Dexter 6 Sneak Preview Review!

I saw the first three episodes of the new season (6) of Dexter last night - courtesy of a Showtime screener delivered in a cool blood-evidence envelope- and here's what I can tell you (slight spoilers ahead) -
  • Personnel surprises in the Miami Police Department very relevant to our crew.   Look for unexpected promotions and otherwise
  • Hot new intern working under Masuka - who would certainly like that in more ways than one, and you never know
  • Harrison is already talking about "Daddy's box" (which would be Dexter's box of memento blood slides)
  • Dexter is up against a two-person killing team for the main villain - could spell twice as much trouble for him
  • the individuals that Dexter brings his justice to, on a weekly basis, are at this point far more interesting and vivid than we've seen in previous seasons (in some of the previous seasons, the weeklies were either neglected or almost an afterthought - quite the opposite so far in Season 6, in which the weeklies are almost as fascinating as the double main villain)
All in all, an excellent, tantalizing start to this superb series.  Religion, sicko science, a little nudity all spice up the stories.  The religion is especially vexing to Dexter, since he professes to "believe in nothing".  Good twists in every episode, Dexter as sharp as always with his voice-overs, and everyone looking as good or better than ever promise a top-notch, intense, cerebral and physical season - or just the way we like it.

The season starts in real time on Showtime on October 2.
