ZOEY'S EXTRAORDINARY PLAYLIST
January 12, 2021  | By David Bianculli

NBC, 8:00 p.m. ET

 
If you avoided this series last season, and even avoided last week’s Season 2 premiere, it may be because the premise sounded just too weird or cute: a young woman awakens from a brain scan to discover she can intermittently see and hear the inner emotions of people around her, as conveyed in song and dance. Or you may have just thought there’s nothing worth watching on the commercial broadcast networks any more. Either way, in this case, you’re wrong – and I urge you to watch this touching, tender series, if only to witness Jane Levy’s marvelous performance as Zoey. This season, she’s mostly on her own, having lost two mentors very important to her – but Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist, like its title character, is not only unusually sensitive and empathic, but inspirationally resilient.
