The Complete Third Season review by Bobby Blakey
DC Comics continues thier role with their TV shows. While most of them feature some of their mainstay heroes the one show on The CW that stands apart from the rest is that of iZombie. The series was brought to TV from Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas and managed to bring a great fun first two season to the fans. Now Warner Brothers is bringing the third season to DVD with iZombie The Complete Third Season.
In season three, Liv has discovered there are more zombies living in Seattle than she previously believed, including a private military contractor employing a zombie army that is preparing for the day humans learn of their existence. Major finds acceptance in this army, and Liv and Clive investigate the murder of a zombie family that may set off an all-out zombie-human war. Ravi’s former boss at the Center for Disease Control shows up in Seattle to investigate the Max Rager massacre. Blaine finds living as a human with no memory of his evil past is more blessing than curse. Peyton pulls at a thread in one of her cases that may lead to the villain that’s pulling all the strings. This action-packed season will follow Liv, as she takes on the traits of a dominatrix, a JACKASS-style stunt man, an office gossip, a pre-school teacher, a conspiracy theorist, a dungeon master, and more. As with the previous seasons this show continues to move at a brisk pace and while the story is serious they keep the lighthearted overall tone of the show intact. Everyone in the series does a great job. They have done the smart thing and continued to evolve numerous characters in different directions which a lot of shows like to wait a lot longer before doing.
The always fun aspect of seeing the different ways she prepares her brain meal each episode remains one of the highlights each time. They take you out of the overall moment to remind you of what kind of show you are watching without messing with the drama that is happening around it. Each episode keeps the case of the week as the nature of propelling the show forward while the bigger underlying storyline continues to unravel all around these characters making a bigger world exposed. When all of these things are brought together as good as they are here it makes for one of the most fun with zombies you will likely have.
This collection features all 13 episodes of the season as well as deleted scenes and the 2016 Comic Con Panel. Break out the recipe book and cook up some brains before grabbing your copy of iZombie The Complete Third Season when it hits DVD on October 3rd from Warner Bros. Home Entertainment.
