Review: iZombie S02; more braindead fun!
So iZombie wrapped up its second season and all I got was the lovely Boxed set on disc!!! Slam DUNK I say, and I mean that!
A big step-up from the more “let us give this a try” feeling of Season 1, the Meat Cute massacre in the season 1 finale showed that this show can impress with some hardcore zombie action when it really sets its mind (pun intended… whenever I type brain or mind, I get this odd zombie-associations popping up) to it.
But at the end of Season 2 we get the carnage at the Max Rager party which was way more intense then I first could even fathom. We ALL were getting the feeling that season finale would be pretty intense, as we saw each episode clime towards a climax, with Liv and Drake, with Vaugh and Major, with Mr. Boss, with the Peyton-Blaine-Ravi relationship and then getting the finale with an all out Romero-vibe even.
And through it all we get plenty of characterization so we -the viewers- actually are able to care about all characters, be it the good-Drake who tries to do his best or the amnesiac Blaine or even the now-zombie-scratched Vivian, betrayed by daddy Max.
The cliffhanger sure made the show step up the ante, with a strong story focusing towards Zombie-Conspiracy even. Zombies who not only eat brains, but also USE their brains!
And might I just say that the show showing Liv’s Zombie-Snack-Time sure makes for amazing TV? The elaborate and diverse recipes and its presentations deserve surely that extra mention and kudos!
I cannot wait for the show to return and see how intelligent zombies will try to mark their territory. O, and I cannot wait what Blaine will get himself into!
iZombie is loosely based on the eponymous comic book series by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred and produced by the creators of Veronica Mars.
Season three of the detective series iZombie is now AIRING!!!.
