What I’m Watching: Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist

Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist: Season 1, Episode 6 “Zoey’s Extraordinary Night Out” (B)

It’s a good thing that Simon decided to leave rather than stay and sleep with Zoey, but in a sense they may as well have since Jessica heard Zoey and her mom talking and assumes the worst anyway. That information couldn’t have come out in a worse way, and then Zoey had to go ahead and set the banner on fire before making a clumsy exit. It would have been smarter for Zoey to stay away from the party as she had originally planned, though she’s helpless to Joan’s whims, which in this case involved proving to her employees that she’s fun. That may have implications of its own when they go back to work, though I suspect it’s going to be much more awkward for Zoey and Simon. I like when characters who rarely interact on a show are given more of an opportunity to spend time together, and that’s happening in a major way for Max and Mo. Max was clueless to think that Autumn was just going to want to be friends after he broke up with her, and I enjoyed her coffee shop musical number that culminated in Max thinking he got the wrong drink because of the harsh name written on the cup. It was nice to see Mitch enjoying his visit from his good friend Paul, and his fall while Maggie was out isn’t likely to make her feel like she can ever leave again, though she’d be much better off finding regular care for him so that being with him all the time doesn’t end up being a crippling emotional burden.
