TV Review: iZombie S1E11 Astroburger

normal_izombietv_s01promo_001-1~0A person close to Major dies of an apparent suicide; a secret computer file comes to light.

iZombie continues to head towards its season finale, still focused on the greater overarching story. This episode focuses on two things really, a video of what happened on the lake, and Major returning to life out of the loony bin.

The former is interesting as it builds on the ongoing mythos, and at the same time has a murder of the week spin to it all. The murder is solved rather quickly, and the search for the video creates some fantastic comedic moments. There’s some seriously funny stuff here, and with a character we’ve seen in an earlier episode, but hasn’t played much of a role. There’s a twist there much later in the episode that’s absolutely fantastic! Well played iZombie!

Then there’s Major…. he’s out of the loony bin and figuring out what to do next. That leads to his relationship with Liv, and a hell of a twist when it comes to that.

The episode really plays well with what’s real, and what’s not using the brain of the victim to create an episode that’s absolutely one of the best of the season. An absolutely fantastic episode all around!

Overall Rating: 9.5
