With the reveal of zombies’ existence and the takeover of Seattle, there are a lot of complicated things going on.
In a rare two-parter, iZombie continues last episode’s story with “Brainless in Seattle, Part 2.” It starts with a nasty scene in The Scratching Post, with a zombie getting beaten on by some guys from Fillmore-Graves. The F-G crew is looking worse and worse as this season goes on.
Taking a break from their usual (highly enjoyable) formula, Liv and her merry band of crimefighters embark on a rare two part story in “Brainless in Seattle, Part One.” The title is, of course, a play on the romantic movie Sleepless in Seattle, but Brainless works well when Liv comes under the sway of a…
One of the many things iZombie is great at is keeping me guessing. When I saw the “Blue Bloody” title, I was pretty sure it would have to do with Ravi’s brain serum that turns them blue and gives much longer lasting visions.

It’s a great time to be a hero-geek. There are more and more shows, and most of them are pretty damn good. I keep hearing a few people fretting about “hero fatigue,” but I certainly don’t have it, and, judging from the box office for Guardians of the Galaxy Volume 2, a lot of other people don’t, either. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is fantastic, with Spider-Man: Homecoming and Thor: Ragnarok coming this year. I’m a lot less impressed with the DC Expanded Universe (although I’m one of the few that apparently enjoyed Suicide Squad), but I was pleasantly surprised by Wonder Woman.
IZombie comes to the end of their season with, “Looking for Mr. Goodbrain, Part 2.” That kind of makes me wonder if next season will open with Part 3, but maybe that’s just me. Things don’t go really well for anyone, and they definitely do a major change in the status quo by the time they’re done. Next season is going to be a completely different show. There will be at least some spoilers below, so be warned.
