Trivia

During the third season, Robert (Martin Sheen) gets a lead role in a community theater production of "1776", playing John Adams. In his career, Sheen has often played real or fictional Presidents or President-adjacent politicians. Real-life politician roles for Sheen have included John F. Kennedy (in Kennedy (1983)); Kennedy's brother Robert F. Kennedy (in The Missiles of October (1974)); and Nixon administration White House Counsel John Dean (in Blind Ambition (1979)). Fictional Presidents played by Sheen have included seven seasons as President Josiah Bartlet on The West Wing (1999); the unnamed U.S. President in Medusa's Child (1997); and the sinister Greg Stilson in The Dead Zone (1983).

Worth watching, great cast that didn't disappoint.

I was pleasantly surprised by Grace and Frankie. So often lately I have been disappointed in spite of a stellar cast. In this case the cast lived up to their reputations and I have to commend Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen for their performances. Another reviewer who stated "The thing about dramedies is that you want them to both be funny and dramatically compelling (i.e. Transparent). Grace and Frankie wasn't especially funny. And the trite hippie/uptight odd couple theme undercuts the drama; how sorry can you feel for clichés?" I'm not sure if he actually watched more than the 1st episode and if he didn't he missed the best part as it did start off a bit slow but Grace and Frankie is compelling with several interesting stories to tell with humor thrown in where it was needed. I felt like I was peeking in on 2 real families as they dealt with life changing events. I liked this so much more than Transparent which I thought was one huge cliché. The writing here was so much better and didn't rely on continual shock value, excessive foul language, and gratuitous nudity to get the story told or to hold the viewers interest. The solid script and performances did that in Grace and Frankie.
