Tv Season Info

The Hammonds—husband Joel (Timothy Olyphant), wife Sheila (Drew Barrymore), and daughter Abby (Liv Hewson)—are a typical middle-class family living in suburban Santa Clarita, with Joel and Sheila working as real-estate agents for the same firm. While showing a house to potential buyers, Sheila throws up a great deal of vomit and a strange red ball of flesh. This causes them to lose the house's listing to their co-worker, the sleazy Gary West (Nathan Fillion). After vomiting, however, Sheila begins to show changes to her personality, becoming bolder and more impulsive. She exhibits physical changes as well, such as the lack of a heartbeat, thickening blood, and a strong craving for raw meat. Their neighbor's son Eric (Skyler Gisondo) suggests that Sheila may have become a zombie, a fact the family soon confirms. The Hammonds now face the challenge of having to keep Sheila fed on human flesh without alerting the authorities, especially their cop neighbors.

Audience Reviews for Santa Clarita Diet: Season 1

  • Jul 21, 2021
    It starts with writing that presents more as an idea or outline, then just rubbish direction so that the whole thing feels like a clunky superficial attempt at comedy horror. But surely the zombie-wife-in-suburbia idea is so fresh and the actors so well regarded that it will fly? It really doesn't. The acting is appalling, the motivations unclear ... the wife plays straight face the husband in parody mode. Everything is uneven and punch-scenes false and mostly unfunny. Even episode one, who laughs at lines like, "You're the queen of his spank bank". Well, why not drop in some gross farce when you have nothing else. Perhaps the creative team behind 'The Good Place' could develop this into something resembling comedy with characters and relationships you care about. Otherwise it is best left for dim-witted adolescents.

    Drew Barrymore doesnt sell the campy acting very well and it just comes off as bad. I could of maybe enjoyed this show if there weren't some really dumb plot points that make no sense. For instance, the fact she is undead suddenly is never explained other than she just threw up a lot. On top of that they have a cop neighbour continually watching them at night, he asks intrusive questions and even invades their private property to start investigating their lawn- and not once do they ever tell him to mind his own business (which is the nicest way to say it), which made me give up this show after season 2- despite the premise, that was the thing that decided it was too stupid for me.

    moderately funny show but very fun experience to watch

    Pretty hilarious, if you are into dark humor. Kind of reminds me of Dead To Me, but with more gore.

    Wasn't sure what to expect but I was very pleasantly surprised 😃
