As far as I’m concerned, anything that gets queen Drew Barrymore on screen nowadays is worth peeping. It just so happens that her latest project (which she stars in and executive produces) is the weird and wonderful Santa Clarita Diet. Existing somewhere at the intersection of quirky family comedy and over-the-top gorefest, Santa Clarita Diet is a zombie series that’s as odd as it is inventive, centering on a maladjusted suburban mom (Barrymore) whose life is turned upside down after she develops a taste for human flesh. The series has all of the joys of a horror-comedy you’d expect, and Barrymore mows on more than a few unsightly body parts, but the show’s biggest joy is the family drama the viscera unfolds around. You’d be hard-pressed to find another show that’s as game for a heartfelt mom-and-daughter chat as it is a shockingly over-the-top puke session—and I mean shocking. —Aubrey Page
