Jenna is played by Jonah Hill's sister.

She's even listed on IMDB as 'Jonah Hill's sister'.

Still watching, though I haven’t seen the latest yet.

As a series it hasn’t escaped the film’s shadow (and fun as that is it isn’t the pinnacle of the mockumentory), but the Energy Vampire, Colin Robinson, has come close.

But I’ll stick with it for now.

I've seen two episodes and have really enjoyed it. It has that rapid fire pace similar to a lot of American comedies but this is clever, funny and  quite scary at times.

It's the perfect vehicle for Matt Berry to slide into the big time with.

Watched a few eps of this and really Colin the energy vampire is far and away the best thing about the show. The episode with Vanessa Bayer as the emotional vampire was great stuff and the highlight so far for me.

I'll admit upfront I'm not a Matt Berry fan but I did hope his schtick would be well used here. Trouble is him and Kayvan Novak are playing it too broad, Natasha Demetriou is fine but underused. And I guess because of its subject matter, there's not much variety in what three vampires can actually do at night that won't simply be revisiting the movie.

I put off watching this because I thought it was gonna be a bit too US Office-y, and it sort of was, but I did enjoy the first two episodes. Doug Jones' elder vampire looks great. Knew it was him because no-one else is skinny enough to be able to have big protruding fake ribs like that.
