Storyline

After divorcing her abusive, alcoholic husband and recovering from her own alcoholism, Grace tries to rebuild her life and protect her children from making the same mistakes. Against this serious backdrop, this show is actually a comedy, finding humor in the relationships between Grace and her co-workers at the oil refinery, her neighbors Wade and Nadine, and Russel Norton, the bachelor pharmacist.

Trivia

Cans of President's Choice Cola can be seen being used by the fictional family of Grace Kelly. This brand of Cola is produced for Loblaw's food stores (mostly its subsidiary stores Real Canadian Superstore, Real Canadian Wholesale club and Extra foods) throughout Canada. Even tho President's Choice is sold and manufactured in Canada, they also have agreements to sell the "private label" brand in other supermarket chains. Two of those chains were Jewel Supermarkets (Chicago area grocery that is independent from Loblaw's - Grace Kelly's fictional St Louis area home, is in reality, located in a Chicago suburb. A show producer must have had a connection to Chicago, in some way, and was probably familiar with the President's Choice private label brand.) National Supermarkets, which was based in St Louis and was owned by Loblaw's, was the other chain that carried President's Choice. Grace Under Fire was filmed in L.A. but the show's location was in the St Louis area, which viewers can assume was where the fictional Grace Kelly See more »

Quotes

[Grace and Jimmy are talking about their past relationship]
Jimmy Kelly: Grace, I am truly sorry for what I did to you. Hell, if I was the man I was today, I beat the Hell out of the guy I was then.
Grace Kelly: You would?
Jimmy Kelly: Yep. You know, I wonder how that fight would turn out? I got more meat on me now, but I was one quick son of a gun back then.

A comedy with a somewhat realisitic outlook on life
20 March 2001 | by See all my reviews

A sitcom, that proved comedy could be down to earth. I enjoyed this show. It wasn't that bad. The strength it had was the characters. By season 5 the decision to get rid of one character altered the shows chemistry. However, BRETT BUTLER proved she had talent and the writing at times was not bad..in fact, the stories not bad either. GRACE UNDER FIRE, was about a working mom trying to keep her head above water. I enjoyed the performance of WILLIAM FICHTNER as SPARKS and "JIMMY" GEOFF PETERSEN....who could probably play a cop in a action move. The funny thing is by season 5 there seems to be a effort to move the character of grace and jimmy back together yet , this was hampered when the show was cancelled. The show was entertaining and can be seen in syndication. However, when it was released was very popular. The show took serious topics like alcohol and unrequieted love and spousal abuse and made us laugh and sometimes think. Not a bad show for ABC, in the day before the current rave REALITY BASED GAME SHOWS.
