Television What We Do in the Shadows

Recommended Posts

 

 

Loved the movie (watch it on Netflix now if you haven’t) Now it’s a tv a series on FX and it’s pretty close to matching the movie. Haven’t seen any of the original cast make an appearance but the new cast is pretty great. Even bring in new vampires that feed off your energy by cornering you and boring you to near death at work, or off people just arguing.

The movie was so good, funny as fuck. 

 

Gotta check into this, thanks for the heads up as I wasn't even aware a show was being made.

We've been enjoying it so far. The pilot is very much a B version of the movie, but I think as it strays farther from the film it becomes easier to appreciate the show on its own merits.

 

So if you loved the movie and feel let down at first, I'd suggest you stick with it. There have only been four episodes so far, and I think they keep getting better.

Hysterically funny show and it makes me want to see the film so bad now.

I find it weird you watched the show before the movie

Started watching this and I honestly feel the characters in the show are more likable than the movie and enjoying it.  The movie didn't really click with me.

:clap:. Those cameos lol.  Funny they went by real names but we're in vampire character.

 

Who was Rob they referred to that wasn't there?  I can't remember that reference

Rob Pattinson of Twilight.

 

They had at one time Alexander Skarsgard down but was filming in Australia and had to drop out. Brad Pitt was also contacted and he too was apparently down to doing it until scheduling problems in L.A. (Show is filmed in Toronto) Tilda Swinton was on board from the get go, as they became friends when both their vampire films debuted at SXSW IN 2014. Clement said they didn’t even try for Cruise but he did say that it could change with a 2nd season getting the green light. Same goes for all the actors mentioned in the show, that were no shows.

Ohhhh twilight. Yah that stuff was blocked out which is why it didn't click lol

 

If Pitt did that dumb little cameo in deadpool I can see him being a good sport for this if it was worked

Yeah considering there is a season 2, the plot threads left going forward, and considering how game Brad & Tom are, that would be insanity! I wonder who else they could get haha

 

That episode was perhaps THE best episode of television I have yet seen all year, legitimately.

Yeah he’s always down for dumb stuff. Remember he did that bit for Jackass where he was in the bear costume.

I didn't even realize this show was already airing.  I have some catching up to do.  I loved the movie and thoroughly enjoy the work of Taika Waititi in general.  I own all his New Zealand comedies on Blu ray.

I loved the movie so much! Laughed my ass off. I don't have FX though. :( Are there other streaming options to watch the show?

The idea of an energy vampire is also fucking gold 

 

Everytime he makes the Vampire face at the camera after draining someone it gets me 😂

 

3 episodes in an honestly I think I love the TV vampires way more than the Movie ones. The werewolf episode was amazing. Although i was a bit disappointed Rhys Darby didn’t show up lol

The Barons night on town had me in legit tears, the chemistry between the 3 leads and Guillermo is incredible.
