Dexter is a great show no doubt. I loved it. It is different, but in my opinion it is as good as Breaking Bad.

I didn't start watching it until just before the second half restart of season 5. You guys kept talking about here on GT, so I checked Netflix and they had the first 4 and a half years. I binged it in 4 and half days. Sometime near the end of the first season I decided I didn't like any of the characters and I said I'm done with it. It already had me hooked, but I didn't know it yet. I couldn't stay away. I figured I had that much time into that I might as well see it through. I'm glad I did. It really picked up.

After having binged the first 4 and a half seasons with no commercial interruptions, the last half of season 5 on AMC was painfully slow. Binging it spoiled me. Waiting week to week and then the commercials killing the flow was painful after the binge. Without spoiling anything, I will say Gus was right about what should have been done to Jesse early on. Couldn't stand that miserable dude vacillating between lobotomy depression, and irrational mania. LOL

One thing the show never shows is the destroyed lives of the users of their product and the hell their children have to endure living with meth addicts. Nothing likeable at all about people who destroy others for money.

Not true. You must have missed the episode with Spooge and his old lady and the kid in the wasteoid house they lived in? The episode w the ATM dropped on his head?

Or when jesse was out w Mike and jesse managed to get in the house w the strung out guy waving the shotgun (TUCKER! TUCKER!)

There was quite a bit of meth s ugly side. Wendy at the Crossroads motel? The street corner dealers?

You must have missed a few episodes.

Also the ruined relationship of Walt and his Family, both immediate and extended show some reality of the damage done. I have to avoid being a spoilerhere.
