I enjoyed the sound effects.

"Zombie cheerleader" is hardly an original idea--there's a pretty amazing assortment of Halloween costumes for the idea--but there's still a lot of pathos in the episode, with Seth dealing with the aftereffects of finally getting what he wants. It's kind of like the excellent movie Truly, Madly, Deeply but with more gore. Zombies that are not only fast but also fully aware are pretty scary. (Speaking of pathos, the movie Maggie, with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Abigail Breslin, is maybe my favorite zombie movie since Shaun of the Dead and deals with someone being aware of their gradual zombification.)

Also, with the iguana gone, the reset button power is gone. Wonder if that will have any effects going forward?

Multiple probation workers have met their fate (“I‘ll get the shovels”) but squeamish about killing a zombie cat? Enjoyed the whack-a-mole aspect as they tried to contain the um, contagion.
