LBD = Little Black Dress. You know what that is, right? That one outfit that is sort of one-size-fits-all-occasions that every smart woman has hanging in her closet. Men used to be lucky when it came to fashions–a black suit, a sport coat, slacks, and a shirt could take them through most events. Well, and jeans for the truly casual moment.
For a long time, publishing said vampires were dead. Go ahead and laugh. There’s a pun in there. But someone forgot to tell TV. And now there’s been a surge in supernatural shows, especially shows about wolves or with a wolf/wolves as main characters. In fact, on the non-“Big Three” networks, there’s been a surge of supernaturally-themed shows.
As an author of such fare, I’m happy. As a reader of the genre, I’m happier still, even though it clogs up my DVR. Both of them. I have one in the bedroom and one in my office. Works great when there’s a conflict as I can only record two shows in the same timeframe. Monday is now totally crowded! And Tuesday isn’t much better. Anyway, we’re talking TV today–supernaturally speaking. Here’s the list of new and old favorites I’ve tagged to watch:
Sleepy Hollow (though the two-hour finale aired last night)
Almost Human (love the human/android cop buddy basis)
Intelligence (okay, more SciFi than supernatural but any guy with a computer chip in his head who can access the internet is pretty spooky in my book 😉 )
Lost Girl (I love this gritty show about Fae)
Haven (based on a Stephen King short story, and a combination of supernatural/scifi)
Bitten (based on the Kelley Armstrong books that I haven’t read. Yet. This series just started. The second episode airs Friday.)
The Originals (a spin-off of The Vampire Diaries) about vampires and werewolves in New Orleans.
Agents of SHIELD
I keep thinking there are others out there I watch but can’t remember. There are other supernatural shows I don’t watch. The aforementioned Vampire Diaries, Arrow (though I might should look into that one again), Beauty and the Beast, Supernatural, Being Human, Orphan Black, Dracula (didn’t make it through the first episode), Grimm (watched the 1st two seasons then lost interest), True Blood (not even Joe Manganiello could keep me around after the first couple of seasons), and a few more. I found a list HERE.
So I want to know what your favorite supernatural series is, and what book/series would you like to see made into a TV series?
