Zoey's Extraordinary Christmas

It's winter break for me, so the blog has shifted to the "summer schedule" (which doesn't even last for much of the summer anymore). Subbing stories to resume upon the return of school in January.

I recommended Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist back in April 2020. Alas, it has now been cancelled. 

But, before it was cancelled, it had two lovely seasons. And just in time for Christmas, they released a final one-hour forty-minute Christmas special. It finishes off the series nicely. 

The show is about a computer programmer who works in San Francisco who through a mishap that only happens in fiction accidentally downloaded all the music to her brain while she was having an MRI. Following this, she gets to see her friends, family, coworkers, and random strangers break out into song. (The show is a musical.) She uses the knowledge of their "heart songs" to help them when she can. 

It aired on NBC, and it appears to still be on Peacock right now. But the finale movie was made for the Roku Channel exclusively, so it can be streamed there. And I just checked, the whole series is on the Roku Channel as well. (If you stream via a Roku device, you have access to the Roku Channel. I imagine if not, you should be able to access the app. Maybe?) 

Here's the trailer for the movie. 

Did you ever get a chance to catch the show? Are you binging interesting shows right now?

  2. All I can do is laugh at myself, I've never even heard of it! I'm watching an old cold case mystery sort of British show right now, on DVDs I got free off a neighboring curb!

    1. There's so many shows nowadays it's hard to keep track of them all.

  4. I'm not much of a binging person but I was recently gifted a subscription to Netflix and am starting to watch season 1 of the Great British Baking Show. Just in time, too, as Netflix is removing it after the end of this year.

  5. I haven't seen that show. Sounds interesting. The only show I binged on was "Invasion" on Apple TV. Guess I'm a science fiction geek that way.

    1. Sounds nice. I watched Downton Abbey when it was on originally, but I haven't seen it since. How are you enjoying it?
