Dexter: The Third Season

 (TV) (2008)

Dexter: The Third Season Blu-ray delivers stunning video and great audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

Dexter is a crime drama about Dexter Morgan, a man who leads a double life as an incredibly likeable forensics expert for the Miami Police Department and as an emotionless vigilante serial killer. Taught by his foster father to harness his lust for blood and killing, Dexter lives by his own strict moral code - he only kills murderers who can't otherwise be brought to justice. Dexter is a killer who grapples with fitting into society while, at the same time, he struggles with his inability to feel emotion. The irony of Dexter's life is that he works closely as a blood splatter analyst with the very people who hunt his kind - the homicide department.

For more about Dexter: The Third Season and the Dexter: The Third Season Blu-ray release, see Dexter: The Third Season Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Starring: Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Carpenter, David Zayas, Julie Benz, James Remar, Yvonne Strahovski
Directors: John Dahl, Steve Shill, Keith Gordon, Marcos Siega, Ernest R. Dickerson, Romeo Tirone

Dexter: The Third Season Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

Dexter: The Complete Third Season features a bold and striking 1080p/AVC-encoded transfer that faithfully retains Manos' every aesthetic intention, and every detail of the series' unsettling imagery. While it will come as little surprise to anyone familiar with Romeo Tirone's simmering photography, contrast is overblown, skintones swelter with summery hues, and Miami's eccentric palette is given free reign over every frame. However, it all works wonderfully within the context of Dexter's devilish design. Absorbing blacks set an ominous tone, crisp whites peel back the layers of its characters' psyches, and crystal clear fine detail deftly renders every leering face and shocking revelation that graces the screen. Moreover, close-ups are populated with refined textures and carefully defined edges, and establishing shots are peppered with cracking paint, flecks of blood, and dilapidated brickwork. Even nighttime sequences, as oppressive and noisy as they sometimes are, suit Dexter's dark deeds nicely, and draw viewers deeper and deeper into his nightmarish dreamscape. Better still, artifacting, banding, crush, unintentional noise, and aliasing are kept to an absolute minimum, and edge enhancement (while present to some degree) never becomes a distraction.

I'm sure there are some people who will balk at the series' overheated visuals and searing contrast levels -- as well as the soft and hazy appearance of Dexter's surreal encounters with his dead father -- but, in my humble opinion, it all comes together to create something beautiful; something Paramount's technical transfer handles in effortless stride. Fans and videophiles alike will be thrilled by the results.


Dexter: The Third Season Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

The Complete Third Season delivers a sonic experience comparable to its previously released Dexter brethren with a solid, at-times engrossing Dolby TrueHD 5.1 surround track; one that catches every slash, splash, and smash the narration-heavy episodes throw its way. First and foremost, the delicate siren-song of Hall's serial-sermons is hypnotic. Set to hauntingly ethereal piano music, his every predatory word and twisted justification is warm, intelligible, and perfectly prioritized in the soundscape. The series' standard dialogue is just as strong, following the laws of vocal weight and convincing interior acoustics to the letter. Granted, LFE output isn't as punchy as newcomers might expect, but it lets loose anytime Dexter or Miguel indulge in their darkest urges. Likewise, rear speaker activity isn't aggressive in every scene, but makes its presence known throughout season three, enhancing every Miami locale, expanding every interior space, and supporting every eruption of violence with tenacity and precision. That being said, I do have two legitimate (albeit admittedly negligible) complaints -- normalization and pan transparency are a bit inconsistent from time to time, and may occasionally distract the most stringent audiophiles among you.

Regardless, Dexter: The Complete Third Season sounds great, and should easily satisfy fans of the show. I couldn't ask for much more.
