The premise of the show is that a medical student is turned into a zombie and she has to eat brains to be high-functioning (my term). So she works in the medical examiners' office where she has access to the brains of the bodies brought in. As a side benefit, she sees visions from the dead person's life (not always a good thing) and helps the police solve the murders that way. Only her boss (at first) knows she's a zombie.
Here are my thoughts.

Rose McIver does a very good job in the lead role as Liv Moore (get it?). She takes on the personalities of the persons whose brains she eats, so each week she has to have a new personality. It's fun to watch.
My biggest complaint is I get so tired of the "evil corporation" trope. Why isn't there ever an evil welfare office, trapping people in poverty so the bureaucrats can keep their jobs?
I recommend this show despite my one complaint. The writing is superb, the acting well done, and the premise is interesting. I'll probably start watching season two on Monday since I'm busy this weekend.
