Tread Perilously – ‘What We Do in the Shadows: On the Run’

Tread Perilously is a podcast in which hosts Erik Amaya and author Justin Robinson watch the “worst” episodes of popular TV shows, attempting to determine if they would continue to watch the series based on the most off-key moments.

This Week: What We Do in the Shadows‘ “On the Run”

Tread Perilously engages in a normal human podcast by watching an episode of What We Do in the Shadows called “On the Run.”

When a mysterious vampire tracks down Laszlo over the matter of an ancient debt, he abandons his life on Staten Island to become “Jackie Daytona” — a beloved local fixture and bar owner in Pennsylvania. Much to his surprise, Jackie becomes invested in the success of a nearby high school varsity volleyball team. But when the vampire who forced Laszlo to flee rolls into town, will Jackie walk away just when the volleyball team needs him most? Meanwhile, Colin Robinson makes an awkward proposition.

Erik tells the tale of his conversion to a What We Do in the Shadows fan. The pair debate how to say Mark Proksch’s last name. Justin enjoys Harvey Guillén’s weariness as Guillermo while Erik ends up really taking to the styles of Proksch, Natasia Demetriou, and Matt Berry. Mark Hamill also proves to be a great guest star. The actual placement of the episode in the show’s history becomes something of a mystery. Justin tries very hard to remember George Lopez’s name. Tom Baker is invoked, Tom Bombadil news is discussed, and the episode’s would-be Bella ends up a highlight … even as it leads to a chat about Mark Brendanawicz.
