Maybe a Blessing in Disguise

October 8, 2010

So my son and I burned through watching the first season of The Dresden Files on DVD recently and… you know where this is going, right? We went looking eagerly for the second season and there isn’t one. Just like Firefly, cut short in its prime and now preserved in amber for all time, a brief and shining thing.

Maybe it’s a blessing in disguise… you just know they would have screwed it up, jumped the shark, at some point anyway.

(That last link, by the way, is exactly why Wikipedia exists—more than you ever wanted to know about exactly how the phrase “jump the shark” entered the American lexicon…)
