Plot and character development are beaten out of existence because it's all about the action. There's never a dull moment.
Dexter: The Sixth Season, Grade B-plus: The cable series starring Michael C. Hall gets better with each season because of brilliant writing and the convincing performance by Hall as a serial killer who works in a Miami police department. The cliffhanger at the end will make you want to subscribe to Showtime just to see what happens in the next season.
As always, Dexter's killing rivals, played by Colin Hanks and Edward James Olmos, are solid, and that makes for an engaging game of cat-and-killer mouse.
