DexterFor TV Tuesday, we take a stab at a series on Showtime that epitomizes the idea of the “anti-hero.”

“Dexter” follows the exploits of Dexter Morgan, a Miami Metro Police Department blood spatter analyst who leads a double life. When he’s not solving murders, he satisfies his “dark passenger” by executing his own brand of justice.

The fifth season just came out on DVD, and season six begins in October. “Dexter” stars Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, Lauren Vélez, David Zayas, C.S. Lee, Julie Benz, James Remar, and Desmond Harrington.
