iZombie – Season 3 Episode 3

“Eat, Pray, Liv” iZombie focuses on Ravi and Peyton’s relationship while addressing the lingering issues of Major’s upcoming death and Blaine’s lack of memory. I’ve always loved the way this show keeps the character stories ticking over. Everything is treated as important and none of the characters ever feel like spare parts. Even Clive who…

iZombie – Season 3 Episode 2

“Zombie Knows Best” iZombie returns to more familiar storytelling when Liv and Major eat the brains of a father and daughter involved in a fatal car accident. So it’s back to formula this week but for this show the formula doesn’t drag the storytelling down in any significant way. It has always allowed the show…

iZombie – Season 3 Episode 1

“Heaven Just Got a Little Smoother” iZombie returns for a third season and focuses on the massive issue of Zombies becoming known to the general public. I wondered when this show was going to get around to exploring this as an idea. Zombies in this show are a hidden group within society who are able…

iZombie – Season 2 Episode 19

“Salivation Army” iZombie closes off the second season with the show’s first full on zombie outbreak to a degree that would make George Romero proud. The threat of this happening has always been hanging over the show but there have always been mechanisms in place to contain the zombie population. As crooked as Blaine is,…

iZombie – Season 2 Episode 18

“Dead Beat” iZombie prepares to close off season 2 with the situation becoming more dire for Major and reveals that will change the show forever. This season of iZombie ended with a double bill so as per my policy with Agent Carter I’m going to review this episode before I watch the next one. I…

iZombie – Season 2 Episode 17

“Reflections of the Way Liv Used to Be” iZombie completes its build to the season finale as Major’s secret comes out at the worst possible time and Liv throws herself into her work. This episode picks up shortly after the events of last week with Major waking up from Ravi tranquilising him and the two…

iZombie – Season 2 Episode 16

“Pour Some Sugar, Zombie” iZombie continues its race towards the season finale when Liv’s stripper brain gives Peyton significant information to help bring down Mr. Boss. Peyton as a character is handled strangely by the show. She can be a significant presence for weeks and simply disappear for a while with no explanation and no…

iZombie – Season 2 Episode 15

“He Blinded Me With Science” iZombie returns with a really busy episode that touches base with all of the different plots that are being developed both in the foreground and the background. The focal point -if there is one- is Blaine and his newly restored undead status. I loved the way this was handled as…

iZombie – Season 2 Episode 14

“Eternal Sunshine of the Caffeinated Mind” iZombie deals with the discovery of the tainted Utopium that can help Ravi find the cure and stop Major from reverting back to zombie form. This applies to Blaine as well but that’s a separate issue that I’ll come back to a bit later on. This episode lulls the…

iZombie – Season 2 Episode 13

“The Whopper” iZombie adds more connections to the overall season plot as Liv consumes the brain of a compulsive liar. I’m really liking this new trend of having the case of the week tie into the bigger plots going on in the background. It helps give the world a sense of scope and organically moves…
