I was watching Dresden Files the other night (I'm still finishing the season on Tivo) and something occurred to me. Isn't the character of Connie Murphy pretty much a clone of Dana Scully? I mean, I'm on the second to the last episode of the season and Murphy still seems pretty determined not to believe in much of anything she sees with her own eyes. It's kind of like déjà vu. The only thing I wonder is how long are we going to have to believe that her character doesn't buy into any of the whole magic business? X-Files was on for what? 9 years? And Scully played the skeptic almost the whole time. I understand the need for a skeptic as a plot device since it allows the main character the opportunity to explain what exactly is going on for the tv audience. But it does make the character who has been put in the role of the eternal skeptic look like an idiot sometimes, doesn't it? Maybe it's just me.
