Netflix series about gay husbands and spurned wives is remarkable

By David Hinkley
It's hard to classify “Grace and Frankie” except to say it’s splendid television. The cast alone makes it clear, if anyone still needed convincing, that Netflix is playing in the big leagues. Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin star as, respectively, Grace and Frankie, women in their 70s whose husbands leave them to marry each other. Grace’s husband, Robert, is played by Martin Sheen, Frankie’s Saul by Sam Waterston. All four are superb. [link]
