Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist: Fangirl Friday

This week isn’t about a band, but it is about a musical TV show. Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist. I originally started watching the show for Lauren Graham. Love her!!! Any show I’ve watched of Lauren’s has been great.

Gilmore Girls: My all-time favorite show ever, always has been ever since the first episode aired On October 5th 2000. I was only 10 years old at the time, and I didn’t understand most of the references in their fast-talking witty banter, but that didn’t matter, I loved it anyway.

I love rewatching Gilmore Girls now as I get older, its nice to finally be old enough…or cultured enough to catch the jokes. Some of them are still lost on me, but I’m pretty proud to admit that I understand most of them now.


After Gilmore Girls ended Lauren took on the role of Sarah Braverman on NBC’s Parenthood. Man! Parenthood was the best. It’s similar to This Is Us, in the way that it was very family oriented…and made you cry in some type of way during every episode. Which makes sense because This Is Us also airs on NBC.

Now Lauren plays Joan, on Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist; Joan is the boss of a Tech savvy company. She plays a sort of upright character, which is very different from the fun, silly Loralei Gilmore that I’m used to.

The show’s main character Zoey has be given a new gift of hearing people around her sing their inner feelings, thanks to a mishap in an MRI machine.

As much as I love music…I don’t like musicals, but I love Lauren, and have been a fan of Jane Levy (Zoey) ever since she played Tessa on Suburgatory. So I’m trying my best to make this work. With each episode I like it more, but I prefer the plot before and after all the singing and dance numbers. If you’re confused, watch an episode or two and you’ll see what I mean. However, I like the fact that she can finally communicate with her disabled Dad after receiving her newfound gift.


Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist Airs Sundays on NBC, 8:00 Central Time. This show can also be watched on Hulu.

Here’s a trailer:
