12 Netflix picks for modern 'framilies.' | Dearest Geeks of Earth

Gone are the days when families were defined by cookie-cutter standards. And it’s awesome.

Traditional families have evolved into a beautiful kaleidoscope of “framilies” cobbled together from all kinds of combinations – friends so close they feel like family, single/married/divorced/adoptive/gay/straight/honorary moms and dads, cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents. Each unit is uniquely quirky, yet made of its own kind of special win.

Grace and Frankie, a new fun and fearless original comedy from Netflix featuring Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Martin Sheen and Sam Waterston, is a perfect example of how today’s families can blend in the best unexpected ways.

When Grace and Frankie’s husbands leave them after 20 years of marriage – to be with each other – the women find themselves facing a life change they never expected. But with the support of their newly blended family, and a perspective with a lot of humor, they get through it together.

Explore the things that make other families unique with these 12 picks from Netflix.
