    Pilot Episode:



    I was never one who was into musicals (never saw Glee), but ever since Hamilton came around, I've been really getting into it.

    Anyways, when I first saw the promos for Zoey, I thought it would be a 30-minute comedy. I didn't realized it would be search a tear jerker, especially with the scene with her father.

    Even though the Pilot didn't really show it, the main focus of the show seems to be like God Friended Me, where she goes around listening to people's thought and helping them.

    I like musicals and it doesn't bother me when people burst in song and dance for no apparent reason. I thought it was an interesting twist where Zoey is the only one who can hear the singing. I agree the scene with her father was very moving.

    I gave it a shot even though the previews didn't wow me, and I really liked it!

    Weird that the real season doesn't start until mid February. Maybe they are giving people a chance to check it out and talk about it? Like they knew the preview wasn't the best. lol

    I'm in!

    Recorded, but not yet watched. The promos were just interesting enough to make me curious. I was the same way with Perfect Harmony. I've really enjoyed it so far, so it'll probably be cancelled.

    Reminds me most of Eli Stone. Loved that show. This was off to a good start.

    I don't know if I'm all the way in, but I'm at least onboard for another couple episodes.

    I like the aspect of her hearing other people sing, such as the Mad World scene. But for her to hallucinate dancing as well seemed a bit much.

    But I enjoyed it. A series of flash mobs. :)

    I liked it. Good choice of songs. And Lauren Graham.

    I saw an ad for the show earlier today while watching a recording from last week. Did a search on the TiVo but can't find any upcoming episodes. Are there more scheduled to air?

    Not until February 16. It's going to air on Sunday nights, so they're waiting until after the Super Bowl and Oscars (which are February 2 and 9 respectively) for it to show up in its regular time slot.

    I'm not sure why they decided to air the preview episode over a month before its regular debut.

    Probably because all the other shows hadn’t started their second half of the season yet. I’d bet they repeat the pilot when it goes regularly.

    It was hilarious when Max (Skylar Aston) started singing the last number, and Zoey says "I don't think I know this one". Neither did anyone I was watching with. Then I burst into the chorus of "I Think I Love You" right in sync with Skylar. God I'm old. :)

    Also, it's great to see all those musical theater folks getting so much screen time. This is going to be fun. OnePass created.

    The ultimate stalker song:

    I only wanna make you happy and if you say "hey go away" I will
    But I think better still I'd better stay around and love you

    Nah, not even close...



    Based on actual stalker letters to her. He then had the nerve to sue for plaigirism, before ultimately killing himself.

    It is stalkerish because he says he thinks it’s better he stays even though he says he will go away? Voicing a thought is being a stalker????

    Yup. It's more than voicing a thought. He says his love is the most important thing, regardless of how she feels.
