It is a fine show indeed that can take a brutal serial killer (Michael C. Hall) -- one who bathed in his mother's blood as a child -- and make us root for him week in and week out. Couple that with interesting mysteries via Dexter's sister Deb the cop (Jennifer Carpenter), and you've got yourself a can't-miss show. Last season "Dexter" really outdid itself with Dexter going all "Big Brother-Big Sister" program on us with John Lithgow's Trinity Killer and the, ahem, killer twist ending with Rita (Julie Benz).
