TV Review: iZombie (Season 4 Episode 2)
Share This Article:
After last week's impressive season premiere, iZombie's second outing this season falls a little flatter; the novelty of New Seattle is starting to wear off a little, and while some things have changed, fundamentally, it's back to business as usual for all of our characters. After the novelty of seeing the new world of Seattle following the zombie takeover at the end of last season, it's back to business as usual this week, with another case of the week for Liv and Clive and whilst I do enjoy the ridiculous crimes that face our intrepid team on iZombie, it feels like the show is avoiding some of the tougher questions that come both from its general premise and from the new situations our characters find themselves in. For instance, Liv. Whilst I adore Rose McIver and getting to see her try on all this different personas each week depending on which brain she has consumed (and this week's one is quite the doozy, Rose McIver is at her acting best, playing a stuffy socialite, who is murdered by a golf ball to the brain), we are four seasons in, and I still don't feel like I know LIV as a person very well. We know all her different personas, but we never really get to see the person (well, zombie) behind the brains.
