Top 30 TV Shows of 2012 : No 23 Dexter

I made no secret of how much I loathed S6 of Dexter, I very reluctantly decided to give the show a second chance (after all I did love the previous five seasons). This season of the show was another mixed bag for me, one that showed its many weaknesses and also the strengths that makes watching it every week still worthwhile.

Jennifer Carpenter’s performance as a Debra Morgan who now knows her brother’s deep dark messed up secret has been phenomenal and she really has elevated an uneven season.

I still think the show needs to set an end date and needs to finally do what Harry keeps on telling Dexter to do, allow the character to go on the run. He can’t keep getting away with it, it’s happened too many times. My hope is that Debs can finally understand that Dexter has to be stopped, sadly the season finale suggests she has found her own darkness.
