I somewhat agree with you about Dexter, but when the villain is good it is GOOd. He is amazing on his own though. For ex. the first season was my favorite, and the villain there was great and had a good twist, so therefore, good season. Season 2 was good but not as good, season 3 was okay, but season 4 with John Lithgow was almost at season 1 levels of awesome.
