Welcome to the Pre-Squee, a new weekly feature here at the Bookworms and at The Book Swarm. Some books, though they might not be coming out for a few months, need an early squee — we just can’t hold in our excitement about them! And since we also love Movies and TV Series, we occasionally Pre-Squee about these too!

So today we Squee about 

iZombie

“The CW” TV  Series

Premiere: March 17 on the CW (and on Hulu Plus – woot)

What is it about:

“Olivia “Liv” Moore was a rosy-cheeked, disciplined, over-achieving medical resident who had her life path completely mapped out, until the night she attended a party that unexpectedly turned into a zombie feeding frenzy. Afterward, she became part zombie. She works at a coroner‘s office to give her access to the brains she must eat to survive. A side effect of her new diet is the ability to absorb the memories of the deceased, which helps her solve homicides.” Source Wikipedia

Cast

  • Rose McIver as Olivia “Liv” Moore: A former medical student who is now a zombie. She works as a mortician’s assistant to have access to the human flesh and brains she must frequently consume to keep her humanity intact and suppress her hunger.[3]
  • Robert Buckley as Major Lilywhite: Liv’s ex-fiancé[3]
  • Malcolm Goodwin as Clive Babinaux: A local police detective. He knows Liv’s secret and often asks for her help to solve crimes.[4]
  • David Anders as Blaine DeBeers.[3]
  • Rahul Kohli as Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti: A medical examiner and Liv’s boss. He also knows Liv’s secret and assists her whenever he can to protect as well as study her.[4]

Trailer

Why am I excited about it?

  • The Trailer promises a lot of spunk, wit and fun! I really love the humor, if the whole series is like this, it’s going to be fun!
  • Rose McIver – she is so adorable! I loved her already as Tinkerbell in Once Upon A Time (and now it also makes sense that Tink disappeared from UOAT, since Rose is main character in this new show!)
  • Adult – Young Adult Crossover with a paranormal twist! Serious – that is my perfect combination.
  • A Comic Book Adaption from DC Comics – where also The Arrow and The Flash is from! YEAH for Comic Book Adaptations that rock!

Since the premier was yesterday, did anyone of you saw the premiere? How did you like it? And if you haven’t seen it – are you going to watch it? I truly can’t wait to see if I’m going to like it !

  1. Haven’t watch it yet, but will soon. Looks like a fun tv series 🙂 I’m not fan of zombie, but this looks like a series I would love.

  2. Anne

    Meant to watch, but got caught up in a book. Will see if I can watch online. The Chicago Tribune said it had promise, but by episode 4 it had devolved into a Veronica mars type crime show. That might not actually be a bad thing for me.

  3. Christina R.

    It IS AWESOME! Love how she’s got powers and isn’t brain dead – never had a thinking, paranormal detective zombie before and what a cool way of solving crime!

    Lovely post!! 🙂

  4. Chanpreet

    The show sounds amazing. Plus it’s directed by the same guy who gave us Veronica Mars, so I expect great things!

  5. I really enjoyed the premiere. I typically like my zombies to be of the unthinking, murderous variety, but I can get on board with a…umm…BRAINY zombie. I had only seen Rose McIver in The Lovely Bones, and all her character had to do was to look either sad or scared. I was surprised to see how clever and funny she is in iZombie.

    • Me too! I watched it now and I really like the humor!! Rose is cute in this role and it seems like it’s the perfect role for her.

    • Yes yes I did!!!! It’s so much fun and I hope this is hitting off and not again being canceled after one season. I adore Rose she’s a fantastic zombie!!

  6. I watched the Pilot just this evening, and I loved it. Watched it with my Sister and we laughed out loud a lot.
    Sister really liked Liv’s boss – she has a thing for TV characters with British(-ish) accents (like, Enzo from TVD :D).
    But the boss’ level of coolness about the fact that Liv’s a zombie was pretty surprising, if looking at it from reality perspective. I mean, how many people would just totally accept that without the need to get accustomed to the fact.
    It was so much fun, can’t wait for the next episode, even though it’s tomorrow 😀

    • I absolutely love the mixture of crime, humor and paranormal!
      And… I also have a thing for british accents, and you are right, the way he reacted was so cool and exactly what she needed to get back on track:)

      Glad you liked it too :)) I can’t wait for the next episode!
