Not sure what they are up too... the epsiode was the edited down version on Storm Front. It was made as a pilot/tv movie and was about 2 hours long, however they re-shot some of it and cut it down to an hour.
It was a bit messy... the layout of Harry's place was more like the book - the sub basement lab was present. It had elements of Storm Front, but didn't follow the story at all.
I don't know why they didn't just split it into 2 episodes. Some of it just made no sense and because it was due to be the pilot, it feels like a pilot - they introduce characters and ideas, that were outside of the flow of the show.
It's typical of SciFi channel when they don't think they will pick it up for another season.
Thanks for that.
I knew that something had to be up with it. It just seemed extremely disjointed and out of place compared to the rest of the series. Hopefully it'll be restored to it's original run time on an eventually DVD set. I loved the idea of the exploding hearts but it seemed to try to pack in way too much into only an hour.
I really need to pick up some of the Dresden books.
