I have to say that for the most part, TV programming has become total crap. I usually keep myself busy with movies or reruns of shows from back in the day. Their are only a select few TV shows that can keep me entertained these days.
One of those shows is Dexter. The series is about a blood spatter technician who works out of the Miami Metro police department. It's more that just another cop show as Dexter has a secret, he uses his cop connections to seek out the guilty, and slay them. That's right, he's a serial killer, and he's the good guy! The series has completed it's 6th season and I'm impatiently waiting for the 7th season, as the last episode left the biggest cliffhanger yet.
The great thing about Dexter is that their are a lot of complex characters that have been built up over the seasons. Dexter has a sister, who is a police officer that works with Dexter, and she has a special relationship with her brother that could almost be made into a show of it's own. These characters, along with some crude humor and a decent amount of blood and boob, make for a real TV treat.
I highly recommend you check out Dexter, especially if your a fan of shows like Criminal Minds or CSI. Don't screw around and start by watching season 6 as you need to start at the beginning. It took me almost 3 months to watch the first 6 seasons, but I'm so glad that I did. I can hardly wait until season 7, sometime in September/October 2012.
