Never heard of The Grinder until last week...LOVE IT!
22 September 2018 | by kwallseaSee all my reviews

I never heard of this series when it was on. I just recently stumbled across it while Roku surfing. I loved it! Binge watched the entire season in one week. I laughed outloud during every episode. Rob Lowe was really great in this, and the supporting actors were also very good. WHY IS THERE SO MUCH CRAP ON TV WHILE GREAT SERIES LIKE THIS GET CANCELLED???
