Favorit Current Fantasy Shows

Since we have a favorite current Sci-Fi shows, I thought it might be fun to do one for fantasy shows too. Although I'm not going to limit it to just five, I do want to keep it to shows that are currently airing or will be airing a new season later this year.
My picks in no particular order:
Lost Girl
The Originals
Being Human (US)
Sleepy Hollow
The Vampire Diaries
Game of Thrones
Warehouse 13
Grimm
Supernatural

Haven't decided yet:
Dracula

Kind of, maybe fantasy:
Reign ( it does have a prophecy and what might be a ghost)
Potential Future additions:
Bitten
Penny Dreadful

I stopped watching Dracula after the Pilot. I may go back though.

ETA: I guess this is fantasy but I was trying to watch Ravenswood but stopped after the Pilot.

Re: Favorit Current Fantasy Shows

Game of Thrones, of course. I always thought of Doctor Who as rather fantastical so that'd be on the list, but I know some will disagree and call it sci-fi. Other than those two I can't think of anything.

Re: Favorit Current Fantasy Shows

Legend of Korra
Once Upon A Time
(haven't watched the spinoff yet, waiting until Season is done, and then will watch all at once in marathon)
Doctor Who, if you consider it Fantasy
Warehouse 13
The Walking Dead
Arrow
, was added to the SciFi thread, and I really don't think there's anything Genre about Arrow (At least not S1, will watch S2 in marathon when it's done), but, typically, Super Hero shows, go into Fantasy

Gave up on Vampire Diaries a Season or two back and Grimm only watched 2 or 3 episodes. Haven't seen any of the other shows mentioned so far.

Re: Favorit Current Fantasy Shows

Grimm
The Walking Dead
Once Upon a Time (need to catch up with Wonderland)
The Legend of Korra
American Horror Story: Coven
Supernatural (though I've fallen quite behind)

Need to catch up with Sleepy Hollow, though I liked the first few episodes I saw. Doctor Who and Arrow probably go in the SciFi thread, but I'll put them here too.

Lost Girl, I guess, since it's the only one I'm watching...

Game of Thrones is the only one I'm up to date on.

I've enjoyed watching Supernatural (seen the first four seasons), but it's wildly inconsistent.

I'm more of a sf guy than a fantasy guy (let the argument that they're the same genre commence!).

I've never really agreed with that either. Sure they are tend to take place in alternate world's and tend to deal with similar themes, but I think the way different enough for them to be too separate genres.
I used to think of my self as a sci-fi guy too, but over the last couple years I've started to lean more towards fantasy.
