This will be a quick one, but I finally watched the first couple episodes of Game Show Network’s newest horror game show, and thought I’d let you know if it was worth watching or not.

Season 5 is here, and it gets weird. But not even a really good kind of weird. The kind of weird where Ryan Murphy is just throwing everything he has into a giant pot and hope it tastes good.

Zombies. The media has a love/hate relationship with them. Whether you’re into The Walking Dead on AMC, or grown tired of walking corpses, you won’t be able to avoid brain munchers on TV. The latest undead spectacle arrived on The CW. Yes, the CW who shows Arrow, The Flash, The Vampire Diaries, all the shows my wife watches. How did my first adventure with iZombie turn out? Will I tune in for episode 2?
