What We’re Watching: ZEP “Zoey’s Extraordinary Girls’ Night” and Veronica Mars “Debasement Tapes”
On this week's entertainment-themed Round 2, Zoey's powers weighed heavily on her as she tried to help her sister-in-law, Emily, with a serious problem--while her mom was out on the town with Bernadette Peters. In Neptune, it was another case-of-the-week, but it involved a fading rock star played by Paul Rudd, so we'll take it. And we think Keith should let Vinnie Van Lowe have the sheriff's job if he really wants it. Next week, Zoey's Extraordinary Playlist is off, so we'll watch the next two episodes of Veronica Mars ("I Know What You'll Do Next Summer" and "Weevils Wobble But They Don't Go Down") along with the accompanying episode of the Veronica Mars Investigations podcast, "I Know Weevil's Wobble Tapes."
