Created by Diane Ruggiero-Wright, Rob Thomas. With Rose McIver, Malcolm Goodwin, Rahul Kohli, Robert Buckley. A medical resident finds that being a zombie has its perks, which she uses to assist the police.
I actually finished this series last year but lost track of my show tracking and didn’t log this in my tracker, so here we are. iZombie is a show that originally was on the CW, ran for a total of 71 episodes from 2015-2019 and I think ultimately had it’s final season on Netflix? My limited research is unclear on that, but I know I watched the entire thing on Netflix, the great content vacuum in the cloud. Apparently the last couple seasons are difficult to actually purchase in either physical or digital forms, so if you want to watch it all on the same medium, papa Netflix is your only choice.
As for the show itself, if I told you that the guy that was in charge of Veronica Mars made iZombie, you’d immediately see it, even if you look past the pretty blonde white girl as the lead, the banter, the story structures and ultimate the ending of the show all feel fantastically familiar. I don’t mean that as a knock to either Kristen Bell or Rose McIver, but they do fit a particular stereo type.
I enjoyed the show, even despite it’s constant “are they or aren’t they” state of zombism and anti-zombie antidotes that seemed to flip flop characters every 6 episodes, it was a fun ride that I wish they had been able to wrap up a little better than they did. I’ve never read the comics and I hear that they’re somewhat different, so maybe I’ll give them a go and see how they wrapped up the story there.
