Jane by Design 1.13 "The Surprise" Review

In a lot of ways, Jane by Design is an 80s movie transplanted into the year 2012. I mean, let's be real; the concept is Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead by way of Ugly Betty (and, to a lesser extent, The Devil Wears Prada) and the first half of the first season was as light, fluffy, and innocent as you'd expect from a show like this. Jane may have faced challenges and expectations from her new role at Donovan Decker, but it seemed that she always managed to pull out a victory or come up with a miraculous idea to save an account right before the credits would (theoretically) roll. Cue a wistful, topical pop song about surviving the challenge laying before you and never giving up and boom, movie from 1984 that you'll watch on cable every single time it comes on.
