To Dexter or not to Dexter, that is the question

I've seen the Dexter dvds at the library and been sorely tempted to watch them. I absolutely ADORE the Dexter books. If you haven't heard of them, Dexter is a serial killer. And the good guy. Yeah, I know it's strange. The books are very, very dark but somehow funny and I completely get that.

I went to Showtime's website and watched trailers for Dexter and I had serious issues...... that wasn't MY Dexter. Does that ever happen to you? I've had a picture of Dexter in my head since I read the first book a few years ago. The tv-Dexter didn't match my mental picture and I'm afraid that watching the show will ruin my crush on book-Dexter.

I'm stumped. And going to read the Dexter books. Yet again.

I've never read the book Dexter....
But for a week after the first season, I was in serious like with the TV Dexter... (I watched the first season "On Demand" in about a week.)

I haven't read the books (didn't even know there were any), but I did watch some of the first season when it was on CBS during the writer's strike.

It was pretty decent. The actors weren't the best....Dexter himself was fabulous, but the rest of the case leaves some to be desired.
