This is another TV series for persons who love mystery things. Like The Vampire Diaries, it is recommended that you watch this from the beginning in order for you to understand the plot.

David Boreanez plays the role of the “Angel”. It is a bit similar to Buffy the Vampire Slayer but you just have to watch it and see for yourself.

Beauty and the Beast

Nah, this is not about the Beast and Belle. This series is about a detective named Catherine and a doctor named Vincent. They are both hunted by an organization called Muirfield which is why they try not to catch attention as much as possible. The reason why they are being run after is because of Catherine’s past when her mom got murdered by a beast. It is definitely a series like The Vampire Diaries that you shouldn't miss.
