Watching episode 8 right now....so far so good. It is a fairly fast binge what with each episode being less than 30 minutes long.

Finished it last night and I look forward to season 2.

This show is fucking hilarious. It's awesome seeing Timothy Olyphant in a completely comedic role. Hopefully it gets picked up for another season.

Yeah, I binged the whole thing yesterday. It's more comedy than horror but that was pretty apparent from the trailer. I really like the characters. Nice cameos. Good twists. Now I have to wait for S2.

Watched the first 3 episodes last night. Enjoyed it so far.

Since I live here in Santa Clarita there's been a big buzz about this for the last year or so. Looking forward to watching the rest.

I love that Netflix gives me a steady diet of 4K content for my new TV. This even has Dolby Vision.

Not sure what to make of this so far up to ep 2. I wasn't really expecting the comedy to be so broad.

I liked this show when it was called IZombie.

It's a cross between Suburgatory and iZombie - both of which I think are far better. This was ok, but I don't think I'll be back for another season.

I enjoyed it and would keep watching it if it keeps going

Loved it - great seeing Olyphant having fun and just killing it with his comedic chops. He's easily the best part of the show for me. It is broad and silly but I laughed A LOT. Watched it all in the last two days - thought it was 13 eps though so when episode 10 was over and there weren't any more, I was pissed. Definitely want a second season.

I laughed so hard at the "You're a pussy. I once saw you chase an ice cream truck" line.

About halfway through this one. I'm definitely gonna finish the season but I think I'd describe it as very enjoyable/ fun but instantly forgettable. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing.

The house is about 4 blocks away. I'll drive by tomorrow and see if Drew is outside gardening or something.

I wasn't planning on watching this right away, but I watched the 1st 2 episodes tonight.

Wow, this was a surprisingly very gory dark comedy. Timothy Olyphant was hilarious.

Drew eating Nathan Fillion alive did make me squirm. :lol: That was a really gory scene. This is definitely an adult comedy.

Olyphant owns this show

Barrymore is so bad at acting

Watched first 2 episodes. Love it.

I was a little afraid that the gore would turn off the wife, but surprisingly she loved the show

I thought Barrymore was fine on here, though I know some people hate her valley girl-ish line delivery.

We binge watched it over the weekend. It was OK. It could easily be a network show.

Some critics are not too fond of the show, but it worked for me.

I do not know if she has a bad complexion or something but she has so much makeup it was very distracting.

Did enjoy the show, will watch S2 and more.

I too have watched the first two episodes, and I really like it. I've never seen iZombie, so I can't comment on how much they might have in common. Olyphant is awesome though. He does the comedy really well.

So I just started on this tonight. I hadnt read anything about the show in advance, but I like Olyphant so I thought I'd give it a go.

What a surprise I had once it got going :lol:

Good stuff so far!

Olyphant owns everything he's in.... and for that reason, I give everything he does a watch... but not this. This looks awful.. plus, Barrymore - can't stand her.

This was great. Loved it

I blew through the 10 episodes. I enjoyed it - although it feels like it's been done many many times before.

Olyphant was good, but Barrymore's role should've been casted better. She has little variation in her acting - she has the same characteristics in every movie/show... which is probably her playing herself.

I really liked the daughter. The neighbor boy was great as well. I enjoyed watching their scenes more than the parents.
