iZombie: Season 1 (2015)

SEASON:

TOMATOMETER

Critic Consensus: An amusing variation on the zombie trend, iZombie is refreshingly different, if perhaps too youth-oriented to resonate with adult audiences.

Tv Season Info

Seattle medical resident Olivia "Liv" Moore (Rose McIver) becomes a zombie and loses her ambition until she begins working in the city morgue where she eats victims' brains for sustenance that also help her maintain her humanity in the first season of this sci-fi crime drama, based on the DC Comics series of the same name. Liv soon learns that her new diet enables her to experience a victim's memories that can be used to help solve the person's murder. She lets her boss, medical examiner Ravi Chakrabarti (Rahul Kohli) in on her secret, and together they embark on crime-solving missions. Complicating matters further is a former drug dealer (David Anders) turned zombie who is murdering homeless people for their brains in order to sell them to fellow zombies. Robert Buckley and Malcolm Goodwin also star.

Critic Reviews for iZombie Season 1

All Critics (51) | Top Critics (27)

iZombie is a delightfully ironic take on the horror genre. While as a police procedural it's far more Veronica Mars than Rookie Blues.

Oct 18, 2017 | Full Review…

Show creator Rob Thomas' touch on iZombie is a marriage of his tenacious super-sleuth Veronica Mars and his irrepressible love god Cupid (remember that 2009 Jeremy Piven gem?) with just the right mix of sleuthing and snogging.

Two words you don't normally find in the same sentence: "zombie" and "delightful."

[The] dramedy ... proves there are still some clever ideas to be had about the walking dead.

Mar 17, 2015 | Full Review…

She's also as appealing as anyone who eats human brains for a living could possibly be.

Top Critic

The CW has another winner in iZombie, which plops zombies in a police procedural and adds the wit of Veronica Mars.

Mar 16, 2015 | Full Review…

On the charming new iZombie, Rose McIver plays a former medical student bummed that she's become a zombie.

Mar 17, 2015 | Full Review…

With witty writing, a likable leading lady, and a terrific cast, iZombie is full of life, and one of the season's best new shows.

Mar 17, 2015 | Full Review…

The dialogue, the world and the cast are all enjoyable, and the show simply exudes potential.

Mar 17, 2015 | Full Review…

It's the Walking Dead/Quincy/Psych mashup you didn't know you wanted.

Audience Reviews for iZombie: Season 1

Based on a DC comic, iZombie is a fresh and exciting horror-comedy television series developed by Rob Thomas. In Season 1 the show follows a zombie named Olivia Moore who lives in hiding as a medical examiner, using her job as a cover to get access to brains, and helps police solve murders under the guise of being a psychic when she gets memory flashes from the brains she eats. Meanwhile, another zombie named Blaine sets up a secret network that supplies brains to other zombies living in hiding. The series' zombie mythology is quite interesting, with the infected holding back their rabidness by eating brains and temporarily gaining the personalities of the people they eat. But this does present a bit of a problem, as Olivia often comes off as schizophrenic and seems to be lacking in a personality of her own. Yet it does make for some fun comedy. Also, the casting is pretty good; particularly Rose McIver and David Anders, who deliver strong performances. Season 1 of iZombie is a promising start, but it needs a couple of tweaks to really break out.
