Even with a good premise, a show can fail very hard.

I love this show and hope it comes back for a second season. The premise will be familiar to readers of paranormal romances--a woman dies unexpectedly and comes back in another form that gives her a new perspective on life, society, romance, and, ultimately, her own self.

In this case, the diva that drops dead is a shallow, self-absorbed, not all that bright, but not mean, hot blond with a hot lawyer fiance. Refusing to accept death, she defiantly presses a "return" button while being processed in the afterlife, and whammo, she's back on earth, resuscitated in the body of a very smart, but very chubby brunette lawyer ( looks reminiscent of Delta Burke, but less kittenish).

And off we go. Deb, the dead diva, has to adapt to a new reality as Lane-Bryant-clad plus-size plain Jane. She has her own personality with Jane's brain--so she has a boatload of legal know-how. And, oh oh, her fiance is now a lawyer at Jane's firm. Another female lawyer--one with a slim physique and icy demeanor and high-level ambition that contrasts with Janes's plumpness and subdued prettiness and bit of Deb-ditziness. They sometimes clash, sometimes cooperate, and they are each refining the other, which is cool to watch. Everyone is fated to learn and grow.

The humor and drama are well-balanced, and it's fun to see Margaret Cho as the deadpanning snarky but capable assistant to Jane. The actor who plays Deb's fiance is very appealing and quite handsome (reminds me of the late Edward Albert when he was young with a dash of that guy who was Quentin in DARK SHADOWS, for those who remember).

The premise is that a brainless, model, Deb, accidentally dies, presses a button and is accidentally sent back to earth. Unfortunately, she's sent back in the body of an overweight lawyer, Jane, who was a good person (I know a lawyer that was a good person).

The main actress, Brooke Elliott does a great job playing a woman who still sees herself as a model living in a world that perceives her as overweight lawyer; seeing her character evolve from a self indulgent model into someone building a conscious is entertaining. She is forced into ethical dilemmas weekly that are funny, sad, or sometimes touching. There are also plenty of "big name" special guest stars playing some really funny characters.

Truthfully, with the plot I'm surprised this isn't just another fluff show but it isn't. This show leaves you feeling good about the world, hopeful; I don't know how but it does.

I guess I should add that the first couple of shows aren't as good as the later shows but they lay the ground work, so you should watch them knowing that the show turns into something special quickly.

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.

I couldn't sleep one night so I was browsing Netflix and of course there was nothing good... but this show came up in the recommendations so I decided to watch an episode.. Well, I watched the entire 1st season that night and well into the morning... I did not go to sleep lol I was in love. It is a funny show but it really has a lot of meaning in each episode. It is not all about drama and fashion like I thought it was going to be, it's about a lot more. I like the characters and they have a good connection with each other. I have been recomending this show to friends all week. :)

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! :)

This is one of those series that is sweet and funny, with a very talented cast. If that's your thing, then you'll enjoy drop dead diva. I'm not a person with a lot of leisure time to follow series. This is a series that I make a point to chase. The leading lady is an amazing actress with a beautiful voice. I watch it b/c I care about the characters, and would like to see what happens to them. Also, the stories in court range from smart to touching. I say give it a shot. Watch the first two episodes, and by then, you'll know whether you like it or not. If you don't, then you lost less than two hours, but if you do, then you'll be in for a treat! PS: New York Times wrote an article about the show last year for those interested.

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.
