Why is she here? Well, 'cuz she loves me of course! *grin* Yeah, that and she's touring for Tangled Threads (see the list of Tangled Threads tour stops here). Ok, before I take up ALL the space here (& leave none for Jennifer), here she is:
Greetings and salutations! I want to say thanks to Drey for having me on the blog today. Thanks, Drey!
drey: like I would EVER not have Jennifer stop in...
I love to read and write fantasy books, but I also enjoy paranormal TV shows too. Seriously. I watch waay too much TV, and fantasy shows have been some of my favorites over the years. So today, I thought I’d share some of the paranormal shows that I’ve loved over the years:
Charmed: Charmed was all about sisterhood and girl power. More than that, it was just fun, like Charlie’s Angels but with magic. I enjoyed watching the Halliwell sisters grow and change over the years – and kick lots of demon butt along the way.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Ah, Buffy. You had to deal with vampires, monsters, and more, along with high school. You didn’t have it easy, but it was entertaining watching your weekly struggles, especially when it came to Spike and how you really felt about him.
Wonder Woman: I remembered loving this show as a kid, and not too long ago, I went back and watched the DVDs. Admittedly, the show hasn’t aged all that well (especially when it comes to the special effects used), but there’s still something magical about the Amazon princess and watching her save the world on a weekly basis.
Xena: Warrior Princess: I loved this show because it was an unabashedly fun and campy send-up of mythology. Plus, Xena was such a great heroine – strong and conflicted at the same time, trying to be a good person as she struggled with her darker nature.
Alias: Okay, okay, so this one is more of a spy show, but there were plenty of fantasy elements, especially the crazy costumes that Sydney Bristow wore every week. But no matter how she was dressed, Sydney always managed to save the day – and look good doing it. LOL.
What about you guys? What are some of your favorite fantasy TV shows and books? Share in the comments.
