Okay, I was ready for the average fluff that you see in these sitcoms and really looking forward to it. I couldn't have been more surprised. This show is great and horrible in equal measure. There are some really poignant moments as Jane learns to adjust and take her place as a now intelligent woman in a larger body. Unfortunately there is an undercurrent that's actually really disturbing. In the world of this sitcom the viewer is constantly reminded that it's a given that the whole world is prejudice against anyone with weight. They make a point in each episode to teach us a lesson about looking beyond the surface but they still want us to assume that Jane obviously isn't as pretty as she was as Deb and that a woman can either be overweight and make the best of herself anyway or slim and attractive. Jane is such a good person that she always comes out on top despite her weight. It's that constant undertone of 'despite her weight' that really disturbs me.

Saying that, I'm still going to watch the next season when it comes out.

This is the funniest series I've seen in a while but also has an important message at the heart of it. As we see 'Deb' adjust to her new size 16 body we journey with her as she challenges modern preconceptions about what it is to be a woman.

Laughed out loud and can't wait for the next series

This is about a beautiful, skinny, dumb, blonde, model who dies but there is a mistake that sends her back to earth but in the body of a fat, brunette, lawyer (who, by the way, I think is also beautiful). She has all of her memories but lives the life of the lawyer which leads to some funny (sometimes sad) situations. It sometimes shows that we should not judge a book by it's cover other times it shows the shallow side of us all. I really can relate to some of the food issues.

Margaret Cho is fantastic in this as the assistant.

I thought Shallow Hal was truly funny, but I have the ability to laugh at myself. If you did not like Shallow Hal then you probably won't like this. I am a large woman but found this to be funny, poingnant, and entertaining. If you don't want to be reminded that this world favors thin, beautiful people then this is not for you.

This is not a review of episode but of service. Unable to watch for free due to the famous error licensing issues that seem to regularly occur with my live streaming account. Wouldn't mind purchased kindle fire thinking as amazon product this would no longer happen - wrong. So purchased episode and still can not watch. Half hour of my life I we not get back waiting for it to download. Thanks amazon. Pants

I absolutely loved this. Such a bitter sweet storyline of Deb and Jane. Deb was a beautiful aspiring model who died and was then transported into the plus size body of Jane an up and coming lawyer (who also on died on the same day). Deb still has her memories and charm but she now has the brains and compassion of Jane. With all the anxieties and the pressure's that society has put on plus size women, she learns to love her new self. The only people who know who Deb really is are her best friend and her gaurdian angel. A fabulous and feel good story....can't wait for the next series.

I bought this DVD on a whim after watching trailers for Season 2. I was not disappointed Brooke Elliott is brilliant as the attorney with a heart, showing that to be beautiful you do not have to be a size zero.
