I have long been a fan of Rob Thomas (Veronica Mars anyone?) and my dream job (other than what I do now) would be to collaborate with him on a project. (Or, Rob Thomas and Joss Whedon.) Other than the fact that I’m not funny (really — I’m not. I don’t write humor. But I can do the suspense and story really well and have someone else write the humor.) I loved the ComicCon iZombie panel that featured not only the actors, but Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright, his co–creator for the show. These are people who think like I do! LOL. Writers are certainly a strange lot.
Anyway, my kids will probably kill me, but I watched iZombie without them (yet will have no problem watching it again.)
Last month, I wrote an article for Heroes & Heartbreakers about why iZombie is the perfect show to watch for those who love BONES. I won’t go into details here (but you can read the article!), but to summarize iZombie has dark humor, great characters, and is at its core a police procedural/ensemble buddy show. Just like Bones.
But what I didn’t write about was the quality of the storytelling–and why iZombie is arguably the most underrated show on television today.
