Binge Watch

I pay a fair amount to the cable company, but when I want to watch TV I turn to Netflix more and more.  The latest in my to-watch queue is a Netflix series...Grace and Frankie.
Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Sam Waterston, and Martin Sheen.

Remember the old series Thirty Something?  This is like Seventy Something.

The two men, who are long time law partners, announce that they want to be life partners as well.   The women, their wives of forty years, and who never actually got along all that well, end up sharing a house as they adjust to being single.   Lily Tomlin is a hoot.  Jane Fonda fits her part.  And there are no commercials.

I've been wondering if I should add that to my summer to-watch list. I just might, now! thanks!

I think this sounds like a hoot, but we don't hav Netflix.

This sounds like a lot of fun. We haven't had Netflix in such a long time.

We haven't joined Netflix either, at least yet. We already pay so much for our cable service. I hear, though, that many younger people are forgoing cable all together and just downloading programs from the Internet.

It's true. My son and his wife just recently gave up cable in favor of Netflix. They say they are saving money and haven't regretted the change at all.
Grace and Frankie, huh? I'll have to see if I can find that somewhere.

I don't know what I would do without Netflix and Acorn. I turn off my TV on Friday night and don't turn it back on until Sunday night or even Monday. I wish I could just do without it altogether, but I know I'd miss all the news programs and some of the cable shows. We did get rid of HBO, which helped. Grace and Frankie got better as it went along. I hope there's a second season.

Just wish we had Netfix in South AFrica - this series sounds right up my street. Will surf the net..... we also pay a lot for satellite TV here - very often nothing good to watch!

I had heard about this show, and I really want to see it! Thanks for the positive review.

Richard and I have been binge watching this series and LOVE it! It is funny and yet very poignant. I just recommended it to another grandmother.

I haven't seen these. I read about the series. It looks like a hoot for sure. I should check it out.

I can't stream Netflix but maybe I will rejoin the mail version and order the series. Sounds like one I would enjoy.

gigihawaii said...

It does sound like a hoot. Lol.

Sextant said...

That sounds like an interesting show. With Tomlin in it, it is almost guaranteed to be a hoot. Great actor.

I've seen them advertising this, but we don't get Netflix!

Sue Silva said...

It's awesome! Everybody should watch this. I can't wait for the next episodes!

Yes!! I've only watched four episodes so far, but I am hooked. I love netflix. Can't give up cable because of sports (football american and european) and other things, but more and more my go to TV shows are no Netflix. I also recommend Bloodline, Luther, and the Midsomer murders just for a start
