Why I dont like Zoey... (Spoilers.. I guess)


Before you bash me, like most people do when they dont know anything, listen:
I know its like "you dont like the main character??" no I dont. They made Zoey tooo perfect, it bugs me. Shes always right, has the perfect boyfriend and hes even not enough (James) her ideas are always "omg perfect!" shes too dramatic over the stupidest things (balloon episode- her secret was soo stupid to leave PCA over, and the prom episode when she refused to go by herself- suck it up and dance the night away!), everyones Zoeys best friend, shes of course an A student, and she knows how to solve everyones problems but she has to be 100% in their buisness all the time.And at times shes self-involved. I dont like it. She has no flaws! Its annoying, everyone has problems and shes the one who gets to point and go "I have no problems, hahaha"

If you dont like me now, then dont comment this is my opinion, Im open to discussion but if it starts going "your stupid, your reasons are stupid or N00B!" then dont bother posting just to get it deleted ok???

My favorite characters are Michael and Quinn.
Someone else not like Zoey? Why?

nothing wrong with ur opinion mate... am sorry.... but i think u r soo much in love with jamie-lynn that you can only see her as perfect... she's not a good actress...

I agree.
I don't like that they made Zoey SO perfect, but either way I like her character.
In some episodes (can't remember which ones) she has some flaws, but not serious flaws, but I think one of her flaws (You do not have to agree with me, here!) is the way she treats her friends, sometimes she yells at them when she gets frustrated, or stuff like that.

reply

I like Zoey's character... But it IS a bit weird how she's soooo perfect AND like every guy in the school would apparently kill to date her. I keep getting this weird "there's something about ZOEY" feeling when I watch the show.

reply

Yeah..the only reason I watch the show is because the supporting cast is extremely entertaining. Spears.....yuck. I just can't stand her. Even her accent bugs me. Idk. It's irritating, though.

How insightful of you to realize that I'm a CONSERVATIVE. Go be a hippie or whatever in the woods with those chicks from 'Without a Paddle' and leave me alone.

If my governmental oppressiveness is 'filthy', then what the f--- are you doing?? What's that called?? It's called HYPOCRISY!! The mark of a true idiotic liberal.

I'm so jealous of your creative signature. Real mature. Real impressive.

Alright. When we become Communist and there's a tax revolt and civil war under Obama Bin Laden, we'll all know that liberalism was right. Sure. Shutup, you freaking idiot. I can't believe that you're even wasting your time bothering me if I'm so wrong. Back off, you anti-American Marxist.

Dude. I'm serious. Leave me alone.

Well that was a heated political discussion.
TSRawr, I COMPLETELY agree with you! I freaking hate Zoey because she is WAY too perfect, she never does ANYTHING wrong. It's so freaking annoying and obnoxious and that's NOT how real life is. And I hate how like every guy is after her too.
UGH!!!

i don't not like her. she just isn't my favourite. my favourite is quinn.

reply

I like Zoey, but my favourite was Nicole, she was great as the boy-crazy comic relief character and Zoey's best mate. ^_^

reply

Haha, yeah you couldn't really go wrong with Nicole. She was comical. Quinn was awesome too, I liked her in the later seasons the most. =P
I just don't know what to think about Zoey... she just wasn't much of a developed character, I guess. The main character should be more developed, have depth, and have a better, more memorable personality than Zoey had... she can be annoying that way sometimes... but yeah, that's what I think. Don't think I hate her or anything though. I've seen worse. XP

i know! i liked lola better

lmfao I wouldn't pick any of them Zoey Lola Nicole NOR Quinn. Dana was the one who I really enjoyed, she should have stayed for all the seasons but
I'm really not sure what had happened to her. And LMAO they only put in that procrastination, "corn chip toe", and "stuff like that" only got put in the show so people wouldn't get bored of her perfect-like image. Have you even realized that Zoey get's to tell off other boys, while Nicole, Quinn, Lola and all those other girls just stay back? She's selfish and she's annoying. Her "accent" is just as annoying as Miley Cyrus'. Quite frankly Zoey 101 is a waste show, and the whole Quinn and Logan thing is way beyond gross. I guess the writers ran out of love interests, so lame. And just like what the other poster said, I only watch this show because of the supporting cast [Michael, Logan, James]. They're pretty much the only ones that are bearable.

The picture of some little girl showing her bare butt on a sun tan lotion bottle was her at four years old. I think she made waaaay too big a deal out of it- much like everything else she does.

Yes, I'm a girl.

reply

I agree with the OP actually, they made her like, have no personality almost. She had not enough bad sides and not enough shining awesome sides. She was just the eh character in the show.

This just made me realize I'm a loser for being a 17 year old girl and over-analyzing Zoey 101.

reply

I completely and utterly agree. I sometimes think "Would it kill them to let someone else have a good idea?" like someone ELSE could have suggested the People Auction or becoming a "guy".


Lola, Quinn Chase, Michael = Best Characters On The Show






Jordan =]


BTW Can't Stand James. He is just so "perfect" Mr and Mrs James Perfect. :(

reply

I cannot stand zoey. and sadly she's the least superficial of every other character on this show.

She's beyond perfect, her friends lives (and pretty much every aspect of PCA) revolve around her and what she's doing, she's good at EVERYTHING, her boyfriend is perfect, she's stick thin, and everyone loves her.

Then again, this show strives to be as superficial and unrealistc as humanly possible, so it's not much of a suprise....

I thought I was the only one!

I also like Dana and don't care for Quinn/Logan.

reply

hahaha you guys are right! its a cool show but really, life isn't perfect ALL the time and not everything works out the way it does on the show. Thats the only flaw I find in the show. maybe if she had the "Lizzie McGuire" feel, where things DO go wrong and not everything works out for the main character, then we all could relate to it more.

reply

I agree Zoey isn't stick thin, Lola and Quinn are a lot smaller than her, Nicole was too. Not saying that she's fat. But Zoey had no personality, and they made her out to be perfect. Kids' networks tend to do that with their main characters.

I liked Lola way better then zoey...she was equally annoying as all of Zoey's cult followers, though.


and that "insaneley pretty, just like Zoey"...I can't even say anything over how (I don't know a word for it) that quote is....

I think Dan Schneider has a thing for Mary Sue characters, for example, Carly on iCarly.

reply

I honestly kind of agree with you Zoey is pretty bland...she wasnt very colorful in personality but i dont agree that everyone in the series liked her there werent very many put what show these days is all about the people they dont get a long with? For example Chase's girlfriend absolutely hates Zoey, even though its only for a couple of episodes before Chase ends things still...the thing i dont like about Zoey 101 is that no one realizes that she is acting on instinct she has no prior experience she got the part because her sister wrote her that song "Follow Me" and she sung it at auditions and they gave her the part for the connections too dont get me wrong she is great at singing and a semi good actress but its britney that got her sister the spot light not jamie herself. My favorite characters personally are Dustin because he is like every boy that age...wants to be an individual and away from the parents and ABSOLUTELY hates having his sister help him with everything. I also like Michael and Quinn for the same reason most people do they were the most colorful and exciting characters in the series...but before anyone says get out of here we dont like haters...i actually enjoyed watching the show with my niece...it taught her to love the things in her life she has, try to help others, and she can have the life she wants if she tries...so it has some moral basis to it and i think thats why a lot of people liked or watched it atleast...
