F*ck! Grace and Frankie is cuming to an end!
September 4th, 2019 under Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin. [ Comments: 1 ]


Netflix announced today that they picked up Grace and Frankie for a seventh season even before the sixth one airs. That is the good news. The bad news is that it will be its last one.

Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin had this to say about their show ending, “We’re so grateful that our show has been able to deal with issues that have really connected to our grand generation. And their kids, and amazingly, their kids as well!” Then they added, “We’ll miss these two old gals, Grace and Frankie, as much as many of their fans will, but we’ll still be around.” Which is good news to hear because Tomlin just turned 80 and Fonda is a year older.

However, they do not look anywhere near their ages. I guess all of that pot, yam lube and vibrators is their secret! I would not mind growing old with those things. Who would?

It is references like that that will make me miss this show. I wish it did not have to end, but at least we have two more seasons.

How can you have a Laugh-In special without Goldie Hawn?
May 9th, 2019 under Goldie Hawn, Lily Tomlin, Netflix. [ Comments: none ]


Before Goldie Hawn won an Oscar, she was on the variety show Laugh-In. The late ’60s and early ’70s weekly comedy show had people laughing until hurt, and she was one of their brightest stars.

Therefore, you would think that Netflix would have included her in their special Still LAUGH-IN: The Stars Celebrate. However, for some reason, she is not there. While Dick Martin and Dan Rowan have a good excuse for not being part of it (they are no longer with us), there is no excuse for her not being part of it.

While she is not in to laugh, Lily Tomlin, Ruth Buzzi and JoAnne Worley will be. They will be joined by a bunch of people who were born or not even born when it originally aired. People like Neil Patrick Harris, Tiffany Haddish, Chelsea Handler, Taye Diggs, Maria Bamford, Margaret Cho, Ron Funches, Nikki Glaser, Lisa Ann Walter, Mary McCormack, Bobby Moynihan, Cheri Oteri, Rob Riggle, Jeff Ross, Tony Hale and Natasha Leggero.

I wish the networks would bring back variety shows like this and the other ones from the ’60s and ’70s. I used to love watching them in syndication when I was growing up. They taught me how to laugh and we need more laughter in the world.

I can watch Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda talking for hours
January 22nd, 2019 under Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin. [ Comments: none ]


Lily Tomlin and Jane Fonda sat down for Wired and answered the Web’s Most Searched Questions. We did not learn anything new about them, just that they are so good at playing off of each other. I love Grace & Frankie and I know it has another season after this upcoming one. But I wish Netflix would give them a show where they just answer our questions. I would binge that over and over again.

Grace and Frankie
January 19th, 2018 under Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Netflix. [ Comments: none ]


Grace and Frankie is back for its fourth season on Netflix now for you to stream all 13 episodes and this might be the best season yet. There is love, new life, death, family and most importantly laughs!

The season starts off with Frankie (Lily Tomlin) still living in Santa Fe with Jacob (Ernie Hudson), but she needs to fly back to LA to go to Bud (Baron Vaughn) and Allison’s (Lindsey Kraft) baby reveal party.

When she gets to the house, she shared with Grace (Jane Fonda), her former roommate found a new one to live with her. Sheree (Lisa Kudrow), Grace’s manicurist, is the complete opposite of Frankie, so of course she hates her. Frankie will do everything in her power to get rid of Grace’s new BFF, but that is proving harder than she thought. Until they find something to bond over.

Talking about bonding, Robert (Martin Sheen) and Sol (Sam Waterston) are not. Their marriage is in trouble as Robert gets more involved with the plays he is doing. Sol wants to protest more, but his husband is too busy to do it. Things are so bad between them, they decide to go to a therapist who tells them to see other people. Will they do it?

This season, Frankie is healthier, but Grace is not. Her knee is giving her problems and it is becoming harder for her to get around. Because of that it makes her feel old. So old, she thinks that she needs to break up with her boy toy Nick (Peter Gallagher) because of it. When he refuses, she decides to show him her real face to see if he still wants her. In a revealing scene, she takes off all of her makeup and we get to see what a bare faces Fonda looks like. Will he stay with her?

With all of that they still have time to sell their vibrators, deliver a baby, commit a few crimes, break up with their lovees and still be there for each other when they really need it. And they are going to need it. Especially since one of them is dead.

The whole season comes together with an ending that sets up for the fifth season they better get. This show might have an older cast, and people of all ages can enjoy. I have been watching a lot of Golden Globe winners and they have all been disappointing me. Then I watched all 13 episodes of this season and I was reminded that television can be great. It can also leave you feeling happy. The chemistry of this cast grabs hold of you and never lets you go. That is why before you know it, you have binged all 13 episodes and you cannot wait for the next season to premiere. Which they better be filming as you read this.

Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda & Taylor Schilling piss off James Corden!
May 4th, 2017 under James Corden, Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin. [ Comments: none ]


James Corden was so excited to try a new bit with Lily Tomlin, Jane Fonda & Taylor Schilling on The Late Late Show that he created a song and dance number for it. Only problem is when he gave the Netflix actresses a choice whether to choose the Mystery Door or continue the interview, they picked the latter. The CBS host was so upset, you could see he was about to cry. It didn’t help that Fonda was such a bitch to him. Which I really liked. She should be bitchy more often because I like it, I really like it.
