Izombie Season 1-5 (2015-2019)

When I was browsing Netflix I suddenly saw IZombie. I remember seeing a trailer for this series years ago when zombies and vampires where a whole thing but back then I couldn’t watch it anywhere. But now I could and here we are

The story in short 

Oliva More is a medical resident with a big dream of becoming a heart surgeon. Until she finds herself at a party where everyone is going crazy. When she wakes up in a bodybag, her life is changed forever.. She breaks up with her fiance and gets a job at the morgue so she can feed herself. And that is where we meet her.

What did I think?

This series is great. It doesn’t take itself too seriously but also breaks down so many facets at the same time. Having a disease and not being able to tell others, or not being able to help others in a way you would otherwise. But also how being different might make you able to do things others cannot. The first two seasons were incredible. But after a while.. the side stories first with Blaine, then Blaine and his Dad, and Seattle finding out. I think by the end there just wasn’t much more to do and it showed.

I loved the cooking segments though, they were my favourite. I also really loved the friendship between Ravi and Liv, I think the actors had a lot of positive chemistry.

Spoilers from here on out: I didn’t like the ending. I found in general it to be nice for Liv to end up with Mayor. However, it is very stupid in my opinion that they wouldn’t have taken the cure. Mayor expressed many times that he would have rather died than be a Zombie and Liv wanted the cure so bad. I wouldn’t have minded the ending so much at all if they both just went back to being human.

Having said this, I cannot for the life of me understand why it all had to be a secret that they were still alive, especially years later when things had died down. I still really enjoyed watching this series and I would recommend it.

Lots of love,
