Review: iZombie S01
As we all now by now COMICS is GOLDEN as material to base TV-series or movies on! iZombie as well! It is an adaptation of the comic series by the same name. The series is a supernatural crime procedural that centers on a med student-turned-zombie named Liv who takes a job in the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly – yet spiced up and she can really write a cook-book after each season! – eat to maintain her humanity. With each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories.
TO be fair, I really loved this series so far! It has fun moments, gore moments, action moments, loving moments… and it has a great cast with a good guy ex-boyfriend, this white-haired Liv-zombie who remains to be a good girl, Liv’s boss who is just a funny dork/nerd with that sexy English accent… then we have this psycho-Blaine character who is just peachy and the down-right frightening, over-zealous Max Rager character! Add to this some hot BFF to Liv, named Peyton, who is also the secret crush for Liv’s boss… enough to pass around and nibble on!
And as long as zombies eat their brains (Liv via the morgue and Blaine by his side-business running his funeral home) it seems they remain human in their reactions and interactions!
Sure we are looking for a zombie-cure, sure there still is that nasty powerdrink turning folks into zombies, sure this series even makes sure you have this pulse-pounding finale making you yearn for Season Two!
Overall this is just a great procedural, with a tiny overflowing storyline that feels like building into something bigger… so just sit back and enjoy! This is a fun ride!
