It's that time of year. Ghosts, ghouls and goblins are running amok. Mummies, werewolves and vampires are the talk of the town. Everyone is getting in on the Halloween action and the Paley Center is no exception. They're posing the enormous question: Who is the greatest TV vampire of them all? Well, you know who's got my vote.
Arthur Smith asks, "Suddenly, it seems, audiences want blood. Why now? Is it the parlous state of the world, economic anxieties, the end result of a morbidly sex-and-youth obsessed popular culture?" Well the easy answer is, vampires are awesome. But obviously it's not just now, humans have had an obsession with vampires for centuries. Of course the Twilight madness raging heavily for the last year has helped fling them into the spotlight once again. Luckily for us this is a TV vampires only poll. Edward Cullen need not apply.
Here are your nominees:
The Count (ah! ah! ah!)
Mick St. John
You have until November 2 to vote. As of right now my beloved William the Bloody is holding strong in the top spot with 29.32%. Eric is a close second with 23.39%. They also say write-in votes are welcome and a lot of commenters have already noticed one glaring omission - Nick Knight from Forever Knight. I'd also add Mitchell from Being Human to the list but I'm still behind Spike all the way. Or in front of him. Or under him...
