Drop Dead Diva


US Fall TV season is still almost 2 months away, and summer TV listings haven't really live up to my expectation (even Weeds "pale" in comparison to it's previous seasons) but fret not as Lifetime channel brings me a super-exciting and addictive new show that I JUST HAVE to share with you.

Drop Dead Diva (pardon the superbimbo and corny name, a book shall not be judged by it's cover) tells the story of Deb (left in picture), a little self-absorbed woman, shallow and clueless at times, but living a happy life with her boyfriend. While Jane (right), is super smart, no nonsense attorney with low self esteem. When both of them die at the same time, a divine glitch suddenly transfers Deb's soul into Jane's vacant body. So when a cheerleader-type suddenly becoming size 16, you can imagine the hilarity which ensues after. But keep in mind, she also possess Jane's terrific IQ and brain, so this teeny tiny mind of hers (who only have things like modeling job auditions to think about) suddenly found herself in the middle of complicated court cases. The result is a high-lariously funny legal dramedy.

But despite the recycled Freaky Friday+Legally Blonde plot, Drop Dead Diva totally brings some fresh perspective to the premise. You can laugh a minute then touched the next. TV-ly speaking, it's Ugly Betty meets Eli Stone. Currently in it's 4th episode, I've been heavily hyping this to my friends and Farah is my latest victim. Haha.
