What We Do in the Shadows (TV)

Post by shiki-jitsu »

Marathoned about 8 or 9 episodes of this last night. Really enjoyed it. I remember liking the movie of this well enough, but the TV series is really enjoyable. The characters are great. Matt Berry is fucking hilarious as usual.

Hulu has all of season 1 and it looks like season 2 is coming in 2020. :yay:

Its a mockumentary following vampires who live in Staten Island and their familiars. The original movie is from 2014(?) and was written and starring one of the Flight of the Conchords guys and this other guy I can't remember his name off hand. This show is a different group of vampires but the same idea basically.

A lot of guest appearances in it. One memorable scene being when the 3 main vampires have to go before the Vampire Council and the council consists of a bunch of recent famous vampires.

Okay, I've heard of it. I'll have to check it out. I never saw the movie.

I just started binging this lately and HOLY FUCK is it hilarious. I'm not really a huge fan of sitcoms, but I can see this as being one of my background shows.

A couple of thoughts:

1. Collin Robinson is my fucking favorite. :lol:
2. Fuck Mike. :lol:
3. The Vampire Council scene (as Shiki mentioned) is absolute genius in its execution and cameos.
4. And, the reason why I posted this, the mention of the Zune. :rotfl:

So, so quotable. So, so good.

Fucking amazing show.

I'm thinking I might make one to keep in the trunk of the car though. Might be nice to have hot water if I ever have to watch a Matthews compound for 3-4 days hoping to get the drop on Sergio Frenchi. - Neon Bolan

Still haven't watched it, but it seems to be trending with people who like Zunes. As an iPod fan, I'm thinking this has nothing for me.

It's probably best. I don't think you'd get it.

You're probably right. I find Zunes funny for much different reasons.

The problem Neon has is that he is clearly the Simon the Devious of our group. :shake:

No, I'm more like the Thomas Magnum of a completely different group. I drive around Portland in my Ferrari and Hawaiian shirt solving crimes and banging broads. That's the group I belong to.

Season 3 - Premiering September 2:
This season, the vampires are elevated to a new level of power and will encounter the vampire from which all vampires have descended, a tempting Siren, gargoyles, werewolf kickball, Atlantic City casinos, wellness cults, ex-girlfriends, gyms, and supernatural curiosities galore. Plus, Colin Robinson is turning 100. And Nandor, faced with his own eternal-life crisis, tries to inject his life with more meaning. Will he find love or is he destined to be an immortal bachelor with 37 ex-wives?

You should enjoy a snack of buckeyes or dried strawberries while you watch this.
