TV Review: iZombie S2E12 Physician, Heal Thy Selfie
Babineaux and Liv investigate a triple homicide in which the victims’ heads are missing. A ravenous Liv is forced to eat the brain of a social media-hungry soul who was recently run over by a bus. Meanwhile, Peyton leans on Ravi for support.
iZombie is an ok episode and a pivot from previous ones in that the show isn’t centered around Liv and her personality. In this one, it’s a random brain which has Liv texting and Tweeting, and do kids really talk like that? Really the point of this episode is all about Mr. Boss, the serial killer, and Max Rager.
This is an episode that I’d call the bridge whose goal is to move the bigger plot along. These types of episodes tend to be not as good as other episodes, and this one falls squarely in that.
It does what it needs to do moving various parts along, but there’s nothing memorable about the episode if that makes sense. There’s no really funny moments, though Ravi comes closest when it comes to that. Liv’s new personality isn’t super interesting. And everything else is just, ok.
It’s not a bad episode, don’t get me wrong, it’s just missing the fun quirky sense the series usually has. But, it does it’s job, and that’s quickly move the various plot points along.
