Interesting, smart and frivolous, those are the 3 most accurate words I can think to describe the first episode. Liv Moore, the main character portrayed by Rose McIver who is as suited to the role as one can be, encapsulates perfectly all of the main features of the show and then some. It’s a bit too early to make a call on the supporting cast, but one thing’s for sure, nobody and nothing looks out of place.
Whilst the premise of the show is quiet silly and most definitely not what you would call a quality TV series, it seems as if it’s capable to still be quiet interesting and provide solid entertainment for however long it may last. It combines two of the most common narratives in film and TV industry, Zombies and police procedural, putting its own spin on the numerous cliches and making it promising and exciting to see where the creators choose to take this.
From the first episode it looks like it’s not horror nor drama, it is very much a crime satire with touches of drama. Check it out if you are looking for something lighthearted to get you through the week. It is bound to become a guilty pleasure for many and I am sure the hardcore fans won’t take long to make an appearance, and who knows it might even get better, after all this was just a first taste of what the show is about.
