The third season begins with a series of strong events, with Robert deciding to go out to his mother after getting into trouble with Seoul. On the other hand, Grace and Frankie continue to argue about the shooting that has already happened at some point, and Grace and Frankie are working on a new business plan.
Yes, there is age-related humour, but it is used judiciously and credit must be given for the running gag about ergonomic sex toys... as well as this season's poignant storylines about a major health scare and forced retirement for some of the characters.
It's no surprise that sticking Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin in a scene together leads to comedy magic. Throw Sam Waterston and Martin Sheen into the mix, and it's like the show has it too easy when it comes to landing laughs.
