"Saving Grace has always been one of my favorite TV series. We don't watch tv so we buy the dvd's. The last episode was quite a surprise. I replayed the last disc twice. So well put together as a send off amazing and sad. I would reccommend this whole series. I already miss Earl and Grace. Hats off to you Holly Hunter!! Actully the whole staff. It takes a good mix of people to pull off a one of a kind winning show."

"This show has many of my favorite actors, including Hunter herself and three alumni of The Shield - even a guest appearance from F. Murray Abraham. The first season was promising; the second went downhill; but the third was just shockingly bad writing. The Neely storyline was all over the map and never made any sense, building in ridiculousness until she happens to inexplicably show up dead in a dumpster in the same wacked out Mexican town that Holly is stumbling around in. The police procedural B-plots - previously decent - were also almost uniformly absurd - leaping to ridiculous denouements that come out of nowhere, with the culprit confessing instantly and right on cue. The final episode wasn't quite as bad as the rest of the season - or maybe I was just relieved that it was over.
To sum up season 3, I picture God the Dog's goofy quizzical face - as if to say "who WROTE this mess?""

Having never watched "Saving Grace" before, I didn't know what to really expect from this series. Academy Award winner Holly Hunter heads up the cast as Grace, a detective who happens to have a guardian angel named Earl. A show like this could easily get preachy and turn certain people off, but I was surprised to find it presented in such an even matter that most people could stick with it.
Grace herself is a flawed character and no angel. Grace isn't sure what she believes and doesn't pray. Not being perfect and having lots of issues as well as a tough job facing homicides, bombings, and a near-death experience makes her someone to root for. Holly Hunter is a down-home kind of girl with a very distinctive accent that clearly dictates she does not believe she is better than anyone else. The short version is that she is the opposite of every stereotype naysayers might expect and she is very easy to relate to since she doesn't have all the answers.
Holly Hunter's wit, enthusiasm, and sense of humor when things are going down around her are very attractive and charismatic qualities. She pulls out serious acting chops of emotion whenever she needs to as in one case where Grace needs to convince an alcoholic that she is one too and trick her into breaking her three year sobriety to get answers. Hunter never shies away from a challenge and always manages to bring the mood back to a light place full of laughs eventually.
A great deal of this season revolves around a girl who falls into a coma that Earl claims Grace needs to help. A series of challenges are put in front of her in her work life, her family, her relationships, and her friends. Eventually her own spirituality and faith are questioned, but only in retrospect to bigger issues taking place in the plot.
There is a love interest component, a best friend angle, and lots of crime drama to solve and all this helps keep it a more rounded story.

"This was a great season for Grace.Excepet for a hokey ending It made you wonder why they couldn't keep it going another season.But that is generally true of any good show.You get used to the characters and you react to their lives as if
they were real people.I won't go into detail but each episode had it's strong points.You just can't help wonder what will happen next."
