The best opening credits TV has witnessed. Miss it beyond words. Even though the ending was very far from what the series deserved and very much a disappointment, the whole 8 seasons were as consistent as you can ask for in a show. Michael C. Hall delivers one of the most memorable performances in TV history.
I enjoyed the dark bent of Seasons 1-4, but even then it was hard for me to reconcile the difference in acting acumen between Michael C. Hall and some of the guest actors on one end of the scale and the likes of Jennifer Carpenter and David Zayas at the other end. Also the Vince Masuka character was yuck. It was always a dumb show, but it felt worth watching in the beginning. 3.5 stars
until the end of season 5, it was great... But the braveness from the 4th finale constrasts with the unexplainable cowardice from the fifth´s ending, and from there, one of my favorite shows ever, went downhill to unforeseen limits.
