Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist did a good, good thing
January 12th, 2021 under Alex Newell, Skylar Astin, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen, Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on NBC, Zoey (Jane Levy) is finally going to do the bad, bad thing with the man she chose from her love triangle on Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. However, it won’t be easy because she and Max (Skylar Astin) will not be able to get any privacy. Then when they do, she will hear his heart songs. How awkward will that make their lovemaking? That is if they can ever make love.

One of the people that interrupts them is her mom. Maggie (Mary Steenburgen) is still dealing with the loss of her husband, and she doesn’t know what to do with herself. Thankfully, she will find something that will not only help her, but it will also her daughter-in-law (Alice Lee), who is adjusting to being a new mom.

Maggie is not the only thing cock blocking them, so is Mo (Alex Newell). Mo and Max are going into business together, but things sour when Max asks Mo to sign a contract. Why did this upset Mo so much?

What is really upsetting Zoey is that her company’s new watches are on fire. As in, they are literally catching on fire. Now, Zoey, Leif (Michael Thomas Grant), Simon (John Clarence Stewart), and her team at SPRQ Point need to figure out what is causing the problem and how to fix it. Will they be able to find out what is wrong before it is too late?

All of that plus several song and dance numbers. What more do you need to watch last season’s best new show? Especially, since it airs before This Is Us. What a perfect duo for our Tuesday nights in lockdown.


Ted Danson is endearing as Mr. Mayor
January 7th, 2021 under NBC, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen. [ Comments: none ]

Ted Danson gallantly returns to the NBC lineup tonight after almost a year away. The actor is in a good place with Mr. Mayor at 8p.

Los Angeles needs a new mayor because the old one had a mental breakdown. Mayor Neil Bremer (Danson), a retired businessman, who earned his billions in billboards, decides to run for the city’s top official and wins. He has no idea what he is doing, and his staff thinks he is the wrong person for the job. They might be right.

Mikaela (Vella Lovell) used her skills to get him elected, and she is having serious doubts about him being able to do the job. Tommy (Mike Cabellon), the Mayor’s aide, convinces her to stay on. She agrees to do it, as long as they can blame everything on Jayden (Bobby Moynihan), the only holdover from the last administration. He is a bumbling idiot, so their plan is brilliant. Or is it?

Almost as brilliant as Bremer’s decision to hire Arpi (Holly Hunter), his political archnemesis as his Deputy Mayor. She is out to get him. He knows it, and that is why he gave her the job. She figured that out, and that is why she took the job. Can the two rivals work together for the best of the city’s interests? Who will outsmart who first?

There is only one person who cannot outsmart him, and that is his teenage daughter, Orly (Kyla Kenedy). He ran for Mayor for her, and she wishes he didn’t. Will he be able to win her over?

Just like he is going to win over his constituents with all of the photo ops. For example, in tonight’s second episode, he goes from event to event nonstop. He hates them, but he doesn’t mind them as much after he eats some special gummy bears they got at the ribbon cutting for the LA’s 10,000th dispensary.

You will be laughing with Mr. Mayor like he is laughing after eating those edibles. I will warn you; you have to pay to the lines because they sneak in a lot of witty jokes. If you are not paying attention, you just might miss them.

You don’t want to miss them or a single episode because Danson and the sitcom bring the much-needed humor we all need these days. Since this is an ensemble show, they each bring their own dynamic and humor to the show.

Therefore, make sure to vote for all of them tonight and every Thursday.


BTWF: Ted Danson for Head and Shoulders

Before Diane was the only blonde in Ted Danson’s life on Cheers, he had another one who needed Head and Shoulders. He looks the same now as he did when he was 31 in that 1979 ad.


Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen can still make each other laugh after 25 years
October 8th, 2020 under Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen. [ Comments: none ]

Ted Danson and Mary Steenburgen celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary yesterday, and they can still make each other laugh.

“This was SUPPOSED to be a sweet loving anniversary photo but you have a big piece of salad in your teeth. So there it is.” Steenburgen added, “Thank you for making me laugh today and every single one of the last 9,125 days. You are the goofiest, wisest, kindest, dreamboat in the world. True, that is a big ass piece of salad but even that doesn’t mar your legendary beauty. I can’t believe how lucky I am.”

It doesn’t make a difference what makes them smile as a couple, as long as they do.

They say marriages don’t last in Hollywood, but this one is still in a good place. Because of that, it gives us marriage goals.

Happy anniversary. Here is to another 25 years of laughing with each other and 25 after that.


The day the music didn’t die for Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist
June 12th, 2020 under Alex Newell, NBC, Peter Gallagher, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen, Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist. [ Comments: 2 ]

It has been a month since NBC was supposed to announce their lineup for the 2020-2021 season, but they haven’t announced it yet because everything is up in the air because of the coronavirus pandemic. Several of their shows were left waiting to find out if they would still have a home on the network.

Good Girls was told they things are still good with the bad girls. The fat lady sang for Perfect Harmony. The Bone Collector killed Lincoln Rhyme. Manifest is still not sure if it crashed and burned or if it will land safely on their schedule. Indebted is waiting to find out if they indebted to NBC.

Finally, there is Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. Did the music die for last season’s best new show? NOPE! They will be around to sing for another day, which is a good thing for the peacock network. If they had silenced their actors’ voices, then we would have gone nuts. As in found something to send them like when we sent CBS peanuts to save Jericho. We could have sent them cereal because of the cereal bar that is at her office. But we don’t have to do that because the series is coming back!

If you missed out on the musical dramedy when it aired, I highly suggest you watch it now on NBC’s app, OnDemand or Hulu. ZEP is about workaholic programmer Zoey (Jane Levy) whose life changes while she is stuck in an MRI machine during an earthquake. When Zoey gets out of it, she now has the ability to hear people’s heart songs. As in, she is the only one who can see them sing and dance. Something that seems like a curse to her, and a dream come true for us viewers.

ZEP also stars Skylar Astin, Alex Newell, John Clarence Stewart, Peter Gallagher(?), Mary Steenburgen, and Lauren Graham.

Now I am off to watch to some more of the amazing song and dance numbers from the first season like the above one that was shot in one take. You read that right, the finale, not the swan song, was done in one take. Now you know you want to see more, don’t you?

I just want to know if we should be reading too much into her five last words of the season, “They day the music died.”
