This is the best show of its kind I have ever seen, bar none. I've read all of Jim Butcher's Dresden Files books and loved them all...finding that this series actually EXISTED has been a delight! The acting is top notch. Harry and Bob...perfect choices. Ditto the scripts and effects. It is inconceivable to me that this show was cancelled. Maybe it was too close to what is possible. Or what is.... 'There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.' - Hamlet (1.5.166-7), Hamlet to Horatio

I agree that the books are better but this series was still good! The humor and the casts kept me entertained. I really wished they didnt cancel it!!!!

I've only read the first book in the Dresden Files series, so perhaps I'm not fully qualified to comment, but I found the show to be fun and charmingly cheesy. I watched the whole series in two days and was glad that there were no cliffhangers in the last episode, though it doesn't go so far as to wrap up the show or anything. More seasons would have been ideal, but this is the next best thing and great for a marathon.

I haven't read the book, so I can't say if it is good or not. But aside from that I've really enjoyed this show!

I enjoyed it but felt incomplete for a mini-series. 3.5/5

The irony pf seeing Paul Blackthorne playing a magician on Necessary Roughness recently did not escape me - spooky really.......

Yet another good television series that was canceled before its time. I stumbled upon this show completely by accident and I loved it. I'm not sure if I'd vote to bring it back though. In fact, most of the time, the books are better than the show itself.

Excellent show, that should have been allowed to become another fantasy staple like Charmed/Buffy/etc. I've even signed petitions to try and bring it back since first running across it.

i kept seeing this pop up, as a suggestion....i got a hold a book, from a friend....and i thought the title and names, was soooo familiar sounding...lol guess who added this series as a favorite. but i agree, its only loosely based on the books. and the editing can get choppy, making the storyline a bit hard to keep up with. but all in all, a decent show.

Really enjoyed that show. Pity it got cancelled. I guess I will have to read the books now (lucky I like to read too). 9/10

No, I doubt there'd be another season because i cant remember what channel aired this, but they didnt actually promote this show so it didnt actually get much attention. The books are amazing and I've read them and they really are better than the TV series.. I'd suggest you read the books first and then watch this. but that's my opinion :)
