If you are a big fan of Stargate SG-1 or Dr. Who, The Dresden Files is a perfect fit to satisfy your hunger for sci fi tales. It's a great show with unique stories full of mystery and intrigue based on the books by Jim Butcher.
This was an amazingly fresh new series that was good enough to sink your teeth into, week after week.
Simply put, it was an adult version of Harry Potter, a grown up wizard named Harry Dresden along with his sidekick Bob. Bob is Harry's snooty mentor, hilariously portrayed by Terrance Mann, who is imprisoned in his own skull as punishment for dabbling in black magic.
Harry, deliciously played by Paul Blackthorne with a lost puppy dog expression, is a lone wizard that actually advertises his business in the yellow pages, who always seemed to find himself surrounded by trouble. Or trouble always seemed to find him.
Whether it be battling against sultry vampires, seductive werewolves, creepy skinwalkers, spooky shapeshifters, or helping solve cases with his cop friend, Murphy, he does his best in protecting the city of Chicago from dangerous threats day after day. What a guy. Heck, I just want to give him a big hug.
The Dresden Files has been by far one of the best shows on television this past year (2007) pulling in at least 1.7 million viewers on a weekly basis. Many fans who watched this series have gotten addicted to Jim Butcher's novels, who just recently released a new addition called "White Night".
Unfortunately, it was a short lived series on SCI-FI and recently cancelled which is a shame since it was a superb show that was truly a magical experience.
