All Critics (13) | Top Critics (2)

It's not the edgiest concept, but the value of friendship...should make for more great TV.

Grace and Frankie remains a beautifully warm American comedy.

Jul 24, 2019 | Full Review…

Through it all, the quartet of main characters all do some of the best work of their long careers.

Feb 7, 2019 | Full Review…

The pair may not have appeared on-screen together for nearly four decades, but the chemistry is certainly still there.

Jan 31, 2019 | Full Review…

It's funny, warm, refreshingly low stakes and just blissfully easy to watch and enjoy.

Jan 31, 2019 | Full Review…

It's the first sitcom since The Golden Girls that has offered an extended, nuanced portrayal of women's friendship in their 70s and 80s.

Jan 28, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Unfortunately, the show falters in its dismissive, stereotypical depictions of queer millennial culture, along with a weird time-warp in the finale. Nevertheless, Grace and Frankie is as hilarious and trailblazing as ever.

Jan 28, 2019 | Full Review…

The real reason to watch Grace and Frankie. Come for the lighthearted comedy, stay for the ungodly amounts of hot. You deserve it.

Jan 25, 2019 | Full Review…

It's not all pathos, though. You know Grace and Frankie is as wacky and empowering as ever.

Jan 24, 2019 | Full Review…

There's still plenty of fight left in these feisty women.

Jan 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Good thing they have each other, nerves of steel and wicked humour. And they don't go down with out a fight.

Jan 18, 2019 | Full Review…

Despite season five's flaws, Fonda and Tomlin do not disappoint. The more developed their characters grow and the deeper their friendship, the better Fonda and Tomlin's performances become.

    For me it's Losing steam

    I love it and have watched this season as well as all others over and over. This is a must see for the whole family.

    Lovin' every minute of it.
  • Apr 30, 2019
    Addictive! Love this series!
  • Mar 19, 2019
    Sumamente refrescante, la dupla de Jane y Lily son un acierto en todo momento. Reflexiva, divertida, en ocasiones sosa pero es parte de lo mismo. Sin embargo en esta temporada no pude encontrar nada que me sorprendiera.
  • Feb 20, 2019
    Season 5 has lost something. It's still entertaining but not as much as the previous seasons.
  • Feb 06, 2019
    This season was predictable and at times infuriating. Wasn't fun anymore and dragged on and on.
  • Jan 27, 2019
    I quite honestly can’t understand the high ratings for this show. With the really bad acting and unnecessary f bombs, among other things, this show is just painful to watch.
  • Jan 25, 2019
    Grace and Frankie Season 5 is just as amazing as seasons 1-4 have been. I miss them already and can't wait for Season 6! I want more now!!!!
