Critic Reviews for Drop Dead Diva Season 3

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (1)

Once you look past the trappings of the hokey premise (and the often generic legal proceedings) there is a central emotional core of reinvention and emotional growth to the show that easily sucks you in.

Drop Dead Diva is my feel-good show, because it always puts me in a good mood when I watch it, and I'm not only really happy to have it back on my screen, the premiere was once again a reminder of why I watch.

I'm really happy with the way things were ended this season. It opens up so many paths for the show to take and it changes all the characters for the better.

"Diva" has stuck around for three seasons now, its third ending soon, building an audience and changing skeptical viewers' minds -- mine included -- about just what type of show it is. And it's a cute one.

Sep 20, 2018 | Full Review…

Too bad the high concept premise - Heaven Can Wait meets Legally Blonde - also sticks them with a reactionary gender politics.
