“Dot Zom” iZombie explores the world of modern tech companies when Liv and Clive investigate the murder of a genius CEO with designs on preserving the best of Humanity after the Apocalypse.

iZombie – Season 5 Episode 3

“Five, Six, Seven, Ate!” iZombie goes back to basics when Liv and Ravi go undercover to investigate a murder in the midst of a dance competition. I fell in love with this show because it took a formula and executed it to near perfection through making great use of all the elements it had at…

iZombie – Season 5 Episode 2

“Dead Lift” iZombie continues its final season by continuing to develop the Human/Zombie tensions So far this season seems to be mixed in the message it’s trying to project. Zombies are portrayed as if they are a persecuted minority group but that doesn’t work when considering the position they actually occupy in society. The most…

“And He Shall be a Good Man” iZombie ends its fourth season with Zombies attempting to escape Seattle, an attempted execution and wrapping up several plot threads.

“Insane in the Germ Brain” iZombie continues to build towards the upcoming Human/Zombie conflict when Angus’ message reaches a lot more people than initially intended.

iZombie – Season 4 Episode 10

“Yippee Ki Brain, Motherscratcher” iZombie further explores Isobel’s contribution to the show as Chase redoubles his efforts to find out the identity of the new Renegade.

“Mac-Liv-Moore” iZombie puts New Seattle on lockdown as Blaine comes up with a new nefarious plan and the idea of Zombie virus immunity is explored.

iZombie – Season 4 Episode 8

“Chivalry Is Dead” iZombie explores the world of LARPing (Live Action Roleplaying) when Liv ingests the brain of someone heavily into the pass time. I say this episodes explores the world of LARPing, it would be more accurate to say that it makes fun of it with very little affection thrown in its direction. Given…
