The show was well done but they just changed too much for me to really accept it as Dresden you know? I'm sorry if that makes me picky but thats just the way it is. There was no blue beetle, no duster, no mouse, no mister, no basement apartment, no classic detective office, and all the other little changes.

I give Sci Fi credit for The Adventures of Screw-On Head though which was an out of the park home run... even if they did decide not to make it a show and went with doing just a thirty minute pilot.
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.
