I’m a zombie lover. I get at least one zombie themed gift for Christmas every single year and I’ll excitedly profess my love for the squishy, oozing little creatures to anyone who looks like they might even care a little bit. Let me tell you, looks can be deceiving.
I binge watched the first season of Santa Clarita Diet on Netflix. I watched it by myself because my husband is a little bitch about anything “horror.” I found the show to be more funny than gory, but he wouldn’t be swayed into giving it a shot. I may have ruined my chances of convincing him to give shows like this a chance when I told him that Insidious was an “action/adventure” and he watched it with me.
Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant are a perfect fit as a couple and are amazingly hilarious. Drew is a sweet, sassy, scrappy, kickass flesh-eating machine, the likes of which I’ve never seen before (and I’ve watched hundreds of zombie movies and shows.) Timothy is one yummy mofo, as per usual.
The whole cast works well together and I laughed out loud every single episode. I re-watched the first season before I could even begin season 2 because it had taken them forever to get their collective ass in gear and put out the next batch of bloody goodness. I’m so glad that I did because there were so many little jokes or facial expressions that I missed while watching it the first time.
Season 2 was even better than the first, in my opinion. I had to watch the first episode about 5 times before I could move on. It was just that great. If you like a lot of humor and blood, just give Santa Clarita Diet a try. You won’t regret it!
