News & Interviews for Grace and Frankie: Season 1
Grace and Frankie is not entirely worthy of them, which is disappointing, especially since its co-creator, alongside Howard J. Morris, is Marta Kauffman, a co-creator of Friends.
It's hard to classify "Grace and Frankie" except to say it's splendid television.
The opening episode creaks and groans under the weight of a malnourished premise that feels like an update of an old movie, say, The First Wives Club. The setup is stagey, the dialogue slack (or -- worse -- obvious).
Perhaps one of Grace and Frankie's strongest moves, especially in early episodes, is not to dump a ton of backstory on the audience all at once, especially when it comes to the lives of the children.
