TV Junkie: Tuesday Night Picks
Am sorry to report the K-Ville is nothing more than another cop show. A shootout an car chase 8 minutes into it? Tough guy Anthony Anderson 's character crying in the first 15 minutes? I don't know how this show could redeem itself, I essentially tuned out after the first 20 minutes.
I'll tell you what though, Saving Grace somewhat redeemed itself what with Holly Hunter's bare butt being the focal point of the first half of the show. Hunter's gutsy move brought a lot of humor back into the series which has become a bit lackluster over the last few weeks. They gotta stop the gimmick of Earl sprouting wings dramatically and taking off every 10 minutes though.
