    standard dictionary definition. For example, Dexter is an American crime drama that takes an aspect of justice as its setting and uses it to invoke the audience to contemplate the idea of justice. With this in mind, the producers of Dexter make both a idealistic and realistic claim: the ideals of modern justice are catching criminals and penalizing them for their crimes, yet because the legal system and the people who serve it are flawed, the producers seek to critique the definition of justice…
