Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Reginald the Vampire is a comedy-drama about a fast-food worker with self-confidence issues who becomes a vampire. The series begins by outlining the rules for vampires and how they change Reginald's day-to-day life, before slowly expanding the vampire world where the story takes place. Reginald the Vampire features some mild violence and gore but is mostly interested in Reginald's evolution and the characters' relationships.
Is It Any Good?
It's not just Marvel movies that are taking cues from comic books. Reginald the Vampire creates a world similar to plenty of superhero stories, beginning with an origin story and slowly revealing just how much evil has always been lurking in the shadows. The series mostly uses topics like Reginald's body image or Maurice's activist background as window dressing, relying instead on its low-key charm and world-building to carry the intrigue. Nothing really sets it apart from similar series like iZombie or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but for fans of those types of stories, Reginald should be just satisfying enough.
