I watched it but I can't say what I feel. I found it very disturbing, not what I was expecting. This is a show about a former serial killer with relationship problems, who now works for the police force to help them solve other serial killer crimes. He is obsessed with blood, I just don't know if I like this show or not. anybody else seen it and what do you think about it?

I kind of like the show, and I couldn't tell you why. It is just interesting to watch him struggle through his personal conflicts as he works. And he is not a "former serial killer.'" he is still active. Bur he only kills the bad guys who he believes ought to be eliminated in the world. Last season is being shown on NBC this year, just like Monk. I love the show Monk.

yeah at first I thought it was a former serial killer now I see that he still is. I don't think I have ever seen Monk.

Monk is a former cop whose wife was murdered 7 or 8 years prior. He had a sort of breakdown and lost his job, but still work with the police solving murders. He is a genius at it, but is also obsessive/compulsive and sees his shrink 3 times a week. It is hysterically funny. I keep pointing to Mon when he does his crazy OCD stuff and telling my husband "see, that's you!." It really is a funny show. Poor Mr. Monk is just so pathetic, he's loveable.

I watched it only because I was curious about how a serial killer got to be a forensic expert for the police. I think the whole premise if the show is harmful to our society. The show's premise is that it is o.k. to torture and murder if the victim is someone the killer believes did a bad thing to someone else. So if we are to buy into that premise, and some people will, then we have more people taking the law into their own hands. This is not good for any society. It is wrong to torture and murder, no matter who the victim is. And it is wrong for an individual to be the judge of whether or not someone is guilty of a bad crime. In a fiction story it may be possible to know for certain that someone is guilty or guilty or not guilty before they are tried in court. It isn't common that that is possible in real life. So, I won't be watching it again, since I've seen the first show. Dexter is obviously a sociopath/psychopath. And we don't need them as heroes.

people on juries and judges have to judge if a person is guilty or not, that is their job and a protection for society

Exactly. And they reach a concensus after seeing and hearing all the evidence, then there is still the appeal process to give extra time to get any other evidence. No one person should have that power.

but juries do fukk up too...good lawyers can fool 'em...anyways this is just a fictional show and i dont think someones actually gonna do it..its shitloads of work..n' of course the stress...no ordinary human can handle all of that...just sit back n' enjoy the ethical dilemmas posed by this masterpiece.

I just don't like the idea of that serial murder being the hero of the show, to me it sends a bad message out to people

this show is on showtime first and since the writers strike they are trying to clean it up for network television, its much more than a former serial killer, he cannot stay away from killing for long.. but he only kills bad people.. if that helps
