TWO AND A HALF MENAt the end of season three, Charlie and Alan were headed away from bachelor life. Charlie and girlfriend Mia were getting close to tying the knot. However, when it became clear that Charlie would have to give up Alan and Jake for marriage, he picked family. Despite the fact Alan married his young, ditzy girlfriend Kandi, won five hundred thousand dollars, and bought a condo. Four months later, season four begins and life quickly gets back to normal. Kandi kicks Alan out and files for divorce. He is broke and goes back to Charlie. Since losing Mia, Charlie spent his time partying, boozing, and chasing women. Now, Charlie, Alan, and Jake get reacquainted and there are some solid laughs.MV5BOTY3ODQ2MDUxNV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwNjE3Nzg3MjE@._V1_After the guys settle back into bachelor life, there are a couple major season developments. The first development is Alan’s divorce. The early season episodes deal with his financial situation getting worse and worse. Alan loses his condo, his dog, his pride, and pays two alimonies after Judith gives Kandi her divorce lawyer. The flipside to this story is Judith and Herb’s relationship. They get engaged and Alan and Charlie do everything they can to get them hitched. Alan’s romantic life is also a big development. Some of his love interests include Berta’s daughter Naomi and guest stars Brooke Shields and Allison Janney.MV5BMTY5NTA5MzMyMV5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMzExNDc3MjE@._V1_Life for Charlie is busy as usual. He spends most of his time chasing after women, drinking, and working very little. “Apologies For the Frivolity” is a fantastic episode. Charlie dates a woman who has uncanny similarities to Evelyn. Everyone sees it but Charlie. In the episodes “Smooth As A Ken Doll” and “Aunt Myra Doesn’t Pee A Lot”, Charlie and Herb’s sister Myra hit it off. As the relationship gets intimate, Alan fears how it will affect Judith and Herb. Charlie worries because he thinks he has true feelings for Myra. Everyone is in for a surprise in this highly comical, yet ironic storyline. “Tucked, Taped and Gorgeous” is another solid episode, where Charlie’s sexuality comes into question, as does Alan’s. Charlie has many other fun interludes, but these ones are among the best.MV5BMTg2NzQxNzUzMl5BMl5BanBnXkFtZTgwMDMyNDg3MjE@._V1_As for Evelyn, there are a couple great episodes involving her and her overzealous sons. In “The Sea Is a Harsh Mistress”, Charlie goes surfing with a beautiful beach babe. The catch is that he does not know how to surf. He gets in an accident, which leaves him with a slight concussion. Just as Charlie’s life flashed before his eyes, he saw his father, who told him to take care of mother. Charlie teams with Alan to treat their mother better. “I Merely Slept With a Commie” is another fun episode with Evelyn. She makes Charlie and Alan jealous by getting a new family. Overall, season four continues the enjoyable and hilarious comedy found in past seasons.

Will Seattle become the capital of the zombie homeland? In season three, Liv has discovered there are more zombies living in Seattle than she previously believed, including a private military contractor employing a zombie army that is preparing for the day humans learn of their existence. Major finds acceptance in this army, and Liv and Clive investigate the murder of a zombie family that may set off an all-out zombie-human war. Ravi’s former boss at the Center for Disease Control shows up in Seattle to investigate the Max Rager massacre. Blaine finds living as a human with no memory of his evil past is more blessing than curse. Peyton pulls at a thread in one of her cases that may lead to the villain that’s pulling all the strings. This action-packed season will see Liv take on the traits of a dominatrix, a Jackass style stunt man, an office gossip, a pre-school teacher, a conspiracy theorist, a dungeon master, and more.

Ravi tells Liv that he is upset about Blaine and Peyton’s growing attraction to each other. Ravi shows Clive the experiments he’s been conducting to restore memory loss, a side-effect of the zombie cure.

Later, when Peyton confronts him, Ravi finally admits his feelings for her, which causes catastrophic results.3.4) Wag the Tongue Slowly

Meanwhile, Major finally finds Natalie and gives her Ravi’s cure.3.5) Spanking The Zombie

Fillmore-Graves mercenaries fight overseas and end a hostage situation. During the battle, Major receives numerous stab wounds. His condition begins to deteriorate as his wounds fail to heal. Meanwhile, Liv eats the brain of a dominatrix named Roxanne Greer who was strangled in her dungeon by her own whip. Although she was cremated, Ravi kept her brain to test his memory loss cure on. After investigating the crime scene, Liv and Clive find that Greer taped all her sessions, but the memory card is missing. They suspect that the killer could be anyone from her client list, which includes D.A. Baracus, Johnny Frost, and Brent Stone. Later, Liv and Clive find that the killer is the victim’s neighbor, who used the tapes to blackmail her clients. Don E. has trouble finding employees for the Scratching Post. He later meets up with Blaine’s old buyer of utopium and offers him a job in exchange for supplying him with more. Later, Ravi is ready to cure Major, but Liv stops him, knowing that Major would die from his stab wounds if turned human. She buys them more time and, the next morning, Major takes the cure despite the risk of memory loss.3.6) Some Like It Hot Mess

Major begins to regain his humanity after taking the cure, but both Liv and Ravi fear what will happen if he loses his memories for good. Clive investigates the murder of a narcissistic DJ, and when Liv eats her brain, she begins to act out and behave irresponsibly. One of Don E.’s clients offers him $1 million for Ravi’s cure, but the latter refuses to sell it. However, Don E.’s suggestion that Blaine is merely faking his memory loss to get a fresh start intrigues Ravi, and he mentions it to Peyton. Later, Blaine admits that, while he did initially lose his memory, it returned in a couple of days, and he pretended otherwise in a bid to win Peyton’s affections. Major returns to his family just as his memories fade, but they soon come back. Clive deduces that the victim’s roommate is the murderer, and is surprised to learn that Liv intends to take the cure herself and become human. However, someone steals Ravi’s supplies from the morgue. When Major returns, he reveals that he did have one last syringe that Ravi gave him earlier, but had already given it to Natalie.3.7) Dirt Nap Time

Clive is shocked to find that Liv is still a zombie; nevertheless, he has her eat the brain of a murdered preschool teacher who engaged in multiple affairs with his students’ mothers. Meanwhile, Peyton agrees to help the public defender representing the suspect from the dominatrix murder convince his client to take a plea deal.

Clive and Liv are able to locate a private investigator hired by the husband of one of the victim’s partners, learning that the husband is the real killer. Don E. informs Blaine that he is buying out his business with the help of Blaine’s assistant, Candy; one of his men then shoots and severely wounds Blaine on his father’s orders.

Major voluntarily becomes a zombie again so as to rejoin Fillmore-Graves, while Justin learns of Liv’s affair with Chase and breaks up with her.

Learning Carey also murdered Wally Reid and Vivian, forced James Weckler to kill Roxanne Greer to aid Baracus’ campaign, and introduced a deadly disease into the public, Chase kills her, but her plan has enough support among Fillmore-Graves’ staff that Chase is forced to proceed with it, using vaccinations against the disease to turn humans into zombies, including Dale Bozzio and Johnny Frost. Liv persuades Johnny to reveal zombies’ existence to the public, after which Fillmore-Graves help maintain order between humans and zombies. Ravi develops a potential vaccine for the zombie virus and ingests it, persuading Liv to scratch him to test its effectiveness.

At The climax of Izombie the series will never be the same again, thankfully with the show renewed for a fourth season, we will see more adventures. Season 3 had a lot of interesting character moments especially for Clive who has a season long investigation into the murder of a family of Zombies. The Show went from strength to strength throughout the season and leaves you hanging for more. with the world in the know about Zombies it will very interesting what will happen for season 4. We are in for a hell of a ride.

Consistently offering clever, witty and fun episodes, iZombie solidified itself as one of the most entertaining series on TV in its second season. Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright had already created an offbeat yet inviting world in Season 1 and in Season 2 they built upon it, putting the characters into more intense and involving situations, all while still maintaining the show’s crucial, knowing sense of humor.The cast continue to be one of the most likeable you’ll find, anchored by the excellent Rose McIver. Okay, it’s one of the show’s reaches that pretty much every brain Liv eats is a very focused, specific type of person, but that’s just part of the deal here. And it gives McIver so much to work with, as she goes all in playing Liv taking on personas as varied as a coach, a stalker, a costumed vigilante or a tough stripper. Every week, McIver is given something different to play and she consistently nails it, with ongoing mileage gotten out of how out there and uncharacteristic Liv gets, depending on her latest brain meal.After his heartbroken ex-fiancé character take a surprising (and awesome) turn at the end of Season 1, Robert Buckley’s Major got a great storyline in Season 2, as he found himself working for Vaughn Du Clark (Steven Weber), tasked with assassinating zombies – all while actually locking them up instead, which put him in a very precarious position both with Du Clark and the cops and the FBI, who were getting closer and closer to him for his actions in both Season 1 and 2.The fact that those investigating Major’s crimes were Clive (Malcolm Goodwin) and his FBI partner/love interest Dale Bozzio (Jessica Harmon) only increased the tension, even while Clive and Dale made a great pairing – with Harmon effortlessly fitting in on the show, as the somewhat goofy Dale provided a great foil for the somewhat stoic Clive. And in the midst of this, having Clive begin to slowly notice the things that were off about Liv was continually intriguing, since it was inevitable that Clive would one day find out The Secret.Blaine (David Anders) in the meantime had to adjust to life as a human again – for awhile at least, as he never kept his nose clean and eventually became one of the undead again, with Anders always bringing a wonderfully quirky/funny approach to the character. McIver and Rahul Kohli continued to be a delightful duo in all the scenes between Liv and Ravi and Kohli shined throughout the season, though I do hope Season 3 can perhaps give Ravi more of his own storyline at some points beyond the ongoing search for a cure or the burgeoning love triangle between Ravi, Peyton (Aly Michalka) and Blaine. The end of the season, as Ravi began to suspect Major was up to no good – and their big confrontation about it – showed how strong it can be to use the usually comic presence of Ravi in a dramatic manner that would be interesting to explore again.As Season 2 progressed, one really strong element was how it began to bring together several storylines. We began to see Major’s growing interaction with Blaine begin to bring him even more in focus as a suspect for Dale and Clive, while Peyton’s return — it was good to see Michalka, who also fits in great with this cast, get more to do — had her wrapped up with Blaine (in more ways than one) and helping lead us to a new villain on the show, Stacey Boss (Eddie Jemison).

Best of all, the “brain of the week” storylines began to becoming increasingly tied into the main stories as well. And yes, this meant sometimes you had to accept a bit more coincidence on the show, but it still was exciting and gratifying to see how all the different elements were intersecting in different ways and how Liv could learn new info thanks to a new murder victim connected in ways that were sometimes not apparent on the surface.When it came to Big Bads, Vaughn Du Clark certainly delivered. Stephen Weber seemed to be having a ball in the role and was delightfully awful as the energetic, confident mega-douche of a sports drink company CEO. He was also given a great foil in Gilda (Leanne Lapp), his daughter, who was just as corrupt as her dad. Gilda has no qualms about manipulating Major, Liv or anyone else and Lapp brought just the right attitude to the character – even as we saw just how awful Du Clark was as a dad, giving us a tinge of sympathy, or at least understanding, about why she was the way she was, even as it was clear she needed to be stopped. The season also ended in an epic, satisfying manner, with Clive finally finding out the truth, an all-out “Romero Zombie” attack and both Du Clark and Gilda being taken out – all while we met a huge new player on the scene that looks to be upending the show in a huge way.Nearly every week, iZombie continued to deliver in its second season and the show easily overcame any sophomore slump worries. The creators and cast seem to know exactly the right  tone to go for here, offering up a show that has a fun, accessible vibe but can get suitably intense, dramatic and gory when need be. When the CW gave all of their series early renewals last year, iZombie was one of the ones I know I was celebrating the most. Bring on Season 3!

51751707I’m glad I got the opportunity to catch this show. It’s no doubt one of the best shows on TV, between 2003-2010. it was a very well written show. The episodes always has their twist even though the cases, at first sight, might seem pretty much alike. This show captures the individuality of each crime, the persons involved and the surroundings in a very good way.cold caseThe fact that the crimes have been committed years ago and that everything involved has changed over the time, gives this show something different then every other cop show. It also captures the humanity of both the victims the suspects and the investigators. There are a lot of feeling in it and it often gets rather touching. Some episodes might contain elements from the characters personal life. It just gives the characters a life beyond the job and this is good as it never takes over the episode or is used to cover a bad plot. The show involves several investigators and you get to know them as well. They got lives and personalities too, yet they don’t steal the show from Rush, witch in the end is the star of the show.
cold_cast_mainThe cast is great. Kathryn Morris does a great job portraying Rush. The cinematography and lightning of this show is just beautiful. It all looks great. Both scenes from past and present. They have given the show a unique look. A kind of white or blue, cold look. They also manage to capture the unique eras in witch the crime was committed. You know just by looking witch decade we’re in. It’s the colors, the way they shoot, the quality and the overall look that make this. The art director, production designer, costume etc. deserves credit for this too. Making the sets and such fit the era.cc4cc1221The original music of this show it catching and good. In addition there is a lot of none original music from the year the crimes are committed. This really gives the right feel and easy gives you the idea of witch year we’re in. The only downside to the use of music of the era means that copyright laws prohibit them being used on DVD and this is why the show has yet come to disc.
