Me & my wife started renting it from Netflix two years ago.
We ripped through seasons 1,2,3,4,5.
Each year is better than the previous.
The season 4 finale with Lithgow goes down, in my books, as the greatest TV season-series finale ever.
This is one of those "Everybody I know that has given this show a chance - loves it" shows.
see I don't totally agree with that, I find that while the acting has improved each season and the plot has gotten increasingly twisted and compelling that the writing has gotten sloppier over time. In particular with how they continually have to come up with ways for Dexter to get himself into (and then out of) trouble. I find increasingly that they resort to cheap and unnecessary plot devices to advance the story and often have the characters doing things that their personality would never do.
Its definitely a great show and one of my favorites, I just get frustrated with the sloppy writing sometimes.
Thats me on the street with a violin under my chin, playing with a grin, singing gibberish.
