Saving Grace: Season 2

Saving Grace is again largely about Hunter (no surprise there--the Oscar®-winning actress is also an executive producer); in fact, with the help of the plain-spoken, immensely appealing Earl, Grace may be on the verge of discovering just what God’s plan for her is. But there are also noteworthy developments involving other characters. Her lover, Ham Dewey (Kenny Johnson), is in the process of divorcing his wife, although whether that bodes well for him and Grace is uncertain. One of her brothers, her dead sister’s widower, is about to remarry. And the fates of the pervert priest Father Murphy (Rene Auberjonois) and Death Row convict Leon Cooley (Bokeem Woodbine), both of whom have something important in common with Grace, are resolved--the latter in the final episode, which is perhaps the most moving in the series so far. The weekly storylines (mostly involving homicides) aren’t nearly as memorable as the characters, but the latter easily separate this smart, well-written show from the rest of the cop-show crowd. The paltry bonus material includes two so-so featurettes. --Sam Graham

I can ofcourse only speak for myself, but if anyone reads my text, i can most definitely and honestly say that, Saving Grace season 2 is worth watching.
I can't wait to get my hands on next season.
I know the show is a few years old, but it still got it!
I live in Copenhagen Denmark, so it takes a little while before i receive my items, in contrast to you guys in the United States of America.
Who probably can buy this in any videostore at low cost.
But i don't care, im more than satisfied, cause the people behind Amazon.com are wonderful.
please trust me, this is a true message from a happy customer.
The plot effectively weaves a vivid web of real life events into profound change for Grace. The final scene between two tortured souls; one straining against unfathomable psychological and physical pain and leather execution bonds in full-fledged terror, the other, paralyzed into submission by the greatest love and the fear of something soft and all accepting.
The eyes of Grace embrace and beckon Leon, soul to soul into the last seconds of his life. Quietly, with large Angelic eyes and a yielding voice, and the infinite truth she beckons "Look at me." She repeats. "Look at me".
Grace is saved when the choice is made to comfort Leon as he passes before her eyes. His passing reveals her deepest self.
One or two episodes in Season One made me worry that the show would devolve into a soapbox for a simplistic religious message, but happily, this turned out not to be the case. No matter what your religious bent or lack thereof, Saving Grace depicts universal themes that have gripped people for millenia: our struggle to do the right thing no matter what it requires of us; the struggle to forgive ourselves for the things we have done that caused hurt to others; and the struggle to come to terms with the ways we were hurt by other people (should we forgive them?) These questions are the stuff of religion and the question of religious faith is the framework for Grace's battle, but the focus remains on the actual battles, not the simple trappings of "belief" or "faith".
The show's writers have managed to create good, flawed characters you can recognize and like, and the cast is masterful at depicting them. This is TV police drama at its absolute best.
If you don't like police dramas, watch it anyway for the riveting performances by two fantastic female actors: Holly Hunter, and Laura San Giacomo.
WARNING: There was plenty of nudity in Season One, and Season Two will likely have its share. This series is not for Under 17 or so. Your actual child's maturity may vary.
Oh well you have a love story the kind men and women die for. BUT in season 3 that great love that Ham feels for her and you think would flip her around has gone south for a preaty younger face. TO BAD.
