The horror-comedy series Santa Clarita Diet is already available streaming on Netflix. The show features Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant as the lead characters. They will play the roles of Sheila and Joel who are also real estate agents in Santa Clarita, California. But, the couple began to live a dark life. It was after Sheila transforms into a zombie who feeds on human flesh.
What Is Santa Clarita Diet All About?
For a TV series, Santa Clarita Diet is odd and quite strange with its execution of the storyline. Some of the scenes may give the feeling of disgust to the audience. Several scenes featured Sheila as she munches on intestines and burps some blood. But, these are the things that most people expect from zombies.
The initial episodes certainly won’t give viewers any hints on what is exactly going on. Everyone will start figuring out the truth. They will find the series hard to resist.
The suburban realtors have a teenage daughter Abby (Liv Hewson). She is unaware of their dark secret. However, she will come to know this secret very soon. It all started when Sheila almost dies after showing a house to their client. She suddenly had a volcanic eruption of vomit and excuses herself. Shiela then coughed up an organ. (Via Vox)
The family will have to deal with Shiela’s new convenient appetite. As a result, they began looking for people who are single, no-kids and evil loner. Indeed, that’s a generous zombie. Meanwhile, having a cop as a neighbor might make it hard for them to do their dirty deed. The cop named Rick noticed some fo the weird stuff happening around the couple’s house. Is he going to catch them red-handed or will he become a victim of Shiela’s appetite?
The viewers learn that Sheila and Joel were childhood school sweethearts. Aside from that, they even became the king and queen at their prom. The married couple then found some jobs in the real estate industry but they have no real passion for it. Sadly, they have a family now and they need to take care of their home for them.
Critical Reception & Reviews
