DROP DEAD DIVA - Begin Again - Review Season 2, Episode 6


There are a few new beginnings on the Begin Again episode of DROP DEAD DIVA, where a pop duo is accused of murdering their manager and Grayson and Jane must work with an attorney from another firm to clear their clients. Grayson represents one of the two singing sisters and he chooses Jane for second chair because she's a pop music expert. Much to Jane's dismay, Grayson is instantly attracted to the other sister's lawyer (Jaime Ray Newman), but Jane still manages to clear both clients with an assist from Stacy while Grayson stands uselessly nearby. In the B case, Parker's favorite inn has been slandered by an anonymous review site and he needs Kim to save its reputation. She does, but Parker's reputation takes a hit while Teri's is enhanced by some nice investigative work.


I’m not usually bothered by the sloppy legal work and unrealistic portrayal of the legal system, but, wow, was it out of control here. In criminal cases, all evidence is shown to the defense, so the surprises here are infuriating, especially the prosecution's breaking of the sisters' alibi. That no one on the defense checked with the movie box office isn't just unrealistic, it's malpractice bordering on an ethics violation that completely took me out of the show. The rest of the case was equally frustrating (I knew it was the assistant the second I saw her and I hate that) except for Stacy's awesome glitter poster tearing apart Jane’s client’s story. Never underestimate Stacy.
