It’s time for honesty for those reading my reviews of ZOEY. I do not like this show. Yet, I am such a musical lover that it doesn’t matter. I continue to look past the awful setups, including this week’s sitcom 🤮 double date with Zoey’s ex, Max. Why? The song and dance numbers are that good. Once again, the show carries the tunes despite the writing causing me to feel “Overwhelmed” with how to review it.
This week’s MVP is Haskins (David St. Louis) “Unwell” confessional. The ramifications it has on his relationship should play out like boring network TV, yet season 2’s MVP, Mo (Alex Newell) once again carries it.
Please “Don’t Stop Me Now” from my guilty pleasure confession. It’s “Never Enough” for me with broadway-style musicals and I will continue to “Stand Tall” to support content like THE GREATEST SHOWMAN and JULIE AND THE PHANTOMS. Zoey is not as good as either of those musicals, yet the supporting cast is likable enough. The problem? Everyone but Zoey continues to draw me back to complain, laugh, and smile at the rewarding 10 minutes of musical-inspired numbers.
It’s available on Peacock / NBC.
