    Just binged watched this entire show and absolutely loved it. At first, it was cute, but somewhere along the way I really grew to love it. Jane Levy is INCREDIBLE.

    I’m four episodes into this and still not sure how to feel. Jane Levy is very very good, and her talent and overall ‘vibe’ is so great. Her inevitable Globe nomination will be extremely deserved. The Mo character is one we’ve seen before, but Alex Newell has so much charisma and energy that he really pulls it off and makes Mo my favorite. Lauren Graham is fun too, but I want meatier and stronger roles for her. The dad story is so personal and tragic, but everything else feels a little by-the-numbers in comparison. My least favorite part is actually the songs. The premise of the show is so fun and I love the idea, but I just can’t stand the song choices they’ve made. I really wish they’d taken the time to write original songs, as tunes like “Roar” and “Wrecking Ball” undercut the genuine emotions of the scene with, for lack of a better word, complete cheesiness. I really like Zoey’s inner conflict, and the show reminds me a lot of The Good Place in its ‘doing the right thing and helping the people around us’ theme. I’ll probably end up finishing this just because it’s a breezy and light story I can scroll on my phone during, and I’m enjoying it, but I won’t be rooting for it to win any awards soon. But then again, I’ve only heard amazing things about the second half, so I will probably hold all final judgments until I’ve seen “Zoey’s Extraordinary Glitch” and “Zoey’s Extraordinary Dad”.
