1: Dracula (Squee!)
2: Lestat (Pretty much amazing)
3: Jesse (I just guessed here...)
4: Spike (Can't go wrong here, but Spike owns my heart)
5: Angel (He's kind of a whiny brat, but he kicks ass.)
6: Dean Winchester (obviously)

This is such a great idea! You have just become someone for me to watch regularly!

Can't wait for the release!

Let's see:

1. Dracula as done by Oldman rocked!

2. Lestat, by I actually preferred Cruise to Townsend.

3. Bill Compton

4. Spike, by I loved David.

5. Angel, but I'm told the new Barnabas will be something to behold.

6. Dean Winchester, even for a single episode. :)

Happy T13,

Travis Cody said...

I love the idea of a vampire smack down.

1. Dracula - Gary Oldman wins in almost any match up.

2. Lestat - I base this vote on the books. Eric's arrogance is less attractive than Lestat's.

3. Bill - This is purely a vote for the vampire I know over the one I haven't heard of.

4. David - This is a close one.

5. Barnabas - Another tough call because I like Angel. But I must go with the vintage Barnabas.

6. Jerry - I'm not familiar with either vampire, so I'll go with the scary I've seen in Fright Night trailers.

Pat C. said...

1. Dracula, the granddaddy of them all
2. Lestat, even when played by Tom Cruise
3. Bill
4. Spike. Do you even need to ask why?
5. Tough call, but I'll have to go with Barnabas. I'm old school.
6. Dean. This is kind of a cheat because I cast Jensen as a vampire in one of my books before the episode ever aired. It's probably as close as I'll ever get to seeing my characters on TV

Natalie J. Damschroder said...

Fun! Though some of these I'm not familiar enough to vote fairly. I'll do it anyway. :)

1. Dracula
2. Eric Northman
3. Jesse Hooker
4. Spike
5. Angel
6. Dean
