Yes, this week’s episode is better than the last, but at this stage, I’ve gone “Numb” describing the missed opportunities of this once brilliant musical comedy. Zoey might just be a “Soul Whose Intentions Are Good,” yet the creators cannot hide the fact they are in a sophomore slump.
In all second seasons audiences learn more about the supporting characters. Normally, the supporting characters narrative will help the protagonist in a bigger picture plot, that’s not the case with Zoey. I expect more from a show than dialogue like “If you don’t care so much, it won’t hurt so much” that should have been left “Unwritten.”
The only reason to tune in to Zoey is the award worthy dance choreography from Mandy Moore. Outside of that, this is a psychedelic “Trip” that audiences should skip.
It’s available on NBC / Peacock.
