Re: The Dresden Files
 
The 1st Sample Chapter for Cold Days is online if anybody out their is like me & needs their fix. I kinda enjoyed starting Changes on Chapter 6 when the book came out. Either they didn't post chapters for Ghost Story or I just don't remember reading them.

Chapter 2 comes out November 6th.
Chapter 3 on the 13...
& Chapter 4 will be available on the 20th.

Then the book on the 27th...



[EDIT]... links added.

Chapter 1
Chapter 2
Chapter 3
Chapter 4

Did you get your copy yet? Mine is on the way (ordered on 11/16). BTW, I just rewatched "The Dresden Files" in the Production Order, which is much better than Sci-Fi's order. I wish it had continued, even if it wasn't exactly faithful to the books. However, S1E12 "Second City" was a good ending, for what we got.

Well, first off... I strategically located myself next to a Barnes & Nobles for Thanksgiving. Then I overstayed my welcome & waited until Tuesday to come home. So of course it had to snow that morning. But yeah, they opened up at 9 & I got in there a little after that... got home & cracked the book open at like 10ish.

I probably could have finished it the same day but I managed to put the book down later in the evening. I was gonna just read a chapter or two today but it sucked me in again & I finished it off this morning.



I have to say... I think it's the best book yet. I won't give out any spoilers but a lot of unanswered questions are finally answered. How often does that happen, right? You find out what's up with Demonreach. You find out more about the Winter & Summer courts... lots of stuff answered, new questions added though.

At first I wasn’t a fan of the twist ending... but after a couple hours it sunk in & grew on me. My problem was I thought it was gonna go one way and then was unhappy when it didn't go that way.

I knew it! Truth be told, I bet you put your hand on the book, close your eyes and absorb it. :lol: I got sidetracked with catching up with CSI (watched Seasons 1 thru 12 straight through, and now I'm caught up with Season 13.) and Criminal Minds (watched Seasons 5 thru 7 straight through and now I'm caught up with Season 8.) when I was about halfway through Turn Coat, so I'm going to go back and read Turn Coat from the beginning, and then read Changes, Ghost Story, Cold Days and Side Jobs.

My copy and John W. Campbell Jr.'s "Who Goes There?" Seven Tales of Science Fiction arrived today.

Yeah... that was one of my main dislikes in the show. That & the one episode where he was charging it by spinning the crystal. Oh, & his blasting rod was a drum stick... I don't remember if he ever used it.



Paul Blackthorne did do a good job though... I've seen him on tv twice since Dresden Files. He had a small role in Deadwood, I think he ended up getting his throat slit, either that or got shot like everybody else.. & now he's in Arrow which I watch Wednsday nights. Not a bad show.

What's wrong with showing his wizard's staff? In the LotR movies, Gandalf had one. They made so many little but pointless changes. Is there something wrong with keeping things faithful to the books? Being faithful to the books would have BUILT audience. People would have talked it up instead of pointing out everything that was wrong and/or different.

Caution: Say that between Thanksgiving and Christmas and drumstick has a whole 'nother meaning. :lol:

No, he never used it. It got destroyed by one of the baddies, burnt to ashes in seconds. The hockey stick got used as a sort of blasting rod, though we never saw him cause a fire with it. We also never saw the pentacle used.

I liked the hockey stick when I first started watching the show... but then I started reading the books & found out it should have been an actual staff. Now I understand that it's weird to walk around in modern times with a wizard staff... but Harry does that in the books. If you think about it it's just as weird walking around with a hockey stick when you don't even play hockey.

I remember thinking how cool it was when he used his shield bracelet in that one episode. Then I read the books and I'm like... how could they make it look that tacky?

Harry never even got to use fire magic in the show and that's his thing. How many buildings has the guy accidentally burned down while using fire? A lot. Then in the show... not even one... "FUEGO!"

His staff could have been used like a walking stick and could double as a fighting pike.

:lol: I miss FUEGO! I even miss flickum bickus. Come to think of it, I can't recall where vocalizes a spell in the TV show. I guess the producers thought that'd be too much for the audience to handle.

I don't have a big problem with it. Check out "Bad Blood" in the flashback sequence when Harry and Bianca are talking at a bar. There are places in other episodes where his accent slips, but "Bad Blood" is where I first noticed it.


What I wish they'd do is make a theatrical movie out of each book, FAITHFUL TO THE BOOKS, starting with Storm Front, and put in all the R-rated stuff that they couldn't put in a non-pay channel TV show.

Ahh... Bianca. Were there any characters in the show that didn't get rewritten into something else by SyFy writers?

Morgan went form looking like Sean Connery to a Black dude.

Bianca went from crazy nemesis to bedfellow. I like to think they would have eventually pitted them against each other but whatever. They did the Red & Black Court Vampires the same.

Murphy went from blonde to brunette & somehow ended up with a kid from one off her marriages.

If Carmichael was in the show I don't think he was fat.

Bob got a body and a different back story. Which actually, I kinda liked the guy who played Bob.

I guess Marcone didn't get to exist yet... I don't remember him turning up and if they did the show off of the first couple books you woulda expected Marcone. He woulda been a great character for the show.

Of course DuMorne (the dead guy) gets a spot on the cast. In the show DuMorne kills his father and adopts him as his uncle or something. In the book they don't address how Daddy Dresden dies, at least I don't think they do. Cancer? Anyway, he dies & Harry goes to the orphanage.

Susan Rodriguez became a white, blonde chick.

No Michael... or any of the Carpenters.

That would be so awesome! I would actually help pay to make those movies... if I actually had that kinda doe. :p

Re: The Dresden Files
 
I wish somebody would come out with some The Dresden Files coffee mugs, from the book cover illustrations, new illustrations featuring more than just Harry from the books (however Jim Butcher imagines these characters looking.), and/or from the TV series, preferrably all of the above. I imagine that anything NOT involving the TV series would be much easier to accomplish.

Re: The Dresden Files
 
Follow-up my #96: I found three mug designs on Cafepress, but only one is something I want (the Dresden business card one). Go to cafepress and search on Dresden and Splattercon. Also check here in this forum:

I wish we could get mugs with The Dresden Files book cover art on 'em, like the avatars available on the bboard.

...
..
.

I watched a Jim Butcher vid the other night on youtube... It turns out he's a B5 fan!!! I mean, the guy throws all kinda nods to scifi stuff in his books, but I never noticed a B5 nod. Dresden himself is a Star Wars fan, Molly's a Star Wars/Trek fan. Anywho, this vid was like an hour long and about a half hour into it he says that he really loved a series called... Babylon 5..... and how it was very well done or something. I gotta go look for the link now.

Found it... link

He was talking about how the writers of B5 had done a great job forshadowing future events in the show. It's 31 minutes in if you don't wanna watch the whole thing. & don't worry about spoilers for Cold Days...


But yeah... he talked about a bunch of stuff in the vid. They asked him if Harry would ever actually wear a hat and he said if he did he would get him like the Indiana Jones Fedora hat or something like that.

When asked who he would want to play Harry Dresden the guy asking the question said anyone alive or dead & Jim Butcher said a 1977 Harrison Ford. I couldn't picture Harrison Ford playing Dresden but I gotta admitt it would be cool to see... if they perfected time travel I mean.

Also he said he has the rights back if they ever do decide to do a movie or movies... SyFy doesn't have jack.

Tough one... I started with the show. At the time I thought it was GREAT... but then I started reading the books & my opinion of the show slowly started to drop. I now think the show sucked. ;)

If you start with the tv show... watch it like it was the pilot for B5. :p

If you start with the books, keep in mind that... (IMHO) They don't really pick up until you get to Grave Peril (the 3rd Book), or Summer Knight (the 4th Book)... & be warned, (also IMHO) by the time you get to the end of Dead Beat (The 7th Book), the series will turn into an addictive substance, & you'll need to keep reading & rereading to get your fix.

[EDIT]

& I forgot to answer the second question... go me.

In watching the show, keep in mind that... Storm Front (aka Episode 8) was the pilot episode for the show and it was basically the 1st book pancaked into a crappy tv episode. Hair of the Dog was the pancake they made out of Fool Moon (the 2nd Book). It doesn't really matter what order you watch the show in because they did each episode as like a "stand alone" & I don't really think they tied into each other.

Watch Storm Front first though... then the rest as they come along.

KoshN March 15th 13 08:31

Re: The Dresden Files
 
Like Demonn, I, too, started with the TV show. I agree with 99% of what Demonn said, but I'm a little more forgiving of the show and wouldn't say that the show necessarily "sucked." When you watch the show, take things with a grain of salt, not like what the show says is cast in stone or is gospel. If I were you, I'd start with the show, Storm Front first. Here's the best order IMHO:

DvdEp, SciFi Airing, Production Order, Airdate, Title
D2E4, 8, 1x01, 18-Mar-07, Storm Front
D1E4, 4, 1x02, 18-Feb-07, Rules of Engagement
D1E1, 1, 1x03, 21-Jan-07, Birds of a Feather
D1E2, 2, 1x04, 28-Jan-07, The Boone Identity
D1E3, 3, 1x05, 11-Feb-07, Hair of the Dog
D2E3, 7, 1x06, 11-Mar-07, Walls
D2E1, 5, 1x07, 25-Feb-07, Bad Blood
D2E2, 6, 1x08, 4-Mar-07, Soul Beneficiary
D3E2, 10, 1x09, 1-Apr-07, What About Bob?
D3E1, 9, 1x10, 25-Mar-07, The Other Dick
D3E3, 11, 1x11, 8-Apr-07, Things That Go Bump
D3E4, 12, 1x12, 15-Apr-07, Second City

It's too bad that Sci-Fi scrambled the order and that it went that way onto the DVD set (like what happened to Crusade, with the TNT crappy order being used for that DVD set. :( :( :( )

I find that watching the show first helps me, as a starting point, to visualize the characters in the books. After that, I use the descriptions in the books to modify the look and personality of the characters. For characters who never appeared in the show, I cast actors who I've seen in the past for the roles that seem to suit them here. Then, as I read the books, it all plays out like a movie in my mind's eye. ;)

Welll. I can finally pick up my hold from the library. It;s curious, when I requested this I was 3rd on the list. I requested Game of Thrones, S2 at the same time. I was 183rd on that list. I watched it 2 weeks ago.:rolleyes: The good news is that IMCPL has all the books and they have low to no holds on them, and the author is young and healthy (urghmm, The late Mr Jordan) and publishes regularly AND frequently, with an end game in sight (Urghmmmm, Mr george RR martin). I'm looking forward to getting started.

Funny thing happened while watching DF: My DVD player died. On a Saturday night. I went Sunday morning to get a new one. I had checked the nearby BestBuy's web page and saw they had an open box panasonic 3d bluray and decided to upgrade. While there I noticed they had a 50' 3d panasonic plasma open box for under $800, incliuding tax, with free delivery. I now have a new 3d system.:bolian::cool:;)

I rather enjoeyd the show. Any program that has Pat Tallman and Claudia Black as guest stars is a good show.:rommie: Good call on watching Storm Front first. The hockey stick didn't bother me: I've spent a good deal of time in Chicago and wouldn't bat an eye if someone wandered by with one.:devil: He did use the drumstick in jail, to create a hologram. The FX were adequete, not brilliant, but not "cheesy". Paul B was a good casting choice, the lady cop ... not so much. I think it probably deserved a second season and if it had been on the CW network, would have gotten it. I'm rather impressed by CW's ability to foster shows and actually give them a chance, other networks should take heed.

I look forward to the books.

1. Can you remember anything about the plot of the episode you think Pat was in? If you threw me some clues, I could probably check it out. I OWN the DVD set.

2. Wizard talent is at odds with electronics. That's part of the reason Harry drives an OLD VW Beetle (WWII~Korean War era Jeep in the TV show). That's one of the areas where the TV show screwed up; they showed Harry and a girlfriend watching a DVD at Harry's. The more a wizard is using his/her powers or the more emotion they have going at the time (e.g. anxiety), the more likely the wizard will fry any electronics nearby, and the nearer, the worse the damage. Modern cars with computers won't survive long around Harry. PCs are of course out of the question.Sometimes he can keep himself restrained enough to use a modern car for a fairly short trip in a pinch.

"Birds of a Feather" - the ones with the guys who were crows, who were thought to be menacing, but were really protecting the boy? Marie Ward (Sheryl Sharpe, the boy's mother).

KoshN September 28th 13 15:01

Re: The Dresden Files
 
Demonn, you know what one thing I did like of the TV show over the book? The Jeep. To me, that makes more sense than an air-cooled VW beetle. Yes, with even that Jeep (looks like WWII or Korean War era), you have a water coolant system that can go wrong, but still, a no frills Jeep like that is rugged. Another Jeep weakness is the soft top (no protection) but it's also a strength, because Harry could blast things overhead more easily.

Maybe it's just that I like Jeeps (WWII thru Wranglers).

I liked the jeep too... plus it was American so it fit.

Demonn,

"Skin Game" - Book 15 of The Dresden Files is to be released on May 27th, 2014. When is the Kindle version usually released?

I have 'em all in either paperback or hardback, but also now have 'em on my new Kindle.

Demonn December 26th 13 19:02

Re: The Dresden Files
 
Pretty sure kindle has the same release date... I know I'd kill someone if I was waiting on the book & somebody was like, "oh yeah, I have that already on Kindle." But then I would also have my own Kindle after that. :p

I have the older paperbacks up until 10 or so & then all the newer hard covers. Just reread everything a month or two ago so I'm really looking 4ward to Skin Game.

Spoiler for Skin Game:
I was surprised to see that Nicodemous was still alive & kickin' when I read the thing for the book.. I was like 80% sure he was dead. I wanted him to be dead. Now I'm kinda glad he isn't though.

@MacBreck Same day! Amazon should add a preorder link soon. We'll post an announcement when it's available. (03:14 AM - 21 Dec 13)


BTW, I got paperbacks of #1 "Storm Front" thru #10 "Small Favor" and "Side Jobs." Starting with "Turn Coat" I went to hardbacks. However, now I have everything also on Kindle, including Blood Lite, Dangerous Women ("Bombshells" about Molly Carpenter, i.e. from her POV.), and Ghoul/Goblin.


ps. Based upon the title, I thought that "Skin Game" would be about skin walkers (naagloshii).

It might be... you never know, Harry might end up releasing some of them to fight the Nickleheads... or somebody else. I'm looking 4ward to whatever JB has in mind.

Hey, you never mentioned that at the end of Turn Coat, Harry and Ebenezar talk about forming a Grey Council. :D

How could you NOT think of it like that?

BTW, the spinoff of the TV show "Supernatural", "Supernatural: Tribes"

http://m.deadline.com/2014/02/daniel...spinoff-leads/

....is to be set in CHICAGO! Too bad "The Dresden Files" got cancelled. We could've had a crossover ep..


ps. "Divergent" March 24th and "Godzilla" (2014) May 16th. While I might go see Divergent, I WILL go see Godzilla. :D

I just didn't notice it. :p

To me... the White Council is the ruling body. The Grey isn't anything official and it's just what they call themselves. It never clicked in my head.

If there ever comes a point in the books where 9 of them are standing around a light fixture I'll definitely say something though. :p

I still gotta catch up on Supernatural... been watchin’ it on Netflix & I left off in the middle of whatever Season Dean came back from Hell.

The thing about watchin’ anything on Netflix is your always a season behind whatever is running on TV and you can never really catch up so why try?

I'll probably check out Divergent in theatres but I don't give a damn about the books.

Just watched the trailer for Godzilla the other day... it could be interesting I guess. I don't really get into monster movies though.

I did like Cloverfield though if you ever saw that one.

I, too, am a season behind on Supernatural because since dropping cable a year ago, I can no longer "get" The CW. I've bought Supernatural season sets ever since I got part way renting Season 1 on Netflix. So, I'm a season behind, too. In the fall, I buy the new season set and finish it in 2 or 3 days.

Godzilla (and the one Gorgo movie) is are pretty much my sole interest in monster movies. Yeah, I watched Cloverfield (because I like Lizzy Caplan ever since The Class TV show, and True Blood :D :drool:). I've never been able to stand ape movies, though.
