CAPE TELEVISION CERTIFIED SPOILER FREE REVIEW™
In this episode, Liv and her boss deal with the big character death that happened in the last episode. Liv does it by going into work and focusing on the job, which in this case is looking into the death of a local reporter who was close to stumbling onto a national story. Amusingly, the reporter was a bit of a drinker, so Liv gets her booze on in this chapter of the meta-story. The mystery is solid and there are some great twists including a hilarious sobriety test.
So far, the big bad of the first season of iZombie has been her condition, as Liv learns about her new place in the world. With this episode, it gets a Big Bad™ in the form of Steven Weber® who is great as the slimy head of the energy drink company* that is at the heart of the season's meta-story.
* Note: it's not made with electrolytes
- The integration of text messages on the show is pretty good.
- The "Ebony and Ivory" joke still resonates with me when Detective Clive and Olivia wander around.
iZombie is on the CW on Tuesdays at 8PM central and on HuluPlus (which is about to drop the "Plus").
