Other Supernatural Shows

I'm just wondering about other shows with Demons, and what their treatment of good demons was? The only other supernatural show I watched was Charmed, so I can only think about how they all treated Cole when Phoebe was in love with him, and I got to say, though they didn't like the idea of the relationship, her sisters treated him better than the scoobies treated Spike, or even Angel.

I don't tend to watch other supernatural shows, but I did see one episode of Supernatural because Amber Benson was guest starring. She played (ironically) a vampire, the leader of a group that didn't feed on humans, and instead drank animal blood. There was actually a conflict between the main guys and another demon hunter over whether the vampires should be killed simply because they're vampires, even though they weren't hurting people. The main characters ended up letting the vampires live, and I remember thinking at the time that it mirrored the conflict on Buffy regarding Spike in particular, but also the general "black and white" sentiment that all demons are bad and must be killed, which was questioned more and more as the series went on.

Writing should feel easy, like a monkey driving a speed boat.

Have anybody seen the show heroes? I think it's a pretty bad ass show.

I love that show! It is a bad ass show and Hiro is just awesome.

Never followed Charmed much (only character I liked was Cole - go figure) but there are 2 major differences in why the sisters treated Cole better than anyone ever treated Spike.  Both were essentially defanged (Spike with chip and Cole w/o powers) but Cole gave up his powers voluntarily (more like Spike seeking the soul) and also he and Phoebe were MARRIED.  It wasn't like Buffy denying that she even liked the guy.

And yeah, Heroes is awesome, even if there isn't a Spike like character.  But I think Ando is a lot like a better Xander - no powers, but very honest and brave.

Big fan of Cole on Charmed. The sisters did treat him well for a bit, unlike the Scoobies. Then when he went all obsessive and cuckoo and Phoebe 'got over' him, it got annoying and boring. Haven't watched it since. Never watched SN. Heroes is ok most of the time. I think they have way too many storylines and characters.

Yes, I LOVE Heroes, even if it seems a rip-off of X-men and stuff. (But then I love X-men, too, so no wonder I love Heroes, huh? hehe) But I ADORE Hiro from the very first moment I saw him! Masi Oka is so CUTE! Did any of you see him when he was on Scrubs? Poor Franklin. And the girl who plays Claire Bennett - Hayden Pannettiere, well I can't find her "hot" like anyone I've followed since they were little bitty tikes, because that's creepy It's like macking on a daughter or kid sister, cause you look at her and remember the uber curly hair and chubby cheeks.

Unfortunately, we had big vampires in the next room, and I didn't think they'd wait while we had hot monkey sex. ~Cerulean Sins :: (Anita to Jean-Claude)“Is there anything your bloodline does that doesn’t involve getting naked?" ~Danse Macabre :: I’m dating three men, living with two more, and having occasional sex with two others.
