Series Saturday: Grace and Frankie (Season 1)


Grace and Frankie is a Netflix original comedy series about two women in their 70s who bond when their husbands fall in love with each other. It’s a show about friendship, family and love in its many forms.

If you’re not sold already (and I don’t know how you can’t be?), maybe the cast will do it for you.

Jane Fonda plays Grace Hanson, a retired business woman with two loving daughters. She was married to Robert Hanson played by Martin Sheen. Frankie Bergstein (Lily Tomlin) is an art loving hippie was married to Sol Bergstien (Sam Waterson) and they have two adopted sons. The series follows the two families as they adjust to their new way of life and bond into one unconventional blended family.

To be honest, that’s all I want to say about it as I went into it knowing nothing and was hooked from the first episode. It’s hilarious and heartwarming, easy-going yet captivating. I can’t wait to see what else happens – season 2 has just been released but I have deadlines!
