We’ve been keeping you readers informed on some of the latest tours that will be heading our way in the coming months but now its time to give something back to the homebodies that are among us and share that the fourth season premiere for The CW Network’s “iZombie” is airing tonight. The series follows the adventures of your friendly neighborhood zombie Liv Moore and you should check your local listings for the times so you don’t miss it. I’ve followed the brand new poster with some show premise and main cast. Take a look.
The Premise: Seattle medical resident Olivia “Liv” Moore is turned into a zombie while attending a boat party. She abandons her career and breaks up with her fiancé, much to the disappointment and puzzlement of her family. She discovers that if she does not periodically satisfy her new appetite for brains, she starts turning into a stereotypical zombie, stupid and homicidal. Instead of feeding by killing innocent people, Liv decides to take a job at the King County morgue and eat the brains of the corpses she autopsies. Her secret is guessed by her boss, Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti. Ravi soon becomes Liv’s friend and confidant, and as a scientist, he is intrigued by her condition. Liv finds out that whenever she eats a dead person’s brain, she temporarily inherits some of their personality traits and experiences flashbacks of their life. Those visions are generally triggered by sights (events or objects) or sounds (repeated sentences). In the case of murder victims, the flashbacks offer clues about their killers. Liv decides to use this new ability to help Police Detective Clive Babineaux solve the crimes, passing herself off as a psychic, Meanwhile, Ravi works to develop a cure for Liv’s affliction, in the hope that one day she will be able to resume her former life.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: For the longest time I’ve said how I never read the original comic series that this show comes from but since that last season ended, I managed to peruse a few issues that were in my local retailers back issue bins. It’s very different from the show, and folks who are watching “Lucifer” will find that its done in that same fashion. Mostly using the character as inspiration for a unique storyline. I’ve been with this once since the beginning and do enjoy it. As I’ve said before, the zombies on this show are unlike the ones in the apocalyptic films and while there is some violence, its not over the top gory. This is network television after all. So be sure to check the listings and program your DVR if you need to be out of the house when it airs later. I don’t tend to do episode recaps here on the website but if something special happens perhaps I will begin that line of posting as well. Are you a fan? Are you excited about the return of the show? Chime in down below. See you next time.
