The CW network has ordered a season of Zombie telling the story of a med student-turned-zombie takes a job in the coroner’s office to gain access to the brains she must reluctantly eat to maintain her humanity, but with each brain she consumes, she inherits the corpse’s memories. With the help of her medical examiner boss and a police detective, she solves homicide cases in order to quiet the disturbing voices in her head. Based on the characters created by Chris Roberson and Michael Allred, and published by DC Comics’ Vertigo imprint. Cast: Rose McIver (Liv).

Zombie will air on CW in 2014.

With an absence of anything else on recently, we've been catching back episodes of this one...it seems interesting enough. Need to try and find it from the beginning, though.

Finally caught up with all the episodes (they were tricky to find in our 'on demand' area via the DVR). I'm enjoying it myself...even though I'm sure there are a lot of folks who probably cringe at the way they're manipulating 'zombie lore' in the ways they do.

Also, the actress that plays the lead character does quite well in her role...I can't imagine going in and adjusting your character's personality traits (one of the side effects of eating the brains of victims) during each episode.

I also thought it was odd, unless it was just something special with our OnDemand service, that we had to watch Episode 9 before Episode 8. Started to watch 8 first, and the "previously on" was showing us all sorts of things that we hadn't seen on any of the previous shows...

Also, did not see the end of 8 coming...very shock-worthy.

Just caught the season 1 finale...wowsers, they packed a lot of stuff in there, with quite a bit to bring us over into next season.

I'll have to try & watch it this Summer. I wasn't sure if I'd be in the target audience for it based on the commercials but from Mr. @astonwest posts it sounds like I should at least check it out. :D

My wife and I both really enjoyed this first season. There are a few episodes where it gets a little campy, but overall, they have some interesting story arcs (which sometimes don't pop back up for several episodes) and plot twists that you wouldn't normally expect.

Seems like they've decided to go soap-opera-y with this show over the past several episodes. I do like the conflict they've set up between Major's new job opportunities and Liv's condition. But I swear those two break up and hook up more than high school teenagers...

Also, it seems like they may be trying to cut costs, since it seems like Liv tends not to go into "rage" mode as often, and thus using less CGI.

Just caught the season (2?) finale. Again, they packed a lot of action and plot into a 2-hour episode. Not only did they seem to go all Game of Thrones, but they also let the cat out of the bag, so to speak, with a broader group of folks. I enjoyed it all, and can't wait for (hopefully) another season.
