Product Overview

Based on Jim Butcher's best-selling novels, The Dresden Files chronicles the cases of no ordinary detective. Harry Dresden (Paul Blackthorne) is a wizard, the only one listed in the Chicago phone book. He's got a handle on the crimes that can't be solved by anyone else. Paranormal? No problem. Dresden deals in all matters of supernatural threats. If you need a little hocus pocus or some other worldly advice, Dresden's your man.

This three disc collection includes all 12 episodes from The Complete First Season of The Dresden Files!

Editors Note
Note British actor Paul Blackthorne (24) loses his accent to play Chicago detective Harry Dresden in this darkly funny drama. But since this smart series airs on the Sci Fi channel, Dresden is no ordinary P.I. Like another famous Harry, Dresden is a wizard with extraordinary powers. When Chicago's finest aren't able to solve crimes, people turn to Dresden and his supernatural abilities. From the slightly strange to the truly paranormal, Dresden is the man to master the mysteries. THE DRESDEN FILES is based on Jim Butcher's books and also stars Valerie Cruz (NIP/TUCK). This release includes the show's first season.

ReviewSource Variety
Review Mix a grown-up Harry Potter with a few sprinkles of "The X-Files" and abracadabra, you have this diverting Sci Fi Channel series about a modern wizard/detective casting spells in the Windy City. Based on the novels by Jim Butcher, "The Dresden Files" has an intriguing lead in Paul Blackthorne (last seen matching wits with Jack Bauer in "24") and one of those lighter-than-air premises that holds together provided one doesn't think too hard about it...For Sci Fi, "Dresden Files" represents a sort-of procedural, the kind of undemanding hocus-pocus that goes down easy. And if the series (whose producer team includes Nicolas Cage) doesn't generate any grand creative magic, it at least possesses a certain old-fashioned charm likely to play well in this world and maybe even the next one.

Dread Central ...does not shy away from the gore...genuinely frightening moments...
Tim Goodman, San Francisco Chronicle ...a lot like "The X-Files," and not merely by name. There's a tonal similarity...
