Before the New TV Season Begins... Catch Up on Seasons Past!

The new TV season is just a couple of weeks away now, but the premiere dates for both new series and existing shows are scattered throughout the fall. Here, a two-part guide to TV-on-DVD box sets to help you fill your tube-watching hours during these last pre-season weeks (part two follows on Thursday)...

 

 

Saving Grace -- Season One (Fox) -- Holly Hunter has garnered well-deserved Emmy and Golden Globe nominations for this TNT drama, about an Oklahoma cop (Hunter) who's easily as messed up as any of the perps she chases. Grace Hanadarko is a gritty boozer with a chain-smoking habit, a foul mouth, a habit of sleeping with way too many men (regardless of their marital status) and some hefty emotional baggage (her sister died in the 1995 Oklahoma City bombing), and, on some days, Grace just isn't a very likable character. The show, again, thanks to Hunter, is highly watchable, though, and one of a --  thankfully -- growing number of dramas and comedies (Samantha Who?, The Closer and 30 Rock, for example) that revolve around fantastic female characters.
