TV: Grace and Frankie – Season 1

Premiered: May 8, 2015

On: Netflix

Starring: Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen, Sam Waterston, June Diane Raphael, Baron Vaughn, Brooklyn Decker & Ethan Embry

9 to 5 costars Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda reunite in a comedy for all ages.

Grace (Fonda) and Frankie (Tomlin) are shocked when their business partner husbands (Martin Sheen & Sam Waterston) announce that they’re leaving the women for each other. To get away from their husbands, both women move into a co-owned beach house and have to learn to deal with each other.

This show mixes a great amount of comedy and drama, which rings true to real life. It begs the question: What do you do when you have to restart late in life?

While the older cast is at the forefront, their children play a large part as well. As Grace’s daughter, June Diane Raphael is a scene-stealer and comedy queen.

Final say: Though a little crazy, very touching. ★★★★☆
