An Incredible iZombie Promise

Where ABC and Fox make you wait a week to see the latest episode (unless you have a cable subscription), The CW understands that it’s commercial TV (not subscription) and that its viewers can’t stop their worlds (no matter how much they want to) to sit and watch their favorite show or, as in my case, take a chance on a new one. … ”The Exterminator” is a good episode in my opinion because it got me wondering if Rob Thomas and Diane Ruggiero-Wright, the show’s creators, would ever make an episode where Liv is frustrated by the stereotypes people have about zombies (like the cavemen in the old GEICO ads ) or write an episode where Liv had to confront own biases towards “Walking Dead” type zombies.
