Writerly Things 8/31/2020: What We Do in the Shadows
Have any of you watched the TV series: What We Do in the Shadows or read the books? I find the series extremely kooky and funny. There are four vampires but basically three of them ignore the fourth, an energy vampire, Collin. A familiar who wants to become one of them serves the Master, Nandor the Relentless. The female vampire is Nadja and her husband, Laszlo.
They make fun of themselves and other vampires. Nandor who when the Barron came to town, wanted to layer himself with glitter to get that Twilight effect. Nadja has a former lover who keeps getting reborn and beheaded over the years. She longs to be with him but is bored with the latest rebirth. His name is Jeff and she just can’t get interested in someone named Jeff.
Laszlo has a row with vampires who according to an ancient scroll have to fight on an ancient neutral turf. A roof top. There, each is to choose their best warrior. A huge beast is chosen for the werewolf pack, the vampires chose, Nandor, of course. He wins the battle by aid of a chew toy.
One episode has them facing the Vampire Council after the Barron is killed. The familiar tries to take the blame but the council does not believe him despite his insistence that it’s true. Instead, Nandor confesses the three killed him. They are sentenced to die by sunlight. When they are left in a pit to die, the familiar and Collin rescue them.
There are just such hilarious turns in this show. It’s on Netflix if you’re interested. So far, there are two seasons. It may be a bit racy for children.
