise when I saw it. The only few other people I know who watch it also thought so. It wasn't particularly bad or anything, just average.

The best season is a bit trickier though. Season 4 was very well done and had a very good conclusion, so I might put that above season 2. The thing about season 2 is it has the best storyline in Dexter - the Bay Harbour Butcher and Doakes storyline - and one of the worst things in Dexter, Lila. She's easily the most annoying of each season's guest star. So it's hard for my to justify saying season 2 is my favourite when it includes her storyline.
