So Lifetime’s new show “The Client List” premiered this sunday after “Army Wives” and apparently pulled in huge ratings for the network. I guess we can assume they have another hit?
The series is based on a Lifetime Movie, which I’m afraid to say that I never saw. After watching the show, I now want to see it. The show stars Jennifer Love Hewitt as Texas mom and wife. Her husband has been out of work, and on a friend’s suggestion she applies to work at a massage parlor run by Loretta Devine (“Grey’s Anatomy’s” Adele). She soon learns it offer’s “extras” to some special clients on a special list. When her husband up and just leaves her, Jennifer’s character is faced with losing everything. She then begins doing the extras to make ends meet. The very end of the pilot, when she thought she had things going in a positive direction (well financially at least). . . her missing husband calls.
I did like the show. I’m not sure where in the hell they will take the story, but I liked it. It became clear something began to bubble up with her brother-in-law during the episode, who felt bad that his low life brother left her. He also suspected her job but not be on the up-n-up as well.
I enjoyed it enough that I plan to keep tuning in. I also plan to FINALLY add “Drop Dead Diva” to my show list on the blog this summer when it begins. I’ve been watching it, I just never had time to comment on it before.
