he’s as brilliant as ever, but should Dexter have been resurrected?

Although virtually all good TV sequence go dangerous ultimately, Dexter, the 2006 US drama a couple of serial killer who solely serially kills dangerous folks, was an notorious offender. Based on the sequence of novels by Jeff Lindsay it was an on the spot hit when it started. Michael C Hall, contemporary off the success of Six Feet Under, was an enigmatic lead, the writing was adequate to draw actors of the calibre of John Lithgow (the Trinity Killer from season three) and the high-concept premise – “he’s the serial killer you’ll be rootin’ for!” put bums on seats.

Eight sequence later, nonetheless, when Dexter lastly bowed out it was typically agreed this was no less than 4 sequence too late. The finale, wherein virtually nothing was resolved satisfactorily, was a very egregious stinker. “Doing a Dexter”, grew to become the 21st century model of “leaping the shark”. So bringing again Dexter Morgan – final seen not dying in a tragic boating accident – is the crime drama equal of giving Alan Partridge a brand new chat present. Even the brand new sequence’ showrunner Clyde Phillips has admitted as a lot, telling Variety that outdated Dexter “was only seeing as far into the future as the headlights on a car.” To which I’d counter that that automobile barely had wheels, not to mention headlights.

Anyway, it’s beneath this weighty pall that Dexter returns, and it implies that assessing its deserves is a nettlesome process: there’s the matter of whether or not it’s a good TV present, but then there’s additionally the matter of whether or not it should have been resurrected in any respect.

On the primary query, on the premise of episode one no less than, Dexter: New Blood simply passes muster. We open on Dexter dwelling as ‘Jim Lindsay’ out within the chilly and frosty woodlands someplace in small-town, upstate New York. He chops wooden, feeds his goats, dates the native sheriff and usually tries to slot in. Surprise – his sister Debs (Jennifer Carpenter) is there too, reuniting two of the primary solid from the unique sequence. Except she’s only a figment of Dexter’s creativeness, there to remind him to not return to his outdated methods.
