Well, that's more true of FOX network than The Sci-Fi Channel.

I bought The Dresden Files DVD set a few days ago, but haven't watched it yet, because I'm on a SG-1 Season 10 streak, and have two episodes of that one left to watch. Are the Dresden Files episodes in the correct order on the DVD set, or did they follow the airing order (like WHV did with Crusade)? Is the correct airing order shown anywhere? I'm new to this show.

Re: The Dresden Files

I haven't read any of the Dresden Files books yet. That said, I found this to be a great show. Figures that The Sci-Fi Channel would cancel it.

Oh, I plan to read the books. I finished the DVD set on Sep. 21st and like to read related books after having watched the TV episodes because it gives me visuals and voices to plug in as I read, and because people who read the books first are usually the ones who are most disappointed and virulently against what they saw on TV. Most of the reviewers of "The Dresden Files" who have trashed the TV show, are the ones who read the books first.

Re: The Dresden Files

I missed the very last episode that aired for the show on TV so I figured I could Netflix it. I forgot that the SciFi channel F'ed with the order of the episodes so the disc I got had all the episodes that I had already seen. Now I'm on the fence... I don't know if I want to buy the box set or just let it go. SciFi kicked the show to the curb. I was gonna write a letter & I normally don't do letters.

I was watching Deadwood the other day and the guy who played Dresden turned up in it. He was a hired gun that shot a cornish worker in a bar & then later he got his throat slit by Swaringen. At least the guy is getting work.

I've read:

Book 1 -Storm Front
Book 2 - Fool Moon
Book 3 - Grave Peril

...and am near the end of ...

Book 4 - Summer Knight.

Enjoyed 'em all, each more than the one before it, but putting Harry through greater and even greater hell and suffering is getting a tad old. Harry and Job have a lot in common. I've bought all the books thru White Night, and will be reading them all, in order. Waiting for Small Favor to come out in paperback.
