Like Tom Hanks, Brooke Elliott has "that certain something", that veryfew actors have. It has to do with Likability. She exudes a verypleasant charm. She makes it easy to believe that a sweet,model-aspiring airhead has inhabited a high power attorney and hasaccess to her rapid-firing brain cells. I like it that the Jane Bingumcharacter has a golden moral compass and yet is playful like a Sex inthe City girl. Kudos to the creator and writers for creating acharacter that is like a real person. The Jane Bingum character revealsgreat sensitivity and vulnerability along with areas of great strengthand fortitude. This is no "one note" character like the many thatusually populate series TV shows. Drop Dead Diva is both high drama andwry comedy by virtue of its excellent writers. But, where would thisshow be without Brooke Elliott? It will be interesting to see what shedoes next. I predict a smart producer or director will cast her in amovie on the big screen very soon.

OK, you KNOW if Margaret Cho is involved, there will be some decentwriting. As much as I like the show, Cho's is my favorite character.She fires up any scene she's in. Wait, no Fred is my favoritecharacter. And Grayson. And Jane! Everybody's interesting, seriously,and the acting is really right on. The premise is Freaky Friday meetsLA Law, but add in a guardian angel, smart chicks, models, and freshstory lines.. and hey, you've got my attention. Drop Dead Diva isunpredictable, but with the likable hooks surrounding romance,achieving partner, and beauty. You can stream it on Netflix, which isslightly addictive. So beware.

Drop Dead Diva is a cross between Ghost Whisperer, Close to Home and Ally McBeal. There's nothing original on television any more.

So many movies about fat girls fall flat (such as Phat Girlz) so when I first heard of this show and its premise, I was very skeptical at first. Even with a good premise, a show can fail very hard.Fortunately, this is NOT such a show. You get this gorgeous, 24 year old model who dies in a traffic accident, and a little mishap in Heaven (or beyond, or however you see it) along with a bit of stubbornness on Deb's part causes her to crash back to Earth - in a body entirely not her own. She is now stuck as 32-year old Jane, a woman who might not be gorgeous but is very smart.Some of that smartness rubs over onto Deb, who gains surprising insights with her new brain. Deb does the best she can in the body she is now stuck with, and of course, this leads to some funny and/or sad situations. What is especially bitter for Deb is that she works with Grayson, her finance. At least, her finance back when she was still known as 'Deb'. As Jane, she has to start all over, which is so hard because she longs to tell him the truth.There's a lot more to this show than just this, each episode also focuses on a legal case (or two) and Deb, with Jane's intellect and legal experience, must combine this with her own knowledge of things from her model days.Overall, this is a very good show - better than what I would have expected. For some, this will have a 'chick flick' feel to it. If you absolutely hate that kind of stuff, then you won't enjoy this, but rest assured, this show has enough serious and thought-provoking moments to make it a solid series.

We watch this regularly and enjoy the actors. Given the fact that theshow purports to be set at a law firm, though, you'd think that theywould at least try to get SOMETHING about the law right. NOTHING inthis show even approaches legal reality. I'm willing to cut shows someslack, but honestly--every show includes something that would getseveral people disbarred and misstates several aspects of the law.Tonight: three strikes=three violent crimes, not check bouncing. Youcan't get medical records like that; and it's a federal crime to letyour boyfriend look at them, even if you get them. Defending a clientwho is on trial for robbing you? With all those producers, you'd thinkthey could at least think about someone -- a legal secretary?--whocould save them from some of the more outrageous errors. But they getsome judges right.

This review is from: Drop Dead Diva: The Complete First Season (DVD) It was great to go back to the beginning of this funny program. Brooke Elliott is so amazing and such a great actress. Can't wait till the second season comes out.

Someone heard the old line about a thin woman trapped in a fat woman'sbody and took it literally. In "Drop Dead Diva," a Lifetime series thatbegins on Sunday, an aspiring model and airhead named Deb (BrookeD'Orsay) dies in a car crash and is transported Â through a bungled actof divine intervention Â to the body of a recently deceased lawyer,Jane (Brooke Elliott), who is smart, fat and frumpy. The trading-placesformula is put to use here in a weight-conscious comedy, a "FreakyFriday" mind-body exchange that measures the eternal contest betweenbrains and beauty by the pound.Deb, trapped in a Lane Bryant physique, doesn't lose her own shallow,bubbly personality. When Deb awakens in a hospital bed and discoversthat her once-taut stomach is now a pillowy protrusion of flab, sheshrieks at her guardian angel, "You sent me to hell?" But she alsoassumes Jane's high-powered brain and legal expertise. Deb discoversthat while she now craves donuts and cheese dip, her mind also savors acomplicated and compelling legal case. Basically she thinks like Ellein "Legally Blonde," only she looks like Camryn Manheim on "ThePractice."And while the presumption that a woman can be either brainy orbeautiful, or in this case, good or thin, but not both, is a bitprimitive, the series has humor and charm beneath its facile message,in large part (no disrespect intended) to a subtle, winning performanceby Ms. Elliott.It's gotten harder than ever to find an imperfect heroine in a serieswho is actually flawed. More than ever these days, television suffersfrom casting dysmorphia; it repeatedly takes a slovenly, gluttonous,character and casts an exquisitely groomed, Pilates-toned actress inthe part.One of the running jokes of both "30 Rock" and "The New Adventures ofOld Christine" is that the characters played by Tina Fey and JuliaLouis-Dreyfus are disarmingly sloppy, out of shape and addicted to junkfood Â and wine, in the case of Ms. Louis-Dreyfus. It's a strain whenboth actresses are so petite, pretty and fit.Debra Messing may have started the trompe l'oeil trend in "Will &Grace," since she too was a whippet-thin actress playing a slovenlyovereater. But the hypocrisy grows ever more insulting Â a cognitivediss. Even TNT, which takes pride in badly behaved heroines Â aslatternly sot on "Saving Grace," a sweetsaholic on "The Closer" Âassigns those roles to improbably slender, well-preserved actresseslike Holly Hunter and Kyra Sedgwick.And when a comedy does feature a female lead who is not conventionallypretty, that becomes the raison d'Ãªtre of the series, as in "UglyBetty."

This review is from: Drop Dead Diva: The Complete First Season (DVD) My mother and I LOVE this show. It is a really interesting twist on coming back from the dead and learning about yourself or who you thought you were. Brooke is FANTASTIC in portraying a super smart lawyer who is wardrobe challanged until the sweet super model takes over and changes her whole outlook. I would highly recommend this to people as it is cute and funny yet is dramatic enough to tug on your heart strings. It also helps that Margaret Cho is in this as I think she is hilarious! I am not one for lawyer type shows but this has just the right touch of comedy and drama.
acheerforyou 28 April 2013
I Beyond LOVE this show! I can't believe I missed the entire 1stseason. Thank you Netflix for making it available as I would have neverknown about the show. It's my daily dose of laughter. Great cast andgood character development. OK, I have to ask about the episode withthe orange jail attire- seemed just like a Legally Blonde scenario.??Please don't stop making more episodes, I'm addicted. Everyone is socute...but it does seem that every show ends a little sad.Still...likin it, luvin it.I particularly enjoy watching a character who is funny and lighthearted, as well as smart and accomplished. The storyline is cute andsomehow doesn't seem too unbelievable (just imaginative.)

I simply love this new TV show and wish it would last for more thanjust a season or two like some other great shows I loved and that wereoff. Anyway, let's talk about Drop Dead Diva. Actually, my firstreaction to the show, or frankly to the TITLE of the show, was kind of"What a nonsense they're putting on". Hello!? I could not have beenwrong more here. Not a nonsense. Quite on the contrary. One can notonly get a nice law story per episode, but also gets a share of reallygreat performance here as well as really lovable characters. I lovedand love a lot of TV shows (most of them already ended), but since mylate teens I for the first time am really thrilled with the maincharacter of the TV show, as well as I can well put myself in almostevery position she's in (except, huh, for having your soul trapped in awrong body). It's like in many TV shows and movies we only get these'super white big smile nice body' actors and actresses which all lookgreat and at the same time almost the same and just as unreal as Santato any grown-up, but this time we are getting this new character whichis awesome, beautiful, and at the same time just like me, you orsomeone next to you. And I really love that. Long live the show asthere is one fan for you here already

This show was fresh, quirky and entertaining. The characters wereendearing and the plot left the viewers in constant hope that thesecret would come out. It was great to have a show where the leadcharacter was a normal, overweight person instead of Hollywood'sstandard 'size zero'. And it was always a nice surprise to hear thelead character sing as one often forgot how good her voice was inbetween the occasional musical outburst. I was sad to see the finalepisode tonight (in the UK) but was happy that the writers andproducers wrapped up the story instead of leaving it half told as manyshows often do. There was a frustrating twist at the end but it wasjust enough to leave the viewers to their imaginations.
26 April 2013
I started watching Drop Dead Diva in it's third season. I am officially addicted so am coming back to watch what I missed in the previous seasons. It's cute, warm, clean, smart, sometimes indulgently cheesy and absolutely perfect! In fact, it's so perfect, I just know that it will be taken off of the season line up soon. Anything that good without some vile and vulgar liberal agenda doesn't last long in TV land. But until then I'm going to enjoy!!
masterandoverlord 26 April 2013
Fox has put on some really bad shows on the air, so it passing on apilot should tell you something. That's what happened to this piece oftrash. In fairness, the problem with this show is probably theexcruciating level of annoyance I feel for the lead character/actress.I'm not a violent person but something about this woman makes me wantto punch her in the throat. I don't know what it is but I really don'tlike this woman. I don't know if it's how she delivers her lines orperhaps she's just one of those chubbos who think they're hot. I can'texactly put my finger on it. Some people like to watch fat, annoyingwomen. If you're one, then you'll probably like this show.
25 April 2013
If Legally Blonde were a tv series and had a thousand times more heart, this would be it. So much fun, so much fashion, so much fricking awesome singing. Can't wait for season two!
24 April 2013
This review is from: Drop Dead Diva: The Complete First Season (DVD) The DVD works fine....and having already seen this series, there were no surprises. Highly recommend for anyone that wants to be entertained.
AnnaShade 24 April 2013
This show is fun if you're looking for something light as a puff pastryand not too accurate on current U.S. law. It has the creative premisethat a model died and wound up in the body of a slightly frumpy,brilliant lawyer.The only not-quite issue I have with it is that a lot of the actorshave crazy faces(particularly Jane and Deb). When they're sad or happyor something, their eyes get huge and they open their mouths kind ofwide in odd grins or sobs. It's not bad acting per se, but rather howthe show is (over the top and light).So, I'd recommend it. It's fun if you're looking for something easy anda bit quirky to watch.
23 April 2013
There aren't a lot of shows I can watch with both my elderly mom and my teenage kids -- but this is definitely one of them. It's got it all -- heart, laughs, romance and a very upbeat message. I've seen all the episodes on TV but I highly recommend this boxed set.

Love the series, but there are problems with the "legal" writing. Ifyou are going to write about lawyers in a law office, someone shouldadvise the director on legal facts aspects. While considerable licenseis often appropriate in writing for a fictional show, isn't somerelationship to reality to be expected. "Do Over" broadcast on SundayJuly 27, 2009, had a bunch of errors -- 1. The Judge in the medical malpractice trial against a psychiatristwho cured a client's husband of multiple personality disorder, butapparently cured the "wrong identity", therefore Plaintiff's attorneysmade a motion to amend the complaint include "wrongful death", whichthough silly, it was ingenious and entertaining. However, my objection comes not from that, but from a remark by theJudge about being frustrated with his calendar of recent cases when hesays he's been handling "BANKRUPTCY cases", which is clearly FALSEsince only federal Bankruptcy Judges hear Bankruptcy cases. No statecivil court judge ever hears "bankruptcy cases". Hey, it's okay to be"silly", but please, don't write "stupid". Any lawyer knows this.2. "HOS" (Hours of Services) for truck Drivers are regulatedspecifically by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA)under federal regulations at 49 CFR Part 395, which is admittedly partof the USDOT. It would have been better to be a little more factual. 3. When STACY supposedly got a Manager to accept a "rush" shipment ofrotting cantaloupes on the Long Beach dock and truck them to Chicago inbreach of HOS regulations, there was an obvious "out" -- team drivers,who would each have 11 hours to drive, and after the first driver hadfinished, he or she could refresh the 11 hours by spending 10 hourssleeping in an over-the-road tractor's sleeper bunk. Drivers are paidby the mile, so a Team could legally drive the 1,746 miles straightthrough to Chicago on time. The HOS problem arises when a TruckingCompany expects a "solo" driver to drive more than 11 hours withoutspending 10 hours straight resting in the sleeper before legallydriving another 11 hours again. The minimum hours for this trip wouldbe 29.1, which is 3 shifts for a solo plus two 10-hour refresh shiftsin the bunk sleeping. A team can do it in 30 hours, but legally a solodriver would have to take about 50 total hours. A good line in the script would be for management to say they have "noTeams available, only solo Drivers", and that it would ordinarily takea solo driver averaging 60 mph a total of 50 hours or 2 days (at 24hours each) because of HOS regulations. Then Stacy would have to offer a "bribe" to the manager to expedite her"perishable melons" or she would lose a lot of money, so instead of$3,400 fare, she'd be willing to pay $5,000 cash if managementguarantees to get the melons there within "40" hours. The writersmissed the opportunity to point out that Driver being paid by the milewould not benefit from violating the HOS, which is why they werepressured to do so in order to keep their jobs. Such a breach ofFederal regulations would bring criminal charges against both theTrucking Company and the Driver who violated HOS regs.4. The 2nd legal error was when the other female attorney asked thepsychiatrist about which "identity" wrote her checks in payment ofservices and signed a "consent" form, and when it turned out to be theplaintiff's named husband, the lawyer accused the doctor of committing"fraud". Interesting, but very much BACKWARDS. The doctor could acceptpayment from whomever, if anyone committed "fraud" it was the Patient,the plaintiff's HUSBAND, and NOT the doctor. This is taking "poeticlicense" a little too far. It is, however, rather ingenious from awriting standpoint, but it is still backwards and wrong. It would havebeen more interesting to point out that since the Wife had PAID for thetreatment, and the Husband had signed a RELEASE or CONSENT for theDoctor to talk to Wife about progress of Treatment, that the Doctor hada DUTY to tell the wife about the problem with the double identity andthat she had married a Fictitious person, and the Real person wassomeone else - the 2nd identity, and... that if she cured the Man, shewould lose her Husband. What a Twist that would be. AND, the fact thatthe Doctor slept with the Man to whom the Plaintiff was married -- wasin fact actionable Medical Malpractice and Adultery (differentidentities, "they share a penis"--cute, very cute). 5. Even a brand new lawyer would know how to handle a witness whochanges testimony that is previously on the record. Now here is a placewhere stretching the law by writers can hardly be avoided since thepurpose is to get JANE to fly off the handle at the witness who "DEB"feels is obviously lying. While "silly, it works and should be allowed.Otherwise, some of the written legal predicaments though silly arerather ingenious as a story line. But, hey, let's try to be morefactual. In fact, in both cases, each judge could have called a recessand encouraged "settlement" negotiations in light of "surprisetestimony". Judges have been known to encourage settlement by saying"why don't you try to settle this case, because I don't think eitherside is going to like what could happen if I have to decide theissues." Interestingly, there are real world things that writers could have usedabout trucking and law that they simply missed because they have noexpertise as an Attorney or as a Driver (trucker). In a show aboutLawyers or Drivers, hire some experts to help your writers. The writingis already excellent, but it could be way better.

Oh Lifetime, I see where you are going with thisÂ Don't be a bitch andgive me "big girls are entitled to everything glorified models have."I have watched enough television to know that I only watch Lifetime fortheir reruns and Project RunwayÂ The phrase Lifetime Original is justcacophony to my ears.HAHAA, Drop Dead Diva? In my humble opinion, Lifetime has the worsttitles and the worst promotional trailers for their original series.They remind me of trashy romance novels: predictable and worse yetgirlishly predictable. As a semi-intelligent vagina carrier, I aminsulted.However, with the insistence from a person I only met at aSupercomputing Conference, I decided to check this baby outÂ And I mustsay, DAMN YOU LIFETIMEÂ you made me rediscover this positive, cuddly,wishing for the small dog mentality that the real world has beaten outof me. This sucks.Drop Dead Diva is heartwarming and cute. Damn I love it. It has justamount of charm and lack of complete predictability.. that I fall inlove with the characters. Although it is not my all-time favorite, itexceeded my expectations. I only have a few quips with itÂ The story focuses on a vain model Deb who dies and soul is transferredinto a "fat," smart lawyer named Jane. Deb gets all of Jane's smartsbut keeps her own personality and memories.What bothers me is that this show emphasizes a skinny bitch learninghow it feels to be fatÂ But I must say, Jane is a hottie (faciallyspeaking and body wise, I'm pretty sure she's a plus size model). Alsothere is no mention of being overweight as a health issueÂ but that'snot my problem.My problem with it isÂ that there are many, many shots of Jane eatingfood, close up shots and etc. What point are they trying to make withthat one if the show wants to emphasize the importance of treating herlike an equal, despite her being overweight? There are several timesthat her eating has been a light point of the storyline.That aside. I like the show and the characters. Though I have my littlequips with the show and my bias towards Lifetime, I suggest this showto those who just want get a natural upper at the end of the day.Because this show will make you feel damn good about life.

This review is from: Drop Dead Diva: The Complete First Season (DVD) This is by far the best show I have ever seen on TV. It is witty, funny and emotional! The cast of characters bring different flavors to the pot but it all blends together VERY well. Written, directed and acted exceptionally well. Hope to see more seasons of this show! :)
