The new series on CW iZombie started on Tuesday, March 17th. This series is about Olivia “Liv” Moore (Rose McIver) and her transformation from a human medical student to a brain-eating zombie. In this show, Olivia fulfills her brain needs after the transformation at the morgue. There, she discovers that she can use her brain-eating habits for good not evil.

After Olivia is a zombie for a day, she breaks off her engagement and quits her job at the hospital to protect the patients and her now ex-fiance, Major (Robert Buckley). After doing this, she finds herself with a job at the morgue where she can feed on the dead instead of the living. But the first time Olivia eats someone’s brain, she starts to get visions of the person’s life and their personality, which Olivia uses to help a cop find the murderer.

Now, although eating brains of the dead helps Liv see what happened to them, she also finds a reason whether it be personal or not, to hunt the killer down. For example in the very first episode a girl was thrown off a ledge because this guy thought she had stolen his wedding ring since she has kleptomania so he takes his anger out on her. After Liv sees the poor girl get thrown off the ledge in a vision, she takes it to heart since she was just an innocent girl whose life was technically ended after finally breaking out of her comfort zone, just like how the victim was an innocent girl with a disorder that ended up being the reason she lost her life.

This show will air every Tuesday on CW and I have to say I can’t wait to watch the future episodes cause it’s a change from the normal zombie shows or movies that portray zombies just as dead corpses that just eat human flesh.
