Amazing
2 October 2007 | by mirwais-orbitSee all my reviews

I think that Saving Grace is a part of that current successful plot (bad ass woman working to put everything in order) chosen by TNT to be massive produced and follow the success of The Closer. That's so that way that the creator and the main writer is the same for both series: Nancy Miller. But that's OK, the show stills being a little original, and that's what matters to me.

I can understand why some people are not liking this series so much, I think that perhaps is its southern, pure, dirty and incredulous way to be crude and straight on the stories, something that's not so common on television these days. From the past few years people are forgetting how to produce TV shows, making the shows looks so plastic and fictional that when a realistic series is on TV, people prefer to change the channel. OK, Saving Grace isn't that realistic because there's an angel on it with wings, but the show is working with realistic matters, personal problems and sins (or what we call sins) from different point of views of a few saints and sinners (or what we call saints and sinners). At the same way these are also the same reasons why some other people are liking this show so much.

That's nice to know that this show is getting some attention by now because it has an interesting plot, an amazing cast and dialogs a lot unconventional treating your brains the way it should be treated. This show is not for kids, teenagers, housewives or businessman, but for those audiences looking for something a little different like each one of us. The characters have very well designed personalities and no one is perfect, even Earl, the angel. So, who is right and who is wrong?
