Season 1
Drop Dead Diva

Critics Consensus

Drop Dead Diva's lightweight and somewhat cliche' fare is made vastly more palatable by the breakout performance of its lead, Brooke Elliott.

    I love this show. I don't care what anyone else says, this show is perfect. I felt so many emotions while watching this show. It is funny, it makes me weep like a little girl, it shocks me, it teaches me new things, and it just makes me happy. The first episode confused me. I didn't read the synopsis of the show, and I didn't have any friends tell me about. I saw it on Netflix one day and decided to press play. I loved Deb, and thought she was fun. I saw Jane for the first time and I felt sorry for her. When Deb woke up as Jane, I felt a bit disappointed. I thought she would somehow get her body back. When I realized that wasn't going to happen, I thought to myself "Well, this show is dumb..." As I watched and understood what was happening, I started crying. It was kind of awesome!
