The Dresden Files

Post  Berry on 2007-04-10, 02:02

A book series by Jim Butcher has been made into a tv series. I have watched from the beginning. It's likeable and getting better and better. I hope it gets renewed but no decision has been made yet.

I always watch it. I suppose it would have been better to have read the books first, but we're gradually learning the back-stories and "hints and tricks" . Next week is the season finale. I hope it gets renewed. I prefer the pure supernatural episodes with the gobblededook dialog, like this week with the office being transported to the "death zone" . The ones where they find a body killed by a monster or something are more routine and not as entertaining.

A good hint that they will be renewed is that the powers that be have just talked to Jim Butcher about licensing some Dresden stuff to sell.

I definitely liked the episodes at the end of the season. Why have a show about a wizard and not show off his powers? I really liked those eps best.

I live in hopes that James Marsters will be asked to play a guest role in the 2nd season....there's a character called Thomas Raith that he would be perfect for. :bounce:

Don't want to get you too excited. It is not currently airing and there is no word yet on whether or not it will be renewed. Wink

OOOH! I am thinking 'positive' that it will return. I would like to see this show go a little more to the mental on the mystical fiction....don't know if I expressed that well. I need to think as well as watch.

But I truely want it back. I have a lot of questions about Harry. What was the trouble his mother was in? Why is he really keeping so a low key when all is known about his moment of black magic. Why dosen't he use his magic to keep from getting beaten up? Tell us more about his family lineage.

Although this break is giving me time to read the book (s) before it returns, I can still watch the show via Tivo.

This is the only thing I can find regarding a second season...

[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]


Renew the Dresden Files!


See [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] with the campaign to save Harry!




We need to increase the number of snailmail letters sent to the SCIFI channel!
Have
you written an email to SCIFI, but not gotten around to sending in
snailmail? An easy way to find time to send a hardcopy letter... go to
your Sent Mail folder, print out copies of the email you sent to SCIFI,
and stuff them in an envelope.
Also, a few fans have reported getting bounce messages from the SCIFI server. Could be we are overwhelming their server
with pleas to renew the show... please, if your email message is returned, could you send it again?


What are The Dresden Files?


The Dresden Files is a television series adapted from the books of Jim Butcher ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][color:0d8f=#000000:0d8f][url=]),
about wizard/private investigator Harry Dresden. Set in Chicago, the
show stars Paul Blackthorne as Harry Dresden, Terence Mann as his
ethereal assistant Bob, Valerie Cruz as Lt. Connie Murphy, Conrad
Coates as Morgan, and Raoul Bhaneja as Kirmani. A fast-paced urban
fantasy peppered with humor and wit, The Dresden Files is one of
the best new series on television. A must-see for fans of the fantastic![/url]

[url=] [/url][url=]The official website for the show (which currently has the entire season finale available to watch online, if you want
to get a taste of the series): [/url][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
.

The entire first season is available through iTunes.

TO OUR FANS OVERSEAS:
I've started getting emails from fans outside the U.S. -- thank you for
emailing SCI FI in support of the show! If you live outside of the U.S.
and would like to participate in the snailmail campaign too, you can
send me an email at [email][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/email] with your comments, addressed to Mr. Stern and Ms. Hammer, along with your name and your location (city & country) and I'll
print it out and mail it to them for you. Every piece of mail counts!




Please tell your friends about this website, so they can help save Harry too!




Want to get involved in the campaign to save Harry? Email me at [email][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/email] to volunteer your time and/or ideas.

Let the world know you're a Dresden Files fan! Leave your mark in our guestbook...
If
you post positive remarks about the show in the guestbook (what you
like about it, what you think they do well, what you'd like to see more
of in season two), I'll print out those remarks and mail them in to the
network executives and the show's producers, along with the overseas
letters.



Why not throw a letter-writing party? Buy a book of stamps and a box of envelopes, order a pizza, and have fun while expressing
your support for the show!
Hosting a Save Harry party? Take pics and send us some -- we'll post them here on the site!



If you like The Dresden Files, either the show or the books by Jim Butcher, you'll probably enjoy these other authors
of urban fantasy...





  • Rachel Caine
  • Charlaine Harris
  • Laurell K. Hamilton
  • Mercedes Lackey (Children of the Night, Burning Water)
  • Kelley Armstrong
  • Kim Harrison
  • Tanya Huff

    Write the SciFi Channel and ask them to renew The Dresden Files



    We've learned that the SciFi Channel hasn't decided yet whether or not to renew The Dresden Files
    for a second season. Rumor has it that this decision will be made
    sometime in May or June -- so there's still time for us to let them
    know we'd like to see more of this show!

    If you've enjoyed The Dresden Files, please take a minute to write the SciFi Channel and ask them to put this show back
    on the air for one more season.

    Two ways to contact the SciFi Channel:
    Snail Mail: I'm told that a postcard or letter from a fan has a much bigger impact on tv execs than email,
    so if you can spare the time, here are the two individuals you want to write:

    Mark Stern, Executive VP Original Programming

    NBC Universal/Sci-Fi Channel

    100 Universal City Plaza, Bld. 1440, 14th Fl.

    Universal City, CA 91608

    Bonnie Hammer, President

    NBC Universal/Sci-Fi Channel

    30 Rockefeller Plaza

    New York, NY 10112

    Email: If you have time for both, or if you can't manage snail mail, you could also send an email to:

    [email][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][/email]

    No
    need to write a masterpiece -- a short, polite note telling them what
    you like about the show and asking them to keep it going is enough. If
    you've introduced others to the show, it probably wouldn't hurt to
    mention that either.

    Want a little more help writing your letter?

As an old jump-on-any-bandwagon to join a letter writing campaign to save a show I like....I believe,in this case,it is unnecessary. Dresden Files is MADE by Scifi,got good enough ratings and they've contacted Butcher about giving them the right to license products based on his book....if that doesn't spell "renewal",I don't know what does. :whee:

Post  Space Pilot on 2007-05-28, 22:47

Oh Berry, I hope so. Scifi listen to the viewer, don't they? This show for me, was like Roswell, it touched your imagination as well as your sole.

There is so much room for developing the character line up. The first season did not give much in terms of the Dresden linage of the magic world, so they could forward or backwards in time while currently saving the world.

Waiting and watching

Wonder how many of those "Jericho nuts" were once "Roswell Dreamers?" Well good for them for getting 7 more episodes... I will miss Ramey's character very much....but it will be interesting to see what happens now. Will it go beyond the 7 episodes? I'd be surprised.

Posted by Lady2theMax on the OTO Yahoo Group:

I have just visited GoPetition and found the following page very interesting:

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

If you love The Dresden Files, sign the petition!

AND

Hi all!

Just saw this at the Sci-Fi Channel's board and thought it might be of interest to those who LOVED The Dresden Files!

Sit-In: A form of peaceful protest where protesters sit in an appropriate place and refuse to move.

On November 9th, the Sci-Fi Channel is airing the first repeats of the Dresden Files since the end of Season 1 – this is our opportunity to form our own peaceful protest of the Dresden Files’ non-renewal!

Since we’re scattered across the country and the world, we can’t hold a Sit-In in one location – unless we do it VIRTUALLY!!
SO:

ALL Dresden Files fans are hereby invited/encouraged/requested to converge on the Dresden Forum on scifi.com on Nov. 9th at 6:45 PM ET for a Dresden Files View-In!

Sci-Fi Channel is paid by companies advertising on their website, and therefore keeps track of the ‘traffic’ the site receives. So let’s show them the power of the Dresden Files fans and the magic of Harry & Bob!!

We’ll watch the episode, laugh and have fun, trade comment posts with fellow fans, and most importantly – show the Sci-Fi Channel execs and the media, by the SHEER NUMBER of us logged on and posting, that the Dresden Files IS loved & supported by a HUGE fan base and will continue to be so during Season 2+!!!

I hope to ‘see’ everyone here – and tell your friends & family!

This was on James Marsters Official site today:

JAMES TO RECORD FIFTH DRESDEN

[11-6-07] James has been contracted to read his fifth book on tape in the Dresden Files book series. Although Death Masks is the next book in sequence, he will be recording Small Favor, which is the most recent in the series and, according to the Dresden Files website, due for release April, 2008. James will be in the studio later this month to begin the project. A new publishing company, Penguin Audio, has been hired to release the book. More details to be posted when available.

Dresend is back!

My Tivo actually taped the show! I have watched it, Oh, about 20 times now. I hope it is on again tonight.

Wheeler is out late tonight, so I get to spend the evening first watching Roswell (3 or 4 epis) and then dresend files.

Happy Friday

Cool beans. Also this Saturday is a special made-for-tv movie of Battlestar Gallactica:Razor. I think it's a prequel where you don't need to know what has already happened on that show. It just shows you how it came to be. sunny
