I really do. Dexter is easily the best written in my mind. Last season was fantastic. The third season dipped a tiny bit. But I have yet to see any show that even comes close to touching season one and season 4. Son's of Anarchy is great but it's a blatant rip off of the soprano's. Breaking Bad is Fantastic. But they don't know how to write a season. They leave too many threads open and don't know where the show is actually supposed to go yet. It's as if they are writing the show as they go. The real magic of Dexter is that if they said ok that is the last season. They make it its own capsule. You feel quite satisfied as they have managed to tie the season up in a nice bow. There is another show that managed to do this as well and that is Sleeper Cell first season.
Agree with all of this. Dexter is still about the best series on TV, though Breaking Bad is wonderfully acted, but not as well written (in my not so humble opinion). SOA is great - I wish I could get it some other way than subscribing to Superchannel or downloading it) -- though it was getting a little lame at the end of last season. Like Walt and Jesse, some of the SOA gang needs to improve their criminaling skills...they have very short attention spans. But, great shows, head and shoulders above almost anything else on TV these days.
