Return of Jezebel James

Updated on March 14, 2008

My Review of the Show

This new show on Fox premiered on Friday, March 14, 2008, and this review is based on the first two episodes of the show shown as the premiere of the show. The show was created by Amy Sherman-Palladino and Daniel Palladino. They are the same creators as the show Gilmore Girls, which is the main reason I was interested in seeing this new show.

The two main characters of the show are Sarah (Parker Posey) and Coco (Lauren Ambrose). Sarah works as a children’s book editor and Coco, her sister, is unemployed and basically considered somewhat of a failure by the family, although not much details are revealed about her past in these first two episodes. There are a few insights into Coco’s past and her mistakes. I have a feeling more will be revealed as the series continues and part of the interest in the show is wanting to watch it to learn more about Coco. The other thing that keeps it interesting it wanting to see how the relationship between the two of them will evolve.

The two sisters are not close at all, but Coco ends up moving in with Sarah by the end of the first episode. They have not exactly becoming close, but they certainly do have a very touching moment of coming together in a diner. Basically it comes down to Sarah learns that she cannot have kids, but wants to start a family, so she convinces Coco to be the surrogate mother.

So, if you did not catch the first episode of the show, you may be wondering who is Jezebel James? Well, she is a fictional character of a book that Sarah is working on the final steps for it to be released. No, the book is not a sequel, but rather it has to do with who the character is based on. Jezebel James was the imaginary friend of Sarah sister, Coco. Thus she is returning in that Sarah is bringing her back as an imaginary character. It is also seems to be kind of a metaphor for Coco reentering Sarah’s life.

Overall I found it to be an interesting show to watch, although it does not quite have the pull of me wanting to not miss an episode. I appears it will be interesting to see the sisters learning to live with each other, but it also seems that it will be predictably about them ultimately becoming close sisters and perhaps even raising the kid together.

      You can purchase and download episodes through Amazon and iTunes. I highly doubt it will ever make it to DVD since it was canceled so fast.
