Re: Sci-fi Brilliant but Canceled or little known gems
2. The Dresden Files - I never read the books, which was probably a good thing in terms of watching the show. I think the show was pretty good, actually. But I think that the problem came with those who had read all the books and thought those were better. Rarely are movies better than the books they are made from...and same with TV shows. I think Dresden suffered not because it was bad, but because it wasn't as good as the books for the viewers who had read them.
The TV series introduced me to the books, and yeah, the books are better, but the series is enjoyable enough in it's own right, and gets better as the series goes on.
One more anal-probing gyro-pyro levitating ecoplasm alien anti-matter story and I'm going to take out my gun and shoot somebody.
