I don’t know what changed, but after the last two episodes, iZombie seems to have lost some of its shine.
The news of extra episodes ordered hasn’t helped the feeling of treading water that this saggy season middle has been stinking of. And with the Max Rager/actual zombie stuff taking a back seat to the COWs, I’m simply not that interested right now.
Pick it up, guys. You’re Veronica Mars’ successor. You’re capable.
I think I should just start off by saying that the above image is not capturing a hangover. Because nobody gets sufficiently drunk this episode, which seems like a real missed opportunity. Because the Parks and Recreation characters are perfection when they’re binge drinking.
Nevertheless, we still get a good combo of penis hats, pretentious hipster bars, another political guest star (Newt Gingrich. Because somebody at NBC thought that’d be cute?) and some more progress on Lot 48.
Oh, and penis gummies.
Parks and Recreation is back to what it does best: plot lines about Leslie trying to get a park built.
We are home.
