This bat-on-the wall documentary series follows a group of vampires living on Staten Island, New York.
Yes, it’s a comedy, based on a movie of the same name made by the awesomely strange Taika Waititi (Waititi’s version was set in New Zealand and I think he’s the executive producer of the TV series).
Now I’m a big fan of Matt Berry, so I’m probably a little biased, but I think it’s the funniest thing I’ve seen on telly this year. The script is hilarious, the acting is brilliant, with standout performances from Berry (of course), Natalia Demetriou, Harvey Guillén, Kayvan Novak, Mark Proksch … yeah, I know, that’s pretty much the whole cast, but they’re all really really good.
If I’m honest, I wasn’t so sure about Colin Robinson, but over the two seasons, he’s actually grown on me. He’s still annoying, obviously, but he’s supposed to be; it just took a while for my sense of humour to realign.
What We Do in the Shadows is definitely worth a look if you’ve got a few half hour slots to spare. Yet another ten out of ten.
