Grace Under Fire, - Grace Under Fire was about a reguler family living life in the time they lived the 90's. Dealing with regular problems of family and life. Nothing different that works with different shows. But like other mother leads on different shows in this time it actually felt like they were a problematic family that had problems but still felt like a family. I caught a few episodes after the show ended and it still makes sence and still fits with how life is lived in todays world. And that's what made the show work and it's short life.
I love this shows I have to wach it every day. I really like brett butler. I think she is a great actress and comedienne. I like the episodes when she's dating Rick Bradshaw because he is funny and serious at the same time. I love that she constantly calls herself a tramp and a slut. I am so upset that I can't get the season on dvd. I think that is totally unfair. I wish I could be just like Grace. She is funny and outspoken and always has a good comeback. I just wish it wasn't over I wish it would comback or I wish I could meet her
Grace Under Fire is a show about a woman named Grace Kelly. She was a divorcee who was abused by her husband, because he was an alcoholic. She had three children Patrick, Quentin and Libby. Grace tries to protect her children from making the same mistakes as she did. Grace found humor in the relationships between her co-workers at the oil refinery, and her neighbors Wade and Nadine. This show was very witty and very humorous, to bad it ended after only five years.
I didn\'t get to see Grace Under Fire when it was running and I regret that! The value, for me, was the role modeling: having examples of how to face adversity in single mother living with humor and clarity. The use of humor for entertainment also had a possibly unforseen side effect of the use of humor for teaching. Grace is the main character who courageously, and with wit, becomes the head of household who is working her \"program\" and raising her kids on her own. The writing was great, the characters were developed, the tempo was fast, the situations believable - and all of this combined to make a truly enjoyable show. Bring it back!
This was an absoluterly fabulous show. I watch it when I can find it even though I have seen all of them before. Brett Butler is very funny and truly tells it like it is for single moms everywhere. The cast are all etraordinary actors and bring their roles to life. I don\'t know why they decided to end this program but I wish they had resonsidered. There is not anything on now that even comes close to being as real life as this show was. If you can\'t bring it back at least put it on more stations. BRING IT BACK!
Another decent "Blue Collar" comedy from the 80's. Brett Butler (the female comedian, not the male baseball player) was in the title role as Grace Kelly. She was a divorced mother working in a factory. grace was pretty good in this role. She was having problems with Alchohol abuse during this time so she was rumored to be hard to work with. The rest of the cast was pretty good nd included Casey Sander as Wade Swoboda, Lauren Tom as Dot, Tom Poston as Mr. Norton, Dave Thomas (of SCTV fame) as Russell Norton, Peggy Rea as Jean Kelly, Julie White as Nadine Swoboda, Alan Autry as Rick Bradshaw, Kaitlin Cullum as Elizabeth Louise "Libby" Kelly and Cole Sprouse as Patrick Kelly. a pretty decent comedy over all.
This is one of the best shows I personally have ever watched. Being a strugling single mother raising kids, I think this show is a wonderful indicator of how I and most sinle mothers have to look at life and deal with all the issues that life throughs at us. Grace is a wonderful example of just how strong women are, and how far we have come. I would like to see more women like Grace in real life, married and single. All women can take from this character and apply it to her on personal life.
I have watched this show for years. It is hilarious show helped by Grace's sarcatic comments and her children's (including Nadine and Wade) school and marital problems. I hope that this show is never taken off air, at least not until after a season boxed set, and Bret Butler will always remain sarcastic
Grace is a woman with problems. She has never denied that, but rather than let her past trap her, she laughs at it and used laughter and sarcasm to make her way through each day of her difficult life. As a divorced recovering alcoholic with three children, Grace fights hard for everything she has and will do whatever it takes to support her kids. Luckily, she has gathered a great support network of friends along the way. The show is enjoyable to watch with just the right combination of humor and drama. The main point, life isn't pretty, but it is what you make of it. And Grace makes a lot of what little is given to her.
the story is about Grace and her family. After divorcing her abusive, alcoholic husband and recovering from her own alcoholism, Grace tries to rebuild her life and protect her children from making the same mistakes. Against this serious backdrop, this show is actually a comedy, finding humor in the relationships between Grace and her co-workers at the oil refinery, her neighbors Wade and Nadine, and Russel Norton, the bachelor pharmacist.
I just find the remarks Grace makes really funny and the grace-jean thing is hilarious .
The cast is super , i totally adore the sprouse twins and jon paul steuer /later replaced by sam horrigan, who both played in the movie little giants.
I can remember watching this show when I was younger and I was just thinking about it the other day. Grace, the strong independent woman, raising her kids after hitting what seemed to be rock bottom. Grace gets out of a bad situation (divorcing her husband) and starting a whole new life for herself. The somewhat protective mother kind of shows women today that even if they hit a low in their life, and think they can't overcome it and build a new life, it is possible. And even when I was younger, I could understand the humor in this show. A-
