Binge 2017 Retrospective: Santa Clarita Diet Season 1 on Netflix

Santa Clarita Diet is a 10-episode comedy series on Netflix that details the story of when a normal housewife becomes a zombie.

It’s an interesting idea, with Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as the lead actors. There are some really funny scenes, some oddly uncomfortable scenes (spoiler: apparently being a zombie increases your desire for intimacy with your spouse), and some really gross scenes. If you have a weak stomach, this show is likely not for you.

I wouldn’t classify this as one of the best shows I’ve watched, but it wasn’t the worst either. It was kind of funny with an intriguing premise. What would happen if a housewife became a zombie? The answer is it turns out you have to kill people so she can eat...better kill the bad guys, right? I like how they struggled to find out if there is a cure for being a Zombie and how the husband and wife struggle with how to keep their daughter out of the burden of the wife being a zombie and them having to kill people at night.

They left the show on a cliffhanger and I would be interested in watching a season 2 and see where they took it, but if there is never a season 2 I don’t think I would miss it.
