Storyline

Donald Longtooth is a vampire with a conscience. Rather than feed on innocent people the un-dead creature of the night obtains the supply of blood he needs by other means. Which is working the night shift as a security guard in a Blood Bank. Problems arise when Donald's mean spirited boss, Mr. Corsswhite informs the staff at the bank that there will have to be budget cuts made due to the shortages of blood. The thought of the other staff members losing their jobs due to Donald's pilfering pricks the un-dead blood-suckers conscience and he hits upon a way of replenishing the stock which attracts the attention of a relentless vampire slayer.

Different from your usual vampire story
26 July 2009 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Something else entirely. This is a very goofy episode and very different from your usual vampire story. Not the first time the show has vampires, but it is more successful and more fun.

As the title says, the episode is about a reluctant vampire working as night shift at a bloodbank. He doesn't want to kill people and falls in love with one of his co-workers.

The episode plays out very nicely in the end, and the humor is laugh-out-loud funny. The show has had more comedic episodes but most of them with the exception of 'All Through The House' are too over the top to be considered great. This one was subtle and campy in a great way.
