Vamps popped up on TV recently, so I watched because vampires, and also because of the cast and writer/director Amy Heckerling. It’s sort of uneven but has some good laughs. It also contains some interesting spins on how vampires work, how they get by in society night to night and ways to hunt them in a surveillance society. There’s also some nice character work about Goody dealing with having been twentysomething for decades and not always dealing well.

An early joke about her reaction to a nosebleed as she avoids human blood suggest it could have been a lot darker - or quite a lot grosser - than the light tone it mostly maintains, give or take the occasional dismemberment.
