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
Originally titled Zoe Bean, but was changed to better reflect the ensemble nature of the show's cast of characters. Oddly enough the title was shortened to Zoe... when the series was revamped for season two. See more »
Some people might not like the wacky humor that is the best part of "Zoe, Duncan, Jack, and Jane," but I, for one, have not seen a show this clever and side-splittingly funny in a long time. I introduced it to my brother, uncle, and two cousins this summer, and they fell in love with it as well. They couldn't get enough of it, and were disappointed that there were only 13 episodes! Zoe (Selma Blair) is quirky and lovable, Jane (Azura Skye) is smart and funny, Jack (Michael Rosenbaum) is the money-loving adorable twin of Jane, and Duncan (David Moscow) is just a cute dimwit that you can't help loving. My favorite character, though, would have to be Breeny (Sara Rue--who's gone on to do the WB's "Popular".) The coolest thing about this show is that although the actors may not be teenagers (except for Azura Skye), they sure can act! These characters are just the best on TV and so is this show.
