It's no surprise that there has been a significant rise in popularity in shows that center around supernatural beings. Vampires, zombies, werewolves are the latest craze and the affinity towards these shows just don't seem to end! Why do you think this genre has gained so much momentum in recent years and what do you think is the appeal of zombies or vampires? From Vampire Diaries to The Walking Dead, the number of shows on the air with notable viewer ratings leads one to wonder: what is it about non-existent creatures that so successfully draws in the attention of us humans? Personally, the appeal of vampires has always been apparent to me. Vampire shows, unlike shows based on zombies, have passionate and rich characters that are generally developed from a historical context. The concept of lust and desire is emphasized in vampires and makes for an interesting dynamic when paired with human counterparts.
