Storyline

Hottie Lowell Tracey returns to chat and date Liv again, says all the right things and even proves remarkably patient with her insecurity, and the only truly understanding date as fellow good zombie. Ravi is delighted to offer his gamer skills to help find the murderer of a hacker, whose brain renders Liv agoraphobic, among the champions of a video role play he excels in. Blain shows no mercy for the zombie client with benefits who killed and cannibalized one of his delivery boys, Liv's mother discovers his delicatessen shop, the job vacancy and volunteers her son. Major's search for his missing halfway house charges points to dangerous Blaine. Written by KGF Vissers

Quotes

[first lines]
Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti: [sewing stitches] Easy. You're lucky you're not dead. Although, if you were, this would come much more naturally to me.
Major Lilywhite: [laying on his exam table] You know what you're doing, right?
Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti: I mean, theoretically. Sure. But did you consider a trip to the ER?
Major Lilywhite: I'm a social worker. My insurance covers, like, one Band-Aid a year.
Olivia 'Liv' Moore: [entering] Major? What the hell?
Dr. Ravi Chakrabarti: It's nothing.
Olivia 'Liv' Moore: Those are Y-incision stitches! They need to be closer together, unless you're going for that Frankenstein look.

Personally not as strong as the previous five episodes, but still good

Virtual Reality Bites is another good episode, but sadly, it wasn't as strong as the first five episodes, which were great after a promising debut. The drama wasn't as strong as I hoped, much like Liv and Let Clive, which in that episode was the only problem I had with. Also, Bradley James (who played Arthur in BBC's Merlin) and his character wasn't nearly as interesting as the main protagonists. His performance was fine, it's just that I wish that he could've been written better. Anyway, the rest of the episode has some of the same qualities from the previous episodes. The blend of comedy and crime is still well handled, the pacing didn't drag, the directing/editing is still superb, the performances, other than Bradley James, are still spot on, the writing, despite the drama not being as strong and aside from Bradley James' not interesting character, is still good and the music score continues to shine. Overall, not excellent and not as strong, but it's still a good episode.
