What We Do in the Shadows Season 4 Review

Immortal vampires embrace classic comedy as they nurture a bundle of joy in What We Do in the Shadows season 4.

What We Do in the Shadows gets a major infusion in season 4. Baby Colin (Mark Proksch, et al.), or “the thing which crawled out of the dead Colin Robinson’s chest cavity,” is a fount of fresh blood. He is a new take on an old character, who also energizes the cast around him, for now. Laszlo (Matt Berry), who passed on a chance to revisit the world to raise the budding energy vampire, is also the same hedonistic scatterbrain who lets the child explore dark gas leaks with lit candles. Nadja (Natasia Demetriou) almost learns to discern the baby from a raccoon. Nandor (Kayvan Novak), well, really doesn’t care, as long as Guillermo (Harvey Guillén) cleans up after all the messes.

In the season 3 finale, the main cast was thrown asunder to the world to embark on adventures beyond the vampire house which binds them. Laszlo rerouted Guillermo’s travel plans to accompany Nadja, leaving Nandor on a train platform with an extra ticket and too much baggage. The reunion is set up perfectly, moving from Doll-Nadja’s introduction to Nandor’s surprisingly boisterous entrance in one sweeping encapsulation of the group dynamic. We barely miss the temporarily-lost-in-transit Guillermo. But it’s the ever-horny, impatiently impetuous Laszlo who owns the scene. He’s got one thing on his mind, and Matt Berry thrusts this into every physical motion he makes. Even his eyebrows ooze arousal, the promise of more arousal, and the increasingly urgent question of why it hasn’t graduated beyond arousal.

 

Nadja has a new power, and it may prove to be far more effective than vampire hypnosis. Natasia Demetriou has an almost operatically trained range of funny voices, but she shatters the glass ceiling this season. Nadja’s short term in the International Vampiric Council is disappointing, given the possibilities offered in international affairs she could have enjoyed. Nadja is the most Twilight-like, hormonally-raging, eternal teenager of the undead trio, and it fuels her every decision. Except, sadly, on the council. Reminiscences of her screwing her way through the European vampire community might have been fun, but may also have risked falling into cliché. Nadja saves that for her plan to open the hottest vampire nightclub in the Tri-State Area. This only makes us root for her more. It is going to be a beautiful disaster, we hope, as it becomes one of the constants in season.

Guillermo seems to have regressed. Harvey Guillén brings him on strong, but ultimately, Nadja is right, it’s just one complaint after another. It’s a relief the silent treatment bit can’t work because it would have been tedious, and is funnier as a wasted effort. But it is a shame the first chance Guillermo gets to live up to the good Van Helsing name, he only stoops to conquer. The ongoing sexual tension between him and the Guide (Kristen Schaal) is a comedic counterpoint to the will-they-won’t-they-style tensions of Mulder and Scully on The X-Files, and currently on Paramount+’s Evil. What We Do in the Shadows, however, turns it into a delicious catch-22.

The thing which crawled out of Colin Robinson’s chest cavity is a fast learner. While still a toddler, he bests the great swordsman Laszlo in a duel. This may not seem like much of an achievement. He was evenly matched by Mark Hamill’s Jim the Vampire with a broken pool cue, and Doll-Nadja disarmed him completely after just a few lessons.. We asked whether anyone could beat him, or did they just have to be shorter than him.

“No, just those three people,” Matt Berry told Den of Geek at the What We Do in the Shadows media junket. “But let me say, Baby Colin is an incredible swordsman.”

Baby Colin becomes increasingly fascinating until he sucks all the air out of the room. It’s exhaustingly hysterical waiting for him to stumble into something far more dangerous at any juncture. His popup horseplay is the comic equivalent of jump scares in horror films
