This review is a little late, but that might be a good thing. Hopefully, everyone has watched season three’s second episode and this won’t ruin too much for anyone. Even though the threat of human findings out about zombies loomed over the episode, the past week returned to the “brain of the week” format we all know and love. Tragically, the brains were those of a father and teenaged daughter. Fortunately for us, Liv and Major eating said brains were hilarious.
Not everyone can see a movie or TV show when it first releases. Sometimes, it takes years before you get around to watching something. There could be unknown, Indie films you had no idea originally existed. That’s where Throwback Thursday comes in. This week’s post is about the 2016 Jason Lew film The Free World.
If you’ve been on Twitter or Instagram recently, you’ve probably seen a Punisher poster that was so bad-ass it had to be real. The Punisher costars Ben Barnes and Deborah Ann Woll even promoted the bullet-riddled poster, which led many to speculate it was legitimate.
As awesome as that poster is, it’s in fact, fan-made. Giuseppe Spinelli is a digital artist from Italy and is the genius behind this awesome gift. Regardless if it’s real or not, it’s more than appropriate for Frank Castle and definitely hyped up the fan-base. We aren’t sure when The Punisher will exactly be released on Netflix, but at least we know it’s going to premiere in 2017.
In case you haven’t seen it, here’s that awesome poster I keep talking about. Make sure to check out Giuseppe Spinelli’s Twitter page. Hopefully, Marvel/The Punisher sees because it’s definitely the perfect artwork for the show.
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).
