Can Zoey be as happy as Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist makes us?
January 26th, 2021 under Alex Newell, Skylar Astin, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen, Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight at 8p on NBC on Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, Zoey (Jane Levy) is going to try to be happy after being egged on by Mo (Alex Newell) to try it. I mean, you can’t blame her for being sad. In the last two months, she lost her father, her mentor/boss moved away, and she broke up with her boyfriend. That is a lot to handle.

How long can she handle being happy before something brings her down? Not too long. As soon as she gets to work, she is given her toughest challenge yet as the new boss. While that is her challenge, Max (Skylar Astin) and Mo prepare to launch their business. How will their opening night go?

Talking about openings, David (Andrew Leeds) has a big case, and his family decides to watch him give his opening statement at court. While he is talking to the judge, he starts to sing a heart song that only his sister can hear. And I am so happy to hear him sing a solo. It is about time he got one.

And when it comes to getting one, is the recently widowed Maggie (Mary Steenburgen) about to get a new boyfriend? How will she handle someone flirting with her?

All of this leads to an ending that will have Zoey flirting with danger. But I have said too much. I will say I cannot wait to see where the show goes next after that. Then again, I am always looking forward to their next episode? How can you not love this darling show that brings me and so many others happiness. It is what we all need.


Zoey has nowhere to hide on Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist
January 19th, 2021 under Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist. [ Comments: none ]

Tonight’s Zoey Extraordinary Playlist at 8p on NBC is a nightmare for Zoey (Jane Levy). That is because she hasn’t been getting any sleep due to her scary dreams. The lack of sleep is making her angry, and she can’t express her feelings to anyone, including Max (Skylar Astin).

Max is also dealing with issues with Mo (Alex Newell) over their new business venture together. While their business is just taking off, Maggie (Mary Steenburgen) is trying to reinvent her landscaping company without her late husband. Her first meeting did not go well. However, she will have help from someone she never expected.

Maggie is not the only one needing help, so do her son (Andrew Leeds) and daughter-in-law (Alice Lee). David and Emily are having a hard time adjusting to being parents of a newborn so soon after he lost his father.

The loss of her father causes Zoey to have a heart-to-heart with Simon (John Clarence Stewart). He knows what it is like to lose a parent. How will Max react when he finds out she spoke to Simon?

Simon is the only person at work she is talking to because she is yelling at everyone else. That leads to her workers (Michael Thomas Grant, Kapil Talwalkar, Harvey Guillén) singing It’s a Hard Knock Life from Annie to her, and it is eggcellent. This is one of my favorite numbers to date, and I love almost all of them. You can tell that they all had a lot of fun singing and dancing to the show tune.

All of this leads to an epic moment that you don’t want to miss.

If you are not watching this show, then you need to check it out. It has been television’s bright spot during the pandemic. Don’t we all need a bright spot these days?


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.


Hello Dolly, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is back for season two!
January 5th, 2021 under Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist. [ Comments: none ]

NBC gave us something to sing about last year, and that thing was Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. Tonight at 8p, it is back for a second season.

When the show last left off, Zoey (Jane Levy) just lost her father, and her heart songs were silenced. What are heart songs? You see, Zoey went to get an MRI. While she was in the machine, there was an earthquake. Ever since then, she can hear people’s thoughts because they sing and dance for her. Now that her heart is broken, so is the record player in her head.

It has been seven weeks since her father and the music died. She is finally ready to get back to work. However, when she gets there, everything is different. Max (Skylar Astin), who was fired, has been replaced by George (Harvey Guillén). Leif (Michael Thomas Grant), who has been filling in for her, ordered everyone standing desks. SPRQ Point is in financial trouble because their boss is under house arrest. If that is not enough, Zoey’s boss (Lauren Graham) offers her a big promotion. Zoey is not sure she was ready to get back to work. What is she going to do?

Thankfully, things are a little better at home since she moved back in with her mom (Mary Steenburgen). Her mom is trying to get everything in order, but it is not easy. Luckily, she has her newborn grandson to keep her busy. David (Andrew Leeds) and Emily (Alice Lee) are adjusting to being new parents. David wishes he could have gotten some advice from his dad on how to be a better dad before he passed away. Thankfully, there is a way.

Talking about ways, Zoey is still involved in her three-way, well triangle, with Max and Simon (John Clarence Stewart). The two men and Mo (Alex Newell) have gotten close while they have been there for Zoey. It is time for Zoey to make a decision; who will she choose? Are you Team Max or Team Simon?

All of this goes on with the help of some great musical numbers. Zoey gets her heart songs back. You wouldn’t have this show if she didn’t have that ability. And we have the ability to sit back and watch this show that tugs at our heartstrings.

You seriously do not want to miss this show. It was last year’s best new show, and it is just getting better. That is why NBC paired it with This Is Us. They are giving it the respect it deserves. Therefore, you should tune in. What else there to watch? Even if there was, this is a much better show.


NBC is letting Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist shine
November 20th, 2020 under Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist. [ Comments: none ]

Last year’s new broadcast shows were lackluster. Then came Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. The musical dramedy is about a woman named Zoey (Jane Levy), who after an accident in an MRI machine during an earthquake, starts to see and hear people sing their thoughts. The show is a diamond in the rough, but NBC buried it on Sunday nights.

That was last season. Starting on January 5th, they are moving the show to Tuesday nights before This Is Us. That is a huge vote of confidence for the darling series that you need to be watching.
