  1. Berman produces a deft juggling trick of heart and humor, balancing Deb's shallowness with some solid common sense and Jane's inadequate self-esteem with kindness and legal brilliance.
  2. What freshness exists in Sunday's premiere is largely due to Elliott, who's playing a character whose head(s) and heart(s) aren't yet fully synchronized.
  3. The series has humor and charm beneath its facile message, in large part (no disrespect intended) to a subtle, winning performance by Ms. Elliott.

    Here's a series that has a strong cast, great writing and what could prove to be an enlightened exploration of body and self image.
  5. 75
    Some of the lessons are laid on a bit thick. But the cast, including April Bowlby as Deb's best friend, Ben Feldman as her guardian angel, and Jackson Hurst as her boyfriend, sells them with a minimum of fuss and a light touch.
  6. As Deb-inside-Jane, Elliott does a great job portraying pathos, absurd disappointment, and wide-eyed discovery. She’s far more interesting to watch than the other characters.
  7. it's still feeling like a pasted-together assortment of ideas and plot lines from productions past.

    Best tv show I've ever seen. Drama and comedy shown really good. Cast selected ideally, all of actors made great job. When you watch this show, you are worring about their's. Jane is fat, but she is really beauty. I would give her a gold globus or oscar. All i this show is ideal, you wanna watch this everyday, everytime. And this is bad that show was closed by lifetime. This tv show is ''must watch'' tv show. Expand

    The show is simply inspiring & fun to watch. Great messages. Wonderful Cast; and leaves none behind. Includes everyone without favors in the scale of humanity. Everyone can find him/herself reflected in a simple yet constructive manner as we follow the character's journey through the story. Great Show. Expand
