iZombie is one of a handful of CW shows who have carved out a large streaming audience on Netflix and comes from the creators of Veronica Mars. The show centers around Olivia ‘Liv’ Moore (McIver) who attends a boat party and mysteriously gets turned into a zombie.
No, this is not like a zombie show you are expecting as Liv isn’t some undead monster slowly wandering through the streets feasting on brains. Yes, she does need to feast on brains so it’s a perfect fit for her to work at the morgue where she can chow down on the brains of murder victims.
Not only is it a staple of a well-balanced diet for a zombie, but it serves a tangible purpose for her job because she can temporarily see the final moments of the deceased which helps her find the killers.
