Is the 'What We Do in the Shadows' movie or TV series better?

When something brilliant comes along, people like to try their best to ensure it’s never ruined. But then Hollywood says otherwise and makes sure it beats that horse of a franchise way past its death. Luckily, this didn’t happen with “What We Do in the Shadows,” a Taika Waititi movie that was so popular, FX made it into a show! Some will stand by the original film, claiming that it’s more delightful than the TV series. Others say the latter is best, expanding on a plot they can’t get enough of. What do you think?

“What We Do in the Shadows” is mockumentary following a group of vampires trying to just take it easy in modern life. There’s Taika Waititi himself as Viago, the well-intentioned quasi-leader with a complicated love life; there’s Jermaine Clement as Vladislav the Poker, who used to be tyrannical but now just pokes…other things; and then, finally, Jonathan Brugh as Deacon Brucke, who really just wants to be cool. It’s a simple plot, but man, do the jokes deliver.

As much as “What We Do in the Shadows” as a movie was brilliant, the show is even more so. Sure, there was some trepidation with diehard fans about FX potentially mucking things up, but no—the network was able to expand upon and enrich the original work into a hit series. Thanks, FX!
