So out of all the season premieres and new shows I was looking forward to this year there was one that stood out above all others: Dexter. The wait has been killing me. Seriously though, after what seemed to take forever Dexter finally aired on Sunday night. I was not disappointed.
For those of you who haven’t watched Season 4, there is some insanity in the last few episodes and the season 5 premier picks up where 4 left off. Let’s just say the heat is really coming down on Dexter as the consequences of season 4 leave him reeling. Typical Dexter doesn’t know how to deal with the things that happened and has a very awkward but amusing scene involving Mickey Mouse hats and he even considers just running away. He also struggles to come to grips with what has taken place, often not even sure what emotion to show, until finally he breaks down in a very Dexter like manner.
It is almost impossible to review this premier without spoilers, so I won’t say much more, but this season looks to be incredibly intense. My one complaint is that the Debra love life plot line is getting old. One failed relationship after another, and I hope they actually start to do something more with her this season. Otherwise, this premier was gripping and I can’t wait to watch it each Sunday.
I give it 4.5 Babbles.
