    Both "The Closer" and Saving Grace are at the top of their games in tonight's premiere episodes.

    Hunter is just so good and the writing is subtle enough that we're willing to go along for the ride, from those looming-tornado opening credits to the last scene of each episode, in which a new heartstrings-plucking tragedy is neatly and satisfyingly resolved.
  3. This will be good news to people who enjoy watching train wrecks in which the engineer accelerates as the precipice nears, which is Grace's signature move.
  4. Perhaps recognizing the professional problem, the show's writers return with an episode where the crime has a painful personal connection for Grace. Some of the scenes still drag, but it's stronger than most of the season one episodes.

    A strange feeling came over me when I was watching the Season 2 premiere of Saving Grace. I actually wished that the episode was longer.

    Saving Grace is less about its procedural storytelling than it is about simply creating a venue to showcase Hunter's undeniable smallscreen star quality.
  7. 60
    As before, the “big picture” plotlines are often the least convincing, mostly because the trippy angel talk is tough to pull off.
