TV5 is now showing the 2nd season of “Drop dead diva”. I missed the 1st season, and chanced upon an episode of the 2nd season recently. I kind of like the show, and it reminded me of an old show of a similar theme: Ally McBeal. Both are comedies, revolving around law firms that take up interesting cases – imagine fighting over the custody of a chimpanzee in court – which I wonder if they would ever reach the court in real life. Both have interesting characters, but the characters in the old show are wackier. The special point about this new show is the female lead. Unlike most female leads in other shows, this lead is a XL instead of a S. I guess the producer is trying to convey the message that real beauty lies within, not the exterior.
