I have waited for ZOOEYS EXTRAORDINARY PLAYLIST to premiere and the first episode did not disappoint.

ZOOEY’S EXTRAORDINARY PLAYLIST showed all of us what it is like to return to the world after grieving a death or even a pandemic. All of the lost feelings Zooey tried to compartmentalize overflowed as she was forced to step outside and breathe fresh air once again.

The musical numbers were fantastic as always. They pushed the story forward and gave each main character a chance to showcase their talents. They surrounded Zooey with compassion and tough love so she was able to “carry on.”

Will ZOOEY make more champagne mistakes this season? I am sure she will, but I will be there for her as she navigates her journey with music and dance interludes.

It’s available to sing-along to on Peacock.
