Although he justifies his murderous behavior as doing a favor to society, Dexter gets off on blood, death, and killing. Enough said.
Positive Role Models & Representations
This series is about a killer, so blood (dripping, pooling, clotting) abounds. There are several graphic shots of dead bodies that have been completely decapitated and dismembered. Dexter chops up all of his victims and disposes of them in garbage bags that he dumps in the bay. Other violent acts include shouting, pushing, choking, and strangling. Subjects touched on in the series include rape, pedophilia, domestic violence, and the twisted mind of serial killers.
Several sex scenes, some female nudity.
"F--k" and other curse words fly freely, including "s--t," "tits," "damn," "bastard," and "bitch."
Ease of Play
Illegal drugs are discussed occasionally in relation to crime scenes and police matters.
