That's sort of what I was thinking too. I realize every week can't be a Greywalker novel and it wouldn't be fair to expect that. But it'd be fun to see the characters adapted to a new setting. Smaller less initmate problems sound good though maybe break those up with a season finale that's a bit bigger.

On the Dresden Files note I'll say this I was excited about the show and it was actually pretty good. But it wasn't the Dresden Files in anything but name which I think turned some of the books fans off to it. Still I'm glad Jim Butcher got the exposure and it brought new people in and got them interested in his books. I'd say more about it because I do have more reasons but I don't want to set anyone off.
It is better to chase your dreams down the street and fall flat on your face than to sit on your porch and watch them pass you by.
