iZombie: Brother, Can You Spare A Brain?

Let me tell you, I really liked the first episode of iZombie, but this one threw it out of the park…


This episode is all about Liv having something more to live for and appreciating life a bit more. Due to the corpse of the week, a famous painter with a passion for live, Liv gains some of his way of living, which means she sees beauty in everything and everyone – so much so that she starts hitting on everything that moves…

This eventually leads her to make a move on Major, you know, the ex-fiance she broke up with and that has been pining for her for 6 months, but him, feeling hurt and confused, shuts her down. Well done sir!

The other side of this episode was Liv finally meeting the other zombie, Blaine (David Anders), or him meeting her. He talks a good talk, saying how he’s changed and how sorry he is for turning her and so on, but Liv is not buying it (good reason she has too). Turns out Blaine sees an opportunity for business in the whole zombie thing and willingly turns somebody else, promising to supply her with fresh brain if she pays up.

It was a fantastic episode Liv (Rose McIver) and Blaine (David Ander) have an amazing chemistry and I can’t wait to see their banter on future episodes. Ravi (Rahul Kohli) is great and he needs to get out of the morgue more and interact with people… he’s hilarious while interacting with people.
