RARA-AVIS: Re:Dexter

I'm a TV Dexter fan, but I do agree with the comment about the seemingly endless length of the opening credit sequence. Plus there's something about it that seemed off. I finally realized what it was. We see closeups of Dexter nicking himself while shaving, drops of bright red blood being blotted by a snip of toilet paper. But Dexter is never clean-shaven. Always has that day-old stubble. I've always wondered how series leads from the era of Miami Vice to Dexter have managed to maintain that one-day stubble. Must take a lot of concentration. Or maybe a testosterone adjustment.
