This is it. The last one. And who better to talk to than the showrunner himself? Rob Thomas! We talk about the finale, listener questions and also some longrunning theories that I’ve had. Some got shot down, but one actually became CANON! Whaaaaaaaaa! *endzone dance*
Thank you so much for your support. We could not have done this for so long without our listeners.
Veronica Mars spoilerphobes: we talk mainly about iZombie, but the limited Veronica talk we do have doesn’t spoil a thing.
Executive producer Diane Ruggiero-Wright returns to the podcast to talk about the penultimate episode of iZombie, which gives us a heist thriller, some tears, some scares and so many laughs. Diane explains how this episode was originally feature-length in her mind and spills some of the different ideas she had before it was condensed into the great episode it is now!
We welcome John Emmet Tracy, aka Enzo Lambert, about his evolution from the man with the funny accent, to someone not to be underestimated! What drives Enzo? How much was he moved by Brother Love? What drew him to Martin? Is Enzo the Big Bad now and how close are we to figuring out what happens in the end? Your questions are answered as we try our best not to beg him to reveal what happens in the final two episodes!
We’re back to talk “Killer Queen”, which was fun, thrilling, made us feel the feels and also educated us! Liv and Clive investigate the murder of a drag queen, Ravi and Major rescue some kids, and Martin gets wishy-washy about putting his plan in motion. Et tu, Enzo?
Speaking of Enzo, watch this feed for a bonus interview with John Emmet Stacy!
Bob Dearden returns for one last victory lap as we talk about his episode “Night and the Zombie City”! There’s a million podcasts in the iZombie city, but in this epic-length one, we talk about what helped inspire the dialogue, how this is technically a bottle episode, the huge fight, and, of course, how supremely talented Rose McIver is.
We want to thank Bob so much for the many times that he’s talked about iZombie with us and we wish him so much success in his future!
We welcome Carrie Anne Fleming aka Candy Baker, everyone’s favorite trivia genie/cosmetologist/madame, who recently headed out of New Seattle for a new life without Blaine and Don E. Carrie Anne shares many stories from the set as we go through Candy’s journey from the stage of a cop bar to the back of a motorcycle. All from the deck of her sailboat!
The 90s return this week and Liv tries to solve the case of a Drop Dead Gorgeous teenager but is Clueless about her father’s manipulations. Also, Ravi and Peyton are hot on the trail of tainted utopium and the father of all zombie kind. Meanwhile, Dolly sings a song of sixpence at the Seattle Pie-esta.
As we learn more about Liv’s father, we get some questions finally answered with an iZombie flashback or two! Meanwhile, Liv and Ravi compete over raffle tickets, Hi Zombie premieres, Don E falls in love, Martin plots the downfall of humanity and Robin’s theories come true as this season takes the first steps in wrapping up the series. Doesn’t it feel like Season 5 just Blue Bayou?
Happy Father’s Day everyone! Liv finally reunites with her mother this week, and also her long lost father! And surprise! It’s Chromedome! Whaaaaaa?? Also, we have Ravi reffing some twin-fighting, Major ringing that Bell, Clive’s life getting pucked up, silent boyfriends, solid coffee tips and mayonnaise mystery sauce! Brain appetit!
Another top notch Season 5 episode takes the show and puts Blaine and Don E in the driver’s seat for once, and we are here to discuss it. Malcolm Goodwin knocked it out of the park in his iZOMBiE directorial debut, as the episode focused more on Blaine’s hustle and Don E’s angst and less about the case of the week. Plus, we theorize about such dangling threads such as Beanpole Bob and the Girl with the 8-Ball Tattoo…
Bob Dearden, the righteous dude that wrote this week’s episode, drops by the podcast to earn the pants that come with his Five-Timers jacket. We talk about the plight of Cameron Frye, the clock running out on Blaine, Enzo’s motives, homages to episodes past and even an Easter egg that Bob didn’t know about! He also says for the record that a) Clive actually is Batman and b) that’s not the regenerated corpse of Vaughn DuClark at the end of the episode! The question isn’t what are we going to talk about. The question is what aren’t we going to talk about.
We are so happy to welcome executive producer and writer of “Five, Six, Seven, Ate!” Diane Ruggiero-Wright to the podcast! We talk about what inspired her to create the co-dependent dancer brain, as well as rave about Viet Nguyen’s direction and the talents of her amazing cast. Plus, we talk new headcanon, the most perfect moment of this episode, women supporting women, what batucadas is/are, and Robin learns how dance competitions work. Also, we may have gotten a pretty great spoiler out of her…
No empty calories in this podcast! Join us as we discuss cold war between the CHICS and the Seattle Justice League as we lose a couple of friends along the way. Meanwhile, there’s kegels, trout butter, and corn syrup to keep us entertained and there’s going to be a Zombie sitcom?? Sign us up!
We’re back! Liv isn’t seeing visions this week, but Ravi is ready to hand out some beatings! A case without a body has us suspicious, as we reassess the new roles of our main characters in New Seattle.
I welcome Aaron Craven to the podcast to talk about his role in Season 5, CDC Dr Saxon. We talk a bit about what it was like filming in the final season of our favorite show, and I get schooled on the location of the CDC! We discuss Saxon’s first name, hint at what’s ahead and also chat about the many shows and movies he’s been a part of! Oh there are tangents…
Crybaby Carl is here! Nemo Cartwright chats about his tough henchman character, working with David Anders and Bryce Hodgson, Carl’s glandular problem, some classic Crybaby moments from Season 4, and of course, the literal face-off with Thumbbreaker Ravi!
iZombie writer Bob Dearden returns to pick up his gold jacket, resolve some lingering questions from Season 4 and help us properly tease THE FINAL SEASON! But first, Robin tells Steph about some semi-spoilery news items he’s been reading online…
Season 5 premieres May 2nd at 8PM! Make sure to watch it live, and tell your friends to watch. If you tweet, set out a couple tweets while you watch and hashtag it “#iZOMBiE”!
