What We Do in the Shadows Reviews

What the critics are saying

  • “More often than not, however, “Shadows” crystallizes its black comic formula, shakes it around, and tries again. It’s hard to tell how long this one-trick pony will still have legs, but Season 2 proves that there’s a long way to go before the break of dawn.” –Eric Kohn, Indiewire
  • “While watching the first three episodes, this show reminded me of The Office but with a lot more violence, adult situations and neck biting. What We Do in the Shadows is a quirky and off-beat comedy worth checking out.” –Terry Terrones, The Gazette
