What I’m Watching: iZombie

iZombie: Season 2, Episode 10 “Method Head” (B+)

This episode had the potential to feature the most absurd Liv yet, and I think it actually may have been the tamest, which was not what I expected. It was inevitable that a show about zombies would exist in this zombie-populated universe, and of course a method actor would be the star of the show and take everything way too seriously. It was a lot of fun to see Liv get so into acting, and to so emotionally deliver the lines for one scene before helping to scare a confession out of the killer by pretending to be upset with Clive. What I find myself enjoying most lately are the moments that show Clive demonstrating some weird particularities, like getting excited at every kind of candy that was out on the craft services table on set. I want to see more of the Clive that gets pumped about “Game of Thrones” and shows his nerdy side. On a more dramatic note, we got the important connection that Dale just met Clive’s number one suspect, and Blaine is unknowingly known in the police’s crosshairs, and not because of his yellow lunchboxes. Speaking of zombies, Major passed a very important and crucial test which he was smart enough to use to his advantage, planting a bug on Vaughn and figuring out his own way to take down a man that would nearly condemn a loyal underling to a brutal death just to make sure that the fear in his eyes was real.
