Fairytale TV'

I hadn't thought that True Blood opened the door for the wave of Fairy Tale TV shows ( i love Grimm!)

In the past couple of years there has been an increase of supernatural and mystical themes in television, and the viewers (including myself) are eating it up at an astronomical rate. Vampires, witches, werewolves, and fairytale characters alike are all popping up on our television screens, much to our excitement.
So why do we love these other worlds so much? Isn't it obvious, our lives are so busy and stressful that we need a true escape. All TV is an escape from reality, but when we open our minds and our homes to these mystical beings we are truly in a different place. For example, when you tune into The CW's hit, The Vampire Diaries, you are whisked away to a world where vampires and humans are falling in love. Who hasn't had a daydream of a supernatural love? Especially if said vampire looks like Damon (Ian Somerhalder). We watch Elena struggle with the battle between her love for Stefan and her budding love for Damon. Who does she choose? Either way she hurts someone she loves, and breaks viewers hearts.

Dallas, I am loving Grimm as well. Folks can catch up by watching on demand if they have it.
