Grace and Frankie Season 3 Review

From vibrators to marijuana, Season 3 of the hit Netflix series, Grace and Frankie has it all!

After longtime law firm partners Robert (Martin Sheen) and Sol (Sam Waterston) made the shock revelation of their twenty-year homosexual affair, their respective wives, Grace and Frankie, were forced to live with each other in their shared beach house in Southern California.

Nonetheless, three seasons in and former rivals Grace Hanson (Jane Fonda) and Frankie Bergstein (Lily Tomlin), are closer than ever thought they are now faced with the prospect of living apart.

After two successful seasons, the release of Season 3 on March 24 was long anticipated and it does not disappoint. Although, at times, the show is equally hilarious and disturbing.

Particularly, when Grace and Frankie, women in their 70s, design their own vibrator, “to take into account their arthritis”, after Grace struggled with an inferior vibrator at the end of Season 2. While the incident last season was awkward, it is far surpassed when Grace and Frankie realise they have asked a church group to test their new product which features large labelling and glow in the dark buttons. It is this outrageous humour that hooks you from the first of the seasons 13 episodes.

Despite their new business making vibrators for older women, Frankie now faces the impossible decision; stay with her best friend, Grace, or move to Sante Fe with her handsome boyfriend Jacob. This quandary is the main challenge for the season and starts an emotional rollercoaster for Grace and Frankie.

Meanwhile, Grace and her ex-husband Robert find peace together following the death of his unpleasant mother, and Robert and Sol continue to struggle expressing their new homosexual lifestyle, after 20 years of hiding their sexuality from the world.

Season 3 of Grace and Frankie is a resounding success as it continues to tackle contemporary issues through hilarity and untoward situations, from the social taboo of masturbation, to older women dating and rarely explored expressions of sexuality.

Fans are now eagerly awaiting confirmation from Netflix as to whether the series will be renewed for a fourth season.
