Series 5
20 January 2019 | by backofthevanSee all my reviews

I certainly thought Grace and Frankie was fresh air during the first season, but it has deteriorated dreadfully since then. Series 5, and I endured the entire 13 episodes, was stultifying when it wasn't beyond silly.

Frankie is no longer just "endearingly kooky", she's deranged. Grace is still an uptight control freak well on her way to joining Frankie in Loonyland. Mental illness is not the laugh riot it used to be (<- sarcasm).

This show is allegedly a comedy. Apparently producers/writers/directors think idiotic, petty arguments are hilarious. They're not. Most of us get enough family drama in our "real life", so I don't know why anyone thinks audiences want to see a bunch of immature, selfish, delusional rich people argue endlessly. Comedy this is not. I kept waiting for at least a glimmer of humour, but very little ever showed up.

Grace and Frankie is now nothing more than a dumb sitcom. What a disappointment.
