Dexter likes Jimbo's

Dexter Kills at Jimbo's Place in Season Premiere

Score another one for

Jimbo's Place

's amazing tally of television and movie scene credits. Showtime's


is the latest victim to fall prey to Jimbo's charms. In the season premiere, Miami's favorite serial killer goes more psycho than usual on a country bumpkin looking to unload in Jimbo's restroom. He should know better than to call Dexter names, but when he insults his dead wife, well, it's time to break out that Glad Wrap. Dexter doesn't mind getting a little dirty on this one--making a fine mess of, let's face it, an innocent victim (even if he was a major league asshole).

Check out the grizzly murder scene (starting at 46:00) on the jump:

Dexter is the latest in a long line of television shows and

movies to film at the dilapidated structure on Virginia Key.  Once upon a

time Jimbo's used to be one of the best kept secrets in Miami. Now,

it's challenging  Ocean Drive and the downtown Miami skyline for the

most shot location in town. Not that you could tell by state of the

place. Though it is among the most sought after film spots in town, the place

looks like it could collapse at any  moment--even if that is part of its allure. After a rough go of it earlier this year--

including a fire-- Jimbo's future is looking better in part as a result

of a major public support for the Miami institution.

Jimbo's as good a place to get murdered as anywhere in Miami.

The limelight doesn't look to be shining away from Jimbo's any time soon as we hear the team at Burn Notice is using Virginia Key for exterior locations shots. Some of the movies shot at Jimbo's include Island Claws, Blood and Wine , Wild Things, Porky's II, Ace Ventura, True Lies, and 2 Fast 2 Furious. Before Dexter and Burn Notice, the following shows shot at Virginia Key, Flipper, Gentle Ben, Miami Vice, Glades, Going to California, Karen Sisco and CSI Miami.
