I'd like to sell my existing Dexter Blu-Rays for the standard set, but Christ that's expensive...

As much as I love Dexter, I found the series to be pretty much watch once and move on so I never bothered with the season sets. But that fake blood slide set is pulling me to get it.

I want that blood slides set. But that is indeed a LOT of money.

That's what I get for buying some of the seasons individually, should of known dicks who don't put any special features on individual releases, would put out special features only on a disc included with the complete series set.

Divide the cost by 8 and then check CamelCamelCamel.com to see how cheap the individual season set prices have been.  That will figure out the cost of the "special edition" packaging, as that's the difference in price.

A few years from now when this set is super cheap somewhere, I'll finally check out the series.

Eh with the major decline in quality after season 4 it would be hard to justify this. The price further confirms that

5 and 6 have a hard drop off, yes. Not 7. Can't yet comment on 8.

5 is decent, and it's not the writers fault that it isn't better, the end of Season 4 pretty much blew up foundation of the show so they had to spend most of season 5 piecing it back together. I find it was better with a second viewing as I rewatched it prior to the start of season 6. I make no apologies for Season 6, the season long arc is just bad. It's especially disappointing since the end of Season 5 gave the writers the freedom to start however they wanted, a courtesy not extended to Season 5. Season 7 is up there as one of, if not the, best seasons of the show. Season 8 is going ok so far, it's hard to judge as it's only 4 episodes in.

I agree with everything you just said. I think the show is still going strongly, thanks to season 7 being possibly the best season of the show in every aspect. Season 6 wasn't terrible, just strange. Season 5 is the only season that I've only seen once, I think I need to give it another shot. I just remember it being boring, and I didn't care for Julia Stiles' character.

 

Season 8 is good so far, but it's hard to watch. You can definitely tell this is the final season. I'm afraid to see how it ends. Even with a strong ending, I think I'll still be disappointed due to the fact that the only TV show I ever really gotten into is coming to an end. I don't think I'll ever find a worthy replacement.

I agree, that Season with Julia Stiles in it was definitely the worst.

You must have missed Season 6, that was just horrible.

Is that the one with Collin Hanks?

 

I enjoyed it a little more than Season 5, still pretty bad.

 

Season 7 was good.

bump

 

The price on the standard Blu-Ray set seems to have gone down a bit. It's $259.99 now. That's slightly more reasonable, since you're basically getting each season for $32.50 each. I wonder if it has something to do with the widely-bashed series finale that just aired WHICH I LOVED. I am the 1%.

The regular price is ridiculous. Slight disappointed by the ending of the series.

 

According to Instant Watch Browser on my Roku, Netflix will be streaming Dexter starting December 31st. I don't know how accurate the date is.

Things may have changed but at one point the only difference in buying eery season separate opposed to this special edition is of course you get those sweet cases in the speciasl and I think a new bonus disc. I really like those sets but don't really have the room or space for either so I think I'll just save a few bucks and buy them separately.

I watched the first episode and thought it was pretty meh. I just don't care for the premise of it.

5 is ok, 6 is bad, 7 is one of the best, 8 starts out ok for the first 4 episodes or so and then goes downhill from there, I was pretty disappointed overall with the final season of Dexter.

I thought 8's season premiere was good, then went downhill, then back up again with the last two episodes. I know I'm in the minority however. I just wanted more closure for the characters through the entirety of the season along with some new storyline for those characters. I felt it was really hard to connect with new characters so late in the series, it all felt irrelevant.

Got it preordered. I thought the ending of the series was great. It made a lot of sense when you think what Dexter was about since season 1.

I wish people would stop comparing it to Breaking Bad. I watched to first 2 seasons and it hasn't hooked me yet :/
