(NOTE: The following was originally part of the season 1 thread.) This thread didn't get much action after the initial comments, did it? I stayed with the show all the way through the first season, despite misgivings such as those outlined above, and I'm glad I did. The show turned out to be more about character than religion, and Earle became just one more mystery in the world -- less a proof of a divine plan than another question mark as to whether there really is one. And the writers kept pushing Grace's character further into darkness. The second season begins tonight, and I at least want to see what happens with the cliffhanger where we left things. "I'm just FedEx delivering the message." Now that's a great line, especially when the "message" is about as clear as mud. M.
