Grace & Frankie

By Bob on March 9, 2017 3:49 AM

In the mood for a quirky comedy? Netflix' favorite female odd couple, Grace & Frankie, returns to the streaming service March 24th. For those of you who haven't discovered the quirky Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin series it may be one for your watch list.

Gal pals Jane Fonda and Lilly Tomlin are cooking up something quirky in Grace & Frankie

Grace & Frankie Season 3 -533.jpgIf quirky ain't your thang, you can stop reading now. It's an interesting sitcom set up. A straight-laced former cosmetics company founder (Fonda) and a counter-culture artist (Tomlin) are thrown together under unusual circumstances. 

Unusual may be an understatement. The geriatric duo move in together when their lawyer husbands (Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston) announce they are gay, in love and retiring to shack up together. Comedy ensues.

No Spoilers here. Season One had the pair adapting to their new single lifestyle after decades of marriage and raising children. Season Two pushed the quirky envelope a little further with Frankie becoming an entrepreneur (she creates a sweet potato based sex lube). 

Season Three has the pair joining forces to market a new line of vibrators for older women. If you're keeping score at home, we're a long way from My Three Sons here. Yeah, it can be a little R-rated at times. But for the most part it's just funny and a whole lot of fun. 

Fonda and Tomlin know their way around a buddy comedy and they seem to be having a great time. My guess is you will, too. 

Grace & Frankie Season Three (13 episodes) streams March 24th. Seasons One and Two are streaming now.

IT Cosmetics Travel Essentials

Next weekend, I'm flying to Florida to visit my sister Pam. My mom Patsy is also making the trip but she's driving. That means she has the luxury of taking four suitcases on last count compared to my one. (No, she's not moving in!)

For a split second, I was jealous of all that packing room. Just think how many pairs of shoes I could bring. But no worries, thanks to the anti-aging skincare and beauty pros at IT Cosmetics, I won't need anywhere near that much space. They've come out with convenient, grab-and-go sizes of some of their best sellers.
