Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane is a series that saw two lives. First: The first series follows four students (see title of show) at a private high school, Fielding Mellish Prep, in Manhattan. Even in the first series, the show focus was on Zoe (the other kids in the title are friends of Zoe's (Selma Blair), the twins Jack (a pre-Lex Luthor Michael Rosenbaum) and Jane (Azura Skye), and the loser Duncan (David Moscow)). The first series lasted 13 episodes before being halted for a remix. Second: The second series was just called "Zoe" and follows Zoe a few years later as a college student studying psychology. Most of the characters from the first 13 episodes, turn up in the second "Zoe" 13 episodes. Written by
"Zoe, Duncan, Jack & Jane" is the high school-version of "Will & Grace" and "Dharma & Greg" combined. Don't get me wrong, it's an excellent show.. for teenagers. I doubt anyone beyond 25 will like it, assuming they aren't nostalgic-crazed.
Also, when I think of Selma Blair, I think "Cruel Intentions", "Legally Blonde" and "Girl" (1998), not really the kind of character she portrays as "Zoe". If you're a fan of Selma Blairs' work, you should definitely try to check this series out. You'll see a side of her that, at least I, hadn't seen before.
Those of you that tries to remember where you've seen David Moscow, "Duncan", before, I can tell you it took me a good long while before I realized it's actually "Josh" from the blockbuster-hit "Big" with Tom Hanks back in 1988. He's all grown up!
