Grace and Frankie

Postby Minnie Cheddars » 13 Dec 2020, 21:31

I'd had suspicions that this show was a bit too twee for my taste but started watching a few weeks ago. I'm way behind where the series is now but is anybody else hooked? Everyone is so beautifully cast and it's pant pissingly funny. Tomlin is a dream.

I'm sure it has already jumped several sharks by now but- it's great, innit?

I’ve been trying to find the house Saul and Robert buy after they sell the old one. Incredibly there are all these fan pages dedicated to that stuff! But that house is something else. I also wouldn’t mind Babe’s old house...

Yeah, the house on the beach would do me just fine.

Love Lily Tomlin.

Came across the series while idling around on Netflix - six seasons already? Wow

I'm still in Season 1, and not sure whether the guys' relationship is credible, but the whole thing is beautifully written and acted - great, intelligent sitcom.

I think it starts off slightly unbelievable but definitely deepens.

I love the relationship between Frankie and Grace’s hotshot daughter. It’s an amazing dance.

The sharks are jumping everywhere at the moment but I can’t say that it’s dulled my enjoyment at all!

I watched the first few years. Rebecca is a fan. She’s kept up with it. Very well done and as you said, Tomlin is a dream.
