    New? The second season is showing now.

    And it is obviously plagiarized from TRU CALLING, the coroner even casts someone who looks like Zach G.

    Yeah but the show’s actually pretty good, and that zombie girl is crazy hot.

    It’s from the CW, not Netflix, but the first season is now on Netflix.

    It’s a better show than a lot of what’s out there. It was adapted for TV by Rob Thomas, who also did Veronica Mars — a great, far superior, show, from a comic book series that I wasn’t really keen on.

  • This show is GREAT. It’s based on a comic series from a number of years ago, but it’s a lot smarter and less annoying. Rose McIver, who plays the lead, is brilliant; her character could so easily be snarky and cynical and obnoxious, but she’s instead thoughtful and sad and earnest. There are great characters, wonderful depictions of friendship, and heartbreaking family dynamics.

    Seriously, I can’t recommend this show enough.

      My husband and I have just watched the pilot, but we enjoyed that. It’s a different take on the usual zombie, which I like.

      • That’s why I like it, too. Most zombie stories are dystopian and very grim; I get enough misery from life, I want fiction that’s fun!

  • Our entire prime-time television culture is built around doctors and solving crimes, isn’t it?

    There are so very many other kinds of stories to tell. I wonder why we’re so stuck on these.

      “Our entire prime-time television culture is built around doctors and solving crimes, isn’t it?”

      … and zombies. Don’t forget zombies.

    On a more spiritual note: the main character starts out withdrawn, unmotivated, and unconnected with those around her because she was…well… undead, a monster. As she discovers that she can really help others, she “comes back to life” as it were (still a zombie but), interacting with people, caring about them. It is in giving of herself, in serving others that she finds new life. It is this concern for others that makes her more human than the antagonist zombie that kills for profit or the other zombies that don’t care enough to think about where their “food” comes from. She finds herself, her humanity, precisely in her service of others.

      Didn’t Charles Dickens cover this adequately in “A Christmas Carol”?

    I would honestly much rather watch a TV show about a zombie medical student who solves crimes than I would yet another show about doctors, lawyers, cops, or inept FBI agents.
