Product Description

All of your burning questions are finally answered in the electrifying final season of the emotionally gripping and darkly humorous Saving Grace. Academy Award winner Holly Hunter* returns as Grace Hanadarko, the hard-living detective with an angel on her shoulder. As she continues her relentless search for the truth she faces homicides, bombings, a mysterious girl in a coma, and a miraculous near-death experience. Now, with guardian angel Earl's help, Grace's profound journey of self-discovery and spiritual upheaval draws to a spectacular close as she prepares to challenge evil head-on, once and for all!

Amazon.com

Not much seems to have changed as Saving Grace begins its third and final season. Star (and executive producer) Holly Hunter's Grace Hanadarko is still the tough-talking, hard-drinking, truth-abusing, rule-defying Oklahoma City police detective we've come to know; in fact, in the very first episode, she and her boyfriend, fellow cop Ham Dewey (Kenny Johnson), are caught on film committing a drunken and very public prank. But this time there's more to it. Ever since the pilot episode, Grace has received regular if unpredictable visitations from a folksy, avuncular "last chance angel" named Earl (Leon Rippy), who has offered her a chance at redemption, telling her that "God is using you for great things." And now, at last, Grace somehow realizes that her time is coming. Not that she's exactly serene about it; on the contrary, she remains defiant and skeptical. But she also has a growing sense of the inevitable, and these 19 episodes (about half again as many as the previous seasons) gradually lead her, and us, to a resolution that's neither pat nor pretty.

Along the way, Grace and her colleagues, who by now have developed an appealingly casual but caring camaraderie, deal with various quotidian police matters, with stand-alone stories involving the specter of domestic terrorism (an especially touchy subject in OKC, still reeling from the 1995 bombing of the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building, in which Grace's own sister was killed), an AA-like program for alcoholics, Hasidic Jews and kosher beef, Muslim attitudes toward homosexuality, ranchers battling over water, and so on. But it's Grace's personal journey that predominates. Over the course of the season, she tries to help a troubled young woman who also has a relationship with Earl, thinking this might be what God has in store for her; she also confronts a sinister stranger named Hut Flanders (Gordon MacDonald, Hunter's real-life boyfriend), who, like Earl, is not of this world. Of course, Grace isn't someone who channels her emotions very positively. And by the final few episodes, she's deep into a downward spiral, self-inflicted and otherwise, that makes her earlier self look tame: she's involved in a fatal car accident; her house is burned down; she smokes crack, turns tricks, and rejects friends and loved ones alike. It's hard to believe that all this turmoil is part of "great things," but if there's one thing series creator Nancy Miller has emphasized throughout Saving Grace's run, it's that God works in mysterious ways. --Sam Graham

3.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as seasons 1+2, disappointing DVD-set August 11, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I loved the first two seasons, but felt that the third and final season wasn't nearly as good most of the time. (There were exceptions.) Let me first say that I think the ending fit and made sense, so that's not what disappointed me. But a lot of the other stuff seemed very disjointed and often meaningless to me. Crime plots were suddenly 'solved' in a minute because the writers didn't bother writing a good development about how the cops solved the crime. An important new characters goes through one weird change after another: A battered girlfriend who doesn't even dare to leave the house or talk to anyone; then she's in a coma, wakes up and suddenly doesn't speak English anymore; she then skips from country to country and through all kinds of jobs (all of which she's excellent at?!); then she turns out to be a millionaire - meth-addicted suicidal religious girl with a closer link to Earl than Grace. By the way, with the exception of the first episodes she's far from a doormat, so why did she tolerate an abusive man who beat her and kept her a virtual prisoner in the house? You get the idea. The writing skips and often doesn't make sense.
The characters and actors were still great, but I had the impression that the writing suffered from the impeding cancellation of the series. Whether that was because the writers were running out of time or were frustrated and didn't bother writing at the same level as before? I don't know.
What I also find very frustrating is that we get a bare bones set with no extras whatsoever. To me that also shows a disinterest in a dying series. A few interviews or audio commentaries with some background information would have been nice. I would still buy it to get the complete series, but I'm disappointed that the final season wasn't of the same quality as seasons 1 and 2.

5.0 out of 5 stars WHY IS THIS OVER? July 3, 2010
By L. Hess
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
At first I didn't care for the show but somehow I kept tuning in to watch it and pretty soon I could hardly wait for the next week's episode. This was a WONDERFUL series that touched you on many different levels....so why did they only do 4 seasons of it? With all the garbage that's on TV now and that keeps coming back season after season (for ex. Keeping Up with the Kardashians which is a total ZERO) why would they take Saving Grace off the air after only 4 seasons and WHY did it have to end the way it did?! I was totally surprised & upset with the ending and I'm still upset about it.....it was totally unexpected and really different from the way other shows end, which makes it unique again, but I still didn't like the ending. I feel like I've had a personal loss myself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Only gets better... March 20, 2010
While not released on DVD at the time of this review, I watched the entirety of Season 3 of "Saving Grace" a second time (from my DVR) in preparation for the Season 4 (and final season) on March 29. I can say without hesitation, it is the best season yet, powerful, funny, and lyrical, this is the rare show that only gets better with each passing season. Most noticeably this time, the police stories are the strongest they have ever been. The direction is absolutely hypnotic. Holly Hunter, as wild Detective Grace Hanadarko, has re-estblished herself with this show as a force to be reckoned with. Hunter is beautiful as ever (at age 52), and at the top of her game. Scenes that stand out from this season are Hanadarko's interview of a rape victim...a chilling piece of work that cuts between her inteview of the victim and her fellow detectives walk of the crime scene, Hunter's interview carried in voiceover. It's a scene that reminds us of who Grace is...for all of her wild, booze-fueled, sexually charged escapades, she is a brilliant, compassionate and searingly brave. Her strengths vastly outweighing her flaws. Another stand out moment is when Grace is abducted by a psychopath, and Earl mobilizes a team of angels to search for her...It's a gorgeous, moving scene that had my eyes welled up as it stood to deepen Earl's compassion (and at times, envy) for Grace. Or the final scene of that episode when we see her kidnapper has tattooed beautifully ornate angel wings on her back. This season also gives us a better idea of exactly what Grace has done to have a last-chance angel...stemming from her actions around the Oklahoma City bombing which killed her sister. The season finale, "Am I Gonna Die Today? Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Television Shows I have ever seen! August 10, 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was not someone that really wanted to watch a show called "Saving Grace" as I was convinced it would have obnoxiously heavy handed preaching, and I was looking to be entertained not preached at. One night I was bored and saw an episode was available from Comcast cable's On Demand, and I decided to watch, and found myself intrigued. The episode I watched was part of the second season I believe, and I continued to watch episodes as they became available, particularly when I heard that the show was being cancelled.

This last season brought the entire show full circle, and allowed the viewer to see the main charector, Grace Hannadarko as not only a human being with obvious flaws, but also someone who has been chosen for greatness; and it is in the final episode, where the viewer finds out just what Grace was chosen for.

I watched the final two episodes three times, as each time I saw a clue that I had missed the first time around. I ended up feeling like hope is not simply a four letter word, and that we do not have to be perfect to become one with our creator. Although I have seen various people say various things about Grace's final moments, I for one was left feeling that love makes anything possible, and it was something I really, truly needed. It's amazing, as I think of that last episode, I am still moved to tears.

I would urge anyone to watch even a random episode of Saving Grace, and do so with an open mind and open heart. I believe you will find yourself wanting to see more, and in the end glad that you followed Grace Hannadarko on her journey.

Oh and one last thing. I have not been one to follow Holly Hunter's career, although I riveted by your performance in "The Piano".
