What We Do in the Shadows TV Show Review

Entire television series shouldn’t be critiqued on pilots alone, but that’s all What We Do In The Shadows had to offer eager South By Southwest victims (aside from Taika Waititi and Jemaine Clement’s uproarious improv introduction). Episodics often require a few inaugural chapters before hitting momentum strides, and pilots bare the weight of hypnotizing audiences while establishing tonality to come. In this bubble, FX’s new take on What We Do In The Shadows transplants the same approach, expressionism, and aesthetic of Waititi and Clement’s effortlessly entertaining “vampire world-shattering documentary” from New Zealand to Staten Island.

“Documentary” in quotations because, you know, *if* it were real (which Waititi and Clement both insisted). Read More »

Harry Lloyd Playing Professor X on Legion

For two seasons, the FX series Legion has focused on David Haller (Dan Stevens), a man who believed he was schizophrenic but discovered he might be the most powerful mutant in the world. In the comics, that’s mostly because he’s the son of Professor Charles Xavier, something that has only been hinted at on the show. We haven’t seen the telepathic mutant appear on the X-Men series yet, but that will change with the show’s third and final season.

Legion has landed Harry Lloyd as Professor X, though the extent of the character’s involvement in the end of the series has yet to be revealed. Lloyd may best be known for his role on Game of Thrones as Viserys Targaryen, the corrupt, doomed brother of Emilia Clarke’s Daenerys Targaryen. Read More »

What We Do in the Shadows TV Show

At a Television Critics Association presentation, FX held a panel for the network’s TV adaptation of What We Do in the Shadows, and creators Jemaine Clement and Taika Waititi, showrunner Paul Simms, and the cast of all new vampire characters were there. In a clip, they introduced the show’s newest form of vampire: an energy vampire. Colin Robinson (Mark Proksh) sucks people’s energy through boring conversation or annoying distractions, and the show treats this as a facet of vampire mythology (we got a glimpse of this in the brand new trailer as well). Learn more details about the upcoming comedy below. Read More »

Atlanta has become Donald Glover’s most popular creative endeavor, and that’s saying a lot considering his music career and his roles in Community and Solo: A Star Wars Story.
