I love Dexter since years, so I don't want to be too negative here. But I have to say: I am so f?#*ing disappointed in S6 that I am thinking about to stop watching it till the last remaining episodes have aired - then watch them all in fast motion. And someone please give Jennifer Carpenter (Debra) a Golden Globe/Emmy/etc. for her outstanding performance in every single episode. "Best Actress on Television"

By far my favorite show on TV.

avatar

Such a great show with a terrible end.

avatar

Not bad. Used to be better, but now it's just... dragging. Still, worth watching over most other shows.

avatar

Great show! Loved it all the way through. Sad that it's gone.

avatar

Great idea , loved it But. Every season is the same formula. Special guest repeat

avatar

Best series I've seen so far .. in front of Breakind Bad, Sounds Official Anarchy and Vikings !! ..

I don't think the ending was bad but imo, it was disapointing. [spoiler] dexter slowly learnt to genuinely love people throuhought the whole series, but he ended up just leaving the people he loves at the last moment. now I know this decision makes perfect sense, absolutely perfect sense given everything that happened. BUT the first and main reason he did that was because he realised he kept hurting people he loves. but that was because of his second life and all the killings. meeting hanna made him able to live without that part of him. I think that dexter dieing would have made more sense. I was sure a "happy ending" was impossible, and I don't know if it would have been better.[/spoiler] still, my favourite series, not that I've watched lots of "series", but if I was to put this in my all time favourite series(adding in animes/mangas and shit) it would be top 3. 10/10 great characters developement, got very attached to them, great storyline ,just great everything. [spoiler]deb is hot[/spoiler]

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
