Recently my computer kicked the proverbial bucket and is now residing in closet heaven never to see the light of day again. Thank goodness I still have Internet access at work. Since it's impossible for me to afford a new computer at this point in my life, I've taken up watching television instead.
I keep catching snips and pieces of a tv show from the 90's called Twin Peaks. I can't decide if it's a comedy, murder mystery, or just plain supernatural. Maybe it's all of the above. I've just about convinced myself to buy the first seaon on DVD
just to see what it's all about. I have a feeling I'm going to like it, but then again, who knows.
While surfing an endless sky of tv channels, I came across CHILLER. It has loads of supernatural series and movies, and I'm sort of bummed because I want to write a series of novels involving a ghost hunter, demon hunter, or supernatural hunter. I now see the market is flooded with this stuff, and now I have to come up with a fresh angle, or abandon the idea all together. I guess the dude in
Ecclesiastes was right:
"The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun." (1:9 King James).
In any case, below are my favorite among the demon/ghost/supernatural hunters. Not all of them are on CHILLER:
The X-Files - Mulder and Scully investigate the strange and unusual.
Supernatural - Two brothers on a quest to rid the world of things that don't belong here.
Ghost Whisperer - Melinda Gordan helps earth-bound ghosts to cross over.
Moonlight - A vampire plays detective and protects humans
Ghost Hunters - Jason and Grant and team investigate haunted places.
Night Stalker - A reporter hunts demons
The Dresden Files - A wizard solves murder mysteries involving the paranormal
Shows like these tend to get very bad reviews, and I can't help but wonder if the bad reviews are coming from people who have no interest in the paranormal. In that case, why do they bother to watch and then tell everyone how much they hate it? hmmmm ....
