There are so many choices on the television landscape, sometimes it's hard to figure out what to watch. If you have a specific genre in mind, it makes it much easier.
We love weird TV and we've chosen some of our favorite shows that proudly wave the weird flag.
Check out our list and let us know your favorites!
American Horror Story
Ryan Murphy has brought us season after season of this bizarre anthology series. From a murder house to a haunted hotel, Murphy delves deep into the weird and horrific. American Horror Story is not for the faint-hearted, so viewer beware! It airs currently on FX and previous seasons can be found on Netflix.
Manfred, a ghost magnet, has arrived in the small town of Midnight, Texas which turns out to be a haven for the weird. It's home to a group of supernatural creatures who must band together, along with some human friends, to battle a horde of demons trying to break through the veil that protects Midnight from the hellish underworld! The show is based on a series of books by Charlaine Harris and airs on NBC.
If you've ever read any of the stories on Creepypasta

The Twilight Zone
