What I’m Watching: What We Do in the Shadows (Season Premiere)

What We Do in the Shadows: Season 4, Episode 1 “Reunited” (B)

This is only my second time watching this show as it airs, but I didn’t realize quite how little time has passed since season three ended in late October of last year. It’s remarkable that this show has managed to put out four seasons in four years given all the pandemic delays that have impacted other series, and this one is also back the same day as it managed a second Best Comedy Series Emmy nomination. It’s still growing on me a bit and I’ll admit that I expected the “previously on” segment to end with them staking vampires at the council meeting but then I was reminded that we already covered that storyline. I’m eager for Baby Colin, who Laszlo seems to think won’t turn into Colin Robinson if he refuses to say his name, to grow back into the character we knew before, or at least the same actor, and for now it just seems like everyone is constantly mistaking raccoons for him. It’s no surprise that Laszlo did a terrible job of taking care of the house while everyone else was away, and though he’d like to think that he’s going to move on, Guillermo isn’t going anywhere and will surely get things as under control as possible soon. I’m not sure which is less likely: Nadja successfully opening a vampire nightclub or Nandor finding a bride within the next few weeks. Either way, both efforts should be entertaining to watch flail, combined with some other truly terrible business ideas.
