HARRY DRESDEN -- WIZARD Lost Items Found. Paranormal Investigations. Consulting. Advice. Reasonable Rates.No Love Potions, Endless Purses, Parties, or Other Entertainment. Harry Dresden is the only wizard who advertises in the Chicago yellow pages. And he's the real deal. Charms. Potions. Spells even. Dresden is a haunted man (in more ways than one) who has sinned and been sinned against. But in the darkness of his past, he finds an inner strength and a driving desire to set things right. Armed with his trusty staff (okay, it's a hockey stick) and winning personality (if you don't mind the snarky sense of humor), and aided and abetted by his annoying spiritual advisor, Bob (doomed soul, expert in magic, noodge), Dresden champions the underdog against all manner of supernatural threats -- for five hundred dollars a day. Plus expenses. Dresden doesn't do parties and he doesn't do love potions. But if the hocus starts to pocus, if the going gets... strange, if the things that go bump in the night start packing a punch, call him. He's in the book. Based on the best-selling novels by Jim Butcher, The Dresden Files has been described as being a lot like Harry Potter... if Harry Potter had been written by the illegitimate love child of Raymond Chandler and Douglas Adams.

The actor who played Harry wasn't too bad. Having said that, this is disappointing if you're a fan of the novels. They changed a key character to be "ethnic" thus removing the humor in that character's appearance. I could go on. At least they didn't insist on putting a hat on Harry (fan joke). If you haven't read the novels and would like to, be aware that the show does have plot spoilers.

the first few episodes were extremely cheesy. after episode 3 I had doubts if I wanted to continue to bother with the other few or not.
1x05 is the only good episode in this series.

the biggest 'miss' in this series is that there is no proper pilot.
you just get thrown in there. no character build up, no red line in the series. just a number of stories or scripts based on a book line thats made into series....

too bad, there was some nice potential there, but it's really not surprising it got cancelled

Had potential but it was just too cheesy & the music was aggressively terrible.
