I was so excited last week when I came on Amazon and saw Drop Dead Diva was free to watch for Prime Members. I have been looking forward to watching the new season and couldn't wait for episode 2 to post..to my dismay today when I logged in episode 2 of season 5 is not free for Prime Members. I am so disappointed as I was counting on it. I do not have cable tv and Lifetime doesn't let you air the episodes unless you pay for certain networks. I am so disappointed. Bring Drop Dead Diva back to Prime, please!

I've been a fan of DDD since its first season. I love Brooke Elliot, and I feel the whole cast over all is great. The different court room story arcs remain fresh and interesting. Its the rest of the show that is missing something now. I love that the star of the show is a plus sized woman. In the beginning of the series, we saw Jane dealing with what goes along with that in every day life, especially as a professional. The series has gotten away from that though, which I thought was the heart of the show. The whole angst-y love triangle with Jane, Owen, and Grayson feels contrived. Stacey became a professional baker over night, and now she's getting artificially inseminated. Huh????? The writers don't seem to know what to do with Jane's guardian angel. At least with Fred they had the whole "learning to be human" angle as well as having him date Stacey. That at least gave him a purpose for being in the story line. Luke didn't really do anything, and this new guy(Bo/Paul.....who really cares anyway?) does nothing but interrupt the flow of the show. At least Fred was somewhat angelic, helping guide Deb in her transition to becoming Jane...I'm having a hard time buying the last two guys as being able to guard anything, let alone being there to guide Deb in her new life as Jane. As much as I like this show, I'm hoping they wrap it up this season and let it end with some dignity. The show hasn't jumped the shark yet, but its circling it.

I ordered this and after watching disc 1 (of 3), I proceeded to disc 2....it didn't make sense til I noticed it was actually disc 3! And disc 3 was also disc 3! Amazon promptly sent another set, but it had the same problem. Hope they resolve this quickly and include a real disc 2 in the set!!!! PS I gave it 5 stars because of the show, not the disc problem!!!!! Too bad Sony couldn't release these "normally"......

I LOVE Drop Dead Diva and would have given it 5 stars but there was something fishy about the packaging. I have purchased seasons 1-4 in the past so I am familiar with the packaging. The image on the front seemed a bit grainy, the discs did not have the normal photo print on them only a white sticker, and the background menu screen is very plain, not images of the cast. This seems very odd.

I love the show but this particular DVD set is defective in that while the discs are labeled as 1, 2 and 3, the episodes on disc two are the same as on disc 3. The episodes in the middle of the season are missing. I have to return the set for that reason but if in the future the set is fixed, I will order again because I love the show and want to complete my collection.

Loved the twists and turns in this episode. It is worth the watch because if you have been keeping up with the prior seasons this will not disappoint.

EDIT 12/07/2014: Amazon has addressed the issue with the duplicated discs. In addition, all discs are now playable on Blu-Ray players. Given this, I have now increased my rating to three stars. Despite the blur cover, the episodes are all in great quality.

Diva fans will look back at season 5 as the season the show took a turn for the worst and never quite recovered. In addition to the drop in quality of the show, the studio has decided to release the season through MOD forcing fans everywhere to ponder if this is actually worth the purchase.

For those of us wanting to complete our collection and went ahead with the purchase, due to lack of quality control on Amazon's part, every single copy currently in rotation contain two copies of disc 3 and no disc 2 hence making it impossible to have that complete set we were after. Also, given the inconsistency in the manufacturing of these discs through the MOD program, you will most likely encounter problems getting your DVD/Blu-Ray player to read one if not all of the discs.

Given this, I would suggest that you skip the purchase for now and wait until Amazon has sorted out issues with the duplicated disc. After which you just need to hope that the discs are playable for you.

Very very disappointing indeed.

This show is awesome in so many ways. I'm so glad they brought it back. This is the first time I've seen a show that dealt with body issues in real positive ways and doesn't try to minimize it.
