Hate to say it, as much as I love Dexter, it peaked a while ago and I feel it's run it's course.

And yes it's a good thing it's ending. The last few seasons have all been terrible.

I never finished season 6 because I got bored with the show. Time to let it go while it still has dignity left.

I think Dexter has been terrific viewing, although season 6 was the weakest but still entertaining. I thought season 7 was great myself, particularly the change in relationship between Deb and Dexter, and while I'd love the series to last as long as possible, I'd rather it ended on high instead of being dragged out needlessly. The events of season 7 pretty much mean that it had to end in season 8 really; the question just how will it end. I can't see it being a happily ever after kind of ending so I expect Dexter will die or be arrested. Not that I want it to end that way but it does seem inevitable IMO.

I had to stop watching a while back because Deb was so annoying. I vomit when she slept with Lundy.

I could see him being arrested again, but by whom is the question, as LaGuerta is dead, and who else knew what he was up to besides Deb? She couldn't as she's just as guilty now and Dexter could implicate her. Matthews does, but doesn't seem to care what Dexter does because he was friends with Harry Morgan.

He is no longer the same lovable serial killer since he abandoned the code.

Really? bad day mate?

Anyways, I never got into the show and the fact that everyone and I mean EVERYONE I know who has said it went to **** at the end leaves me from ever even attempting to watch it.

I know I should give it a try sometime and probably will :3

I wouldn't say it went to ****, the show always remained watchable and entertaining.

It's true it peaked with Season4, but that was such a good one that it was hard to follow.
It didn't help that 5 and 6 suffered from quite weak "baddies" though 7 was a slight improvement though.

As per most, while i'm happy it finishing, i will still be sad when the last every episode is over.

last season I thought was good....Season 5 / 6 that's another story.

Season 4 (John Lithgow - Trinity) is by FAR the best season of the series with Season 2 being a close second followed by the opening season.

Agreed, the last 2 seasons haven't been nearly as good imo.

My only problem with Deb is that she was always afraid of how others viewed her. Also her way of dealing with things bothered me. I hated how she would hide her issues instead, drink them away, and pop pills as it just made her more of an emotional wreck and less of a functional cop.

That is how alot of people are though, no one wants to watch perfect people on screen as it would be dull.

The character is definitely not someone i would get on with, but interesting to watch, compared to someone like Angel who is a character i think i would get on with, but he was dull to watch.
