Ordinary Joe is the heartfelt drama we need

Sometimes in life, we have multiple choices, and we can only choose one of them. Do you ever wonder what would happen if you made a different choice? That is the premise of Ordinary Joe that debuts on NBC tonight at 10p after The Voice.

Joe (James Wolk) is 22 minutes late to his college graduation, and because of that, it could change his life forever. That is when he meets Amy (Natalie Martinez), and they have an immediate connection. He decides to ask her out, and she says yes. By him choosing her, he follows his path to being a Rock Star. The two of them get married and desperately want to start a family, but it doesn’t seem to be working out that way for them. That is one life choice he made that day.

But what if he chose to go with Jenny (Elizabeth Lail), his best friend and friend with benefits? The two of them get married and have a son (John Gluck). Since being a Rock Star will be put on the back burner, he decides to become a nurse. That takes a toll on his marriage. Can he repair it? That is another choice he made that fateful day.

The third choice is he chooses to spend time with his mother (Anne Ramsay) and his uncle (David Warshofsky), who is a cop, instead of both women. That leads to him becoming a police officer like his uncle and his dad. In this timeline, he is single. But that all might change when he goes to his college reunion and reunites Jenny and Amy.

What happens at the college reunion affects all three timelines differently and moves his life forward.

How that reunion changes the course of his life is what we get to watch every week. Because we have all wondered what if we chose differently that one time. Ordinary Joe shows what happens when someone does.

It is an interesting and original concept, and they do a good job by separating each timeline and not making it confusing for the viewer to know which path we are focusing on in that scene.

Plus, Wolk is such an endearing, well-versed actor. He plays each Joe differently and the same. You can’t help but root for him in each timeline. Especially because he has a supporting cast that supports him. It is as though they have known each other for the 10 years that the characters have known each other.

Ordinary Joe is a feel-good show, and it is something we all need as we try to survive this pandemic. There is hope in whatever choice we make, even if it feels like there isn’t. And don’t we all need a little hope these days? Hope like Ordinary Joe has in all of the decisions he made on his graduation day.

Now, I wonder what would have happened if I didn’t go to my internship right after my college graduation. What if I decided to hang out with my parents or my friends instead on that day? Where would I be today? What is your Oridinary Joe moment?


It looks like Ordinary Joe will be this season’s extraordinary show

Have you ever wondered what would have happened if you had done something differently that one time? Would it have changed who you are now? That is what NBC’s Ordinary Joe will ponder starting on September 20th at 10p.

Seeing how his life could’ve gone in three different directions makes me want to see what direction the show will go in.

Plus, James Wolk is such a likable actor, we will want to tune in to find out what happens next to him.

Tell Me a Story. James Wolk met Elizabeth Jae Lynch and they fell in love. Four years ago they made that love official and got married. In January 2017, they welcomed a baby who they call Charlie. They didn’t want their son to be alone, so they tenderly gave him the sweet gift of a baby sister recently.

Now James, Elizabeth, Charlie and Lucy Kate will live happily ever after. Or at least until their children become preteens. Then all bets are off.

James Wolk and his wife, Elizabeth Jae Byrd, welcomed their first child together a boy named Charlie. The Zoo actor did not say when he was born, but the newborn is definitely a beautiful bouncing baby boy. And you can already tell that even though they have only known each other for just a few hours, they are already so much in love! Hopefully their dog Flea will feel the same way.
