    It's "Reno 911!" with bloody bite.

    Death Valley's scattershot satire has so many targets--scary-monster series, cop shows, mockumentaries, Hollywood posers, the suburban weltschmerz of the Valley--that despite the lackluster production and hit-and-miss writing some of the jokes are likely to connect.

    Unlike "Teen Wolf," MTV's other new monster show, Death Valley does not take itself too seriously or seriously at all - everyone involved seems to be having a good time, and as a result so do we.

While this has already been done multiple times, never have I seen it done with such ease. The dialogue, cast, humour, even the visual side (which is not really what you'd call top-notch, but hey, it's parody, right?) are right-away sweeping you off your feet and onto an armchair, preferably with a can of cold beer in your hand. Luckily the creators don't take the word "parody" the way lots of people do nowadays - they didn't just simply take a show and started mocking it in a way that stopped being even slightly amusing after ten minutes. The creators of "Death Valley" treat comedy very seriously. And most of all, they deliver. Full Review »

Basic plot is that Zombie, Werewolves and Vampires are sort of accepted. They are common place on every street corner. A Task for is set up to deal with them and this is filmed half from a TV crew angle but also from a fly on the wall angle. This series does not take itself at all seriously and people watching it should not also. I was impressed with the Vampires, Zombies etc as they worked well and the cast is pretty much bang on.
    I liked this from around 5 minutes in maybe less.
    At present it seems to have stopped being broadcast which is a terrible shame. They seem to do this in america. Start something and then leave it. It has not helped that it really has not been advertised in the UK. I stumbled across this online and watch a few clips.
    Great shame as this programme has made me want a Zombie infestation and to be a member of the task force to control them.
