There’s a lot of buzz surrounding the new CW series iZombie. It stars a girl named Liv who gets bitten by a zombie. She can continue to act like a normal human being as long as she eats a brain every so often. So she gets a job as an assistant coroner. Perfect, right? Except whenever she eats brains, she absorbs the thoughts and memories of the dead person and it’s up to her to find justice for the dead. It has a lot of things going for it:
Cute Lead Girl
I love TV shows that star women! It stars Rose McIver whom I’ve seen in a few episodes of Masters of Sex season 2. I didn’t finish the season but she played her part as Vivian Scully very well in the series. You might also know her as the little sister of Susie Salmon from The Lovely Bones movie. (I skipped the movie because I loved the book. I didn’t want to get disappointed since it got bad reviews.)
It’s From The Same Makers as Veronica Mars
I’ve yet to watch Veronica Mars (someone lend me a copy of all seasons?) but I know people fell in love with Kristen Bell because of that show. It’s definitely going to be lighter than other zombie shows like The Walking Dead. I think it will be more like the movie Warm Bodies.
It’s Based On A Comic Book
Love the tagline “a mind is a horrible thing to taste” haha! Liv’s character is based on Gwen from the critically acclaimed comic book I, Zombie.
Let’s watch the first episode, game? It premieres in the United States March 17, at 9PM so that means it will be out on torrent tomorrow morning hehe. Game?
