Zoey turns 30, so Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist gets its first original song
April 4th, 2021 under Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 9p on NBC’s Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, Zoey (Jane Levy) turns 30, so her mom (Mary Steenburgen) wants to throw her a big birthday party. She is hesitant to do it because it is so soon after her father’s death. Eventually, she gives in, and everyone but her is excited about it.

Her co-workers are looking forward to it because they want to party. Mo (Alex Newell) wants to bring the fire marshall that Mo has been crushing on. Simon (John Clarence Stewart) wants to bring his new girlfriend. Then there is Max (Skylar Astin). Zoey hears his heart song to his summer camp crush, and she wonders if their pause should be permanent.

Therefore, she decides to have that talk with him. How will it go? I can’t tell you that.

What I can tell you is that at her party, we get an original song sung by her next door neighbor Aiden (Felix Mallard), who is in a band. A band that has reignited her brother’s (Andrew Leeds) love life with his wife (Alice Lee). So much so that we get a one-take of everyone at her party singing Sixpence None the Richer’s Kiss Me to their dance partners.

As amazing as the new song Crimson Love and Kiss Me are, my favorite song comes earlier in the episode. It is a group number lead by Stewart. I always love when he gets a tune to sing.

Actually, I like when they all sing. Why don’t you? I mean, it is our second Easter in lockdown, so there is nothing to do but to watch Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. Therefore, you should do it.

On a serious note, I respect how they handled Zoey not wanting to celebrate her birthday after her dad’s death. Anyone, who lost a parent, can tell you they feel the same way. I know I still do.


Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist gets loud tonight
March 28th, 2021 under Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist. [ Comments: none ]

Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is back with Good Girls tonight at 9p on NBC. A perfect pairing for those Monday blues that are creeping through. You cannot be sad whenever you watch Zoey’s because it is such a feel-good show. Tonight’s episode is another example of that.

Zoey (Jane Levy) has a memory of looking at the stars with her dad, and she wants to do it again. She asks all of her friends and family to go with her, and they all say no. She finally finds someone to go with her. Someone that none of us would have ever expected. How will that go over?

Meanwhile, her brother (Andrew Leeds) is dealing with his new lifestyle now that he quit his job, and he is starting to Drift Away. There might be something that interests him, but he has to convince people to let him be part of it. Will he be able to do it?

Mo (Alex Newell) and Max (Skylar Astin) are finally ready to open their restaurant that doesn’t serve food. There is only one problem; the fire marshall has found a lot of problems that will prevent that. Will they be able to get it all done so that they can say Let’s Get Loud, or will they be closed down before they open.

Zoey hears a love song from someone, and it is about their Tainted Love. Will she be able to get them together?

All of this leads to a sweet ending which is why we love this show, and more of you should be watching.

If you are not watching, you are missing out on this darling show that reminds us that television can be enjoyable. Therefore, make sure to watch it. It has better song and dance numbers than American Idol. Why watch Katy Perry when you can watch a cast of people that you like and don’t annoy you.


Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist takes on race issues tonight
February 9th, 2021 under Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist. [ Comments: none ]

Last week when Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist ended, Simon (John Clarence Stewart) revealed that his employer, SPRQ Point, has a problem dealing with its minority workers during a press conference. Tonight at 8p on NBC, they deal with the fallout from his words.

Simon is prepared to be fired, but they have not made a decision on his future employment. Zoey (Jane Levy) feels bad that she did not know that this was going on, so she decides to hold a town hall with her programmers. It goes really badly. Even the employees are clueless.

The one group of people that know what they want to be done is the Board of Directors. They tell Danny (Noah Weisberg) that Simon has to retract what he said. Even though Danny is the big boss, he tells Zoey to tell Simon to do it.

She goes to Mo (Alex Newell) for help, and Mo has a surprising response to her friend. Mo knows what Simon is going through because Mo is also African-American.

When Zoey gets back to the office, she has to confront Simon. How will he handle what she asks him to do?

Zoey is at a loss; she doesn’t know what to do. Simon has made his decision, what is he going to do?

Can anything be done to change racial inequality at work? Lessons will be learned, but will they be too late.

Zoey’s did an intriguing take on this topic. It is not easy to tackle this issue in an hour, but they handled it brilliantly.

Not only did the show do a great job, so did Stewart, who gave his best performance to date. Be prepared to be blown away by his heartfelt performance tonight.

NBC announced today when their Spring shows are premiering, so get ready for the return of Chris Meloni, aka Stabler, on April Fool’s Day.

Zoey gets high on Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist tonight
February 2nd, 2021 under Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on NBC, uptight Zoey (Jane Levy) loosens up on Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. When I say loosen up, I mean she gets high. Imagine her power to hear people’s heart songs when she is on edibles?

What finally caused her to loosen up? Remember when last week’s episode ended, and she was reunited with her childhood neighbor Aiden (Felix Mallard)? He is no longer a child, and boy is he a man. The two have a heart-to-heart, and he sings a heart song to her that changes her way of thinking.

So much so that she decides to take the day off from work. However, she takes it on a day that her boss decides to plan a surprise visit to the office. When she is not at work, Danny (Noah Weisberg) tells her he is going to come to her. That wouldn’t be a problem if she had not just taken an edible. What happens when he shows up just as it starts to have an effect on her?

Danny is in town because of a problem with her team’s project, Chirp. He asks Simon (John Clarence Stewart) to be the smooth things over with the press. However, the problem causes him to question things with SPRQ Point. It is a moral dilemma for him, and he is going to have to make a decision that might cost him his job.

While he still has a job, Max (Skylar Astin) and Mo (Alex Newell) are trying to get their restaurant that doesn’t sell food off the ground. They are having some problems that will only be made more complicated when his judgemental father comes to town.

He is not the only one dealing with judgemental problems, so is Maggie (Mary Steenburgen). Now that she turned down her client, he hates the landscaping job she is doing at his house. Will she lose the first job she has had since her husband died?

Even though someone sings Natasha Bedingfield’s Unwritten tonight, the episode is perfectly written. If you are not watching, then you are missing out on the original show on broadcast television.

One spoiler, wait until you see Stewart’s song and dance number. Whenever he gets a solo, he makes the most of it. Tonight is no exception.
