Is Santa Clarita Diet good?
The Santa Clarita Diet is one of the better Netflix Original shows. It baffles me that it only got three seasons.
The Santa Clarita Diet has a perfect mix of comedy and horror if you want something funny and macabre. It's like a mix between Dexter, iZombie, and Desperate Housewives, only with more humoristic moments.

In the Santa Clarita Diet Sheila is also a zombie. She was more of an outstanding citizen before the change than what Angel was, and she does not have as easy access to food as Angel.
The Santa Clarita Diet is also more humorous than White Trash Zombie, but the humor has lots of fitting macabre elements to it.
If you like White Trash Zombie and want a similar TV-Show, then the Santa Clarita Diet is a good choice. It is slightly less similar than iZombie, but it is still a good fit and an excellent show.

Both White Trash Zombie and The Walking Dead have zombies, action, and drama.

Is iZombie good?
I like iZombie. The main character is witty and cool. Much better than your average CSI type of show.
Why is iZombie recommended?
iZombie is a perfect show for everyone that loves the White Trash Zombie books.
There are some differences like the iZombie, the main character was an A+ student before the turn for one. But there are also many similarities, both works at the morgue and they are both fully functional people with some strange eating habits.

Six Feet Under is a superb TV-Show. This show has serious drama and dark humor melted into one substance of pure awesomeness.

Both stories center around death. Six Feet Under is about a funeral home while Angel is working in a morgue.
