User Rating: 0.00 (0 Votes)

Based on the hilarious 2014 comedy horror film of the same name, this sitcom-like TV series follows three vampire roommates living in New York City. Season 2 is set to premiere on April 15, so now’s the time to catch up with Nandor the Relentless (Kayvan Novak), Laszlo Cravensworth (Matt Berry), and Nadja (Natasia Demetriou), who’s married to Laszlo but is carrying on an affair with a human named Jeff Suckler (Jake McDorman), the reincarnation of Nadja’s former human lover, Gregor, whom she accidentally decapitated.

There’s also Guillermo (Harvey Guillén), Nandor’s patient “familiar,” aka servant, and Colin Robinson (Mark Proksch), an “energy vampire” who lives with the trio who can drain both humans’ and vampires’ energy because he’s so boring.

The sitcom’s a lot of satirical fun. Another recurring character is Jenna (Beanie Feldstein), a LARPer and virgin who was supposed to be a vampire meal to feast on, but who Nadja felt sorry for and turned into a vampire. Jenna’s special power is invisibility, because she was ignored as a human.

If you need a few laughs, this show reliably supplies them. (ongoing, 20 30-min. episodes) 

—Glen Starkey








Weekly Poll
What do you think of the Lompoc prison facilities' ways of mitigating the spread of COVID-19?

Definitely cruel and unusual—more people should have received home confinement.
It was certainly inhumane; inmates couldn't even shower for almost two weeks.
It was not great but was typical of our current institutions.
I think it was adequate given the situation.
