I am now recapping iZombie for The Nerds of Color! (Making that 3 recaps a week, plus occasional 4ths (there may be a Game of Thrones recap in my future), plus a 5th nostalgia recap I should be doing for another blog but haven’t started yet, plus TV MVPs at the end of the week for Just About Write… Someone will hire me to do this full-time eventually right?)
So far, I’ve been enjoying the show. It reminds me of three other shows:
- Veronica Mars — Clearly this is the strongest and most obvious. Both shows were run by Rob Thomas and Liv’s pale shoulder length locks and her snarkiness are very reminiscent of Veronica Mars’ style.
- Chuck — Liv’s Skill of the Week reminds me of the show Chuck where the lead character downloaded the Intersect 2.0 which gave him new temporary skills as the plot demanded.
- Pushing Daisies — A supernatural detective using skills related to death to find out how someone was murdered? A live man and a dead girl can’t touch for fear of something bad happening? One brown man who knows crime fighter’s secret? Too bad Washington’s dreary rain is the opposite of Couer d’Couers.
- (Also, fake psychic detective? Very Psych.)
