Discovering iZombie

Nerdiscoveries is a feature hosted by The Bibliophile Confessions where we share our new discoveries that totally make us nerd/geek out.

Hey y’all! Inah here! I’m really excited to share to you guys my recent discovery.

I guess it’s pretty much an established fact that The CW produces really quality TV shows. Almost all of the shows I’m watching (addicted to, actually) were produced by the network, like Supernatural, Arrow, The Flash, The Vampire Diaries and of course, The 100. The list possibly just goes on and on because last week, I have finally gotten around to watching iZombie. There might be mild spoilers in here. Sorry, I just can’t seem to shut up about this.

I first saw the trailer of iZombie on ETC, a local TV channel here in the Philippines, with my friends. My first impression was it was like the combination of Warm Bodies and Veronica Mars, because when Liv eats a person’s brain, she adapts some memories, visions and traits of the certain person and she uses this to help solve person’s murder case with the help of Clive, a detective. Cool right? Definitely!!

Liv’s character is really interesting, funny and quirky. It’s really empowering as well, seeing her kick some real ass in the show. She was engaged to Major but she broke it off after she turned into a zombie, because she didn’t want to hurt him. Major has a really strong dedication and persistence when it comes to things, that sometimes he gets in trouble for it. He’s adorable, like super adorable.

I also discovered that Bradley James was in this show. Like wow, I loved him as Arthur Pendragon on Merlin. Merlin was probably one of the best shows I’ve ever seen. And he’s in this fricking show and his hair is like this sexy dark brown shade, completely different from his blond style as Arthur. OH MY GOD. I might have screamed and cried a little, and I definitely went crazy on Twitter. Also his character, Lowell Tracy is a musician and he became Liv’s love interest. ALSO DID I MENTION HOW AWESOME THEIR CHEMISTRY IS???

Speaking of blond-turned-brunette, Aly Michalka was also in this show. She stars as Liv’s best friend, Peyton. I love her character. She’s fierce and supportive and a bit sassy. It’s a cool combination!

Clive’s personality, being a police detective, definitely balanced the mixed personalities of the characters. He can be both funny and serious. But what I really like about him is his curiosity and skepticism with Liv having visions.

BUT I guess my ultimate favorite character from the show is Ravi. He’s the first one to know about Liv being a zombie and he didn’t mind it, at all. He’s really funny, cool and adorable. Plus, he’s this cool doctor who wants to create a cure for the zombie virus. He’s like the best friend I’ve never had. I think every single person in the whole entire universe needs a Ravi in their lives. <3

I managed to finish the entire series in two and a half days, give or take. I was definitely hooked! I would take a bullet for this show. Hahaha! I love the concept of the story and the cast is fantastic! 10/10 would recommend!!

  1. Amen to this post! I just have so much love for this show and I’m so sad it’s gonna be such a long wait before season 2! I actually marathoned this too and agree that it’s very addictive. I loved Bradley as Lowell! (That last episode with him broke my heart!) And Major was the freaking bomb in the last ep. And I super adore Ravi and Liv and Clive! Kind of wish we got more of Peyton though. I can go on forever with my thoughts on this show so I’m just gonna stop rambling now!

    1. I would love to listen to your thoughts even if it takes forever. I agree, I need more Peyton in this show because she’s really cool and lovely! And I cried over Lowell tbh.
