    This series is produced by Robert Hewitt Wolfe and based on a series of books by Jim Butcher . It is set in Chicago, in the supernatural crime underworld.

    We get flashbacks of Harry's childhood. His father was a stage magician, and his mother had REAL magic.

    Shown 11 Feb 07

    Night-time, a man is chased through the woods by a monster. Next morning, a naked woman is found - scalped and with her canine teeth removed. The cops call Dresden in to consult with them, but then the FBI take over the case. There are a string of similar cases in nearby States.

    The title of the ep refers to a cure for Lycanthropy. But when the ep ends and the reset button is pushed, somehow Dresden's legal problems are solved too. This is the problem with Spec Fic shows - the police procedural aspects tend to be brushed over. ANd if the mundane stuff is not realistic, suspension of disbelief towards the speculative stuff is a lot more difficult.
