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. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

Underrated
9 January 2018 | by madams2010See all my reviews

I think that Grace Under Fire was an underrated gem of a situational comedy series. Maybe it is because it was always pretty much overshadowed by the much more successful (and just as good) series Roseanne, which also featured a lower middle class struggling/working mom in middle America played by a quality standup comedienne. Roseanne Barr/Arnold's show actually probably was better but it got all the accolades and Grace Under Fire got none. I guess it's kind of like playing in the NBA when Michael Jordan's Bulls were dominating the sport. Brett Butler was great though, the story lines were realistic and meaningful, the jokes were very funny, the supporting cast was great. It's too bad the show completely fell apart in the end, I guess due to some personal problems of its star, because it was a great sitcom.
