I don’t know if Rose McIver, as Liv, is having as much fun playing her zombie character as I am watching her do it, but so far, it’s been a blast. She has to munch on cadaver brains, attained at her morgue job, to keep from turning into “full-out Romero” zombie mode – but the clever twist here is that as she consumes each dead person’s brains, she also temporarily absorbs some of their memories, abilities and emotions. So already, we’ve seen Liv get more artistic, more emotional, more ruthless, and a lot more skilled at martial arts. She’s like one of the reprogrammable ciphers from Joss Whedon’s Dollhouse, only with a pastier complexion.
