I’ve decided its time to start watching Dexter.. yes, sadly, I am waaay behind in popular tv as I don’t have a lot of time to dedicate to watching shows but I’ve decided Dexter is one I need to watch. I downloaded the first 5 episodes of season 1 but unfortunately, Fiance doesn’t care to watch it with me. So I’d like to know, is this a show I can watch alone without having nightmares for weeks? Or should I find a way to convince him he should watch it with me? He didn’t want to watch Lost either but I got him into that one (actually he still complains about it not being on anymore) so there is a chance I could get him to watch it.. I’ve heard its pretty graphic and gruesome tho so I’m not really wanting to watch it alone..

It’s reallyyyyyy good! Actually not too graphic, he “stabs” people when he kills them and you see some “dead” bodies but it’s really not too bad. I have nightmares after horror movies and I promise I’ve had nothing of the sort from Dexter!

I love this show it’s my favorite. You won’t have nightmares. It’s going to sound weird but you actually really like him and the fact that he is a serial killer, doesn’t really bother you.

So so good! I don’t like scary movies or anything and I love Dexter. Even though Dexter kills people he is sort of the “the good guy” character. I say it’s totally worth getting into!

You won’t have nightmares! But I was definitely not a fan of this most recent season.

Love Dexter. DH and I recently started watching it and we just finished season 3. There really isn’t any gore in it at all.

@bmarie12: agreed. They are starting to make the character a little more crazy.

LOOOOVE Dexter. This last season really turned around at the end, was not really into it for at least the first half.
FH and I watched the first 4 seasons last summer and watched the last 2 seasons ‘live.’ I cannot watch more than 1 episode at a time though because I was always on the edge of my seat freaking out!

OMG I LOVE THIS SHOW! Lol you won’t have any problems watching it by yourself!! Sometimes Fiance is playing his video games, and I’ll watch it without him because I don’t want to wait lol 🙂

I hate horror movies as well… and have never had any nightmares from Dexter. I will tell you that some of the episodes can be a little freaky though…
I think that this is more the case when you are just getting into it though. Once you get more accustomed to the show it’s a little easier to accept things.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE Dexter!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was hesitant to watch it, but my fiance convinced me to start. He has all the seasons so I figured why not. I literally could not stop watching it. I finished all six seasons in less than a month. It is so addicting. And yes, even though Dexter is a serial killer, he is a very likable character.
Cant wait for season 7!!!

I’m another horror movie scaredy-cat, but I love Dexter! I’m not digging the last (6th) season much, yet, but I’m only about 1/3 into it at the mo’. You’ll get hooked.. it’s a great show.
