Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist: Season 2 Reviews

Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist carries on in its handling of grief and the strange feelings it dredges up, gently exploring the lonely space it occupies, the emptiness that hits like a punch to the gut, and the deep-seated pain it begets.

How is it that a show steeped in magical realism consistently manages to deliver some of the most authentic and realistic portrayals of humanity on television?

The story line is a glut of rom-com clichés, hardly worth tuning in for. And Jane Levy, who has shined in Suburgatory and, briefly, in Shameless, is a bit too weary-dreary as Zoey.

I don't know about you, but I'm just really glad this show is back on my television screen.

Just as delightful as the lovely first, if a little more somber.

All told, it's a frustrating experience. The amount Playlist gets right certainly outweighs its shortcomings. Those shortcomings, though, are virtually impossible to ignore.
