AKA, “When You Wanna Judge Whether or Not You Approve of My Taste”
Many of these are horror-adjacent. I realize that.
What We Do in the Shadows
A documentary-style comedy TV show about vampires to the tune of (equally need-to-watchable) Taika Waititi’s 2014 film of the same name. It’s hilarious with its blend of old-age vampires in modern day Staten Island, and the second season is slated to air April 23!
The Exorcist (TV)
I was hesitant about this at first, but the first season sucked me in and the second goes in for the kill. The first season has loose ties to the 1973 film which will have any fans snickering to themselves. All the horror is presented very well and the cast is so full of talent.
Blumhouse Presents: Into the Dark
A horror series produced by the television branch of Blumhouse Productions (Paranormal Activity, Get Out, The Purge), this series always delivers something to tickle my spooky itch. Not every mini-film is a home run, but the ones that are, really are. My personal favorites from the first season are Pure, Pooka!, and They Come Knocking.
It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
If you haven’t watched this show yet.. Please start. It’s hilariously awful with infamous Charlie Day, Rob McElhenney, Glenn Howerton, Kaitlin Olson and later Danny DeVito being.. Well.. degenerates. The self-awareness is there, though, which makes all the terrible things they do funny. Because all of us know at least one degenerate.
Teen Titans GO!
Okay, I know. Hear me out on this one. I know what you’re thinking, and… yes, it is a lot of wild slapstick “child” humor at times. But at other time, they throw in the most silly and subtle references that I just can’t help but laugh. It’s definitely something I put on in the background like during a meal or just general multi-tasking, but I say it’s worth a try!
For those looking for a new anime to watch.. You may have already watched this, but it’s always on my rewatch list. Noragami soared to fame with the manga thanks to its beautiful art and story done by a female team who go by Adachitoka. The anime is also stunningly well done, with a killer soundtrack that’s definitely worth looking into. Give it a go if you’re into stories about ghosts and the afterlife, and follow Yato as he aims to become a big-shot god. (Available in both dub and sub.. and I personally like both.)
Everyone I know will watch this show and fall in love. It’s silly, it’s informational, it’s relatable. Join Ryan and Shane as they explore stories of true crime, conspiracy, and the supernatural – and sometimes go on some wacky adventures along the way.
