Default Drop Dead Diva

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.

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!

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!

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 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.
