[ # ] Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist will bring out the music in us
February 16th, 2020 under NBC, Peter Gallagher, Ted Danson Mary Steenburgen


Ever since NBC introduced us to Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist a few weeks ago, we have been waiting for the second episode to air. Tonight at 9p (after a repeat of the series premiere), it is finally airing and you better get ready to sing and dance.

The episode starts off with Zoey (Jane Levy) waking up and having the music in her. Now, that she knows what her day has in store for her, it is time for work. Things are tough because her team is not accepting her as their boss. While she is trying to get them to focus on the job, her BFF Max (Skylar Astin) starts to sing the Jonas Brothers’ Sucker to her.

She is not into him like that, so she brings her confidante and neighbor Mo (Alex Newell) to the coffee shop, which is her haunt with Max, to try and see if the barrister in interested in her good friend. While they are there, the coffee shop breaks out into song and Mo tries to see and hear what Zoey is experiencing. Mo does not, and is no closer to understanding what is happening to Zoey.

While they are at a loss for understanding what is going on, Zoey’s family has a better understanding of what is going on in her dad’s head. Mitch’s (Peter Gallagher) new medicine is giving him some more mobility and her brother, David (Andrew Leeds), has found a way to help him communicate. David gave his dad a buzzer to buzz once for yes and twice for no. It seems like a great idea until his wife (Mary Steenburgen) needs more than a yes or no answer from, and he cannot give it to her. However, he can give it to Zoey in a song. What does that song mean, something no daughter wants to know about her parents.

In a time when shows are all dark and gloomy, Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist finds a way to bring us joy. It is an endearing show with characters you root for and sing along with. So much so, I want a Mo in my life. Everyone needs a Mo. Alex Newell is the brightest star among several shining stars. I cannot get all of the heartfelt acting and singing that is done on this show. There are plenty of surprise singers on it like Gallagher and Steenburgen. You could not ask for a better cast than the one they got for ZEP.

Fall in love with all of them tonight at every Sunday at 9p. Or every day because I cannot stop watching this show. It is that freaking amazing!
