The serial killer drama's 10-episode revival is a chance to atone for past mistakes with a do-over, says Ben Lindbergh. "There are two sides to Dexter’s legacy, as there are to its titular protagonist," says Lindbergh. "As with the murderous character, one of those sides is a lot less pretty than the other. There’s the presentable, prestige-TV veneer of a long-running, largely critically acclaimed series that was nominated for 24 Emmys, won four, and established Mr. Morgan as leading man Michael C. Hall’s most recognizable role. And then there’s one of those 'hidden truths that lie beneath the surface' that Dexter once described: The show had a horrible ending. As in, all-time, notoriously terrible, to the extent that the series is now better known for its infamous failure to stick any semblance of a non-punch-line landing than it is for the good-to-great seven seasons that preceded that stain on its rep."
