Critic Reviews for Grace and Frankie Season 2

All Critics (11) | Top Critics (6)

Grace and Frankie has its flaws, but it remains unlike anything else on television. It knows there are limits and ends to everything, and it's making the most of the time it has.

May 10, 2016 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

It's both heartwarming and obnoxious to see two women who are in their late '60s/early '70s form an organic bond.

Jan 23, 2019 | Full Review…

It's mostly an excuse to watch talented, older actors enact quiet tales of what life is like once reach your twilight years.

May 8, 2016 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

It's strangely fascinating, but almost never funny.

May 6, 2016 | Full Review…

Still slow-moving and unsurprising, Grace and Frankie's writing and humor ages better in a second season that feels more like a fully realized - and deeper-cutting - dramedy than its initial debut.

May 6, 2016 | Rating: 7/10 | Full Review…

Grace and Frankie has become, therefore, a show about letting go of grudges, being more accepting, and enjoying life -- all very good sentiments that surface rarely in most other current sitcoms.

A wonderful ride.

Jan 23, 2019 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Grace And Frankie really thrives when it comes to emotional, character-driven storytelling.

May 9, 2016 | Rating: A- | Full Review…

When they're together onscreen, they appear to be having a lot of fun, which is infectious.

May 5, 2016 | Full Review…

What the show does best is apply an unflinchingly honest comedic and dramatic eye to the realities of aging.

Top Critic

For a story about two women who've been betrayed, abandoned, and forced to rebuild their whole lives in their 70s, Grace and Frankie is a remarkably Zen show -- and, not coincidentally, a remarkably dull one.

Audience Reviews for Grace and Frankie: Season 2

    Finding its feet, funny and well written!
  • May 04, 2019
    This season was definitely an improvement on the last one and I'm so happy they are focusing more on the leading ladies and their relationship with each other. Sometimes a bit scattered in its focus but most of the problems I had with the show were gone by the 8th or 9th episode and I'm ready for the wild and fun ride I'm sure to be the next season. Some very funny moments like the tobasco throwing, the blood from the palm oil, and a lot more. 3.5/5

    i like watching the series but just want Frankie's character to be a little more grounded. I understand it is supposed to be entertaining but it gets irritating as she comes across as irrational and over emotional.
  • Jan 18, 2018
    Entire series seems to be a push for progressive liberal thinking.

    Season 2 is better than Season 1. Characters are more complete, the actors are feeling more comfortable and natural in their roles. Love the plots and sub-plots. Very very good series by this season.

    One of the better shows on TV. NO SHOOTING,KILLING, NO SENSELESS VIOLENCE, Never was a fan of Jane Fonda but she is great in this, All ways loved Lily Tomlin.. Love the show.
