Review by Jim Bennett
Well, what can I say about this week’s episode? Well, I guess we should start with the fact that I absolutely loved it. It was everything iZombie has been through all 5 seasons; funny, but with tons of heart.
Now there are a few storylines running through the ep, but the main one was the absolute best. After a murder at a dance studio what better way to track the killer than Liv eating the brains of a dancer to go undercover, but she needs a partner... oh Ravi, you absolute legend you.
Few things make me happier than a montage in a show, and having one of Ravi learning to dance tops them all. He, Liv and Clive all dancing together makes the episode, you can only imagine the fun that was had on set that day!
Learning to dance while solving a murder shouldn’t work, it just shouldn’t... but it does, and it works on so many levels. Also, we must take a moment to appreciate Ravi’s dance outfit at the end, the man is on fire!
This episode was fun. It hearkened back to earlier seasons, but also added some twists, with Clive and a certain ex-girlfriend, as well as all the continuing zombie/human issues. Overall it was just super fun.
This cast bring the heart to this show and you can see how much they love it. I’ll miss it when it’s gone, that’s for sure, but for now I’m just going to enjoy each and every episode.
P.s the puns in this weeks episode are superb, from the main title to all the mini chapters, just superb.
