When iZombie was first announced, I was reluctant to get onboard. I am not ordinarily a fan of Zombies. I have proudly never watched an episode of The Walking Dead. But the brains, so to speak, behind the series belonged to Rob Thomas, creator of the late, lamented series Veronica Mars. For that reason alone I had to give it a shot. iZombie turns out to be a clever riff on the detective genre not dissimilar to Veronica Mars. Both series feature twenty-something blondes who solves crimes with a voiceover narration, but there is one very big difference: Liv is of course a zombie. Veronica Mars was a throwback to film noir movies of the 1940’s and 50’s mixed with a healthy dose of teenage angst, with Veronica as the wisecracking heroine, while iZombie is more of a lighthearted comedy wrapped in the guise of a police procedural.
