My New Crush

Well I'm about two years behind, but I'm completely smitten.
With what you ask?
Drop Dead Diva.
It's a show on Lifetime.
I heard about it when it came out, and for whatever reason thought it would be lame.
So with no cable and our recent move, I've been hitting up Netflix.
Drop Dead Diva just so happens to be on there.
And I'm officially hooked!
I absolutely LOVE it! I mean seriously love it!
You seriously need to watch it!

Here's the idea:

The series revolves around vapid blonde and aspiring model, Debbie (Deb) Dobkins (played by Brooke D'Orsay in the pilot and in flashbacks), who is killed in a car crash. As her soul enters the gates of Heaven, she finds herself declared a self-centered "zero" (meaning she has performed zero good deeds and zero bad deeds during her time on earth; she is simply shallow) by the gatekeeper, Fred. After not liking what she hears, she presses for a return to her former body, hoping to get back to Earth. Deb gets her wish, only to be brought back to life in the body of a recently deceased, intelligent, overweight lawyer named Jane Bingum.

Initially horrified, Deb – in her new human form – discovers the meaning of inner beauty as she finds the ability to juggle legal cases, aided by her assistant Terri, while attempting to reconnect incognito with her still-grieving boyfriend, Grayson Kent, who just started working at Jane's law firm. At the same time, Deb begins to rediscover her past while learning more about her inherited body's current life, and how Jane was treated when she was alive. In addition to Fred (who was demoted to guardian angel and had been assigned to watch over her at the law firm), only Deb's long-time mortal friend Stacy knows Jane's true identity.

Oh, and happy St. Patty's Day!
