The first two seasons are solid in my opinion. Afterwards the show drops off pretty sharply. I kind of like season three too because of the dynamic between Dexter and Miguel. People praise season four but I donít really enjoy it as to me it was the start of the downfall.

Probably a good idea. Just think of this as an "Elseworlds" Dexter.

Re: Dexter: Original Sin - prequel series & Trinity series in the works

I don't understand the thought process. Why not just reboot the whole series and start it from this point? Why hamstring yourself and the future timeline when you don't have to. They easily could have made this it's own new rebooted continuity. Make it more like the books that get super fucking weird to distinguish it from the original series. I'll still watch. But just seems like an odd way to keep the IP going.

Iíve been mildly curious about the books, but I hear that they really go off the rails and only a couple are good. I guess not a lot different from the show.

I think they don't want to give up the built-in fans of the original series who will watch this (in whatever numbers it might be). A lot riskier doing a full reboot with a better chance of lower viewership.

Personally, I'm 90% sure I won't watch it (but am mildly curious) - with a full-ass reboot I'm 100% out.

Re: Dexter: Original Sin - prequel series & Trinity series in the works

If itís decent Iíll try to watch Dexter: Original Sin. I would prefer a full on reboot personally. So much of the original run (including New Blood) I donít really care for and not sure why thereís the need to pigeonhole this new version into the existing highly flawed continuity.

Frankly as many Dexter fans as there may be I feel like thereís a good chunk of the fanbase thatís been pissed off twice now. Even if Original Sin is good it has a lot of baggage attached to it by being a prequel. I also think if this was a reboot people might be willing to give the new actor more of a shot.
