Summary of “Santa Clarita Diet” Season
Sheila (Barrymore) and Joel (Olyphant) are long-married high school couples living in a complacent furrow in the onymous bedroom society in the north of Los Angeles, working with cautious success as beast of prey. She wishes she could be more impetuous. He wishes he could be more antagonistic. Their teenage daughter, Abby (Liv Hewson), wishes she could have a car to get far away from Santa Clarita.
The couple’s lives take a dark turn after Sheila goes through a transformation – becoming a zombie who feeds on human flesh.Well literally the “diet” refers to a diet of human flesh, because this is a zombie show. The main character is a zombie and human flesh is what zombies eat.
When Santa Clarita Diet was at the beginning declared, Netflix kept that part of the conspiracy a secret, so when early promotion focused on Barrymore grubing on human flesh, there was a, “Wait — THAT’S what the show is about?” response. There’s no real point in being bashful, because Sheila’s transformation is sudden, vomit-filled thing that occurs early in the pilot — probably too early. The series is a before/after changing story in which our only real sense of Sheila and Joel’s “before” life comes from them grumbling about it.The show races off on a carefully curved course of zombie salutation as Joel and Sheila have to accustom to their new assets including Sheila’s new eating habits and the challenges of fulfilling this new hunger when they have law administration figures — Ricardo Chavira’s Dan and Richard T. Jones’ Rick — living on either side of them. It’s Zombie, minus the agenda crime-fighting, brain-affecting character work and succulent ability.

Comparison of the show to previous Zombie show on television
This show is not as maneuver-heavy as zombie TV shows such as The Walking Dead, nor do admired characters die at a rate of 14 per episode. So it might be a more cool to watch this, but it will also be less lovable compared to HBO’s Game of Thrones, which is somehow a zombie show, a dragons show, a witches show, an ice monster show, a medieval army fighting show, and a fashion show, it is much more focused on being one thing. Compared to bloody B-movies, Santa Clarita Diet heap up pretty well. You can put the zombie murder scenes squarely next to anything from the back of your local Blockbuster and it will hold its own. There are blood explosions and gaged-up organs. It is crazy, and some people are into that.
If you are a big fan of Drew Barrymore, she is in nearly every scene so this will be a fruitful experience for you. If you love hulking-out laughter, I promise there is more than enough projectile vomit to keep you happy.
Also, despite the “medium” rating I just gave Santa Clarita Diet, there are some “good” elements to it. The writing is often amusing and Drew Barrymore is as alluring as always. It’s beautiful that when Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant go on the hunt for people for her to kill and eat they note that the ideal target would be a “young, single Hitler.” It reminds me of the time that the internet contend about whether or not it would be ethical to go back in time and kill Hitler as a baby. And that reminds me of the more recent conference about whether it’s okay to punch a Nazi.
At times, during this show, I laughed a little bit. Drew Barrymore eats someone’s nuts, which I think is assumed to be sort of a astute joke about how people think women are behemoth and “man-eaters.”
“Santa Clarita Diet” Season 2 Release Date : 2018
Directed in its first two episodes by Zombieland helmer Ruben Fleischer, the show bluster call that in large part comes from Barrymore’s legitimate delight at Sheila’s new eating habits, which find her again and again bathed in blood, adorned in entrails or barbed at exsanguinated arm. In a TV landscape in which body demolition has become a way for dramas to show their cable nervousness.
Fresco and the writers contrast the joy-out moments and laughter built around Sheila’s increasingly ferocious behavior with myriad punchlines pairing these extremes with normal spousal disagreements. They don’t quite resort to sitcom hackery like, “How dare you leave the toilet seat up?” “Well, how dare you eat people?” but it’s close, and whenever you forget the dueling themes of the show, somebody will say, “I know we have to kill somebody today, but we have to be parents every day” a few times. Episodes of Santa Clarita Diet all run between 26 and 29 minutes, but each could have had two or three minutes of redundant underpinnings trimmed.Seeing the popularity of the series there are a lot chances of its next season to release soon publicly.Well! till now Barrymore haven’t revealed about its next series but after the great liking of the first season soon it will going to be.For more updates regarding the series stay tuned.Till then stay tuned and watch your favourite show with us.
