SFX's top 50 vampires

SFX's top 50 vampires

At first I thought this was poll Catmoon posted about here: viewtopic.php?f=17&t=6491

Then I thought maybe it was an old poll, as I was sure I hadn't seen it before. But no - it's new. I only saw it because James Marsters posted it on his Facebook page (Spike made number one).

Mick was number 4 and Josef number 17. :hyper2: :hyper2: Which considering it's an "all-time" poll is pretty damn good (and I particularly liked the Cullen snark).

I do recall this list from last year... cool to see it, "for the first time on the internet."
And I also appreciate the Cullen snark. How could one resist? I know I never can... :teeth:

But I especially loved this line about Mick: It's like all the things that make vampires so sexy have been distilled into one character.
Oh so true. :melts: :melts: :melts:

Nice write-ups for both our vamps...and, "block voting"? MOONLIGHT fans?

**blinks innocently** whoever heard of such a thing?

Amen, grace. Couldn't have put it better.

Sadly, Sophia didn't make the list for her brief stint as the vampire Lucy in Dracula. I was glad to see two of my older favorites (Frank Langella and Louis Jordan) make the list.

Like block voting isn't what got Spike in first place... :roll:
Cos otherwise, Dracula would win a vamp poll, huh??

Very cool list! I thought it was funny how many times Dracula kept popping up. :ysmile:

There was block voting???

Hey, I didn't vote! Oh. (I live in the States. I guess this was a U.K. thing?)

It was online voting so country of origin wouldn't have been an issue (and pretty much no-one in the UK has heard of Moonlight...).

How much do I love seeing Josef at number 17? :hyper2: (Rhetorical question.)

This especially was wonderful ...

The result was a louche, witty, energetic supporting character who often threatened to outshine the show’s star, Mick, whom he readily “re-turns” into a vampire at one point after Mick has a brief relapse into humanity. Shame the show was cancelled as a Josef spin-off series could have been great.

Considering he had less than 3 hours total screen time over the course of the series, that's quite an accomplishment. :twothumbs:

Oh this is the excellent poll from the SFX special edition Vampire edition (I got my copy at last year's BBM). :twothumbs:

I love having this issue in print with Mick at number 4. :cheer:

Thank you so much for the reminder, coco - I thought I was going mad. I knew this looked familiar - but I also knew I hadn't voted in anything recently. Now it all makes perfect sense. :smooch: :hearts:

This thread was a happy reminder for me too. :biggrin: I went in search of the mag and reading the poll and the excellent Moonlight episode guide with Alex comments again. :happysigh:
