We Can Kill People 

Joel and Sheila try to solve their dilemma by finding her "meals" among low-lives and criminals who won't be missed. But despite Joel's commitment to support Sheila, he finds that actually killing someone is easier said than done.

Despite not having eaten in two-days, Sheila realizes the effect her condition is having on her daughter and aims to be a better mombie (mom zombie), though Abby, embracing her inner rebel, may not appreciate her parents' attempts to keep a closer eye on her. Still, it has been two days since her last meal, and so the Hammonds accept that they're just going to have to kill someone after all. But who? Doing the Dexter thing only works if you have police ties, but surely there's obvious criminals one can hunt? After a botched attempt with what looked like a good candidate, an encounter with a goon results in a meal with sketchy ties that could cost the Hammonds dearly. Written by pdlussier1

We Can Kill People
2 March 2017 | by bobcobb301See all my reviews

This had more of the tone of the pilot rather than the second episode which was the absurdly goofy dialogue and a very focused plot line. Even the side storyline with the kids had its fair share of laugh, somehow making the idea of a drug-dealing pedophile amusing.

Netflix has stumbled into something great with this show.
