And just like that, CENTRAL PARK is back turning in mediocre musical television. In another flashback-heavy episode, audiences learn how Owen proposed to Paige. Unfortunately, the songs and musical style are as underwhelming as his generic proposal.

Elsewhere, Bitsy and Molly strangely bond over funny illustrations. Could this be plot momentum to have anything happen in season 2? I don’t know since the show doesn’t explore it further and focuses more on the Owen storyline. 🤦‍♂️

Look, I’m all for heavy flashback episodes and quick, witty one-liners, which CENTRAL PARK has now mastered. Yet, the show continues to be about nothing. I “propose” it figures out what story it wants to tell and take the audiences somewhere besides big musical numbers (see Apple TV+’s SCHMIGADOON for how to do that).

It’s available to skip on Apple TV+.
