Second thoughts about the series
- Grace and Frankie: Series 2 review by CW
At first I thought that it was slow moving and a bit tired. Mostly I liked watching Jane Fonda, as beautiful and exciting as always. I think she nailed the role. ( if you haven’t seen her in Klute, do yourself the favour of watching that chilling brilliant movie) Then I started paying attention to aspects of the series that made it important to me. The stars are older women and men. The list of producers includes several women inc Fonda & Tomlin. There are women and men of various races and sizes. No big deal is made of this, they are just people, not token roles. The lead men are gay and their families come to accept this. So what initially seemed to me as just a silly light comedy now has importance in the diversity of the cast and crew.
