Timothy Olyphant and Drew Barrymore star as husband and wife realtors Joel and Sheila in the dark comedy. They’re leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby (Liv Hewson), until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction…but in a good way.
This show is not going to be for everyone. It's dumb and witty, it's wacky, it's disgusting and it's bloody hilarious as Drew and Timothy are great together as she transforms from ordinary housewife into a suburban, fleshing-eating, horny housewife with a a ravenous bite.
I'm not sure how I feel about this show. It's on Netflix, check. It has people who can actually act, check. It's about zombies and has recognizable undead tropes, check. Yet, I'm teetering in neutral: I don't want to give it a bad review because I watched all ten episodes nor do I want to spread the word by encouraging people to watch. I might have to re-watch it to see if I like this show, which doesn't exactly fill me with joy.
This show is so fun! I binge-watched it in one sitting. I loved the characters and the humour. Sheila and Joel are relationship goals. Drew Barrymore is amazing. Timothy Olyphant is really-really nice to look at. Seriously, how is he so attractive? I suggest you go watch this show now! And it better get a second season.
I enjoyed this show and wish it had another season. I get it, the plot doesn't really lend itself to several seasons, but I wish that it had wrapped up more neatly. Netflix needs to stop axing shows before giving them a proper sendoff.
A lot of blood and guts (a given on a show about the undead) but it's hilarious and smart. It can be a bit over the top at times, which is the point, and it's not gonna be everyone's type of humor, but you should definitely give it a chance.
I have very mixed feelings about this show, I wasn't overly keen on some of the characters or the comedy, but for some reason I couldn't stop watching and binge watched the whole season in one night! It is by no means an amazing show but does provide several hours of entertainment.
I loved this series.. it was cute, funny, quirky.. Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant we great together.. in fact all the actors were terrific.. the writing was awesome and I could see this series going more than the 3 year run it was given.. gosh they really left it on a cliffhanger for me..
Such a brilliant combo : sunshine, zombies, not the end of the world, good looking people, gory deaths but not too much. And a nazi lobster pool !
I mean, zombies in the sunshine but that can keep their wits ?
The whole thing was AMAZEBALLS !
Why would you cancel it so soon ! Probs had another couple of good seasons under its belt.
