Discussion

How does this clip portray the four main characters?

How do we see age intersect with gender, race, and class in this trailer?

Do you think it’s an achievement to have a show where the two main characters are women over 70 and the secondary main characters are gay men over 70?

What other media portrayals about older women can you think of? How does this compare?
