I didn't exactly binge watch the second season of Grace and Frankie on Netflix. I spaced it out, savoring each episode. Still, I am in withdrawal.
If you have not seen it, it stars Jane Fonda as Grace and Lily Tomlin as Frankie.
Their husbands of forty years were partners in a law firm, and apparently, partners in another sense as well. When same sex marriage is legalized in California, the husbands confess to an on-going affair with each other and announce that they are seeking divorces so that they can finally marry and share a life together.
Grace and Frankie are devastated. Although they were never close, never had anything in common, they end up living together and trying to adjust to lives they had never planned on living.
I really love the show. This season dealt with infidelity, unexpected illness, assisted suicide, sex and dating in one's seventies, an adopted child seeking out his birth mother, substance use and abuse, and just the stuff of life and family relationships.
The thirteen episodes were just not enough for me.
Here is a trailer of the first season.
