iZombie Postmortem: Episode 9

iZombie Ep. 9: Patriot Brains

I like that there’s more of a focus on the zombie story-line in recent episodes. Very big developments happen by the end of episode 9. That’s the problem I have with procedural shows sometimes, character/story progression gets stuck and becomes too predictable. Thankfully, that’s not the case with iZombie.

The paintball battle setting for this episode’s crime scene was a nice, little homage to the original comics.


I guess that Dr. Ravi is OK after getting bit/scratched by the zombie rat, or is he? Maybe, that will be a slower developing version of the zombie strain?? I kind of hope not; I’m not too keen on the idea of a zombie-Ravi.

Also, it was nice to see Percy Daggs III AKA Wallace from Veronica Mars, although I didn’t find his character as interesting as Ryan Hansen’s(AKA  Dick Casablancas) from episode 5.

All in all, it was another great episode and it seems that the main zombie story-line is really coming to a head for the end of the season!

5/5 brains!
