Early Throwback Thursday Post-State Of Grace (2001-2002)

Outside of our families, our friends are often closest to our hearts. When we are young, our friends will shape our world and our world view as much as our families

In the short-lived television series State Of Grace (2001-2002), two young women have become friends in the mid 1960’s.

Emma Grace McKee (Mae Whitman) and Hannah Rayburn (Alia Shawkat) are best friends. Emma is Catholic and Hannah is Jewish. Against the changes that the world is experiencing in the mid 1960’s and the individual changes that we all go through during our preteen years, Emma and Hannah will face the world together.

This show, like many, did not last. While the idea of the show was interesting and used The Wonder Years as a model for storytelling, it was simply ok.

Do I recommend it? I would like to say yes, but I am more inclined toward maybe.
