Anyone watching this show the season finale was last night and I missed it cause I was in Vegas. Now I am bout to watch it =) Am I the only one who watches this show anyone else out there think that it's an okay show? If you guys have not watched it you guys should try watching its on the website mylifetime. Here's a little about the show

The show tells the story of a beautiful-but-vapid model wannabe, Deb, who has a fatal car accident and suddenly finds herself in front of Heaven's gatekeeper, Fred, who declares her a self-centered "zero." Outraged, Deb attempts to persuade Fred to return her to her shallow existence but is accidentally relegated to the body of the recently deceased Jane Bingum (Brooke Elliott). A brilliant, thoughtful and plus-size attorney with a loyal assistant (Margaret Cho), Jane has always lived in the shadow of her more comely colleagues, whereas Deb has always relied on her external beauty. Now, by a twist of fate and a bolt of divine intervention, Deb must come to terms with inhabiting Jane’s plus-size frame and learn to reconcile her beauty queen ways with her brilliant new mind. -Lifetime

I saw about one or two episodes, at the beginning of the season. I kinda liked it, thought some of the writing was smart, but overall it didn't hold my attention. But I was happy to see it aired. I thought they did a pretty good job with a sensitive subject.

I watched maybe 3 or 4 episodes, but it stopped holding my attention. I don't like the fact that she still has connections to her past life. It has made for too many awkward moments. I thought I would like the show, but I don't.

Aw, I love that show!

I love Drop Dead Diva! I really like Brooke Elliot. I'm glad to see a plus-size girl "get" to be attractive and smart for once! I think she dresses cute, too!:)

That show is awesome and I never miss it!

I love Drop Dead Diva, as well! I think the story line is cute. Brooke Elliot plays a mean Jane!

Decided to edit to say they better bring back Fred. I think the Stacey/Fred subplot was adorable!

LOVE DDD!!!!! I miss Fred though. I was disappointed when he first went off then a few episodes later he came back and then left again! Grr. I loved Fred.

I love the show, too--which means it won't be around very long, I'm afraid.

I haven't gotten to watch Sunday's episode. I dvr'd it, just haven't had a chance to watch it yet.

Well I watched the season finale the other day it was interesting I hope she really doesn't leave the law firm. I also want Fred back too!! He had an adorable role and I hope he comes back next season =) *Crosses finger* I also want Grayson to figure out that Jane is really Deb, but if that ever happens I think there will be no more storyline to go on with =(

I LOVE this show. I think that even if Grayson figures out she's Deb there could be an interesting storyline. Who knows. I think its great that they are doing show with a plus size beautiful woman in the lead. I think she does a great job! I can't wait for next season.. :)

I have also seen and enjoyed all the episodes. It is great to see Deb transitioning into Jane. She has really grown as a person and she shows size does not matter

I love this show! Fred was my favorite. I really hope he comes back.

I think there could be a good storyline if Grayson ever found out Jane was really Deb. It could deal with what a LOT of people deal with in the real world ( unfortunately ) and that is the whole beauty over brains, so to speak. While he loved Deb ... was it superficial??? Was it just her looks? Was a big part of it how she looked? If he found out Deb was Jane ... would it really matter how she looked or would he be too caught up in how " Jane " looks on the outside even though it was really Deb. Could be an interesting storyline ... even though I'm sure it'd hit a little too close to home for a lot of women. You know ... guy thinks you have a great personality ... but not attracted to you.

Personally I'd like to see Grayson fall for Jane on his own without knowing she's really Deb.

Regardless, I hope in the end ... when the show is said and done ( hopefully a LONG LONG LONG time from now ) that Grayson and Jane end up together in whatever way possible.

What about Janes Husband? I think that is soo funny because she was like I dont even know if I have ever even been with a guy...

Either way I love the show and I think the thought of Jane and Grayson ending up together without him knowing that she is Deb would be such a good idea

lol I forgot about that part in the end about her having a husband and not knowing. That was a good ending though leaving us wanting to watch the next season already. Geez how long do you guys think till the season comes back? Next year? That is such a long wait!

Army wives ws always a really long wait so I assume it will be awhile...I however felt like the season wasnt very long so I have no clue... I hope it comes back fast... Lifetime is doing well for itself these days especially with Project Runway

And don't forget Diet Tribe ( another favorite show of mine ). I remember when I just use to click on Lifetime to watch a good chick flick ahaha. Now it's on my favorites ...

What do you ladies think will happen with Jane's husband? And what effects will that fact play in whats happened already? Here's what I think ... I think that whats his name ( her sorta boyfriend now ) will be done with her thinking she has lied to him. Grayson I think will be a bit upset ( personally ) but not really let it show. He'll be surprised that she has a husband but they arent THAT close that he could really be upset as if she lied to him because the convo never came up. Ya know? But personally I think he's going to be upset because he is feeling something for her that maybe he still can't explain but when he finds out shes married ( no matter in what way ) he'll be upset/disappointed. But I think Jane will be able to lean on him like he did with her when he needed someone to talk to about Deb and Kim. It will only solidify their budding friendship even more in the long run. What do you girls think?

I think Jane will divorce her husband and just maybe her husband is still in love with her that's why they have not been divorced yet? Also I think Jane will not work out with her boyfriend so they might even brake up before she ever even gets the chance to tell him she is married. Grayson will also probably get back with Kim. I didn't like Kim in the beginning because she was a *itch but now that I have watched her for a while I'm getting to like her and think that it is ok for Jane to let Kim into Grayson's life. Lol I can only guess what will happen and hope the season comes back soon
