I'm just glad they do show the weird and unusual. I don't know what I'd do if all there was to watch was doctor/hospital, lawyer, and soap type dramas on at night...I wouldn't watch.

I love my supernatural and out of this world shows...Supernatural especially. Haven is a good show. Fringe is good, Nine Lives of Chloe King is looking pretty good for now, don't care much for Vampire Dairies but we need a good vampire show on. I wish we had something like Buffy back on tv.
