By that I mean "iZombie" does not rely on startling special effects to tell its stories. Instead, it relies on really good writing, a strong cast, and - with a couple of rare exceptions - smooth editing.
That, frankly, is how it should be.
In this third season of what is a highly entertaining series, the writers have twisted story lines into pretzel shapes without - and this is important - making them unbelievable.
For example: A former villain loses his memory and becomes - at least on the surface - a good guy. The reason: He simply does not remember how evil he once was, or why he was driven to such heinous acts in the past. Significantly, he then falls in love and later confesses that, in fact, his memory has returned. He knows he was once a very bad man but he wants to continue being a good one.
Why does he do this? Because he's in love with someone who is fundamentally decent and that leads him to "do the right thing" and confess.
What happens next is also believable but it's not my intention to spoil the viewing experience so if you want to know, you'll have to watch the series.
My point is that rather than deliver shallow scripts that are overloaded with CGI, the writers and producers of this series have given us believable characters - hard to do given the genre - and, just as importantly, given us reasons to invest in them.
There were some glitchy editing issues in this season, however, that very nearly caused me to downgrade it from 5 stars to 4. These involved the death of a secondary character. Normally, that might not matter so much but in this case that death plays a pivotal role in the story arc. In the editing process, however, important scenes about her life and death are cut and that makes one of the succeeding episodes difficult to follow.
But not so annoying that I felt the need to downgrade the entire season.
The result: 5 stars.
