Fangirl Friday: Santa Clarita Diet
A Diet You Can Actually Stick With.
I've been putting off tackling my daunting TBR list, and catching up on all my usual shows. So, of course, it makes sense that I'd start a brand new one. Because, why not?
I was browsing Netflix and saw Drew Barrymore, figured I'd give the first episode a go, and that was it. I was hooked.
Click through to read why you should definitely give Santa Clarita Diet a chance! (NO SPOILERS!)
In Santa Clarita Diet, Joel (Timothy Olyphant, Justified) and Sheila (Drew Barrymore, Blended) are husband and wife realtors leading vaguely discontented lives in the L.A. suburb of Santa Clarita with their teenaged daughter Abby (Liv Hewson), until Sheila goes through a dramatic change sending their lives down a road of death and destruction…but in a good way.That's almost all I want to say because going in with zero expectations was insanely fun. So I'm going to keep the info at a minimum.
The series is about husband and wife realtors, Sheila and Joel (Olyphant), raising their teenaged daughter Abby (Liv Hewson) in Santa Clarita. On the surface everything seems almost dull in how ordinary it is. Weird neighbors, difficult teenager, the usual, nothing out of the ordinary here, right?
|Nathan Fillion & Timothy Olyphant talking vomit.|
Come on. How many shows are going to give you that?
Timothy Olyphant, my Lord. I have never seen him play someone like this, but it is amazing to watch. I will not believe you if you don't fall head over heels in love with poor, sweet Joel who just wants his family to be happy and to love his wife no matter what. Has there ever been a better TV husband? I think not.
And much more of Timothy Olyphant being so.damn.confused.
|You will see this face a lot.|
|Not enough of this, though.|
And if you need something more to tempt you, Nathan Fillion is in the first episode. And he looks finger lickin' good. Watch it!
