Watch Grace and Frankie online free – I started watching it randomly and was very surprised, I simply loved it. Original, funny and entertaining. It is so nice to see older people and how they still, when you are supposed to have everything figured out, have the same problems you have when your young, you really never grow up I guess. They nailed it with the casting, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, love them, so funny and such beautiful ladies. As, Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen make it look so natural as an older gay couple. Different personalities that understand each other, just love the characters. Life is always full of changes. Just refreshing, very human. Laughed out loud in the first episode. Must Watch.

Review Grace and Frankie by Dbkdances – Fonda and Tomlin hit it out of the park
I binged the series over a 2-day period and wished there was more. The characters were well developed and the whole thing was very entertaining. It covered many bases that divorce can bring about to family and friends, and dealt with issues of loss, honesty and aging, among others.
I wish Sheen and Waterston had had greater chemistry between them, but their interactions with the family members were believable and poignant. I especially enjoyed June Diane Raphael and Baron Vaughn, as two of the four adult children.
What I can’t decide is who I liked better, Fonda or Tomlin. In each case, they braved characterizations that were vulnerable and multi-faceted. In the case of each, this is their best performance, and the two together were phenomenal. Funny one moment and heart-tugging the next.
This is an adult story, in the best sense of the word.
Review Grace and Frankie by Gregorybnyc – Fonda & Tomlin Are Magic Together
I will always love Lily Tomlin. I always enjoyed Jane Fonda in her youthful movie star mode, but since she came out of retirement, she elevates everything she’s in. I think she was the primary reason I kept watching Newsroom for three seasons. I kept waiting for her every appearance. In Grace and Frankie, Tomlin and Fonda have to overcome a rather unbelievable situation–that is to face the fact that they husbands they have been married to for over forty years have somehow falling in love and intend to marry each other. Relegated to a kind of “Odd Couple” status, they end up living in a Malibu beach house their husbands bought years earlier. Each couple used the house on separate weekends. Now Grace and Frankie have to pick up the shattered pieces of their lives and move on. Jane Fonda as Grace is at her brittle comedic best. She delivers in spades, looks stunning in her latish 70s and plays off Lily Tomlin’s hippy-esque character with spunk and funny nerve. Grace has to face the fact that she’s an uptight, judgmental pain in the ass. And Tomlin’s Frankie is just the person to remind her over and over again. The scripts are tightly funny. The interplay between the two ex-couples is expert. Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen have nearly thankless roles as the two spouses who dump their wives, but they handle the dialog ad the romantic banter with dignity. But let’s face it, you’re waiting for Grace and Frankie to spark off each other. It’s not the kind of laugh-out-loud absurdest insults The Golden Girls hurled at each other with such glee, but the humor is key here. There is is just enough drama to remind us of the absurdity of life. I couldn’t wait to watch this show when it was announced. Fonda and Tomlin were terrific with Dolly Parton in Nine to Five, but they are even better here. This is a terrific show. I’ll stick around as long as these two glorious stars are here to make us laugh and cry.
Review Grace and Frankie by Michael Sweet – Superb – A brilliant series full of talent
This is a brilliant and timely series. Sheen, Waterston, Fonda, and Tomlin. I’d guess nearly 200 years of combined acting experience. It shows. The writing in this series is witty and attentive to popular culture. It gently picks away at the nonsense in our contemporary lives and exposes the raw human condition. The only thing that eats at me a little is the upper-class white privilege that penetrates throughout. Despite this, the series makes some very real, critical, and timely social commentary. At the very moment that the Supreme Court of the United States debates gay marriage, we have Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston – two very straight and very accomplished actors – kissing on the screen.
Having met Jane Fonda, Lilly Tomlin, and Martin Sheen, I can tell you that these actors care deeply about their work and the role it plays in advancing social justice.
Sadly, many will critique this show along political lines – whether they support equal rights or not. Watch it for yourself, it’s good TV.
Review Grace and Frankie by Michael Sullivan – Simply Charming
Though I see where one may feel it’s dull or “Flat” as one reviewer called it. It’s because this show has a sense of honesty and a realistic charm to make you forget its a show and not something happening to a friend. When something seems real it loses a bit of edge, real isn’t sexy (girls wearing black thongs every night sexy/not real, ugly laundry or period panties so not sexy/ oh so real).This gem of a show has Tomlin, Fonda, Sheen and Waterson, Living Legends and they prove it in each scene. The history their characters have in some part feels more authentic do to the history the cast must actually have. Years working in the same industry, on a number of projects together (West Wing, Newsroom, 9 to 5, to name a few). The added connections brought by their children brilliantly played by Raphael, Vaughn, Decker and especially Ethan Embry legitimizes the story because no matter what we do it always effects our kids even if they’re grown. The revolving door of great guest stars is that perfect little finishing touch to an already great freshman year. I cant wait for more, it does not help that I too binge watched in one sitting just created a longer wait for my self.
Review Grace and Frankie by mmccord9126 – Up there with Friends, Northern Exposure,….
Grace and Frankie is a heartfelt comedy excellently portrayed by four veteran actors. This original comedy takes you into the lives of two couples and their families as they work through a major change in family dynamics. You’ll find yourself wanting to learn more about the four main characters and how they adapt to their ensuing life changes. You’ll find yourself empathizing with Grace and Frankie as they each reconcile with the end of their 40 year marriages. New opportunities for personal growth and understanding of different lifestyles create a platform for growth and understanding between all four characters. I watched all 13 episodes in 3 days and I did indeed laugh out-loud! Hats off to NetFlix for delivering a much needed adult comedy. Thank you to Lily, Jane, Sam and Martin for breathing the life into these characters.
Review Grace and Frankie by snowdogmom-710-805503 – Worth watching, great cast that didn’t disappoint.
I was pleasantly surprised by Grace and Frankie. So often lately I have been disappointed in spite of a stellar cast. In this case the cast lived up to their reputations and I have to commend Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen for their performances. Another reviewer who stated “The thing about dramedies is that you want them to both be funny and dramatically compelling (i.e. Transparent). Grace and Frankie wasn’t especially funny. And the trite hippie/uptight odd couple theme undercuts the drama; how sorry can you feel for clichés?” I’m not sure if he actually watched more than the 1st episode and if he didn’t he missed the best part as it did start off a bit slow but Grace and Frankie is compelling with several interesting stories to tell with humor thrown in where it was needed. I felt like I was peeking in on 2 real families as they dealt with life changing events. I liked this so much more than Transparent which I thought was one huge cliché. The writing here was so much better and didn’t rely on continual shock value, excessive foul language, and gratuitous nudity to get the story told or to hold the viewers interest. The solid script and performances did that in Grace and Frankie.
Review Grace and Frankie by Cfleszar – I can relate! Great show focused on Straight Spouses.
I’m five years out from disclosure on June 12. My ex and I are in a really good place. I’m no longer in love with him… but we love and care about each other a lot. We are very good friends and awesome parents together to our four young daughters. He has a serious boyfriend who seems like a good guy that has met the kids.
But no matter how good of a place we’re in, tgt (the gay thing) is something we never totally “get over.” The pain is too deep and life changing.
Watching Grace & Frankie, I started crying when Frankie went to her gay husband/best friend’s bed and cuddled. Totally me. I clung to him after disclosure. I found the most comfort in the arms of the person causing my pain. In many respects, my ex is like the character Sol. I pretty much cried through the first episode after that cuddling scene. … though laughing at the jokes, through tears that seemed to hit the mark in many ways. This show has people involved who have lived through this trauma. That is clear in so many ways that a non-straight spouse wouldn’t notice.
While this show isn’t the exact straight spouse experience, for entertainment, it is a massive flying leap in the right direction, many things are a true reflection of our experience. It not only puts the idea of straight spouses in front of the general public, it focuses a show on their pain and process more than anyone else has dared to do.
If a show or movie reflected the true experience of a str8, no one would produce it or watch it yet. No one could tolerate a show about my bawling, vomiting, curled up in a ball on the cement basement floor under a shelving unit, wishing the earth would suck me in…. while being unable to answer the calls of my children trying to find me. Weeks in, it would celebrate my victory of managing to make Mac&Cheese. That show would have no viewers resulting in no one being exposed to straight spouses… or having a clue that it hurts.
I am grateful for this show and the huge impact it’s making. It gives the entertainment industry permission to share the straight spouse experience in an honest manner. It’ll only become more honest and true as the industry and audiences become comfortable with it.
Thank you for this show!
Review Grace and Frankie by Siobhan Lydon – They have a great concept and don’t ruin it
The writers have a great concept, stellar cast and unlike most films / shows these days, they don’t totally wreck it.
The concept is simple – two straight married couples break up after 40 years of friendship when the husbands decided to marry each other. The wives help each other recover by moving in with each other.
The natural humour comparison is with ‘9 to 5′ when Fonda, Tomlin and Parton set a new bar for humour’. The story is far from reality because no wife would be that easy going and certainly won’t go to the husbands wedding without a flame-thrower.
Michael Sheen and Sam Waterston are a novel couple, surprisingly relaxed about coming out after sneaking about for 20 years.
There are no ‘belly laughs’ but it is enjoyable. As we say in Ireland ‘Up with This Sort of Thing’.
