Spooktober – Day 19: Talking About Supernatural Creatures

I watch a lot of supernatural shows for some odd reason. I wouldn’t consider them to be my favorite type of TV show genre, but it’s probably the genre I have watched the most. I seen/am watching the following shows I would consider supernatural related: Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Charmed, Teen Wolf, first few seasons of Supernatural, Sabrina the Teenage Witch, The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, first season of iZombie, The X-Files, Fringe, Stranger Things, Lucifer, first season of Heroes, first season of The Magicians, Dark, The Runaways, Cloak & Dagger, Orphan Black also works I guess. That’s just the shows I have seen or am watching, I also plan on watching the following supernatural shows Wynonna Earp, Dollhouse, and The Leftovers. This was a long winded way of saying I watch a lot of supernatural shows.

In all of these shows we have a variety of different types of supernatural creatures. I thought it would be fun to talk about my opinions on some of the different creatures that appear on some of these shows.

  • Vampires – Okay, because of Buffy and Angel I love vampires. I am also sorta convinced I am one. Okay not really, but I hate sunlight and wouldn’t being a vampire be cool? Aside from everyone you love growing old and dying while you remain the same age…okay maybe not as originally cool as I first thought, but at first it would be.
  • Witches – I have come to the conclusion recently that I love witches too. I did not realize that until I started to do these posts. I would put witches at the top of my list of favorite supernatural beings along with Vampires.
  • Zombies – I’m pretty neutral about zombies. They don’t do anything for me, maybe if I got hooked on a show about zombies not named The Walking Dead I would like them more. But for now, just neutral.
  • Genies – I have always liked genies, because I watched I Dream of Jeannie when I was younger and of course Aladdin. So genies are cool, I wish we would see more of them in media actually.
  • Aliens – Aliens…I don’t know. I don’t have much of an opinion of them, also I haven’t seen the Alien franchise yet. I will get it eventually and hopefully I will have an opinion of aliens by then.
  • Clones – Clones are really cool. I may be projecting my love of Orphan Black onto clones themselves, but I still like them.
  • Werewolves – I don’t really like werewolves for some reason. I liked the show Teen Wolf, but I never actually got into the creature itself.
  • Banshees – I was first made aware of banshees from Teen Wolf and unlike werewolves, I thoroughly liked banshees on the show. They are an unique creature that I would like to see more on supernatural shows.
  • Ghosts – A staple of the supernatural beings, they’re fun and all, but I do think they could use a revamping *wink* *wink*
  • Fairies – All I can think about when it comes to fairies is Tinker Bell oddly. Everybody likes Tinker Bell, so I guess I like fairies as well.
  • Dragons – Since I have never seen Game of Thrones, I don’t have a big opinion on them as others probably do.
  • Angels – Neutral, but I like how they are portrayed on Lucifer a lot.
  • Wendigo – I have a fondness for wendigos, because of the video game Until Dawn and they make a great one off villain for TV shows.
  • Mermaids – Oh, I love mermaids! I like to see them whenever I watch a show they appear on like on Charmed for example.
  • Sirens – Sirens are basically the dangerous mermaids and I like them. I was surprised to see we have only now just getting a show surrounded solely on them.

Have a favorite supernatural being or creature listed above, or maybe one I didn’t mention? Comment about it below.
