Copy Couch Recommends: Santa Clarita Diet

 “Santa Clarita Diet” is now on its second season on Netflix starring Drew Barrymore and Timothy Olyphant.

Barrymore and Olyphant star as Sheila and Joel Hammond, married real estate agents whose lives are turned upside down when Sheila suddenly begins to craves human flesh. 

As a member of the “undead,” Sheila and her family must navigate how to handle her cravings while living in an all American suburban neighborhood. 

The Hammonds must dodge cops, their neighbors, try to conform to cultural norms and raise their teenage daughter all while finding the perfect human victims. 

Barrymore and Olyphant have great chemistry on screen and their witty, self deprecating humor shows off their personalities and acting chops. 

As with Sheila’s craving, Sheila and Joel’s relationship only becomes stronger. What it means to truly love someone in life and in death is put to the test as Joel watches Sheila’s immense need for consuming humans grow. 

This marital zombie comedy is original, funny and unfortunately, only has 10 episodes per season. 

Through the various plot twists and seeing the Hammond’s escape plans, we get to enter a world that is so unlike our own and shows us the power of family and marriage. 

Their daughter Abigail also becomes a fierce teen throughout the show, as she tries to be a regular high school student while trying to clean up after her mother’s mess and soothe her parents’ anxiety. Definitely worth a watch!
