Topic: The Dresden Files
I just started watching this series and we're only on the second episode. Worth the watch.
Well up there with Monk or House, what have you.
It's on Scifi and the next ep is in two weeks. They'll probably have rerun in between for those just tuning in.
Based upon the novels by Tim Butcher(I think that's it).
I'm not excellent on descriptions but it's about the only Wizard working in the greater Chicago area. Yes, an actual wizard with magic powers and all. Don't sell it short just by that, the series manages a feel that doesn't look cheesey or obnoxious.
Unfortunately it's another detective show, which are kind of getting old. Even then I'm hooked. My parents, two of my friends are as well.
The first episode details Dresden's past as a little boy while also going over him meeting a boy quite like himself at a young age terrified that monsters are going to kill hs mother and him.
