Episode Summary

Jane represents Brandon Tharp, a CEO who ever since his near-death experience has adopted a more lighthearted lifestyle. But his board of directors does not embrace his new found free-spiritedness and wants him out. Meanwhile, Jane's 15-year high school reunion is approaching and Deb is intrigued by a former classmate eager to "catch up". Meanwhile, Kim and Grayson are approached to represent a bride-to-be that finds her groom and maid of honor having sex a half hour before the wedding.moreless

  • Nah, it wasn't that bad.

    This episode was not that bad.

    I was glad that Grayson and Kim's little situation didn't go beyond that kiss. I think he is too good and sweet to be seeing her.

    The case about the peculiar CEO was not that bad at all. He was too happy, he felt like he was free and did things he wanted to. Jane was right in the end, no one can tell you how to live your life and maybe we could learn a little bit of that phrase.

    The reunion party was so-so, but at least it gave Jane an idea of how to deal with her case.

    Grayson and Kim's case was ridiculous. Why? Because I just can't believe the bride has that low level of self-esteem to forgive such a betrayal. If a man does it one time, he will do it again. If he really loves a woman, he thinks twice before doing something like that. Or at least that's the way it should be.

    The end was really sad. It seems that sometimes some people are blinded by some bad feeling and it doesn't allow them to see further and to truly appreciate the beauty of life. What a waste.

    This show is to sit back and just enjoy the stories. No trying to solve a crime o diagnose a disease, no thinking who did it, just relax and have fun.moreless
  • An interesting Idea that runs out of steam half way.

    I really want to like this show, but this episode epitomises my problem with it. The characters don't really have any depth to them, most are relegated either to being stereotypes (like the head of the law firm) or just by being dull (like Grayson) I got bored half way through this episode. The whole idea of someone having been reincarnated and then meeting someone else who has also had the same experience is really interesting but it wasn't really explored. The whole thing felt like two episodes, the one with the high school reunion and the one with the crazy CEO. The writers seem to really struggle to keep the show interesting for a whole hour. This show would work better as a 30 minute offering I think, like Cougar Town. It is mildly entertaining but nowhere near as good as Ugly Betty, a show which was exploring similar ideas but was much better written.moreless
