The fourth season of Showtime's hit series Dexter is not only one of the best seasons in the series, but in my humble opinion one of the best seasons of any show on the entire network.
I will not divulge too much into the plot details so anyone who hasn't seen it doesn't have it spoiled for them. So, here are some basics:
- Season guest star John Lithgow shines in one of the best performances of his entire career.
- The main and supporting cast all deliver solid performances throughout, and all the characters all have more direction than in the past (and future, in some instances).
- The overall production quality of the show and this Blu-Ray release are top notch, as is expected from a Showtime Original Series.
I would not recommend starting off watching Dexter with season four, as you will appreciate the characters and plot much more if you have a solid understanding of the universe everything takes place in. However, if you fell off a bit after a lackluster season three, prepare to have your mind blown.
