Drop Dead Diva Review: Attractive Nuisance

by at . Comments

Did Grayson do something terrible in a past life or something? Because he's having the luck of a dung beetle in this one, at least when it comes to his love life.

"Cheaters" once again dangled the possibility of Jane and Grayson in front of Drop Dead Diva fans... only to rip it away.

The SATs

Let's just discuss Grayson's love life overall for a moment:

First, he loses the love of his life in a tragic car accident. Then, he falls for Jane as she's about to get married. One kiss was so against the universe's laws that Owen almost dropped dead. What is the point of the whole clause that says if Jane ever gets together with Grayson terrible things will happen?

There's no point and it hurts two people. I don't think I've been this sad about Jane and Grayson since the episode when he had the pianist at the bar play the song from Ghost to see if she really was Deb reincarnated. Of course "Unchained Melody" is an incredibly emotional song on its own, but still that scene just gutted me. 

Don't get me wrong, I really like Owen but I'm also so sick of keeping those two apart. As for Owen... when is he going to stop with his biting remarks? He has every right to be angry and bitter but then why bother taking a job at Jane's firm. Some of his comments are just exasperating. Is he going to punish her forever? 

In my experience the people who appear least likely to cheat are the ones you gotta watch out for. | permalink

The cases on this episode weren't exactly riveting. To be honest, the whole Adderall one was a joke. Don't get me wrong, the abuse of prescriptions is very realistic - but is some mom really going to jail because they think she shared her prescription with her son? It felt like a reach, illegal or not.

What do you think of Stacy's plan to have a baby? Are you enjoying Paul as the latest guardian angel? I find him very entertaining. Hit the comments with your thoughts on the latest Drop Dead Diva!

Was anyone else terribly distracted by Jane's eyebrows and eyeshadow in this episode??

I just don't get it =0 why is it that Grayson and Jane can see Deb isn't Jane Deb? This is so confusing was Grayson hallucinating? and what about Jane was Deb in two places at once other than Jane's body? and Jane's soul ? I'm just so confused can someone please explain this =O

I am enjoying Paul. We need the lightheartedness. Owen's cutting remarks are not that unrealistic given the circumstances. Him taking the job is, though, really. As for the Jane and Grayson thing, the love triangle is making money for Lifetime right now so they are going to drag it out as long as they can. I person really like Owen and would prefer him with Jane, but after tonight's crushing of Grayson, I suspect they will be putting him and Jane together before the end of the season. Or AT the end of the season. Maybe they will find another love interest for Owen - the fanbase really seems to like his character right now so hopefully they won't take him off.

I'm begining to suspect D³ is headed towards 'Jumping the Shark.' Case in point: The latest Guardian Angel is an not believable. He's a brat.
Owen working at the firm with an ex-fiance? No way.
Only one show with original Jane? Should have been at least half the season to resolve this issue.
Stacy goes from airhead actress wanna be to successful business woman? No way.
Parker not returning to firm and pregnant girlfriend? Just repeating same story with old girlfriend. I hope the writers wake up and start writing interesting scripts or they might as well bring on cousin Oliver and close down.

Paul (lovely lovely Paul better used here than in 90210)is actually injecting some much wanted skewedness in what could become a formulaic USA summer replacement.

Owen

Like 21 Jump Street, I'm Channing Tatum. Except you have to admit there is something special about Jonah Hill.
