Saving Grace is a captivating crime drama series that aired on TNT from 2007 to 2010. The series follows the life of Grace Hanadarko, a rough and tough Oklahoma City police detective who struggles with guilt and existential crisis. The show is known for its gritty and dark depiction of the criminal underworld and justice system, as well as its focus on the psychological struggles of its characters.

At the center of the story is Holly Hunter's character, Grace Hanadarko. She is a complex and troubled individual who uses her tough exterior to mask her inner demons. Grace is a chain-smoking, hard drinking, foul-mouthed, bar-fighting detective who is tough as nails and about as subtle as a sledgehammer. Despite her rough exterior, Grace is a deeply caring and compassionate person who is dedicated to protecting the innocent and bringing justice to those who deserve it.

Throughout the series, Grace faces numerous challenges both on the job and in her personal life. Her career is put in jeopardy when she is involved in a hit-and-run accident that kills a pedestrian. As if that wasn't enough, Grace must also deal with a cheating boyfriend, a troubled sister, and a complicated relationship with her best friend, Rhetta Rodriguez (Laura San Giacomo).

One of the standout characters in Saving Grace is Leon Rippy's Earl, an angel who appears to Grace after her accident. Earl is a mysterious and enigmatic figure who helps Grace navigate her personal struggles and helps her understand the bigger picture. He is a comforting presence in Grace's life, and his gentle guidance helps her find her way through some of the toughest challenges she faces.

Another noteworthy character in the series is Kenny Johnson's character, Ham Dewey. He is Grace's partner on the police force and is just as rough around the edges as she is. Despite their constant bickering and disagreements, Ham and Grace develop a close bond over the course of the series, and Ham becomes an important ally in Grace's journey.

The rest of the cast is equally impressive, including Bailey Chase as Butch Ada, Lorraine Toussaint as Kate Perry, Dylan Minnette as Clay Norman, Bokeem Woodbine as Leon Cooley, Tom Irwin as Father Leahy, Yaani King as Neely, and Mark L. Taylor as Colonel Stoddard.

The show's themes are thought-provoking and explore questions of morality, faith, and redemption. It confronts difficult subjects head-on and doesn't shy away from portraying the gritty reality of life in the criminal justice system. Despite its heavy subject matter, the show is well-balanced with moments of humor and heartwarming scenes that give viewers a well-rounded and compelling viewing experience.

Overall, Saving Grace is an excellent crime drama series that has gained a devoted following over the years. It stands out from other shows in the genre by focusing on the inner lives and personal struggles of its characters, rather than just the crime and action aspects of the story. Holly Hunter delivers an outstanding performance as Grace Hanadarko, and the supporting cast is equally impressive. The show is engaging, thrilling, and thought-provoking, and is definitely worth checking out for fans of the genre.

Saving Grace is a series that is currently running and has 4 seasons (48 episodes). The series first aired on July 23, 2007.
