About this show

Based on the feature film of the same name from Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, "What We Do in the Shadows" is a documentary-style look into the daily (or rather, nightly) lives of four vampires who've "lived" together for hundreds of years in Staten Island. After an unexpected visit from their dark lord and leader, the vampires are reminded of what they were initially tasked with upon their arrival in New York over a century ago – total and complete domination of the New World. But what exactly is the best way to go about achieving said domination? The vérité camera crew follows along as the vampires set out to answer this query.

I think showrunner Jemaine Clement and his creative team (not to exclude Taika Waititi, who worked on it between other projects like Thor Ragnarok) have done a pretty spiffy job of reimagining WWDITS the indie feature film from New Zealand as a mainstream American TV series. The characters and story lines are darker and more savage, which fits a show that's set on Staten Island rather than Wellington, and like Flight of the Conchords it takes place in a New York City that will be much more familiar to people who've actually lived there on a limited income than those who've only seen it on TV or film (where, of course, it's more often than not Vancouver.) You probably won't make friends with Laszlo or Nadja or Nandor in the same way you may have with Viago and Vladislav, but if you find yourself missing them, don't worry, they've taken care of that too.

This is a great twist on the somewhat overdone vampire genre. The overarching plot has held up for me. The show is full of good acting with dead pan delivery, as well as subtle and dry humor. This is my new favorite show, so much so, that I've started watching for a second time. There are few shows that I will watch more than once! Love the music, too!

¡El espectáculo en sí es fantástico! ¡5 estrellas! Donde surge la decepción es el hecho de que FX y Google parecen lograr agregar comerciales a cada episodio, pero parece que no pueden hacer que el final de temporada esté disponible de manera oportuna. #Shame Es como si FX no pensara que cortar el cable y comprar una temporada completa era suficiente; quieren que los abandones por completo
