From LA Examiner: 'Jane By Design', 'Rizzoli & Isles', and 'Franklin & Bash' Season Premiere Advance Reviews...



"Jane By Design’s return sees new complications & eye candy for Jane Quimby"

When return to the fabulous and precocious world of Jane Quimby (Erica Dasher) in ABC Family’s breakout series Jane By Design this summer, two months have passed for the aspiring fashionista. Starting to struggle a bit more at school but still strive for more responsibility at her “internship,” Jane is overwhelmed by a lot of things.

When they needed to get the job done in court, they did so with flavor and fervor. It wasn’t a chore or a hassle or an exercise in physical comedy to watch these guys get up late and go to work; no, they were always prepared mentally and physically-- dressed to the nines to impress and put on a show. They just truly know how to live life: working hard and partying harder... [MORE]
