Our family nights are a treasure to me, and I have more than one but less than three notifications set on my phone for it every week. I love catching up on our favorite shows together. After several seasons of even the smashest of hits, we can run into diminishing returns and start looking for a fresh title to dive in to. It’s an adventure, watching a new show for the first time with your family. Luckily, we count on Netflix to deliver something new everyone can enjoy on a regular basis.
Grace and Frankie, Netflix’s new funny and fearless original comedy stars Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston. They offer up a thoroughly modern example of how today’s families change in unpredictable ways. When Grace and Frankie’s men leave after two decades of marriage to be together they find themselves facing changes that they never saw coming, but they manage to get bring it together with the help of their mixed-up family and a little humor.
