The second episode was entitled Vampirology in which Rex (Keith-Lee Castle) is a self-confessed vampire who allows a film crew to follow him around for one night, filming him and his friends. We learn of Rex’s self-spun philosophy and see him as perhaps arrogant and yet there is a pathos and sadness beneath the façade. Rex has a five point plan for life, know yourself, know your friends, know your enemies, know the kill and have no regrets. As we follow him around we hear from his friends, all of whom don’t really believe he is a vampire and some of whom blatantly dislike him. According to Rex he is one hundred years old. He has no fangs as he filed them down. He tells us that turning into a bat, aversion to garlic, aversion to candlesticks crossed to form a cross and holy water are all, in his own words, bullshit. He alludes to the fact that sunlight is dangerous when he explains that he uses sun-block. As for a stake through the heart, as he tells us, he doesn’t know anyone who would survive that. When asked if he is concerned about blood bourn disease he tells us that vampires have a robust immune system. In a nicely subtle moment we see him being interviewed outside a HIV clinic. ...».
