OMG! There is this new show on The CW “iZombie” and I just can’t get enough of it. I really wasn’t planning on getting hooked into a new zombie themed show but iZombie is one of those shows that literally grew on me. I’m going to be honest with you guys and say that in the beginning I wasn’t really feeling this show. The promos and teasers for this show really didn’t captivate me. I also wasn’t too sure if The CW had it in them to pull of a zombie show. Well if you’re guessing correctly I was wrong because I love this show. iZombie has everything I love in a show wrapped up in it. It has crime, drama, mystery, romance, and a lot of comedy. iZombie follows the life of Liv Moore, former medical resident turned Zombie, who is now working as a coroner’s assistant at the King’s County Medical Examiner’s office where it’s literally an all you can eat brains buffet. If you ask I think Liv is pretty smart because she totally picked the perfect job to get food aka brains. The only problem is that every time she eats a new brain she takes on various character traits from subjects. One time she ate this young mother who was murdered brain and as a result of this brain, Liv’s maternal instinct kicked in and she literally wanted to take care of everyone, she understood her mother more and she also had the instinct to look in on the dead mother’s baby and she made sure that he was taken care of properly. I just think it’s so cool how each brain affects her differently and changes little things in her. The only crazy thing is that Detective Clive Babinaux thinks she’s psychic and she helps him solve almost all of his cases. So she’s like a crime fighting/solving Zombie. The concept of the show is really interesting. I love how her boss Ravi knows about her condition and is trying to find a cure for her Zombieism. The craziest thing about this show is how her former life is sort of merging with her current life. Her ex-fiancé Major, who she broke up with because she became a Zombie, is starting to get a little too close to this Zombie business with his investigation into the disappearance of the homeless kids at the group home where he worked. It’s a little too close for comfort and right now his face bears the results of his meddling into this Zombie business. This show is definitely on my must watch list every week. I really don’t know when the season finale is but I do know that the show got picked up for a second season, so if you’re a fan of iZombie like I am then you’re in luck. If you would love to check this show out be sure to get caught up on Hulu or The CW App.
