-Thanks for the excellent reviews, LaToya. You’re one of the best writers/reviewers AV Club has had. You enhance the experience of watching the show and I always learn something or see something from a different POV when I read the show reviews, which is something a good reviewer should do. To borrow something from

LaToya, I also yelled about bisexuality being real! But I can also see the argument that in 1985 being bi was probably considered “not real” ... there’s certainly plenty of biphobia still out there, even in lgbt communities.

No I did not, I really only read the A.V. Club so I rely on the recaps and insightful comments like these to fill in the backstory.

Did you see the story on EW that the stories were the actresses actual family backstories that the writers used. They even put in names of their relatives caught up in the historic horrors

Anyone else find a few tears running down their checks at the end of the Jenny/Melrose conflict?

For a second I thought Arthie had gotten Yolanda’s haircut (in addition to taking her appointment) as some sort of weird strategy to win her back, but then I got a better look at it. Hey, I’ve had the same haircut for 30 years, it takes me a second, OK?

I keep thinking of this season as the one where the main focus is on the money people. Season One I always think of as the Director Season, where Sam had this vision of the flying woman in episode one, doodles her on a yellow pad somewhere in the middle, and finally gets the exact shot he wanted in the credits of the

Thanks for these recaps by the way, I know it’s a job and all but you really seem to care about the show and I really appreciate them.

Great review LaToya - the “Buffy” Halloween wig reference was worth the price of admission by itself.

Besides the ending, the other thing I really wanted to talk about was Veronica crashing Jake Kane’s lame speech and Kanye-ing him. That was glorious. Loved the panic in his eyes when she got out of the car. I had to go back and rewatch her yank that microphone from him more than a few times, and the captions saying,

Fantastic reviews for this season and also enjoy your iZombie reviews.  I binged S4 this weekend and once I hit the end last night I was sprinting to the AV Club to get your take.  I think 8 episodes is the perfect season length to play out a mystery like as well as squeeze in fan service without making it feel

Putting Patton Oswalt behind the podium at a city council meeting had to be intentional. As soon as he started talking, we lost it so hard we had to rewind to hear what he actually said. Three minutes? No way!
