izombie: pilot

CW’s adaptation of the Vertigo graphic novel.

Olivia Moore (Rose McIver) was living her dream of becoming a doctor when she attended a party which was broken up by zombies. She escaped with a gash on her arm which caused her to become a zombie. She breaks off her relationship with fiance Major Lilywhite (Robert Buckley) and leaves her residency to work as a coroner’s assistant. She uses her zombie skills to solve murders by eating the brains of the victims.

Absolutely loved this! I’m not familiar with the graphic novel (I bought a copy though) so I can’t say if it’s a good adaptation but I loved how the credits are illustrated. I’m not a big zombie fan but I like how this is a different tale for zombies. It helps that McIver is fantastic. There are some similarities to Veronica Mars (also created by Rob Thomas) but it has its own voice and I’m so excited to watch it each week.
