According to my mom, she is to blame for my love of vampires because she would let me watch Dark Shadows with her when I was just a baby. Whether it’s her fault or not, I’ve loved vampires for as long as I can remember and much of that love comes back again to TV vampires. Halloween seemed like a perfect time to take a look at some of my favorites, and some of the most popular, TV vampires.

After an uneven season 4 that left a lot people sort of cold on True Blood, season 5 returns Sunday June 10 with us picking up where we left off last year. I feel that enough time has passed to make me forget some of the worst parts of season 4 and get excited for some of the prospects of season 5.
