No, this is not a Throwback Thursday, although the film (or films) I’m writing about are not current. At times, it takes me a while to watch movies or shows, and I am not the biggest fan of horror. Which, is the reason for not having watched any of the three Purge movies. The concept, from trailers; was not something that appealed to me. Not until recently and now, I’ve seen all three. Let’s begin a thought analysis, shall we?
It’s been seven minutes since iZombie season 3 episode 1 ‘Heaven Just Got a Little Bit Smoother’ aired and I’m still reeling from excitement. What a jam packed episode! I hope many of you Zoms out there got to watch it. This review will contain spoilers, so if you haven’t watched the episode yet, be forewarned!
In two days, the third season of CW’s iZombie will premiere. If you haven’t heard about it, I would highly suggest binge-watching the first two seasons on Netflix immediately. For diehard iZombie fans, such as myself; it has been a long and agonizing wait. Season 2’s finale aired on April 12, 2016 and in an act of cruelty, we fans were made to wait a year for the next season.
Do not let this deter you from watching iZombie. If the name of the show doesn’t leave much to be desired, it’s okay. The first season of iZombie came and went without me giving it any thought. It was only into the second season that I caught up on Netflix and was instantly hooked. A fun, adventurous crime drama revolving around an undead zombie is not all this show has to offer. Liv Moore is the heroine that we all need and the supporting characters are just as important to the story.
For most of the two seasons, iZombie has had a “brain of the week” format. Due to her need for brains, the main character Liv works in a morgue with her boss Ravi. And not only does eating a victim’s brain help curb her appetite, it also helps local detective Clive Babineaux catch the killer. Liv also has a best friend in Peyton and her on again off again fiance Major Lilywhite (yep, that’s his name). On top of that, iZombie has possibly one of the best frenemy relationship between Liv and the zombie who turned her, Blaine.
Not to spoil too much, the third season will throw in a new dynamic to iZombie. Not only does everyone in Liv’s inner circle know her zombie secret, but there’s apparently an overwhelming amount of zombies in Seattle. And they have every intention of making the whole world know they exist. On top of her personal relationships and solving crimes, Liv will have to decide whose side she wants to be on: humans or zombies.
iZombie Season 3 airs April 4 – this Tuesday on CW at 9 pm. I promise you, it’s a good time.
iZombie stars Rose McIver as Liv Moore, Rahul Kohli as Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti, Malcolm Goodwin as Clive Babineaux, David Anders as Blaine Debeers, Robert Buckley as Major Lilywhite, Aly Michalka as Peyton Charles, and is directed by Rob Thomas (known for Veronica Mars).
A summary of TC Stark’s Reviews
You may be asking yourself, who is TC Stark? She’s me!
As a passionate lover of movies and TV shows, I decided to start this site to share my thoughts and reviews. Here, I hope to give readers honesty and professionalism with each article. I’ll also be keeping up with the latest news stories. Most of what I write will be Marvel or DC related, but I don’t like to limit myself. Since Netflix is my best friend, I find myself watching shows or films that are a few years old and I’ll want to talk about them. So, expect that kind of riveting journalism!
In all seriousness, I have been writing for fourteen years now. I have published several books on Kindle and contributed to several sites such as MCUExchange, The Source by SuperheroStuff, and iZombie Support Group. Click on the links to check out my published pieces!
The good thing is we have a lot of great stuff coming up. Guardians of the Galaxy Vol 2, The Defenders, Baby Driver, Wonder Woman, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and so much more coming out in 2017. iZombie season 3 premieres on the CW at 9 pm on April 4th, so I surmise that will be my first review. If you’re a fan (which you should be), check it out with me!
Thanks for sticking with me for my first post and I’ll see you at the next review!
