Tuesday The CW will be premiering its new series, iZombie
Zombies are certainly popular as of late with the success of the hugely watched The Walking Dead
and other recent projects like Syfy's Z Nation
and films the past few years such as World War Z
and Warm Bodies
. Comparisons are obviously going to be made by many. Upon reading about iZombie
, however, it seemed like it would be something different, and it was.iZombie
is a quirky and fun romp. It's got the humor and heart of Warm Bodies
, but it's definitely its own thing. The show doesn't take itself too serious at times, which is as it should be.
The series, which is based upon characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred for the comic book of the same name, follows Olivia "Liv" Moore, played by Rose McIver (Masters of Sex
, Once Upon a Time
), who has a bright future ahead of her in medicine and even a handsome fiance (Robert Buckley); everything is falling into place. Then suddenly everything is ripped away from her one night when she is turned into a zombie. Everything changes, from her look, to her upbeat personality.
