"It is a Venn diagram of my most beloved TV preferences: goofiness combined with intense thought, looseness hammered down into a painstakingly perfect story," says Kathryn VanArendonk. "If I were just a half-step more pretentious, I’d probably call it 'silly TV jazz' or something equally obnoxious. There aren’t that many comedies like this. There’s the happily revived Tuca & Bertie, and there are elements of it in the way Superstore takes a mundane, often-dismissed setting and makes it revelatory. But the best very dumb, very serious show on TV right now is What We Do in the Shadows. The silliness in this show is visible right on the surface. It’s about four vampires who live together in a big Gothic mansion on Staten Island. That premise alone creates a lovely combination of roommate politics, vampire logistics, Staten Island, and the interpersonal dynamics of four individuals who in spite of having lived for many centuries, haven’t learned all that much about the world."
