  • Starring: Cole Sprouse, Casey Sander, Brett Butler
  • Summary: 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, Russell Norton, the bachelor pharmacist, and her ex-husband Jimmy and his odd-ball family.

    In Germany, the show is known simply as Grace.

    A brilliantly written, funny triumph for Butler, who could become the new Roseanne. [30 Sep 1993]

    On balance it's a good, fun show. But it's not a true standout.

    Grace Under Fire is as close to kitchen-sink comedy as TV gets these days- intentionally drab and persistently one-note, it's The Honeymooners if Alice had had kids and dumped Ralph.
