Grace And Frankie Series One And Two DVD Box Set Review


Good Morning Lovelies,

Since it premiered on Netflix’s, Grace and Frankie, has taken the world by storm and rightly so lovelies, as it is one of the best comedies around at the moment!

Starring Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin, the show sees the pair coming to terms with their husbands leaving each of them to be with each other and the friendship and hatred that the two ladies build together afterwards.

Three series in and the show can still make us laugh as much as it did the first-time round. Mostly due to the amazing comedy talents of Lily Tomlin. There is a sense of independence with this show, as it provides a difference take on an issue that hasn’t been explored before I don’t think, with added laughs and comedy that reflects the same great elements as other hit comedies taking on genuine issues, such as Transparent.

However, the show is in a league of its own when it comes down to the way in which the service has provided it to us. With the ability to binge-watch all of the episodes at once, this show is one that you can do just that. Grace and Frankie feel likes friends who have invited you to come around and you end up watching them explode in front of you. A fly on the wall kind of show, where you need cocktails and side friends to get you through it.

The show is also a clever piece. With so much news and evidence highlighting ageism in the world of entertainment, Grace and Frankie is a huge step in the right direction. People know that Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin can lead a show and Netflix have given them this show to do just that. 

A huge middle finger to the other networks or streaming channels around. And even more so now that the first two seasons have been released on DVD, with the new seasons currently waiting for us all online.  

Netflix have taken a great cast and given them a delightful story to tell and there so I am giving it…
