Stood up to its name

This pilot is great, felt genuinely like a follow up to the movie. Maybe some of the jokes felt forced sometimes, but it's still a comedy and not the cheap humor kind. The runtime also makes this a very watchable series, and if all the season remains like this, it will be a light and renewable series to watch.

The Darkness Returns...to Lighten our Spirits!

What a pleasant surprise this is!

Long wishing for some revival or sequel to the very funny What We Do In THe Shadows film, we get in in episodic form. Not only does this expand upon this specific premise of how vampires are realistically, but the show capitalized on the unique humor of Waititi and Clements. WIth characters that dress in that out of place ancient look ,and personas that seem like appropriate mishmashes of the vamps from the film, we have what seems like the exact same plot progression from the movie itself, but thats just the day in the life of most vampires with a Renfield like companion/familiar. This is opening up a new chapter in the vamp mythos, and with its quick wit, I gotta say I enjoyed the show so far.

This is the closest thing we will get to the UK version of The Office these days and that is fine with me. Matt Berry returning to TV makes this even more worth checking out.

The jokes and premise get repetitive after awhile, but for any fans of comedy it is definitely worth watching.

I thought the movie What We Do in the Shadows was an absurd comedy horror with the comedy being one note.

My thoughts on this pilot spin off were similar. Nador, Lazslo and Nadja are vampires in Staten Island and so far have failed to conquer America.

They live in a creepy old house decorated with crepe paper and looked after by Guillermo their slave who longs to be a vampire.

Their shortcomings are exposed when Baron Afanas visits from the old country.

The most true to life character is Colin Robinson, the energy vampire. The office bore who drains people of all energy.
