Watchseries; This is the best show on tv at the moment, from the wonderfully crafted writing to the perfectly timed acting from a fantastic cast! First show in a while to make me audibly laugh.

What We Do in the Shadows watchseries. This show is so funny and refreshing. In the midst of all the new vampire, witches, magic shows that are on your tv now, this show is so well crafted. The writing, directing and special effects are so much fun to watch.
A nice light comedy of dark humor. If you like Dracula: Dead and Loving It and Young Frankenstein, or just a fan of laughing I highly recommend this.
What We Do in the Shadows follows a small group of vampires who live together on Staten Island and the adventures they wind up in.
The movie, which follows a different group in Wellington, New Zealand, is excellent and I highly recommend it if you haven't seen it before. If you love the movie, you will love the show! What makes the show better than the movie comes down to the episodic nature of television. The episodic format means plot-lines can begin and end more quickly than the movie, characters can be developed more and they can be thrown into a wider variety of crazy situations. The movie had great world-building but could only do so much with an 85 minute runtime, and the show furthers that simply from having more time.
The show would not work if Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement, who wrote/directed/acted in the movie, were not onboard. They ensured that the tone, production design, shooting style, and humor were all on par with the film. Thank goodness season 2 is on the way!
This show grows on you if you enjoy Halloween and vampires and office comedy and mockumentary style shots. Keep em coming!
The original movie was hysterical from beginning to end and the same folks who wrote and starred in that one, wrote and directed this series. The entire situation is unique and different from anything else on TV, which helps to make it special. Don't miss it!
