TV Shows Like Dexter – You’ll Love These If You Love Dexter

Calling Dexter fans out there from all over the world. Tv shows like dexter include these, so if you like Dexter you will love these suggestions.

For a good couple of years now my pleasure has been Dexter. There’s something about the show that you just can’t help but love if you are into thrillers etc. You can’t even call it a guilty pleasure because I don’t feel guilty, it’s something I enjoy watching. So for those of you out there like me who want shows like Dexter, you will love these similar shows!

I’m not sadistic or nasty, I just like to indulge in a show that feels realistic and try to work out the psyche of a seemingly normal person who kills people for fun and for a hobby. I, or you, could know someone like Dexter, who appears a nice guy/girl, a family person and yet they do terrible things in their spare time. That is what fascinates me, and I’m sure for others who like the show the reasons are based along the same line.

Season 1 feels like a long time ago now, where we met care free Dexter, who we know as the blood splatter guy at Miami Metro Police. He appears to enjoy his job, yet in his spare time we all sat there with our mouths open as he literally tore people apart and threw them overboard his boat. I think after the first series we kind of became used to Dexter killing and it almost became acceptable to us devoted fans. In fact now, if I’m like you, I don’t want him to be caught.

So what is it about Dexter that continues to captivate me, you, the general public?

  • He’s ordinary
  • He’s not your typical crazy psychopath, although we all would agree he’s not completely right in the head.
  • The suspense. Just when you think the games up, Dexter gets out of it, he tampers with evidence, he kills someone.
  • The writing and acting is brilliant.
  • The fast pace of the show. A series is completed in 12 episodes, whereas similar shows need 20+ to complete a series.

As for shows like Dexter, well, obviously there isn’t going to be any that are identical, mainly because they would be sued and it would be kind of boring. However there are shows out there that meet the above bullet points, maybe not all in the same show, but they have at least one of them. I’ve personally watched all of these, courtesy of Tesco DVD Rental.

So I hope you enjoy these shows like Dexter, let me know what you think of them! I won’t tell you about them because it would spoil the surprise otherwise.

  1. THanks for giving the suggestions. I can not watch these shows. I saw a preview of Criminal Minds and still am scarredfor life. Daddy loved those shows. But, again with Criminal minds my mom forbid him to wash it because he would have nightmares and run in his sleep and fall off the bed every time he watched it. But it was very nice of you to sggest other shows as I think it will help a lot of people.
