Top 6 Supernatural and Fantasy Television shows, V.1

While we all love reading, occasionally we have to give our eyes and minds a break and watch some television! What paranormal shows are the members of the Supernatural Book Club watching? We did a recent poll to find out.
Here are the first 2 in our top 6 supernatural and fantasy television shows*, as voted on by the Supernatural Book Club.

*Disclaimer: This list does not include strictly sci/fi shows, so you won't find shows like "Star Trek" or "The X-Files" here, we're talking strictly supernatural and fantasy shows.

6. Being Human: A vampire, a werewolf, and a ghost sharing a house, trying desperately to fit into a human society that no longer accepts them, a community they're no longer a part of, struggling to remember what it's like to be human. It's a premise so good they remade it in America, but it's the original British version that best captures the humanity behind the "monsters". It asks the questions, "What would it really be like to be a vampire? How would you live your life?".

5. Pushing Daisies: Ned has the unique ability to bring the dead back to life with a single touch, but if he touches that person again, they die forever. Now Ned must resist the desire to touch his childhood love, whom he's revived after her death and doesn't want to lose again. When he's not pining over his love, Ned is helping solve murders and settle will disputes, by simply asking the recently deceased. Charming, whimsical and romantic, this show was a cheery and sunny take on death, and a unique viewing experience.
