Review: Grace and Frankie Season 3 Episode 12 “The Musical”

This is Lily Tomlin’s Emmy submission. She provides a performance of such variation, of such unlimited magnitude and emotion that she perfectly captures every trait of her character. Much of that can also be said for Grace, with the writing giving the best representation of these characters, the way they deal with conflict and issues and their expectations of each other yet. Nothing is overly dramatic or exaggerated for effect and the writers were able to avoid making the pressures on Robert forced or contrived. Instead, there was a superb pairing of realism and situational comedy with sensational humour and powerful drama. It may play out pretty predictably, but the strong writing and brilliant performances make it an extremely enjoyable and heart-warming episode. I am just fearful where this Allison storyline is going… 9.5/10
