Ask any two people what the best paranormal shows are on television, and you’ll likely get two different answers. Some will call out Outlander or Game of Thrones. These tales have captivated audiences, then there are The Walking Dead fans. They go crazy. Just tune into social media any night one of these programs has a new episode, the love and passion for these characters is intoxicating.
Whenever a new television pilots are ordered, I scour for a mention of a new paranormal or superhero show. Don’t ask me about what is the best, because for me it’s all about the stories, and the characters.
So hold out your bag, and prepare for some delicious treats courtesy of these spooky, sexy, and funny shows!
Season 13, and we’re still rocking it out with the Winchester brothers—they’ve been to heaven, to hell, to other worlds, and more and no matter what happens, these wayward sons rock.
Supernatural/Dean Winchester/Eye of the Tiger
What happens when the devil takes a vacation? You get a brilliant show with a wild cast of characters and (anti)hero who has absolutely no filter…and have I mentioned the man can play a piano?
Beauty and the Beast
From the moment this show premiered, I couldn’t get enough. Catherine and Vincent’s magical love swept me away and I wanted to go Down Below.
Dude, this show was TOO short-lived. I adored everything about the comic back in the day, and I loved his snark. The only saving grace. We get to see Matt Ryan on some of the other DC shows.
The Vampire Diaries
I was a devoted fan for about four years. I always saw the ending of season 4 as the perfect HEA for me. Week after week, Damon’s antics kept me coming back…
Archie Comics (goofy) meets gothic noir, and what is the result? A show I cannot get enough of, and now that we’re going to get Sabrina the Teenage Witch involved. Yes please, may I have s’more?
I might be the only person in the fandom that prefers Elijah to Klaus, but I’m an Elijah girl, and have been since his first appearance on the aforementioned The Vampire Diaries. All that sexy, repressed power? Hmm. Yeah.
Of course superheroes make my list. It’s zany, it’s fun, and the powers verge on the magical. Throw in some time travel, alternate reality hopping, and a heart breaking back story? Sign. Me. Up.
Ladies and gentlemen—the salmon ladder. ‘Nuff said (also Constantine guest starred on this show. What, a girl can be persuaded!)
The television series about the cheerleader with a bite of her own. Then throw in the Scoobies, Giles, and Spike? These episodes don’t get old.
For me? This list is so beautiful…
