This is a series on Netflix. It stars Drew Barrymore as a carnivore who eats humans. I am just curious who likes and who does not like this comedy series.

Santa Clarita Diet

Well, it grew on me, actually. You could say I developed a taste for it. But seriously, it's over-the-top campy and fun, not serious at all, and the two lead characters are hilarious, especially the husband. But it is also gory, so be warned.

I couldn't get into it. I'm not a Walking Dead fan either though. I don't like zombies.

I could not get into it. Normally I do not like gory. But I like Drew so I gave it a whirl.

I did watch The Walking Dead until recently. I could not take the cruelty between humans.

It's not for me. I like zombies too. I wouldn't judge anyone who did like it, I get the parody aspect but it just didn't make me laugh, think, feel, or be surprised.

I watched the whole thing and found parts to be funny, but sooooooo gross! I also was left wondering what was going to happen to that poor family at the end.

I loved it mainly because of Barrymore and Olyphant are pretty hilarious.

The guy who created it is responsible for my all time favorite tv comedy, Better Off Ted, and Timothy Olyphant has been my actor crush since Justified, so I was primed to like it.

I thought it was very funny despite the zombie stuff not because of it, but it wasn't as funny as Better Off Ted. I still watched it all the way through and laughed out loud frequently.

I love Drew Barrymore, but did not enjoy this series. I watched a couple of episodes and then had no desire to watch any more.

I'm with Gromit. It's funny, but no where near as funny as Better Off Ted. I really think that was one of the funniest shows ever made.

I did have to look away at the gross stuff, but I thought it was a really funny show and I'm not even a huge fan of Drew. I hate zombie stuff but love comedy.

Now I need to watch Better off Ted.

Last I checked, it was on Netflix. Honestly, it is the snarkiest, funniest show. It made me love Portia de Rossi.

Tried one episode. Nope--not for me. I love Timothy Oliphant, too. Really wanted to like it, but couldn't.
