Everyone was right. This is a fun show and I like Olyphant, I just wished Barrymore was not in it.

The one thing that's taking me out of this show, and I know it's probably a little nitpicky, is the constant pronunciation of the word "realtor" as ree-luh-ter. Re-uh-ly?

Maybe it's a regional thing but I've never heard it pronounced any other way.

Andy Richter's character (the realtor boss) pronounced it correctly. The only people I heard mispronouncing it were the actual realtors.

I'm on episode three of this and liking it a lot so far. Don't really get the Izombie comparisons. Drew is a bad actresses though. When I was watching it I kept thinking that I don't remember her being this bad before also realizing the only movies with her I've seen are Scream and ET.

Only made it through ep 1. No real urge to keep going. I may watch the rest one day.

just started watching... I like it, but damn, Barrymore is a terrible, terrible, terrible actress. Plus, she's an absolute uggo.

I love Olyphant in everything he's done, even this show, but I gave up after 3 episodes - it was just boring and dumb, and not even Olyphant could save it.

I finally got around to watching this after someone recommended it to me. I knew it was created by Victor Fresco, who also did Better Off Ted which I loved. I went in knowing nothing about the premise so was pleasantly surprised that it was a dark comedy with horror elements. I enjoyed it and binged the last 6 episodes last night which is not something I do very often.

Funny thing is the last show I watched before this was Wet Hot American Summer: 10 Years Later, which had the nerdy neighboor boy, but in Wet Hot he was the coolest kid in camp

I know I started this thing, but can't remember if I finished it. Barrymore is the weakest link here, easily. Once I succumbed to the notion that they were going over the top deliberately, I enjoyed it more.

I've always loved Timothy Olyphant but I just couldn't get into this show. I think I watched about 3 episodes and gave up. Also didn't care much for Izombie.....

^Yeah, I did the same thing. Also like Timothy, as well as Drew. It just didn't do it, for me.

Joel (Timothy Olyphant) and Sheila (Drew Barrymore) are husband and wife realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby, until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction...but in a good way. Santa Clarita Diet stars Drew Barrymore as Sheila Hammond, Timothy Olyphant as Joel Hammond, Liv Hewson as Abby Hammond and Skyler Gisondo as Eric Bemis. Showrunner Victor Fresco, Drew Barrymore, Timothy Olyphant, Aaron Kaplan, Tracy Katsky, Chris Miller and Ember Truesdell are executive producers on the series. Nancy Juvonen is a producer. Santa Clarita Diet is a Netflix production.

You’ll like S2 Episode 2.

I know people complain about Barrymore, but I love this show. So absurd, and I'm loving the guest stars in S2.

Olyphant was on fire in S2.

I watched season 2 over the past couple of days and I liked it much more than season 1. Gary was hilarious and I also liked Ramona and wish she in more episodes. She reminded me of a bit of April Ludgate from Parks and Rec.

I thought S1 was decent, but I really enjoyed S2. The writing seemed much sharper and wittier.

Barrymore was passable and Olyphant was good, but I really liked the "kids" (Abby and Eric). Their delivery and timing were great and made the show more fun.

Looking forward to S3.
