Welcome to another of my Sunday Shorts posts! Today, I'll be talking about yet another Netflix Original series, Grace and Frankie. Check out the trailer below ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ
I absolutely adore this show. I watched it all the way through twice within two weeks! I didn't mean to ahaha, I enjoyed it that much that I was looking for something similar in the "Because you watched 'Grace and Frankie'" section, but there was nothing similar enough there so I just watched it again!
Like always, I won't tell you more than what the trailer does. Basically, both Grace (Jane Fonda) and Frankie's (Lily Tomlin) husbands decide to divorce them, in order to marry each other! Whaaaaaaaaaat ヽ(ﾟДﾟ)ﾉ This is like, after fifty~ years of marriage, when they're in their seventies, and after spending that long together, thinking you know someone, to have that bombshell dropped? Phew, forget about it!
It's an incredibly good show! Honestly, it's fantastic at showing both sides to the story, because obviously at first you're angry at the husbands for betraying Grace and Frankie, but then you learn how they've been in love and hiding it for decades, and it's just a great and brutally honest example of how nothing is black and white, especially in relationships.
I enjoyed this so much. It's incredibly refreshing to have a show centered on the later stages of life, and to have a show focused on the end of a relationship, and how it makes way for new beginnings and connections. It was a fantastic reality check, as you honestly never know how your life is going to turn out, and the terrifying knowledge that you aren't always going to know the person you're with 100%, even if you've been together over 50 years, people always surprise you. What a terrifying thought, eh! (,,#ﾟДﾟ)
But no really, Grace and Frankie is charming, honest, funny, and so much more. I would really recommend it to anyone who fancies whiling away their Sunday afternoon on Netflix ahaha, it's very witty and genuinely lovely. Just very enjoyable to watch, really ＾ω＾
