Okay, so last night I also got to see the premier of The Dresden Files. Mind you, I've been a Jim Butcher fan for a while now, and had a bit of apprehension when it came to Sci Fi basically screwing up a perfectly good series... They happen to do this to just about everything that came originally from a book as far as I can tell. Dune was about the only exception and even that was different from the book. We won't even discuss Earthsea.... This is mostly because I didn't see it, but only heard about the horrors.

The main problem, as near as I can tell, is that Sci Fi is owned by USA.... Read "Lowest Common Denominator CRAP".. USA execs are usually the driving force for me Not watching TV. Canned Farscape... Didn't pick up Firefly (though that's probably a Good thing...) And lets not forget the royal screw around that JMS had to go through with 'em. Were they renewing Crusade or not?? Hard to tell at the time. So, when it came down to the Dresden Files, I tried to keep an open mind, even despite the early news that things were not always according to the way Butcher writes....
Book and Series spoilers.. For those of you that haven't read things yet.. )

And despite all that, if you took Butcher out of it.. If you've Never read the books, nor had the expectations, it might be and okay low budget show. I'd say about the lines of Dr. Who.

Now then, as for BSG.... *sighs* Okay, story arc is a good concept, but I'm getting rather tired of Starbuck whining, playing the woman who wants it all, in her crotch, make it vibrate, and NOW kplzthnks... I'm tired of watching Apollo be this wishy washy dick thinking idiot who doesn't realize what a good thing he has.. I really want to see another boxing ep where Adama gets in the ring and beats enough sense into Lee that he doesn't loose his marriage. I want Sharon to kick Roslin's ass for what she did. I'm talking this show needs Springer.. And chairs.. And get it out of their system.. Then they can go about leaving the angst to the Cylons..

However, I'm learning one good moral from BSG.. Man should not try to create life without first ridding himself of The Dramaz, their kids and creations will inherit it.
