Supernatural television?

Postby Dunnyman » Tue Aug 18, 2009 7:35 pm

Having recently enjoyed both Wonderfalls and Pushing Daisies, I got to wondering what OTHER shows are there with a supernatural twist? I'm not talking horror supernatural like, um, Supernatural, or magic based like Bewitched or I Dream Of Jeannie, but shows where pretty much everything is ordinary, with one supernatural quirk, like the two previously mentioned, or Early Edition. Can anyone think of some?

Howsabout Dead Like Me? Or Reaper?

I guess I should probably point about 7 seasons woth of the best TV you'll ever watch as well: Buffy The Vampire Slayer.

Fixed.
Good choices, but Buffy falls more into the horror genre.

Only if it's the original U.K. version.

The supernatural episodes of The X-Files were always awesome.
Hell, pretty much every episode of that show that didn't fall under "the Mythology" was amazing.

Y'know, i'd love to see a collected volume/boxed set of non-mythology/conspiracy episodes.

You might also want to look for a little-known British series called "Shades", about a couple of ghosts stuck on Earth. It makes some interesting adjustments to the usual conventions of such stories. It was run once on WLIW-TV from Long Island, but I haven't seen it since.

And I guess Kolchak would fit into this catagory, too.

Not quite in the vein of Bryan Fuller, but how about Medium and Ghost Whisperer.
