I’m sure I’ve ranted at you from time to time over the past two years about my favorite new television show in forever, “Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist.” I will do so again tonight.
It was the second season finale and the writers and actors and crew and everyone were hitting on all cylinders, with a final scene “mike drop” that has my head spinning. It was WONDERFUL!!!
Fantastic music – once we get a couple bars in and I realize what the song is, the “heart songs” are almost always perfect for the scene and the characters. Characters that you just want to have be your best friends. Plotting and story lines that suddenly just all fall together and you want to cry and scream and it’s like that moment at the end of “The Sixth Sense,” or even better, “The Arrival.” Amazing choreography and dance scenes.
There’s no word on whether or not the show will be picked up for a third season, but if there’s an ounce of good and justice left in the world (and I know, just look at the freakin’ headlines for the last two years and don’t get me started, but still, without hope…) it will get renewed. The NBC “upfront” conference is supposed to be tomorrow morning, so we may know more tomorrow.
Meanwhile, if you haven’t listened to my incredibly well-informed opinions of the show so far, you can catch it on the Peacock streaming service and they said something tonight in the commercials about a marathon showing of the first two seasons on the E! Network on the next few weeks. I can’t think of a better way to spend twenty-four hours.
