  • Gloria Goodale

    These unsettling scenes are tough on the eyes, but happily, star Paul Blackthorne is well worth watching, full time.

    Christian Science Monitor Full Review
  • Marilyn Moss

    Brooding, seductive and smart.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Robert Bianco

    Like Harry, the show has yet to fully master its tricks. There are a few decent jolts, but nothing is truly frightening or even that threatening. And while the show can be amusing, it's never exactly side-splitting.

    USA Today Full Review
  • Maureen Ryan

    If you don’t like hints of Harry Potter mixed in with fairly straightforward procedural elements, this may not be the show for you.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Brian Lowry

    If the series doesn't generate any grand creative magic, it at least possesses a certain old-fashioned charm.

    Variety Full Review
  • Mike Duffy

    Even with Blackthorne's occasionally engaging portrayal of Harry Dresden, this whodunit lacks the wit and imagination that might transform it into something special.

    Detroit Free Press Full Review
  • Gillian Flynn

    An uneven fantasy series that's not eerie enough to be a culty favorite or goofy enough to be a guilty pleasure.

    Entertainment Weekly Full Review
  • David Hinckley

    "Dresden" hasn't put a spell on me at the start - but it's not bad. It's just that on Sundays, opposite such shows as "Desperate Housewives" and "Rome," not bad is not nearly good enough.

    New York Daily News Full Review
  • Alan Sepinwall

    It isn't until the werewolf-themed fourth episode that "Dresden Files" finally gives you a trick worth applauding. Hopefully, there's more of that to come.

    Newark Star-Ledger Full Review
  • Tim Goodman

    "The Dresden Files" is currently mediocre, a series searching for the right tone, seemingly unsure of itself and all the while not quite selling itself to the non sci-fi crowd.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Linda Stasi

    The series has great potential, and frankly I can't tell you why it doesn't ever quite reach it - other than it somehow lacks, er, magic.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Ginia Bellafante

    It has the feeling of pizza with pineapple on it — which is to say, not actually for grown-ups.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Rob Owen

    Dresden's investigations amount to a lot of ho-hum hokum... and his relationships are largely paint-by-number bland.
