NOTE: I'm disappointed that this is only being released in a DVD-on-demand format. It could really find a cult audience if it got a traditional DVD/Blu-ray release.

One of the silliest, bawdiest, goriest, and most surprising shows of the 2011 season came (from of all places) MTV. The comedy/horror mash-up "Death Valley" was one of the most unexpected delights I had this year. It's certainly never going to be judged as the "best of" television, but I absolutely loved this show's commitment to its inspired and insane premise. For sheer entertainment value, it was one of the programs that I most anticipated with each new episode. Set in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, the show posits the question about what would happen if the Valley were overrrun by zombies, vampires, and werewolves. The Valley, for those unfamiliar with the area, is already a bit of a punchline in Los Angeles (I can say that as I lived there for over ten years AND loved it) for its perceived lack of urban sophistication and giving birth to the Valley Girl phenomenon. It's a terrific setting, therefore, for the "Death Valley" brand of lunacy and it makes the most of actual and authentic location shooting. The show centers around the UTF (Undead Task Force) and is done in a "Cops" format with television crews assigned to the traveling officers. The addition of the civilian, largely expendable and anonymous, TV people adds a lot to the show's hilarity. Think "The Walking Dead" merged with "Reno 911" and you've got a fair idea of the show's appeal, but it maintains a striking originality despite these easy comparison points.

"Death Valley" has assembled a terrific cast that sells each episode with great enthusiasm.

Stumbled onto this show when i was on vacation, late one night, in the USA. Had never heard anything about it before, and just happened to catch the pilot episode. Good gosh was it hilarious! Well-written, great premise, well-executed with a great ensemble cast.

I don't know anyone else that has even HEARD of it, but if you like goofy horror or mockumentary-comedy, then I would highly recommend checking it out. A real diamond in the rough.

This show was a surprise, I honestly did not expect much going into it, and I got a lot of laughs out of it. So overall, awesome. The characters are not one note (another surprise) and even the sex-fiendish type guy is funny in the overdone character that he plays. If you enjoy gore and snark, this show does that combo pretty damn well.

I stumbled on to this MTV Show, which is a great blend of Reno 911/Cops meets Buffy and Supernatural. I loved the story of a local police force whose job it is to deal with the supernatural now that vampires, zombies and werewolves have come out to the general public. From the guy who gets pulled over and cited for changing during a full moon instead of being inside where he can't attack unsuspecting citizens to the teenage punks that two officers are constantly reprimanding for teasing the zombies the show was full of hilarious episodes that juxtapose real life questions about what a police officer would do in such a situation. With a twist, of course, since this show is primarily a comedy loaded with great one liners and twisted comments.Let's just say the Walking Dead crowd should have had some of the officers of this TV show on their side. No zombie would stand a chance as these officers take down the baddies with style and grace and more than a little touch of sly humor.

I was looking forward to learning more about the story as the characters were developed and new problems entered their lives such as the Captain's niece getting gang-fanged and now becoming a vampire or Carla, the pretty lesbian police officer, starting to admit she had feelings for her handsome male partner. Alas as with most great, original TV shows this one was not renewed. I think likely too many people just didn't get it's particular band of humor or even get that it was indeed a comedy. Or maybe they didn't know to go looking for a show like this on MTV. Even I was initially skeptical since this isn't the typical fare of the MTV generation. Sigh, maybe someone out there will take pity on those of us who want more and this will get renewed somewhere down the road.
