Trivia:
UTF officers have equipment very similar to that of a standard police officer with some minor differences. Rather than a telescopic police baton, the UTF carry retractable wooden stakes. They also carry UV guns to burn Vampires who can't be subject to sunlight, garlic spray for vampires rather than mace, as well as tranquilliser darts for taking down werewolves. Other weapon alterations include John-John's unorthodox usage of a baseball bat and a grenade launcher.See more »

A great buddy comedy! (Forget the gimmicky "zombie" & "mockumentary" labels.), 24 November 2011
Author: PaulVilla from Canada

On TV, what I like to see are interesting characters who have great interactions & decent evolutions. To my surprise, this show is delivering all of that!

Forget all the gimmicks other reviewers are highlighting. This show is more fiction than mockumentary - the camera-crew are actual characters in the story and they have dialogue. The gore & supernatural elements aren't the reason for the shows existence - they're used to create a humorous & surreal environment.

'Death Valley' IS a great "buddy cop" show. The characters are so charming. Each one is "fleshed out", with his/her own beliefs, quirks, skills. When they start interacting, it's just some of the best television you'll ever see.

The charm of this show is that the comedy is derived from the friendships between these characters...not artificial & annoying conflict. Because of their jobs (& the acting, & the writing)...you see a group that has a believable family bond. But because of their unique cultural, moral, & even sexual baggages...you get hilarious interactions & reactions whenever those baggages are brought up.

Compare this to say...'The Office' (American version). In that show, all they do is parade out any number of ridiculously annoying mental handicaps (Michael, Dwight, Andy, Kelly, etc.). Their unsubtle stupidity & artificial conflicts are supposed to generate comedy.

Another thing I'd like to highlight is that this show actually has numerous arcs!. Everything from the macro (police vs. demons) to the micro (Carla vs. John John) evolves as the show goes on. It's all done subtly, but by the end of the season...there are pay-offs on all these fronts (sort of!).

When you add this show to 'Awkward', MTV starts to look like a formidable & respectable network. This is praise from someone who's never...ever...thought highly of them.
