Meet my latest obsession. Move over Edward and Jacob, you’ve got nothing on this guy. He’s the whole package! He’s a devoted brother, husband and father. He’s trained in the advanced arts of jujitsu, and for those who like doctors, he even has a medical degree! (Perfect for the Arab and Desi parents out there!!) And how can I forget!…. He’s of legal age 😛
During the day, he’s an accomplished blood spatter analyst for the Miami Metro Police. On the outside he’s average height and build, but physically fit. On the inside, he’s smart – a meticulous planner. He can also be deep and funny, but I must admit, at times can seem emotionally stunted (but so are a lot of men ;). Oh, and he’s a serial killer. *sigh* dreamy right 🙂 Really makes your heart melt 😛 But here’s the catch…he’s a serial killer with a conscience! He only kills other killers. People who he KNOWS have killed and will keep killing, but have evaded justice. He’s like Superman, without the tights, but a little darker and funnier. Instead of superhuman strength and infra-red rays coming from his eyes, he uses a syringe, a few cool moves, and has a tool kit that would make any butcher jealous 😉
Meet Dexter. You can get further acquainted with him on Showtime or, if you’re like me and came to the party a little late, you can watch marathons on Netflix. All it took was one episode, and I was addicted. It’s smart, it’s funny, it’s dark and it’s touching at times. It really covers the gamut of human emotion.
Just a warning, it’s a Showtime series, so language is strong and there is occasional nudity. Oh and he IS a serial killer, so it can get gory at times. But it isn’t too hard to fast forward through the scenes I can do without and still enjoy seeing the inner workings of a mass murderer 🙂
Hmmm I guess when it’s all said and done, he MAY have more in common with Edward than I initially thought…they both like blood and now that I think about it, they are both a little on the pasty side 🙂
Happy watching 🙂
P.S. I’d like to dedicate this entry to my beloved friend Rehan, who is truly one of the funniest people I know.
