    Love it. Glad to see SJP again. Real writing.
  • Jul 22, 2019
    Neither brilliant nor original, Divorce is often funny and never boring. It won't become your favorite show, but it's a fun little escape where everyone is their own worst enemy and no one has any chance of finding personal redemption.

    I would love to know how this made it on HBO. SJP must have some power in the business because the show is not funny, and the writing is off. But the kicker in the new show is the fact she is playing and dressing just like carrie from Sex in the city. Her hair is the same too. Am I the only one noticing this? I can go on and on about this show but feel it won't be on much longer, yea!

    Boring. If HBO keeps making shows like this, people will cancel their subscriptions once Game of Thrones is over. B-O-R-I-N-G

    I love this show! SJP is brilliant and plays her character brilliantly with right amount of humour and self depreciation. I thought it was going to be sex in the city meets middle age crisis divorce.

    I enjoyed everything about this series; the music, dark humour, main actors and supporting cast. It was hard to watch at first, because of the subject matter, but then became quite compelling.

    Divorce left me wanting this couple to take five seasons to get this over with. Funny, snarky, and just so well written. SJP and THC do a magnificent job as do the supporting cast. The music supervisor here needs a shout out, would NOT be the same w/out the perfect soundtrack. This show is vastly under rated if you ask me, and possibly by those who have not gone through the twist and turns of a real marriage that comes to a slow... seeping..... end.

    I thought it was a highly entertaining series.

    Narcissistic and trite
  • Apr 08, 2017
    I am picky with half hour shows and the 'dramedy' tricky in general but all the more so with 25 minute episodes. I can't sustain attention for many other half hour shows other than curb and maybe a few others of various natures and networks ..... ANYWAY.... this show i loved and watched 6 in a row and last 4 next day. Also, some shows require a few episodes before you get into it ... this is awesome and u are into 15 min in, latest. Tell me it i'm wrong ..... no way and best THC EVA'!!! (thomas hayden church, to clarify) Made me really luke SJP ... i wad indifferent before. (Sarah Jessica Parker)
