Surprised at all the negativity. I'm enjoying the show a LOT more than I did last season. The writing feels stronger, Dexter's exploration of faith has been interesting, and, while I'm not yet completely sold on the Olmos/Hanks characters, I've been loving how truly shocking and imaginative their killings have been.
Yeah, like everyone else I miss the dark and edgy Dexter of the first couple seasons, and feel they probably DID make him too loveable and domesticated over the years (strange that Walt on Breaking Bad seems like a nastier guy than the serial killer who regularly chops people's bodies up
), but all that started LONG before this season came along.
