"What We Do In The Shadows" is a series knock off of the rather eccentric comedy of the same name from 2014. This time the series moves from New Zealand to the USA. No doubt looking to tap into the much bigger US audience. That said, its cast is predominantly English and it employs Kiwi talent in the production, from the original film. Its not a bad move but just like the original film I'd suggest its humour will either appeal to you or it won't. I like things a little off beat and deadpan but I honestly struggled to find the first two episodes funny. For me I'd describe this series as more "interesting" than amusing. Its a novel idea that not entirely new. There are other series in a similar vein, such as "Being Human". That said this series is different enough to merit attention.Particularly the vampires often absurd lack of self awareness of how much the world has changed around them. Their longevity hasn't made them wiser its simply made them old and anachronistic. As it stands a decent effort I rate a 6/10.id : 5caa6db9925141146700ab2a
