There’s this horrible misconception that an engineering factory is a man’s world.

This show takes six of the USA’s best welders and metal workers and puts them to the challenge.

I can tell you now that the girls shock their male counterparts with the quality of their work.

This hilarious comedy stars Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin as Grace and Frankie.

And as long as they can remember, they’ve been rivals.

They however find they have something in common when they learn that their husbands have fallen in love with each other and want to get married.

As their lives appear to be falling apart around them, the ladies realise they can only really rely on each other.

It also stars Martin Sheen, who plays Grace’s husband and Sam Waterston, who plays Frankie’s husband, Sol.

They become best friends, they start interesting businesses together. They talk about issues as older women, when it comes to sex, when it comes to getting off the toilet, and how difficult it is. They address so many funny situations, but real situations.
