iZombie has the potential to be a younger, less aging Castle or Bones-like procedural with entertaining cases, lots of humor, and likable quirky characters. It has the same executive producers as Veronica Mars and is based on the comic iZombie. Basically it’s like, what if Veronica Mars was a med student who got turned into a zombie.
Liv Moore—another acerbic, tiny blond, much like Veronica or Buffy — has the perfect life as a brilliant medical intern with the perfect fiancee. That’s all destroyed the one time she goes to a party with a colleague and is turned into a zombie. Now she works at a morgue, in order to have access to brains, and discovers she gets flashes of the person’s life when she eats their brain. Her zombie-knowledgable morgue co-worker volunteers her to help a cop solve the murder of the latest Jane-Doe, but tells him she’s a psychic, instead of a zombie, and Liv begins to build a new life for herself.
It’s on the CW on Tuesday nights at 9pm ET, available to stream on Hulu and the CW, and episodes are available for purchase on iTunes.
