I am going to try and share more of my favourite finds on my blog in the future. I see things all the time that I think are so cool or that really interest me. However, I seem to want to have a few items bulked together to make a “segment” before I write it (that is the TV person in me, I guess). Unfortunately, they get forgotten or other things come up that push them to the side. So, I’m just going to post my favourite and interesting finds, as I see them!
The first thing is I need to tell everyone who hasn’t watched Grace and Frankie to fire up Netflix and binge watch the whole season!
Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin (Grace & Frankie) are outstanding in this funny, sensitive and clever comedy about two women who’s husbands leave them after years of marriage. The hook, the husbands are gay and left their wives for each other.
The husbands, played by Martin Sheen and Sam Waterson, are great supporting characters, but it is all about Grace and Frankie. The ladies are total opposites, but are forced together by this life changing event to support each other in the next chapter of their lives.
For me, one of the most important elements of the show is the eye candy! The interiors of the homes and Jane Fonda’s wardrobe (she herself, is a study on how to age gracefully) is so distractingly fabulous that I have had to rewind and pause some scenes because I was paying more attention to the perfect beach house decor.
All in all this isn’t a show that will make you think deep or reimagine your life’s future. It is just plain good old TV. Just sit back and enjoy.
