What I’m Watching: Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist

Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist: Season 2, Episode 4 “Zoey’s Extraordinary Employee” (B+)

For being in control of an entire floor, Zoey doesn’t actually seem to be in charge of all that much, and her employees have a better idea of what’s going on than she does. It could be because her mind is always elsewhere, though in this case Mo’s overly strong drinks resulted in her getting way too drunk and accidentally calling George to rehire him thinking he was…Max? Or Simon? That’s not clear, but she did play it far too cool with Max, who wasn’t happy that he felt like he was the only one focused on the business, even though Mo was working his own particular brand of magic. Though it’s not a good idea for Simon to start a relationship with Tatiana for professional reasons, they did connect on a personal level and it could be good for him since, regardless of Zoey and Max not working out and Emily rooting for Team Simon, it doesn’t look like Zoey and Simon are going to happen anytime soon (also because Aidan is back, which is going to complicate things in a big way). Maggie and Roger, on the other hand, does seem like a more possible occurrence, especially if Jenna continues to whisper in Maggie’s ear that it’s a good idea. It’s nice to see David realize what he needed in his life and go for it, and I’m sure that being a stay-at-home parent will produce its own challenges. In embarrassing song recognition, I misattributed “Stronger” by Britney Spears to NSYNC after the first few lyrics George sang and was promptly ridiculed by my wife.
