Pilot is a good start, but has a long way to go...., 24 July 2007

After months and months of endless promos on TNT, "Saving Grace has
finally debuted. I've been interested in seeing the show, since it
stars one of my favorite actresses, Holly Hunter.
Here's the thing that makes me nuts about pilot episodes of shows and casting major actors in them: There's always a ton of exposition thinly disguised in not-so-clever dialog, and the actor, not matter how great they are, can hardly live up to all of the expectations.
Holly Hunter plays a "Bad girl" cop.("She drinks! She smokes! She sleeps around! She doesn't believe in God!") After a drunken car wreck, a tobacco-chawing angel appears and tells her that it's her last chance for redemption. Between swigs and flings with a fellow officer, she's trying to solve a missing child case.
The thing is, this show has potential. Unlike a lot of the formulaic shows on TV, this one appears to have a different angle that could take the character and the show on interesting paths. I know pilot episodes always have a lot of "es'plainin'" to do, so maybe the rest of this season will be more realistic.
