iZombie – Heaven Just Got a Little Bit Smoother
Warning spoilers for Tuesday’s iZombie
I was on pins and needles at the end of Season 2 trying to figure out what did everything mean! Well the season premier ‘Heaven Just Got a Little Bit Smoother’ answered a lot of questions and set up the overall moral quandary not only for Liv (Team Human or Team Zombie) and how her friends (human and zombie) will navigate the reality of what would happen if people learned that we have zombies among us.
On the S3 premier Tuesday Liv and Clive headed to Fillmore Graves HQ. It was the moment when it hit both of them that they were dealing with some major badasses with superhuman powers and the money to make life a lot simpler for assimilation. One of the more touching moments of this episode that will be a more emotional core for Clive is when he sees a cute little boy, Wally that used to live in his apt building. Neither of them had thought about zombie kids and what that would entail (education, living life and eating brains). I think as the season progresses the murder of Wally and his mother Anna will propel Clive to find who killed them and make zombies seem more like individuals. I suspect it might be a conspiracy nut who called into the radio station saying that he had ‘zombie’ neighbors after Liv & Clive weren’t able to stop the security guard from spilling the beans.
Liv and Clive driving to the radio station
I thought it was quite cleaver to take care of the investigation by blowing up the space so that it will burn up most of the bodies and forensic evidence. As well as getting to all of the survivors of the Chaos Killer to have a good cover story absolving Major. Sadly a few witnesses will not stop people from still thinking that Major is guilty and he WAS guilty so …. As Major tries to get back to normal he was reminded that it’s hard to find a job when people think your a serial killer! Luckily he’s a man with a special skill set so he signs on with Fillmore Graves. Hopefully Vivian never learns that HE killed her husband cause she doesn’t seem like a forgiving type of woman! But Major is basically a decent guy which is why he didn’t kill anyone but he still kidnapped people and left the entire city terrorized. His new life is going to have him evaluate what he wants to do next from taking the cure to finding the hooker with a heart of gold or embracing the life of a mercenary and how those decisions will affect his friendships. It wasn’t the life he planned as a teacher!
It’s always good to be rich and as Vivian Still, CEO of Fillmore Graves begins to use her position to set up a Zombie Homeland off Seattle. As they prepare for ‘Discovery Day’, when humans learn about their brain-eating living dead neighbors the plan is to have a self sustaining place for them to live with schools, homes and of course her mercenary business! I can imagine a LOT of people wanting to hire some undead mercenaries <guffaw>. I mean they are mercenaries so how moral can the business or leadership truly be??
Liv is coming off the mercenary brain and is having some major emotional fallout after she had to
Girl you need some bronzer and hair dye!
shoot her zombie boyfriend when he was brain crazy and going to kill Clive (BFF). I think this season is going to be a major upheaval for the entire gang from Peyton, Ravi and Blaine love triangle as she’s torn between a sexy good doctor or a sexy drug dealing kingpin … such a hard choice! Not that Ravi doesn’t have a LOT on his plate with only 19 cures and no way to make more and working on offsetting the memory loss he’s going to be one busy doctor. I’m also thinking his arch-nemesis who fired him might come back to the lab as she tries to figure out WHY the body was in such a advanced state of decay and had brain in the stomach! I’m not sure how Liv & Ravi will explain that but am sure it will be a doozy of jumping through hoops.

So as we all know it’s that time of the year again: San Diego Comic-Con. Warner Bros. Television’s have released official comic con 2016 interactive bags coming in 18 awesome designs for fans to collect their swag in. The bags now feature an interactive component through the Blippar app, which unlocks an augmented reality experience. Ian Somerhalder of the Vampire Diaries displays how to use the app with the bag.
More than 135000 bags will be released to Comic-Con attendees and the designs featured on the bags are inspired from hit shows and upcoming films Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, The 100, Arrow, The Big Bang theory, Blindspot, DC’s Legends of Tomorrow, The Flash, Gotham, iZOMBIE, Suicide Squad, Lucifer, Supergirl, Supernatural, and a combo bag featuring The Originals and The Vampire Diaries.
I want the Vampire Diaries/the Original Bag and hope Cherry will grab me one AND get it signed by the cast <hint hint>
Are you attending San Diego Comic Con 2016? Tell us what bag do you hope to grab and why? What’s your favorite WB TV show? Leave a comment below and post your bag on twitter with #WBSDCC #WBSDCCBag.
As a TVD and Originals superfan I automatically go to the combo bag featuring both shows. I mean who wouldn’t love a bag featuring Ian Somerhalder or Joesph Morgan. The front features a combined image of infamous V and O intermingled. And when you lift the cover on top there is an image of Stefan and Damon Salvatore and on the bottom features an image of the Originals’ squad. The bag showcases the darkness of each show by excluding the bright colors from the bag. All of the bags are aesthetically pleasing especially the Teen Titans Go!, Vixen, and DCS LEGENDS of TOMORROW.
All of the bags have three panels of artwork, designed by Warner Bros. Worldwide Television Marketing. One side of the bag features a velcro-fastened cover flap featuring a classic show-related image that opens to show a unique show-related design and the back of the bag includes the new Comic-Con 2016 design.

“Star Trek is an iconic pop culture phenomena whose storylines pushed gender and racial boundaries. For its 50th anniversary, we celebrate each of Star Trek’s powerful women in a transcending, transformational makeup collection.” – James Gager, M∙A∙C Senior Vice President/Group Creative Director
You know I had to rep my beloved Spock aka Leonard
Nimoy with the announcement of the latest Geek MAC Collection!
I’m so excited that part of the 50th anniversary is new makeup line celebrating Star Trek and the Prime Directive. Any Trekkie worth their salt is salivating over the collection that embraces all Star Trek from the Uhura to Seven of Nine (Borg) and all the beauty in between of all colors. I’m of course talking about the Orion Slave Girl (the green chick) in the original series who popped up in the movie sassy, funny and sexy as hell!
The 25 piece collection includes lipstick, lipglass, pressed pigment eyeshadow and studio nail lacquer that will incorporate the Star Fleet insignia and 50th (time passes so quick with my geek love Star Trek). This exclusive collection will be available September 2016 but if your attending San Diego Comic Con or are in the area they will have an EXCLUSIVE PRESALE M∙A∙C Gaslamp, Thursday, July 21st (while supplies last). This will be one hot collection for makeup and geek fans so it will be beam off the shelf (tee tee a little Star Trek humor) and displayed! I know I’ll be in line to pick up a set and will be on the lookout for my own sexy cosplay Spock guy to test out my new lipglass dressed as Uhura (the original or new movies .. tough choice). Will you buy one set or all 25 pieces? Leave a note below and tell me which one you plan to choose!

I’ve been watching Teen Wolf since it first came on MTV and I was able to interview the cast at a Comic Con. Now I’m a casual fan so I dip my toe in and out of the series so I suppose I’m more of a binger. I’d stopped watching for awhile but saw the cast at the 2015 PaleyFest in Los Angeles and fell in love with the series all over again.
BUT I have a major issue with the ‘flirtation’ between Lydia and Parrish. Now they are both gorgeous people and the relationship has been a slowly building where at first I thought it was a high school girl crush but as season five has progressed it’s been very clear it’s a mutual attraction. Not an unspoken mutual attraction but almost dating now that would be no big deal since the show is a mix of high school students and the adults in their lives (parents, teachers, family friends, etc). I don’t remember in past seasons adults dating the high school characters but maybe I didn’t notice it as I crush pretty hard on Dylan & Tyler <hubbah hubbah>. But this season I find Lydia and Parrish problematic from the long lingering glances to the caresses between a high school senior and a adult man not a year so in age but big enough that in in real life he’d be arrested and likely charged. I know it’s a fantasy series where people are werewolves and have super powers but the fact that it’s treated ‘normally’ with no pushback or repercussions I can’t say how wrong the optics are since people (kids and fans) usually have a difficult time separating reality from TV shows.
