Oh, I forgot, this was the first episode of this show I ever watched and I don't get the hype, Dexter just sounds like a big ball of emo and doesn't seem that badass at all. He kills some random guy but only punched his next door neighbor for making out with his wife? gtfo. SEASON PASS: DELETED
you cant jump in like you have with so many preconceptions like you have. dexter is a complicated character and is not always meticulous or expected to be. in fact the more human he becomes or spread out his attention the more his ability to efficiently and methodically kill suffers and this is a major theme in the show. we already know so much about the disposal of bodies that we dont need to see everyone and this one was from a flashback. i do look forward to more indepth kill scenes though, which i can assure will come. he also punched the neighbor out in one of his few scenes of humanity which is antithetical to his killing nature. its more weird that he reacted so humanely to the indiscretion at all, but thats obviously emphasizing the theme of his battle. he doesnt usually kill for a trasgression like this anyways, and for the most part follows a code that doesnt allow this. you should really watch from the beginning or dont give the show a try at all. I guarantee you wont enjoy it if you want the show to live up to how youd always thought dexter would be or whatever and quibble about things you cant really understand without a depth that the show has built up. also this was a particularly bad episode to start on, so id really suggest you do give it another try.
