Supernatural Summer TV

Summer is officially here and so are the quirky, offbeat, and often high-risk shows that don't normally air during the lucrative/crucial Fall season. Supernatural or supernatural-adjacent shows continue to be popular, and at this rate many more will likely jump on the bandwagon. (How soon before we'll see CSI: Purgatory?)
