Heh, I just watched that After the Shadows! Tidbit: butt makeup was involved.

I'd add werewolves and Twilight to the tags.

Oh, Twilight baseball scene for comparison. If you look for it, you'll find that Muse, who provided the music for the scene, weren't exactly thrilled to be there; the phrase "sold our souls" comes up.

The revelation that Guillermo watches Twilight with the corpses of victims is one of the creepiest, saddest gags this show has ever done.

Enjoyed the Lazlo-Colin Robinson Bob Hope road trip movie that never was.

I want to know the story behind Laszlo getting his car impounded for taking miners across state lines so bad.

Was the Vampiric Council of the time union busting? Or was Laszlo poaching snacks from someone else's territory?

Kristen Schaal showing up to be furious Colin and Laszlo didn't use the garage door was obviously coming, but still hilarious.

Not really into the werewolves, generally, but the kickball game was fun.

I love that Lazlo could spot a fake Boner Brigade book from nearly across the library. Along with his pride in the penny pornos.

And even Kristen Schaal is afraid of the insurance people.

I also loved the runner about all the men thinking that Nadja hated Gail. But I am pretty sure that the proper name for a female werewolf is not werewoman.

The episode and that clip did a lot to explain Tessa Violet & lovelytheband's remix of Games last spring. I mean, I assumed it was Twilight-adjacent, but Twilight always felt like the wrong side of YA for me so I didn't quite get the reference.

Nandor is becoming something of a sweetheart in this season & I think it's cute.

Also did you guys catch the joke about "Everyone please take your heart worm pills" I chortled & then wondered if that was a knowing ivermectin joke or what. I'm choosing to believe it was.

Because that would literally mean "manwoman"

(The dustier parts of my brain are insisting that the proper name for a female werewolf is a wifwolf. It's not a very good brain, though, and those parts are very dusty.)
