Some might say that “I’m fallin’ for Colin,” but that would be a lie. I fell hard for Colin Robinson’s (Mark Proksch) energy vampire years ago, as he continues to be one of the funniest characters in WWDITS.
THE CAMPAIGN wisely reunites Colin’s energy vampire with the emotional vampire, played wonderfully by Vanessa Bayer. The pair have fun “Collinizing” Staten Island in the funniest episode yet in season five. Their sheer energy (or should I say “lack thereof”) works so well that I would love to see them team up more in the future.
The continued long game for Guillermo’s (Harvey Guillén) plot doesn’t work in THE CAMPAIGN. In previous seasons the creators tended to take his story and have it last the entire season, and it feels like his arc may well be doing that again. It’s not horrible, but sometimes I want the plot to happen quicker.
WHAT WE DO I NTHE SHADOWS continues to be the best dark comedy on TV that no one is watching. It airs weekly on Hulu FX.
