What I’m Watching: iZombie

iZombie: Season 3, Episode 11 “Conspiracy Weary” (B+)

Well, that whole situation resolved itself pretty quickly with Don E being held captive and Ravi nearly being executed thanks to the raving brute force displayed by the amped-up duo of Blaine and Liv. The helpful assist from Fillmore Graves was a little late and permitted the escape of two hostiles who did their own form of damage later, but at least the zombies got out okay. There have been a couple of times that we’ve seen Liv and Major eating the same brains, but this was the first time that a very, very hungry trio, consisting of Liv, Blaine, and Don E, went nuts on the brains of a conspiracy theorist, causing them to have some pretty hilarious conversations about some urban myths and unsolved mysteries. Major, on the other hand, wasn’t nearly paranoid enough, dating someone who publicized their entire private relationship, sex forts all over the house and all, and even created “Killer Abs” t-shirts that made Major the victim of a whole lot of mockery. I think her enthusiasm is relatively innocent and misplaced, if still more than a bit strange, unlike the kind ear of Ravi’s new friend Rachel, who turns out to be a journalist that put Liv’s zombie face on the front cover of the paper. Seattle may have just elected a zombie that happens to be a murderer as its new mayor, but the fact that zombies have just been somewhat incontrovertibly outed well ahead of schedule is cause for grave (pardon the pun) concern.
