When over-achieving medical resident Liv Moore attends a party that turns into a zombie feeding frenzy, she ends up joining the ranks of the living dead. Determined to pass as human despite her pale appearance and newly listless demeanor, Liv forms a plan to resist her drive to consume fresh human brains by taking a job at a coroner's office, where she can secretly snack on the brains of corpses delivered there. Soon discovering that she absorbs the memories of those she feeds on, she finds new purpose by posing as a psychic and working with a detective to help solve their murders.

I was pleasantly surprised by this. The synopsis makes it sound boring but once you watch it, its pretty entertaining.

It's based on an existing comic, so somehow I don't think that's how that went down.

### Synopsis The main character Liv Moore dies and comes back as a zombie. She changes her entire way of life and starts to work in a morgue where she can get all the brains she needs. Every time she eats a brain, she gets visions and abilities or properties from the deceased and with those she helps a detective solve cases where those original brain owners were involved in. Pretty straightforward synopsis and if you can accept the "_eat brain, get visions/abilities_" premise of this show you're in for a great treat. ### The Great Treat Most of all the writing is consistent. The plots aren't stupidity driven as they are on major network shows these days, nor are the plots dragged out with nonsense you don't care about. The acting is believable, the actors play likable characters and those have depth. They aren't cardboard characters or dull stereotypes, they all have their backstory and purpose. While this is an adaption of a comic there are apparently issues to overcome. For example filling the time that you have in a TV format with dialogues. I haven't read the comics and can't comment on how faithful the series is overall but it definitely delivers the concept very well without having to know the comic. Comedy is rather subtle here but usually very sweet. The humour comes often from the brains Liv eats and are situational. Matching that comedy you get here and there fitting popculture references, like a very dark humorous, self ironic and absolutely brilliant Fight Club reference. ### Oh, Another Show With Zombies... Especially shows with zombies are more and more frowned up on these days. People are slowly fed up with stories involving zombies. But this one takes a different approach. As of yet (S01E10) there is no humans vs zombies, no apocalypse, just a how does a zombie try to live a normal, daily live kind of situation. Spiced up with brain induced antics, murder cases and a plot involving the commercial exploitation of zombies, in a way at least. ;) Each episode involves therefore a new case, a case that usually in some way is linked to the overall plot and therefore a new piece to the puzzle of the show. On the other hand, because there's no apocalypse here, this show is not an action driven show. Nor is it a show where you can completely shut off your brain but I'd say it would work as a calm down kind of show. You had an exhausting/stressful day at work, school, university, etc. and need to calm down, get your minds off things in the evening? Watch iZombie. Due to the aforementioned, it is a rather lighthearted not too serious show but it definitely is very enjoyable. Personally this show, after the sad and undeserved cancellation of Forever, is my most favourite airing show. ### Although Since it is a lighthearted show that doesn't take itself very serious at times - in smart ways nontheless - it may not please everyone. The cast seems a tad too young but I wouldn't go as far as to say there are miscast persons on this show as there are on other, bigger shows. When you dislike the synopsis, or think it sounds cheesy, that may be your right to say or think, but I think you misjudge this TV show very much and miss out on an incredibly enjoyable show that doesn't insult your intelligence with plots that get more and more ludicrous with each episode. Something bigger networks try more and more these days with each new show. Charming shows like these are sadly a dying kind.

great .... great.... i wish that cw continue ....

avatar

at first I wasn't sure, but now it's one of my favorite shows *-*

avatar

iZombie is way cooler than any other DC-adaptation TVshows, Arrow, Legends of Tomorrow etc. Looking forward to the third season.

avatar

This show is great! So glad CW decided to renew this for S3!!

avatar

You wouldn't expect much of the show because of the silly name, but it is a really good show. It isn't the same vibe of twd but it's really good.

avatar

A not so fresh... yet fresh approach. Zombies- definitely not fresh. Y'know, It's been a while since I discovered Zombies...and all I can do now is vomiting at the sight of a Zombie. But, this show is kinda fresh, I enjoy the comedy here. On my watchlist! Give it a try... you may have to force yourself in the first 5-10mins if you're not a fan of comedy/family drama, but it's worth it- at least I think it is.

I can just hear the guys in the boardroom at The CW.. "We need a zombie show!" "OK How about this, this girl becomes a zombie, then to stay human she eats brains, but then gains the memories of the person she just ate the brain from, and uses those to solve crimes!" "GENIOUS, YOU GET A RAISE!" Honestly tho, it sounds fucking stupid..
