Michael C. Hall not impressed with the end of Dexter

Actor Michael C. Hall can understand why TV viewers were unimpressed with the final shows of his hit thriller Dexter – because he wasn’t a huge fan either. In a new Daily Beast interview, Hall admits the drama series may have overstayed its welcome on TV – and he still hasn’t seen the finale.
He says, “I think the show had lost a certain amount of torque. Just inherently because of how long we’d done it, because of the storytelling capital we’d spent, because our writers may have been gassed. Maybe some people wanted a more satisfying… happy ending for him (Dexter). Either a happy ending or a more definitive sense of closure.
“They wanted him to die or something, but I think the fact that he’s sort of exiled in a prison of his own making is, for my money, pretty fitting.”
In the finale, Hall’s Dexter faked his own death after his adopted sister died.
As for how he would have liked his good-natured vigilante killer to have ended the series, Hall explains, “Sometimes I wish he’d offed himself (committed suicide).”
