Weekly review: iZombie


I think this is one of the most clever and original shows recently. It takes two overly done tropes and puts them together, which makes it a very interesting show. For those of you who don’t know what it’s about, I’ll give a bit of background. Liv Moore is a doctor in training with a bright future and a smokin hot guy, until she goes to a party and becomes a zombie. However, as long as she has a steady diet of brains, she can stay sane and not become a lumbering rotting monster. She starts working for the coroner’s office at the Seattle PD, and with the help of her also hot boss who knows about her zombie-ness, she eats the brains of murder victims and gets flashbacks to find out how they died. Β She starts helping out a Homicide Detective with cases, while also dealing with the whole, you know. Zombie thing.

Ratings:

Drama:Β πŸ’”πŸ’”πŸ’”

There is some great drama. Liv and Major, Ravi and Peyton, and other… relationships. The whole on-again off-again thing with LITERALLY EVERYBODY is really fun, and there’s jsut enough to keep it interesting, but not to much that it becomes a drama show. Also i super duper ship Liv and Major.

Action:Β πŸ”«πŸ”«πŸ”«πŸ”«

Whoop, fair amount of action in this show. You know. Cop show and zombie show. I really like the action, as for the most part, it’s good, suspenseful action. The zombies in their psycho-haven’t-had-brains-in-a-long-time are cool looking, and also Liv kicks major(‘s) ass.

Cheese:Β πŸ§€πŸ§€

I feel like there actually isn’t that much cheese in this show? Like, It’s pretty good? There’s some amnesia later on, which is annoying, but i think it’s really good.

Story line:Β πŸ“ˆπŸ“ˆπŸ“ˆπŸ“ˆ

It’s good! There’s your episode-to-episode story arcs, and the overarching plot line with Blaine and Major and Vaughn and all of them. They did this well.

Overall:Β πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯

This is a good TV show. It’s got a great balance of drama and action, it’s not super cheesy, and the plot lines are interesting.

This is totally something you should watch. Season 1 and 2 are on Netflix, and it’s so much fun! Liv is super great, and it’s awesome.

P.S. Just a clarification: These emojis aren’t the amount of that thing. It’s how good that thing is. Like, there isn’t much action in iZombie, but it’s good action. Does that make sense?
