Top 6 Supernatural and Fantasy Television shows V.3

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 last 3 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.

3. Lost:
This show brought fantasy into the mainstream, even those who didn't set out to watch a fantasy show were eased in with "Lost". Before we all realized it, we were in the middle of one of the most elaborate fantastical mythologies ever seen on television. It was so complex that a room full of people could watch it and everyone would get something different from it. Whether you loved it or hated it, there's no denying that "Lost" will be a show that people will still be discussing and hypothesizing about for many years to come.

2. Supern
atural: Demons, ghosts, vampires, shapeshifters, and angels, this show is a cornucopia of the paranormal. Two cool, good-looking brothers driving around in a classic car with a 70s rock soundtrack, battling demons and supernatural beings with some majorly amazing artillery make this show totally awesome. The witty banter and sarcastic dialogue offer a welcome relief from the serious struggle of good vs evil. This is the only show I've seen that can be deadly serious in one episode and totally make fun of it's self in the next and be able to pull it off without being campy or cheesy.

1. The Vampire Diaries:
One of the few times the live-action version is better than the book and to say it's better is a serious understatement
. Vampire Diaries is a show for anyone who loves vampires, but wants less graphic sex and violence than True Blood, but doesn't want Twilight-esque teen romance. It's a vampire show for those of us who want ongoing compelling story lines, shocking twists, and a bit of romance and betrayal.

Here's the list of shows we chose from:

boo vampire diaries! it's like the whiny, my-life-is-so-hard emo-ness of Dawson's Creek but with Vampires! really? that's #1? i'm terribly upset by this.

It was a tie between Vampire Diaries and Supernatural. BUT TrueBlood would have been higher had there not been so many people who hated it.

Braine said...

LOL I agree with Anna. The Winchester brothers should've topped the list hands down. Well I guess if I'm a legitimate part of the YA crown Vampire Diaries would be my number 1 too but since I'm not, my chips are on Dean and Sam.

Braine- Everyone got 3 votes, their 1st-3rd place choices. And Vampire Diaries got one more "1st place" vote than Supernatural, BUT it could have easily gone the other way. Supernatural, overall is just as popular with our group.

Personally, I like Supernatural better in general, just not lately...

I love the Vampire Diaries--so good! Addicted to SUPERNATURAL and True Blood. And can't wait to watch the new CW's series: "The Secret Circle"
