I had never really heard anything about the tv show “Saving Grace,” but was excited to have an opportunity to review it on DVD. I have to say that I actually really liked it. Each episode left me wanting to watch more. It was a good show and I would watch another season.

On June 16th, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment released “Saving Grace: Season 2” on DVD. “Saving Grace” is about an intense, audacious, and fiery Oklahoma City police detective named Grace Hanadarko (Holly Hunter) – who is a fast-living, hard-drinking, cynical forty-something who, despite being at the top of her field, takes struggle to a new level. It all catches up with her when, after another night of too many drinks, she tragically kills a pedestrian with her car, forcing her, uncharacteristically, to ask God for help. God answers her prayers through Earl (a scruffy, tobacco-spitting, unlikely “last chance angel”) who helps Grace to get her life on the right path.

In the second season, Grace reaches the darkest point in her life as she tries to forgive herself for her sister’s death in the Oklahoma City bombing. “Saving Grace: Season 2” has an outstanding cast, including Leon Rippy (Deadwood), Laura San Giacomo (“Just Shoot Me”), Kenneth Johnson (“The Shield”), Bokeem Woodbine (The Big Hit), Gregory Cruz (“Criminal Minds”), Dylan Minnette (“Prison Break”), Lorraine Toussaint (“Any Day Now”), and Bailey Chase (“Las Vegas”).

“Saving Grace” Season Two arrives on a four-disc set, featuring 14 episodes from Season Two with bonus features including featurettes: Have a Little Faith: The Successes of “Saving Grace” and The Wrap Party Red Carpet, Hosted by Dylan Minnette, and will be available for the suggested retail price of $49.98 U.S. / $59.98 Canada.
