An amazing DVD shop has opened on the same row as Steven’s. As a result I finally got hold of the first season of Dexter. I had caught the pilot on TV during this exciting trip to England. Dexter, played by Michael C. Hall (David in Six Feet Under), is a serial killer who also works for the Miami Metro Police Department as a blood spatter analyst (apparently a true specialization) who gives justice a helping hand when he feels it’s necessary.

It takes humour blacker than black, surreal-meets-Disney cinematography and a couple of great twists per episode but the series pulls off the unlikely premise convincingly and enjoyably. Pity we’re still totally hung up on The Wire (Season Two, Episode 5 and counting… )!
