Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

This charming series doesn't quite live up to the comedic heights of the hilarious What We Do in the Shadows. The early episodes feel a lot like run-of-the-mill parodies of sci-fi and horror clichés with only glimpses of Waititi and Clement's unique sensibilities. But the premise and the style are so strong (it's like Reno 911! meets Scooby-Doo), that there's every possible chance that the show grows into itself over time as it's forced to come up with more and more outlandish bogeymen for its characters to encounter.
