I Have A Soft Spot For This Episode
24 September 2014 | by anderbiltSee all my reviews

I was able to binge-watch all episodes of the first three seasons of Drop Dead Diva, just about the time that the fourth season was set to premiere on Lifetime.

Those 39 episodes were wonderfully entertaining, with a great continuing storyline and engaging performers. The saga of Jane/Deb and the course of her romantic life in those three seasons will always be among my favorite moments spent in front of a TV screen.

I'm commending this particular episode because I kept watching the show into season four, then season five, and I'm now debating whether to spring for a season six download on I-Tunes. I would be numbered among the fans who disliked the many changes and troubling plot choices that were made in the final three seasons of the show. Yet I loved the overall story.

This episode, the so-called cliffhanger of Season Three is the last of what I would call the 'sublime' episodes of the show. This episode, coupled with the first episode of season four, make a great resolving two-part finale in my mind, and I would recommend it as such.
