Hello Brainies! There’s now only 5 weeks until the season 4 premiere of iZombie, and just like last week, we’ll continue the countdown by celebrating our favorite TV show with a string of throwbacks. Last Monday we took a look at our favorite brains from the first 3 seasons, and today we’ll continue with some of the funniest scenes! I’ve put together a video with some of my personal favorites, but make sure to leave a comment in the comments field below with your personal ones. The focus have mainly been on Liv’s scenes (we are a Rose fansite after all!), but there’s a lot of different guest characters included. Stay tuned for another iZombie special next Monday!

Hello fellow Brainies! Today is the first of 6 remaining Mondays before the season 4 premiere of our favorite show, and we’ll count down with iZombie specials on each of the 6 Mondays! We’ll try to make the wait seem shorter, by looking back at our favorite moments, brains, characters and more. Each post will be different, but they all have in common that they will honor the best Rom-Com-Zom-Dram on television!

For our first post, we’re gonna look back at out 10 favorite brains from season 1, 2 and 3. These are ranked by order of episode, but you can help us rank them by best to worst in the poll at the bottom of the post. There’s been so many great brains over the three seasons, so this was a very hard pick – but these 10 stands out as the most memorable, wittiest and most creative! Make sure to leave a comment in the comments section below, letting us know if you agree or disagree with our list. Is there a certain brain you feel we should have included? Let us know.

To make this post a little diverse, we’ll present some of the brains as videos we have created with our favorite scenes, some with GIFs and some with quotes and information. Thank you so much to one of our favorite iZombie tumblrs, iZombie source, for all the GIFs used in this post. Make sure to follow them if you have an account at the site! Now, let’s get to it shall we?

Crazy Brain (Scott E.) – 1×11

Throughout this list, you’ll probably pick up on that a lot of the brains we’ve chosen are due to the comedy they provide. That said, the reason we have decided to include this first one is not due to the comedy it provides (at least not solely – but we all sure laughed out loud when Liv was shouting at the devil inside the vending machine!). In the episode, Liv eats the brain of Scott E., a former drug dealer with a troubled childhood who previously worked for Stacey Boss. Scott E. was the identical twin brother of Don E., who we met later on in the show (and who is still one of our favorite characters). He was present at the Lake Washington Boat Party, and witnessing the humans turn into zombies mixed with his already unstable mental history (which included hearing voices) pushed him over the edge. He went crazy, and was admitted to the Blooming Grove Mental Hospital. There he started an affair with one of his doctors, Dr. Maddy Larson, who became pregnant with his child after endless tries with her own husband. Scott E. tried to convince her to take an abortion, but Dr. Larson refused and killed him. Once Liv ate his brain, she started hearing voices and seeing a red devil which followed her around. Unlike all the previous brains, it became clear that she would not be getting the regular old flashbacks with people’s memories, but rather learn about Scott E.’s past through these visions. The reason for its inclusion on our list is the very clever writing, which really makes this brain stand out from all the others. Liv and Clive are usually lead to the murderers by following the leads Liv’s flashbacks give them, but we love the idea that getting these hints from the victims aren’t always reliable.

We also have to mention the heartbreaking scene where Liv realize her confession about being a zombie to Major (which he took very well) was all in her head, caused by Scott E.’s condition. Once she meets Major again, she’s unable to confess anything before he tells her that he knows zombies are real, and that he’s going to kill them all. We were brought through all the emotions and visions together with Liv, not knowing what was real and what wasn’t – other than the obvious devil appearances. When Liv realized Johnny Frost was just a vision, we were just as confused as her. The writing in this episode was so good, it really stands out as one of the most creative episodes of the series!

Hello friends! Remember our old site special “10 reasons to…”? We know the amount of posts here at Rose McIver Online have declined in the past year, and we want to change that. There was a lot of great feedback on our old posts, and we think you guys enjoyed reading them as much as we enjoyed creating them – so let’s bring them back! I will try to make it a much more regular feature, especially now that we’re heading into another iZombie hiatus (and we all know how long those feel). We’ll start a new one called “Rose McIver Online Spotlights 10…”, and over the next weeks we’ll put some spotlight on some of our favorite Rose stuff; such as 10 unforgettable outfits, memorable film scenes, favorite interviews and more.

With this post, I want to highlight certain career projects which many fans might have forgotten – newer fans of Rose might not even know about them! iZombie take up a lot of our focus these days, but Rose has a long list of short films, film productions and television shows to her name. For today’s post, I have picked out 10 of her projects which I want to put some spotlight on. I’ve had a lot of fun creating this post, and I hope you’ll enjoy watching clips of some of our girl’s older projects. So let’s jump to it, shall we?

1: The Dinner Party

I’ll kick off our throwback with one of my personal favorites! Back in 2012, Rose was a guest on one of BriTANicK’s youtube comedy films called “The Dinner Party”. The film is a shy of 4 minutes long video, with the dramatic tagline “Tonight’s main course? Betrayal.” Rose was a guest together with Jessy Hodges and Kyle Mooney, and we get to hear her act with different accents. Check it out – and prepare for a good laugh!

2: All Good Bananas

Early in her career, Rose did a lot of smaller acting jobs to promote herself and earn money to be able to follow her dream. Between these jobs, she teamed up with Ogilvy Auckland and All Good Bananas (in her home country New Zeland”) to earn some money part-time. In 2010, they did an advert called “Listen To Your Conscience”, where Rose is the voice of the listener’s conscience. Ogilvy Auckland’s objective was to get shoppers to consider purchasing All Good Fair-trade bananas while at the supermarket. To do this, they used a new audio-spotlight device to interact with them like never before. Unlike a regular speaker, the audio-spotlight emits a narrow high frequency beam of sound, which can only be heard by one person at a time, making it the perfect tool for communicating their intimate message. You can watch the advert Rose participated in below!

Hello Rose fans! Since news are very slow again (Rose is busy filming season two of our favorite show ), we’ve put together a new special post for you. This one isn’t exactly 10 REASONS TO, but it’s a 10 -something 😉

1: Her #ALSicebucketchallenge video.

Around this time last year, people all around the world participated in the #ALSicebucketchallenge – and despite us being slightly biased (ehem … possibly very biased), hers stood out as one of the absolute cutest of them all! Who can forget her adorable “that seemed like a lot” at the end … ? To be fair, of all the Ice Bucket challenge videos we have seen, Rose was showered with the biggest amount of water by far! (click the thumbnails to open her video in a new window).

2: Her one-day romance with Robert Buckley (dressed as a pirate)
They’re one of our favorite couples on our favorite show (we guess you can all tell which?), but in real life Rose and Robert are only very close friends. They like to shower us with moment so adorable that all Major and Liv shippers go full on “AAGSKLHDJKHGJDKHF” though, and one of those times was when Rose posted a photo on instagram of the twosome dressed up, titled “Romance with @robertearlbuckley”. Swoon …

Inspired by our amazing friend over at iZombie Obsessed, we’re launching a new feature here at the site. This is something we’ll write / post whenever Rose news are slow, like right now… Stuff coming up are “10 reasons to watch Maddigan’s Quest” (and other films/TV shows of hers), “10 reasons to be obsessed with iZombie” and more. We hope you enjoy it!

Reason 10: She’s amazing to her fans!

Everyone who meets Rose says the same thing about her; she’s amazing!! She always takes time to talk, sign autograph and take photos, and she’s always all smiles. Her team tends to have to drag her away from interviews at Con’s and other events, as she just wants to please everyone and never wrap it up. She’s also very sweet to her fans on twitter – running #AskRose regularly, replying to many, spending a lot of time favoring iZombie related tweets and more.
