Hands down my #1 spot for U.S. TV series goes to SUPERNATURAL as since 2005 I’ve been watching the Winchester brothers Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles)follow their father’s footsteps as “hunters” fighting an assortment of evil supernatural beings from vampires, demons, pagan gods and even angles. As an older brother and yes i did some ghost hunting before myself too therefore i can some what relate to the brothers, so join me with the brothers in their supernatural adventure. Seriously go watch it! (whistles – “Carry On Wayward Son” ~Kansas)
#2 goes to Vampire Diaries into its 4th season based on book series of the same name written by L. J. Smith The story takes place in a fictional small town, Mystic Falls, Virginia which is haunted by supernatural beings. Unfold the love triangle between the protagonist Elena Gilbert (Nina Dobrev) and vampire-brothers Stefan Salvatore (Paul Wesley) and Damon Salvatore (Ian Somerhalder)
In my 2 cents the babe and hunk factor of this series is over the charts and this is so much a better watch then those crapying, boring, “shiny” vampires” that i fell asleep watching 30 min in. Theres history, romance, babes(yes i gotta mention this again), hunks, twist and turns of the plots that always kept me anticipating for the next episode.
White Collar sits as my new 3rd place. Unravel white collared crimes mysteries with Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer), a con man, forger and thief, whom was captured the FBI, Special Agent Peter Burke(Tim DeKay). But under a work-release program Caffrey helps Burke in FBI investigation to apprehend several white collar criminals,which begins an unconventional but successful partnership. I really enjoy how Caffery still finds ways and means to bend the law while he serves as a Consultant for the FBI and also Caffery’s partner in crime Mozzie (Willie Garson) is not to be missed.
Arrow, it is based on the fictional character Green Arrow, a costumed crime-fighter who appears in comic books published by DC Comics. Share the dual life, romance and action of billionaire playboy Oliver Queen (Stephen Amell), who, after five years of being stranded on an uncharted island, returns home to fight crime and corruption as a secret vigilante whom is skilled in archery. I found this quite an interesting watch reminds me of batman though. Its still new to me, will carry on watching for the sake of Thea Quees (Willa Holland) Oliver’s sister
Lastly 666 Park Avenue, the new addition in 2012 was placed #3 in my charts but due to the unflattering ratings and general disinterest ABC has announced that its 13th episode will be its final. Sadly as i was really enjoying the series which revolves in a building, The Drake located at 999 park avenue, Manhattan, New York and yes this yet another supernatural drama series. I got to follow a couple Jane Van Veen (Rachael Taylor), the new co-manager of the building and Henry Martin (Dave Annable) who learns that the Manhattan apartment building that they just moved into, including its upscale tenants might be possessed by a mysterious demonic force manipulated by Gavin Doran (Terry O’Quinn), the building’s owner. Loosely based upon the novel of the same name by Gabriella Pierce, this series is some what like a deal with the devil with a slight twist.
