What do you get when you put Dexter, zombies and humour in a blender? Possibly Santa Clarita Diet.
I’m enjoying this new Netflix originals series. It’s nothing like the Walking Dead or other ‘horrified’ zombie series. If I had to compare it to another production I would say it’s a mix of Dexter (cleaning up people 😉 ), Shaun of the Dead (laughs over the zombie stuff) and something else.
The show is mainly about humor, there aren’t really any scary gross scenes. They even managed to pull of a Family Guy’s Consuela joke, Housekeeping… I clean now 🙂 The cast, mainly out off known movie actors, is doing a good job.
Joel (Timothy Olyphant) and Sheila (Drew Barrymore) are husband and wife realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby, until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction…but in a good way.
