Holly Hunter has tackled so many different projects in her career, and it was enlightening to see what she would bring to this new series. An obvious character study on self realization, you get pieces of her "smarmy" selfish persona from LITTLE BLACK BOOK, yet she has the edginess protrayed in THRITEEN. Hunter has that "well-liked" personality, and the new series makes you want to know more about her.
After meeting Earl, and finding out she shares the dreams with a death row inmate, you can nearly feel the physical flinch she exhibits in the next "near sex" encounter she has with her married friend. The gears are set in motion, and she begins to take a second look at her life, through God's eyes.
I thoroughly enjoyed the season premier and plan to continue watching to see what direction she intends on taking!
