Dexter: The First Season to be released on August 21st

A couple of weeks ago, I added Dexter to the Crimespree DVD Calendar with a September 4th release date.

Today, Paramount announced that Dexter: The First Season will be released on August 21st….
Hey, I was close!
Dexter will feature the twelve season one episodes on four DVDs. Extras will include:
  • 2 Audio Commentaries by the Cast
  • The Academy of Blood – A Killer Course!
  • N Technology: Free Showtime Series Episodic Download
  • 2 episodes of Showtime’s “Brotherhood”
Season one of Dexter is based on Jeff Lindsay’s Darkly Dreaming Dexter novel.
Dexter is based on the compelling novel “Darkly Dreaming Dexter” by Jeff Lindsay. Orphaned at the age of four and harboring a traumatic secret, Dexter Morgan (Dexter Morgan (Emmy®- and Golden Globe®- nominated actor Michael C. Hall from “Six Feet Under”) is adopted by a police officer who recognizes Dexter’s homicidal tendencies and guides his son to channel his gruesome passion for human vivisection in a constructive way – by killing those heinous perpetrators that are above the law or who have slipped through the cracks of justice. A respected member of the police force, a perfect gentleman and a man with a soft spot for children, it’s hard not to like Dexter. Although his drive to kill is unflinching, he struggles to emulate normal emotions he doesn’t feel, and to keep up his appearance as a caring, socially responsible human being.
If you missed it on Showtime, this is your chance to see it. Any fan of Lindsay’s books will love the series.
Season two of Dexter will debut, on Showtime, in October.
