Supernatural and The Vampire Diaries shifted their focus from horror to romance, causing disappointment for some fans. The Vampire Diaries started this trend in season 2 and continued it until the show ended after eight seasons. Similarly, Supernatural lost its unique horror vibe after season 5 and developed a taste for a bigger apocalypse that escalated with each season. The shows also suffered from relationships getting in the way of action, such as the "will they, won't they" dynamic of Destiel in Supernatural. Despite these flaws, both shows are still beloved by fans.
