With the season 3 hitting our screens next month I’m looking back at the first two seasons of this compelling TV show created by Dianne Ruggiero and Rob Thomas (also responsible for Veronica Mars).
In the tradition of Lucifer, The Walking Dead and Preacher, iZombie is another comic to TV adaptation. Lucifer and iZombie follow a similar pattern, partnering with crime solving detectives, while trying to make their lives meaningful. In spite of this and a plethora of zombie shows and films, iZombie is unique enough to really draw the viewer into its world and tongue in cheek enough to make us laugh out loud.
iZombie is a delight especially with its male characters. Although the lead is female, Liv Moore (played by Rose McIver), most of the main players are male. These male protagonists (the good guys at least) fall prey to none of the usual toxic masculinity stereotypes. They are intelligent, funny, respectful of women and playful with each other.
