Exemplary Episode in an Outstanding Series
4 June 2012 | by anderbiltSee all my reviews

I'm sure not everyone would agree with the description of "Good Grief" that I posted above. But after viewing this single episode among many in a catch-up session on Netflix, I was struck by how artfully and masterfully this episode captured the essence of the pain that underlies the comedy and drama of "Drop Dead Diva."

Spectacular personal pain is almost like an uncredited character itself in the premise of this show, which featured the confluence of a tragic car crash and a workplace shooting. This particular episode was striking to me in its exploration of grieving, and remembrance, and was striking in the care it took with some little-explored aspects of Jane's situation and circumstances, which otherwise could have been left unexplored in the course of telling the stories.

I'm avoiding spoilers for those who are discovering the series for the first time. I only started watching "Drop Dead Diva" myself a couple of weeks ago and have been watching as many as I can since then.

This episode made me walk away from the TV and reflect for awhile. Thanks for that.
