Dexter: New Blood Season 1 Blu-ray Review

Official Synopsis: The world at large believes Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall) died in a tragic boating accident, and in a way the world at large isn’t wrong. Far from the life he knew, living under a false name in the small town of Iron Lake, New York, he’s successfully tamped down his Dark Passenger for nearly 10 years. With a normal job and a Chief of Police girlfriend, it seems he’s got life under control – until his son shows up and turns his world upside down. Rattled, Dexter yields to his homicidal urges and soon finds himself on a collision course with a very dangerous local.

I loved the original Dexter series, and while the revival, Dexter: New Blood wasn’t perfect, there was a lot to like about it. So being able to watch it again to review the Blu-ray was fun. I especially love Julia Jones as Dexter’s girlfriend and seeing the return of Jennifer Carpenter as Dexter adopted sister Deb. Having Harrison show up out of the blue definitely brought an interesting dynamic to both Dexter the man and Dexter the series!

As for the four-disc Blu-ray set, it features all 10 episodes that aired on Showtime plus some great extras.

Disc 1 includes episodes 1-3, “Cold Snap,” “Storm of Fuck,” & “Smoke Signals.” It also includes two special features: “Why Now?” — Showrunner Clyde Phillips and stars Michael C. Hall & Jennifer Carpenter talk about what to expect in the revival series; & “Dissecting Dexter: New Blood – Deb is Back” — Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter dive into their roles as Dexter and Deb Morgan.

Disc 2 includes episodes 4-6, “H is for Hero,” “Runaway,” & “Too Many Tuna Sandwiches.” It also includes the special feature “Dissecting Dexter: New Blood – The Kill Room” — Viewers get a behind-the-scenes look at Dexter’s kill room and the psychology of it all. Fascinating stuff, but I could have used a lot more!

Disc 3 includes episodes 7-9, “Skin of Her Teeth,” “Unfair Game,” & “The Family Business.” There are no special features on disc 3.

Finally, disc 4 includes the season finale episode, “Sins of the Father,” as well as the special feature “All Out on the Table.” Viewers will enjoy a whopping thirty-minute retrospective about the making of the show as the cast and crew lay it “all out on the table” to dissect their characters, as well as revealing exclusive behind-the-scenes moments, breaking down the emotional finale, and more.

Overall, this is a beautiful Blu-ray set and a fantastic show, well worth buying and watching for a first (or second!) time.
