I wouldn’t say I’m a huge fan of serious zombie films or TV shows, but when they are comedy they tend to work! Santa Clarita Diet is an interesting and funny take on the zombie story. Drew Barrymore plays Sheila Hammond, a real estate agent who after a violent vomiting experience becomes a zombie. Whilst I’m usually okay with blood and mild gore, it’s a little off-putting when Barrymore is casually drinking a human meat smoothy or chewing on a refrigerated foot.
This show is pretty original and an unexpected bonus is Timothy Olyphant, Liv Hewson and Skyler Gisondo’s remarkable comedic timing. They help the show stand out amongst all the other TV sitcoms. Santa Clarita Diet is definitely worth a watch, just be prepared for some gross cringey scenes.
