In this irreverent and touching series, Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin star as Grace and Frankie, a pair of frenemies whose lives are turned upside down - and permanently intertwined - when their husbands leave them for each other. Together, they must face starting over in their 70s in a 21st century world.

After a lot of meandering this show really seems to have found its feet in the excellent penultimate and final episodes of season 2. Fonda and Tomlin are always a joy to watch despite the often lacklustre jokes and uneven tone, and Tomlin is surprisingly adept at bringing pathos to the more emotionally resonant material.

Feels dated. The "My houseband is gay" angle might have been all the rage in the 80's, now its just "so what". The "posh bitter WASP vs crazy new age hippie" freenemies relationship is forced and not funny at all. I'd rather watch "Golden Girls" than this.

Sol and Frankie are, rather ironically, the other characters in this show that feel like they have any chemistry together... except for perhaps Mallory and Coyote as well (also ironic). But even if the relationships/pairings feel a little forced, the humor is there, as well as well placed dramatic moments. And while the characters (read: Frankie) can be a little bit overdramatized in their characteristics, they do at least show character development as well. Definitely a show to binge watch on a lazy weekend.
