Trivia

The term "Familiar" is not new. For example, it was use in passing to describe specific animals in "Bewitch" who did the bidding of witches. However, "What We Do In The Shadows" takes the time to explain characters such as Guillermo were "Familiar" yet did their Master's (Mistress) bidding in human form. In Guillermo's case, he is "Nandor's" Familiar with promise to make him a Vampire.

The 'documentary' on three traditional vampires and Colin Robinson may turn out to document phrases and terminologies movies and TV Shows just toss about in context only - but never define as "What We Do In The Shadows" has. See more »

As Good As the Movie... And That's Saying A Lot
28 March 2019 | by llhortonSee all my reviews

The original movie was hysterical from beginning to end and the same folks who wrote and starred in that one, wrote and directed this series. The entire situation is unique and different from anything else on TV, which helps to make it special. Don't miss it!
