2. Henry Fitzroy (from Blood Ties) – Fast becoming one of my favorite new shows. Henry, the 450-year-old vampire and illegitimate son of Henry VIII, is a artist for graphic novels and helps Vicki out with her supernatural cases.
Memorable Quote:
Henry: Where are you going?
Vicki: Husband hunting.
Henry: (indicating himself) Husband material.
Vicki: You’re sweet, but you’re just not a morning person.


3 & 4. Angel & Spike (from Buffy the Vampire Slayer) – Had to include the two most drooled-over vampires on tv. Of course, this Whedon tv adaptation from a movie that bombed ended up being a cult hit.
Memorable Quotes:
Angel: Don’t worry. I’m not here to eat.
Spike: Angel’s as dull as a table lamp, and we have much different coloring.
