My Current Addiction: Dexter | TV & Movies

Hey! Do you ever just get a great idea while doing the most normal things?

I was in the shower, and I got an idea for a blog post series! Why don’t I do a little My Current Addiction kind of post, where I can share a TV show, movie, album, band, book or whatever.

So to kick this series off, I’m going to be sharing a show that I’ve been addicted to the past couple weeks. Dexter!



Dexter Morgan is a Miami-based blood splatter expert who doesn’t just solve murders; he commits them too. In fact, he’s a serial killer — but he only murders the guilty, so he feels justified with his lifestyle choices. His policewoman sister and his cop co-workers have no idea Dexter lives a double life; however, adoptive father Harry knows his secret, and does, in fact, help Dexter hone his “skills.” It’s a unique brand of justice for which charming Dexter feels a psychological hunger.

Why I’m an Addict:

I finished watching RuPaul’s Drag Race, and I needed another show to watch, so I looked through my Netflix recommendations, and this one showed up, so I decided to watch the pilot; and here I am now, on season 5 and completely hooked…

It’s everything I wanted from a show! Just perfection! It has gore, humour, mystery and everything in between!

When I’m watching this show, I’m always on the tips of my toes, always guessing; and that’s what makes it so great! It always has you hooked and waiting for the next episode.

You get so attached to the characters because you get to see them grow up mentally, and physically. You also get to see a lot of them die, which is kind of expected from a murder show… but I just thought I would mention it.

This a fairy old show, so it’s already finished (8 seasons in total) in 2013. It started off during October of 2006, so it’s pretty old compared to the shows I watch, but you don’t feel the time difference at all. Like maybe it’s weird that the characters are using flip phones and shit, but other than that, you can’t really tell.

If you’re into murder stories, gore, and phycological thrillers, then you’d totally love this show, and thats why it’s my current addiction!

Much love, Rawan❤ …
