I like this show. The main character is witty and cool. Much better than your average CSI type of show.

Dollhouse is an excellent show with plenty of action and drama. I loved it. And it all get even better with the hot actor Eliza Dushku in the main role.

Dollhouse is another Joss Whedon show. Echo is kind of like Buffy, only a little older. And the show is more science fiction instead of fantasy and not so much teen drama.

I remember watching this when I was younger. It is a good family friendly show. It is interesting to see of Clark Kent was before he takes on is responsibilities as superman.
Is Smallville good?
Buffy vampires and supernatural stuff, not superheroes. But the setting is very familiar. Small town school setting and episodic structure.
Why is Smallville recommended?
Angel is Buffy's first boyfriend, and he is a vampire. He is to walk the earth with a soul, which destines him to a torturous life. He moved to L.A. after their breakup and sets up shop as a kind of supernatural private investigator.
I personally liked Angle better then Buffy the vampire slayer. The only thing that is better with Buffy is Buffy.

Angel is a spin-off from Buffy where many of the characters are the same. If you like Buffy then you have to watch this show.
Why is Angel recommended?

I remember liking Vampire Diaries at on point, but then I grew tired of the show. It is a popular show, so you should probably give it a try.

The Vampire Diaries is about vampires and aimed toward teens. It does not have the same monster-hunting focus as Buffy has.
Why is The Vampire Diaries recommended?

This is a superb show. I can't fathom why it got canceled after only one season. I want a new show like this.

The creators have earlier made shows like Buffy and Angle. Grimm has some high standards to live up to, and it does so remarkably well. This Show is a kind of modern take on the Grimm`s fairytales and highly recommended to watch by people that like these kinds of shows.
Is Grimm good?
Grimm also has a supernatural hunter that keeps the supernatural world from abusing humans.

Astronaut John Crichton is on an experimental space mission to test a new spacecraft slingshoting around the globe. He is accidentally is accidentally sucked into a wormhole and emerged into the midst of an intergalactic conflict far out in the universe. He joins the crew on Moya ( a living sentient bio-mechanical space ship ) who picked him up after his unfortunate wormhole ride. He has to get to grips with living among alien creatures wielding deadly technology and being hunted by the Peacekeepers, a merciless military race.
This is a cool sciences fiction show, but not the best. I could for some reason not stomach the actor playing John Crichton. I had problems with him when he was on SG-1 also. This is probably just me, and many will likely disagree with me on this. If you have no problems with him, then this show might be pretty good, absolutely worth watching.
Is Farscape good?
Not sure why, but they feel somewhat similar even if they are totally different.
Why is Farscape recommended?
Veronica Mars is a teenage crime solver with a Private Investigator for a dad. She helps out friend and schoolmates solving small and big problems, for a small fee of course, unless you qualify for a friends and family discount. While she works on these small episodic cases she also works on longer seasonal problems.
This is an absolute fantastic TV show. I have watched it multiple times. The only bad thing that really bugs me is the ending. It`s a shitty cliffhanger ending. You can drop the last season, or at last drop the last half.
Is Veronica Mars good?
Veronica Mars is kind of like Buffy without the supernatural aspect.
Why is Veronica Mars recommended?
Books like Buffy: the Vampire Slayer

Anita is approached by Jean Claude, the second strongest vampire in the city to help figur out who is killing vampires. Anita agrees to help out after a bit of vampiric arm-twisting.
This is the start of an excellent vampire series. Well, the beginning of it is excellent. I stooped reading around book 10, it had started to go downhill a little before that. But the first books are absolutely worth reading.
Is Guilty Pleasures good?
Anita Blake Vampire hunter starts out very similar, but it kind of gradualy changes after a few books.
Why is Guilty Pleasures recommended?
Harry Dresden, a Chicago bound professional wizard, and the only one with an ad in the yellow pages. Business is sadly dreadful, so he jumps on it when the local police bring him in as a consultant on a strange double murder.

Dresden is a male lead character, but the jokes and references have many similarities.
Why is Storm Front recommended?
Zoey is a 16-year-old girl who is marked. Those who are marked are sent to the House of Night. It`s a school where marked teenagers are sent to undergo the change to become a vampire.
House of Night is an ok paranormal teen series. Nothing special, but worth a read if you are into books like this.

Blood+ is a good anime that any anime fan should watch. People new to animes can also try this one out. The battles have a reason and are not added on and drawn out like most other shounen anime. The characters are in focus and how they change and adapt to events happening around and to them.
