Review of The Dresden Files

Ever since he was a boy, Harry Blackstone Copperfield Dresden, knew that monsters were real, just as he was able to make things happen simply with the force of his will. As he grew he began to learn of his magical heritage, given to him by his mother, and coveted by his Uncle, who would stop at nothing to possess it. Now that he is grown Harry is the only private investigator / wizard in Chicago and listed in the phone book. He uses real magic to help him solve his cases, much to the chagrin of both the police and the magical establishment, whose shadow wars often spill into the 'real' world and involve people who have no idea just how magical, and dark, the world can be. Based on Jim Butcher's best-selling novels, The Dresden Files.

What's wrong with this review?

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

If you haven't read the books this show is pretty good, but not great. The best thing about it is the main actor. He truly portrays Dresden even if the rest of the show doesn't. I do wish that the network had given it more of a chance. It's biggest issue is that it tried to cram too many plot points from too many of the books into a limited number of episodes. I wish that they had taken their time and gotten the desciptions of the rest of the main char correct. Either do it by the book or don't do it. Jim Butcher is amazing and as cool as this show was (and could have been) this show isn't close to holding a candle to the books.
