This is one of the best shows I have ever watched: gritty, tender, and true to life. The relationship Grace shares with each of her co-stars is classic Holly Hunter but none more so than with Earl. The friendship she shares with Rhetta truly makes me wish I had a friend like Grace or Rhetta. I love this show and am so sad it ended prematurely!
