So What We Do in the Shadows is back but in a TV series form. And produced in the US. Wowee. But is it any good? Sam Sinnott, our resident binge TV reviewer, is on the case. He reckons it's as funny and wholesome as ever, aww.
The Act is an adaptation of the story of Gypsy-Rose and Dee Dee Blanchard, and Sam is finding it pretty heavy to say the least. Sam's four episodes deep, and he's completely immersed, despite already knowing the story. Worth a watch but very heavy so be warned (sam says).
