iZombie: Eternal Sunshine of the Caffeinated Mind
"Your lips are moving, but it's the system working!"
Another excellent murder mystery this week, with a coffee shop (how very Seattle), positivity brain and boyfriend who pretends to be French, complete with outrageous accent.
We also have Ravi's attempt at a cure for zombieism not going well, much like his attempt to chat up a girl who, shock horror, doesn't get his Star Wars references. She is, naturally, the killer. All right-minded people know Star Wars.
We end with Blaine being kidnapped by Mr Boss and cronies while singing A Whiter Shade of Pale, having his throat cut and being buried in a shallow grave. It hardly takes a genius to realise that at the end of the episode he will rise as a zombie, but it's an entertaining sequence. As is Liv finding out that "Gilda" was the Rita who was sleeping with Major, punching and evicting get.
This is very good stuff and the finale is getting awfully close...
