Everybody’s friendly neighborhood serial killer is back.  Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) makes his way back into our hearts with Showtime’s third season of the acclaimed series Dexter, based on Darkly Dreaming Dexter by Jeff Lindsay.  This DVD and Blu-Ray release has been delivered to the fans just in time to get back into the series with grand anticipation for season four commencing September 15th, 2009.

By now things have settled a little from season two.  The heat on Dexter seems to have dwindled since the demise of the tenacious Sergeant Doakes (Erik King) fingering Dex as the Bay Harbor Butcher, and the attempted blackmailing by his brief love interest Lila Tournay (Jaime Murray).  This season however creates a turning point in Dexter’s life.  In the first episode of this season we find out that his girlfriend Rita (Julie Benz) is now pregnant.  This sets the tone for what is to come in season four.  Living his secret serial killer existence has been hard enough to pull off, and with a baby on the way, it’s bound to throw a wrench into the situation.

This season is 12 episodes in length and goes as follows: Our Father, Finding Freebo, The Lion Sleeps Tonight, All in the Family, Turning Biminese, Si Se Puede, Easy As Pie, The Damage A Man Can Do, About Last Night, Go Your Own Way, I had A Dream and Do You Take Dexter Morgan?  The pregnancy holds no real clout in season three; it appears that it will hold precedence during the fourth.  The season begins when Dexter finds his next victim, a dope dealing murderer named Freebo.  Dexter goes to Freebo’s house to deliver his brand of justice.  However, he finds a scuffle between Freebo and another man which ends in Freebo’s escape and the demise of the man at the hands of Dexter.  Problems materialize the next day when the body is found by police to be the brother of high profile Assistant District Attorney Miguel Prado (which is Jimmy Smits introduction into the series).  When Prado shows intense interest into the case of the murder of his brother, Dexter and Miguel bond and become friends as Dexter attempts to cover this inadvertent slaying.  As the series progresses, Dexter and Miguel’s bond grows to unhealthy levels even by Dexter’s standards.  Now Dexter must handle their friendship while trying to find Freebo, the bane of this season.

The beauty of Dexter is how the show creates anticipation within the viewer, causing you to crave the next week’s episode in order to see the storyline unfold.  This limits my ability or desire to divulge much information about the episodes.  Spoilers will hinder the enjoyment of this remarkably original show, which is why I’m holding restraint with the information I am divulging here.  A few other occurrences in the third season that don’t reveal too much pertinent information are: Debra Morgan (Jennifer Carpenter) finds herself dealing with someone from Internal Affairs, Angel Batista (David Zayas) becomes a sergeant, and Debra begins a secret relationship with Anton Briggs (David Ramsey) a forced police informant.

This season of Dexter brings about a new series of conflicts and dilemmas, and an overall phenomenal progression to the series.  The focus is the introduction of Miguel Prado and the choice of casting Jimmy Smits was a wise one.  He really works well onscreen with Michael C. Hall. For the most part each episode is as engaging as the next.  The only episode to be prominently unappealing would have to be episode four, All in the Family, which came across as filler in order to stretch the season to 12 episodes.  Even so, that doesn’t obstruct the overall greatness of season three.

Dexter: The Third Season is not as good as season two -- you can’t beat that Doakes/Dexter confrontation -- but it still shines as a great continuation into the best series currently on TV.

SUPPLEMENTAL MATERIAL:

- First two episodes of The United States of Tara, Season 1

The third season of Dexter, the hit Showtime series, comes to DVD by way of Paramount Pictures and CBS DVD.  The video is presented 16:9 and looks adequate, but could have had a better transfer.  The Blu-Ray will look remarkably better than the DVD no doubt.  The DVD was what was used for this review, so pick your poison.  The audio is presented in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and 2.0 and there are no complaints here.  There is also a Spanish Mono option.  Sadly for fans of the series we get nothing by way of Dexter extras.  For those interested in something entirely different, there are two episodes of some show called The United States of Tara.

Even though this 4-disc DVD set of Dexter: The Third Season is barebones, it is a must have for fans of the series and comes highly recommended.
