    I just wish they'd done something with her other than just repeating the Sire plotline from the previous episode - down to her hiding in the same store even!

    Is it just me, or has the actor playing Guillermo lost a lot of weight? I just watched him in Werewolves Within the other day and the difference between what he was at in that and tonights episode is pretty noticable. Good for him.

    Hmm... I think you're right.

    In other news... damn. Nandor is hot!

    The weird 80s aerobic cult was great!

    That one definitely had a bit of a darker edge to it.

    Do you mean vamp depression? I thought that made a lot of sense.

    That and Guillermo dragging Nandor away as he pleads that he hasn’t been that happy in years. Even the desperate cult seeking something that’s out of reach and then the method of their release. It makes sense but it’s leans a little harder on the black comedy. Kayvan Novak pushed his acting chops a little bit helping to sell it.

    Yeah, Nandor's pleading was heartbreaking.

    Quirky but very entertaining, very pleased it made it a S3. Like the idea of weekly guest stars too.

    As an aside anyone recognize Guillermo from the Magicians? He was the map maker.

    Snipes, Donal Logue, is Stephen Dorff next, maybe Traci Lords?

    That withering thank you after Nandor has his member examined. :)

    Did that actually happen to Colin Robinson? I don’t know what to think, guess we’ll see next time.

    I'm guessing that his breed of vampire is like the phoenix; they die every 100 years, but then rise again from their own ashes, looking completely the same.

    Note how all the portraits of Colin Robinson in the opening credits are identical.

    I hope so. And that he’s friendship with Laszlo continues!

    Was it friendship or more just pity? Laszlo sometimes has more depth of feeling than most of the others, especially Nadja.

    It seemed very genuine in his speech at Colin Robinson's birthday celebration.

    I think Lazlo likes to act as if he doesn't care, but it's BS.

    I'm impressed with how they developed Laszlo & Robinson. I'm sure he'll be back. There's still next weeks episode. I suspect the others saying it's probably a rebirth thing are right.

    Nandors penis was hilarious, especially the call back. "Did you bring more people to ogle my PeePee?"

    Well, they certainly left things in an interesting place for the future. Laszlo being a magnificent bastard seemed about right. I can only imagine Nadia and Gizmo’s trauma when they emerge and poor Nandor floundering on his own with his Jansport.

    Well, not the end of Colin Robinson but more disturbing than predicted.

    My biggest laugh was Nandor’s observation that the little fucker can really move when he wants to.

    I think that was the theme to Toast of London he was playing on his piano...

    Poor, Guillermo and Nandor!

    Also, Lazslo has grown as a character.
