Are there any vampire books/TV shows that are for men?
@fojtikbt: There is a Brazilian book series called "The Seven" written by André Vianco. Its about seven Portuguese super powered vampires that awaken from their slumber and start to wreck the entire world, and they must be stopped by the archaeologist who released them. Its really cool, the fight scenes are crazy but it delves into purple prose a lot more than it should. There is no romance like Twilight, but there is a very strong sexual tension between a Army General and a female vampire he imprisoned, its not handled exactly like Twilight. The bad guys are really cool; the vampire leader Inverno is able to control ice and cold and there is a vampire that turns into werewolf called Lobo. There is even a total war climax at the end when the Brazilian army charges against a vampire army.
Totally recommend it =D
I always felt that both Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel were just as accessible to men as they were women. Especially from Mid-Season 2 till the end of Buffy. If you can put up with some bad special effects and cheese during the first two seasons, you'll love it. Personally, they're my favorite shows (and even as a girl I was kinda hesitant about it because of the namesake alone, but was truly blown away by the writing and acting.)
And Being Human, both versions, are awesome shows.
UK version is awesome. I can't vouch for the american one because I haven't seen it but Being Human and Moonlight are my favorite vampire related shows @fojtikbt: you should definetelly check them out
@Jorgevy: The American one is probably my favorite show when it airs. You have to sit through the first few episodes but it gets really good by the end of season 1 and season 2 was kickass. And you have to expect something different from the UK, it isn't a remake, it's its own version.
And I forgot about Moonlight, that show was awesome.
@god_spawn: yeah it was, too bad it was canned, but atleast the main actor got famous and is now on H5-0. I don't usually hear good things about US adaptations of UK shows but I just might check out Being Human US. I tried Inbetweener US after watching the UK version and it wasn't bad at all so maybe I'll be surprised again
I'm planning on looking for back issues of American Vampire the next time I make it to the comic book store. I'm also thinking about checking out I, Vampire. Buffy looks like it could be good, so I'll start watching that. I'm also excited to start watching the U.S. version of Being Human because I'm a big fan of Sam Witwer.
