‘Santa Clarita Diet’

By Steve McSteveface

“Joel and Sheila Hammond are everyday suburban real estate agents in Santa Clarita, California. The couple face a series of obstacles when Sheila has a medical transformation into a zombie and starts craving human flesh. With Joel and the family trying to help Sheila through the trying time, they have to deal with neighbors, cultural norms and getting to the bottom of a potentially mythological mystery.”

I always knew that I would get around to watching this show as I love Drew Barrymore, I love horror and I love comedy. Now that Season Two is about to be released I have finally started watching the show and what can I say – it’s everything I thought it would be.

It has just the perfect mixture of humour and gross-ness for me – oh and camp, it can be described as very camp! I’m not quite ready to delve into the realms of ‘Walking Dead‘ just yet so for me this is the next best thing.


The song featured on one of the trailers for Season One is Cake’s cover of ‘I Will Survive‘ which I guess could be Sheila’s anthem in this show as she struggles to survive in this strange new situation she finds herself in.

There are a lot of ‘light’ songs as well as ‘heavy’ songs on this list which I think kind of reflects the humour and darkness in this show. Enjoy the songs that have been featured, enjoy the ones that I have added as I think they also fit the theme and as usual I will be adding more songs as they come up in the new episodes.
