Boobs in Dexter

I will renew my praise for Dexter after I started watching the second season, which added a lot of understanding to the inner daemons facing our anti-hero. So even though many people are rooting for him, he has become less strict with his killing, and may be falling in the pit of more traditional serial killers, if there is such thing as a traditional serial killer. But I digress, the title of the post says it all, and my comment goes to the breasts of the women in Dexter, or more precisely, their size. I do not mean this in a bad way, as the little I have read on the net about the subject criticize the women in the show for having small breasts.

On the contrary, I think that it is a very interesting thing to do in American television, to show sexy women without oversized breasts, clearly indicating breast implants, trying to impose a certain body type as the most desirable. Most women there do seem like natural and fit, but not surgically modified. So it seems that they are stimulating people to be fit (depicting plenty of exercise), but not unreal expectations. Good stuff. Body modification seem to have become the norm on other media. I have even read somewhere that many would-be actresses have chosen to put breast implants to improve their odds at landing a role in holywood, which is a bit sad. Of course there is an exception, the Brit girl who has a fling with the protagonist, though small-breasted looks a bit weird by having quite disproportionate lips. If I am wrong here, please correct me.
