We Ranked All The Vampire Shows Nigerians Watch

October 28, 2020

I never liked Vampire movies and series. They were always very cringy to me because why are the characters so white? And why do people drink blood? And why is the government not doing anything about it? So, so many questions.

But I know that a lot of people watch them, so I’ve decided to rank them after watching some parts of some of them, and a lot of discussion with Vampire movie lovers that are somehow my friends.

6. True Blood

People say this show is addictive, but that’s all they have to say about it. Not “It’s great”, or “I love it”. Just “It’s addictive.” Does anybody prefer True Blood to any other Vampire show?

5. Van Helsing

If you have some time to kill and you’re not too keen on great writing, watch Van Helsing. It’s…just there. But it’s not bad.

4. Legacies

Even though it has just two seasons, a lot of people are already talking about Legacies. I’m hoping that they don’t overstretch it and rush the ending. Seeing as it was produced by Julie Plec, the same woman who created Vampire Diaries and The Originals, it’s a possibility.

3. Twilight

If you’re a teenager who just fell in love for the first time and likes to dream, Twilight feels like the perfect show for you. Although it’s not a “series’, it’s a bunch of really good vampire movies. Some might think they stretched it too long though.

2. Vampire Diaries

People that watched this show might feel a bit cheated that they didn’t get a ninth season. One thing that stands out for many watchers though, is the relationship between Damon and Stefan. Best. Brothers. Ever.

1. The Originals

You can’t have a conversation with someone who watches The Originals without them mentioning how handsome and perfect Klaus is. Other characters in this show must be jealous. But nonetheless, it’s a great spin-off from The Vampire Diaries and it deserves its spot at number one.
