Am I the only one?


Have you seen it?

The plot focuses on Grace Hanadarko, a smoking, heavy drinking, and promiscuous Oklamhoma City Homicide Detective. In the first episode Grace meets up with her "last-chance" Angel when after one of her drinking binges she runs down and kills a pedestrian with her Porsche. In desperation she calls out for God's help, and a scruffy, tobacco-spitting man who calls himself Earl appears. Unfolding his wings to reveal his divine origins, Earl tells her that she's headed for hell if she does not change her ways.

It is a little on the edgy side. Cable TV pushes the envelope so much these days--who needs to pay for HBO? I am thrilled because while all the other channels are on repeats this show premiers tonight for the third season. So it has sex, drinking and violent subject matter, Angels and humor. Holly Hunter is smoking hot! She gave birth to twins 4 years ago at the age of 47! UGHHH, I have no excuse!

Check it out if you dare!

I haven't heard of this BUT one of my all time favorite movies is a British film called Saving Grace. In that one, Grace's husband commits suicide. Grace discovers that he has left her not only pennyless, but in debt. So her friend, who was her gardner, hatches a plan to save Grace - she will start a grow op. It is the funniest movie ever!
