Dexter (2006-2013) is about a serial killer who isn't like other serial killers; he has a code of honor instilled in him from childhood and only kills those who truly deserve it. I don't like cop shows, forensics shows, or stories about serial killers, so this is exactly the sort of show I thought I'd hate. But Dexter is just brilliant, and Michael C. Hall's portrayal is, pardon the expression, dead on. The show is so clever, well-written, exciting, touching, and darkly comic that it transcends the material.

Okay, so the series didn't end as well as it could have. It's still very much worth watching. Especially the first season, which is killer. I'm also fond of seasons two, four, five and seven.
