Zoey 101 is on TV for basically half an hour a week. Well, now you can watch it anytime you want. For a long time, your only alternative was the TV movie, Sping Break-up, which was out on DVD. But, after watching it seventeen times, it gets a little boring. Do you know how awesome it is to sit mindlessly for hours and hours watching season one reruns of Zoey 101? I do. Now you can too, starting February 13.
The show is about a girl named Zoey (played by Britney Spears' younger sister, Jamie Lynn Spears) who recently got accepted to a formerly all-boys boarding school. In the first season, she's still adjusting to the school, making friends, and dealing with cocky boys.
Not only does the DVD include the entire first season of Zoey 101 with episodes like "Spring Fling", where Drake Bell guest stars, and "Webcam", when Logan hides a webcam in the girls' lounge, but it also includes bonus features. It has the audition tapes of the cast. Want to see Erin (who plays Quinn) originally try out as Nicole? It shows the bloopers from season one, which are always fun to watch. But most importantly, it includes a never-before-seen new episode from season three.
The only problem was the fact that they tried to forget two former members of the cast. They showed the audition tapes of all the current cast members, but not the two they kicked off. Kristen Herrera, who played Dana, was kicked off for looking too old (which, after three years, still doesn't make sense, because she's the same age as the guy who plays Chase, Sean Flynn). Alexa Nikolas, who played Nicole for two seasons, quit or was fired – it's still unclear – for fueding with Jamie Lynn.
This is quite an insult to the two who were left out. I don't care if they aren't on the show now, they were in season one, so their audition tapes should be there. Also, on the cover they have season three cast pictures, so they are purposely not on the cover. There are season one and season two cast pictures. I've seen them. Why put season three pictures on a season one DVD? It's annoying that they are trying to forget about the two talented actresses.
Now, onto the new episode, called "Quarantine". All over the Internet, there are rumors about what this episode is suppose to be about. Some think Zoey and Chase are dating. No. This is wrong. I don't know how it got started, because Zoey is going on a date with some random new guy named Danny. So, basically, what happens is Quinn (Erin Sanders) is upset, because she thinks her boyfriend is cheating on her. So, she's doing a science experiment trying to create a new germ and accidently introduces it to her dorm room.
Zoey, Quinn, and Lola (Victoria Justice, not in season one) are quarantined in their dorm room. The guys, Chase, Michael (Chris Massey), and Logan (Matt Underwood), sneak into their room, being stupid enough to be quarantined. Everyone's got their own problems — Quinn's concerned Mark's cheating, Zoey doesn't want to miss her date, Lola keeps randomly screaming to prepare for a play, Michael's hungry, Chase thinks he's going to die… and Logan? Well, Logan is just looking at himself in a mirror. What else is new? Is Mark cheating? What will Chase think of Zoey's date? What is Dustin up to? You could wait until the episode premieres on TV or preorder the DVD now… your choice.
So, basically, the DVD rocks. New Episode. Bonus features. Whole first season. I do suggest you buy it. It's basically kept me entertained for eight hours so far and I'm not finished yet. So, if you'll excuse me I want to finish my Zoey 101 marathon.
