Discussions of diversity focus, rightly, on providing more visibility and more interesting role for marginalized people. But "Santa Clarita Diet" shows how eviscerating those old stereotypes allows everyone, of every gender, to rise anew.
Season Three is in a wonderful place after the events that unfold. It may not seem that way at first but we're treated to what could potentially be a fitting finale of sorts, but also if given the chance, a brilliant set-up for a potential fourth season.
Barrymore is once more a force of nature whether she's leaping into attack mode or quipping it up with Olyphant. Their chemistry is explosive, and the writing on the series makes their bond feel as authentically intimate as it is hilarious and enthralling
Offering another season that is just as delicious as its predecessors, "Santa Clarita Diet" continues to delight with its weirdos, creatures and marital drama. Yes, there are zombies here, but there is nothing dead about the zest of this show.
Thanks to the writing and Barrymore and Olyphant's performances, Sheila and Joel's marriage has always been of the best on TV; the real-life problems they faced were given a fresh, comedic twist by this supernatural premise.
This year's season is the most satisfying of the lot and has the most story to work through. The performances in the series are all still amazing and these are characters that you just want to hang out with.
