Many Australians became fans of Michael C. Hall while watching the series Six Feet Under. The show was popular with Australians because it starred Rachel Griffiths, an Australian actress.
However until now only those with Australian pay tv – or those who *ahem* downloaded episodes from the internet – have been lucky enough to see the new series “Dexter” which airs on Showcase. This changes on February the 14th, when Dexter season one is released in Australia. You can pre-order it today from JB Hifi and you get a bonus Dexter t-shirt.
Dexter is not a show for the faint hearted. It is a black comedy based on the novel Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay. The character Dexter is a serial killer with a difference – he only kills other serial killers. He works for the police department in forensics as his day job.
Recently there was some controversy around one of the commercials for the show. I found out about this thanks to TV Tonight – a blog belonging to one of our forum members – and as a former Adelaide girl I found the ad pretty funny myself.
Also on TV Tonight, the great news that season two of Dexter will appear on Showcase quite soon after the finale for season one.
