I dunno, I can't hate on the TV series much. It's an amalgamation of the earlier, less serious books and the normal SyFy channel cheesiness. There are moments that get close to the books, but not quite.
I have to say I thought the actors all did a good job, including Bob (and there's good reason he's a person not a skull, you can find the terrible CGI test footage online.) I'm not sure they could ever make Dresden Files a good movie series, because there's so much going on plot-wise. HBO could make a kick ass miniseries, though.
