会破案的僵尸

原标题: Back from the dead

不知从何时开始,僵尸题材变得越来越受欢迎,不过绝大多数僵尸剧的主题不外乎人类与僵尸的生存决斗。而《我是僵尸》却是一部看着或许会让你笑出声来的“另类”......

Zombies have become very serious business over the years. Legions of video games, movies and television shows have all tried their best to use the undead to say something profound about the living, to mixed results.
近年来,“僵尸”题材变得越来越严肃,一大批电子游戏、电影、电视剧都使劲浑身解数,想要通过这些“不死之身”表达一些关于生死的深奥之理,不过效果貌似喜忧参半。

Based on an ongoing DC Comics series, “iZombie” waves off all that self-seriousness and instead embraces the inherent goofiness of its subject matter with open arms, and the result is a show that’s funny and addictive.
根据连载中的漫威漫画改编而成的美剧《我是僵尸》则抛弃了(假装深刻的)惺惺作态,一展僵尸题材自带的荒谬,反而让整个剧趣味盎然,让人欲罢不能。

Olivia “Liv” Moore (Rose McIver) was once a promising young medical student with a bright future, dedicated fiancé and supportive family. But after being attacked at a boat party, she washes up on a beach zombified and hungry for brains (and instant noodles), her bright future suddenly darkened.
(女主)奥利维亚“丽芙”摩尔(罗丝 麦克莱弗 饰)本是一名前途大好的医学院女学生,拥有对她一心一意的未婚夫和支持她的父母。然而一次游轮聚会的意外让一切都陷入黑暗,(在游轮上)丽芙遭到僵尸袭击,后被冲上海岸,变成了喜欢吃人脑(还有方便面)的僵尸。

In order to keep her flesh-eating-monster instincts in check, Liv drops out of medical school and takes a job at a morgue, where she can feed on brains in secret and, just barely, live. When she discovers eating brains allows her to inherit the traits of the deceased and experience flashbacks of their last moments before dying, she uses her abilities to help the local police department solve murders.
为了控制自己食肉的僵尸本性,丽芙退了学,在停尸房找了一份工作,以便悄无声息地食人脑过活。后来她发现吃脑之后,自己会继承大脑主人的性格,看到那人临死的瞬间。丽芙于是开始利用这种能力帮助当地警局破案。

It’s an over-the-top setup in keeping with the show’s over-the-top sensibilities. The creators spend no time justifying their approach, and that’s for the best. This is a series where you’re just going to have to go with the flow.
这部剧在脑洞过大的背景下一路保持其夸张的感性。编剧们从未花时间证明剧情的合理性,也许这样正是最好的选择。看剧时,你(无需思考)只要跟着剧情走就好。

Each episode plays out like a quirkier version of the average crime drama: There’s a crime, there’s an investigation, there’s a twist, and then the mystery is solved. What makes “iZombie” different is that it employs this formula not to shock audiences with the grittiness of police work, but as a vehicle to push along Liv’s development as a character.
《我是僵尸》的每一集都犯罪片,却比犯罪片更诡异:首先发生刑事案件,然后开始调查,经历一波三折,最后谜案得解。与众不同则在于其不再极力展现警察惊人的破案能力,而是将破案过程当做推进丽芙这个角色成长的工具。

As Liv solves crimes and takes on new personality traits, she gradually discovers she has the power to cope with what she’s become and deal with the unfair obstacles fate has placed before her.
随着犯罪案件一一得解,越来越多的性格在丽芙身上呈现,她渐渐发现自己其实能够应对变成僵尸的自己,直面挡在她面前不公的障碍。

"Izombie" is a story about unexpected reinvention, and it’s never been more fun watching a zombie come back to life.
《我是僵尸》讲述了一个意外重生的故事,而还有什么比看着僵尸苏醒更有趣呢?
