Creators: Marta Kauffman, Howard J. Morris
Cast: Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Sam Waterston
This series is on Netflix and it is a senior series as I call it but it is really for all ages because this one does not fell old and out of date. It is funny and even touching, I do not want to give it away just in case you did not see It. The premise is simple. Two couple goes out to dinner they known each other for years and the husbands has an announcement to make which all hell will break loose after that.
Jane Fonda and lily Tomlin together finally is a god sent here. They are perfect for each other. Fonda plays a retired cosmetic executive who has a certain fragility and vulnerability. she lives in a constant state of glacial perfection. while Lily is this woman still stuck in the 70’s and has this free-spirited mind. She is a painter who teaches art to con artist. They wind up living together and that is call for some doing on both part. Grace and Frankie has to pick up the pieces and move on with their life. The children are in shock too and can not believe this is going on. as the episode go along the series gets better and better. It is 13 episode of 35 minutes and it is shot like a film. Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen are perfect for one an other great acting there. It is addictive and you will find out that they have dysfunctional family as well. Martin Sheen plays a divorce lawyer how ironic is that. Grace and Frankie is smartly written and funny. It is quality TV here big time. It is a bit predictable but who cares enjoy the ride and have fun with it.
