Critic Reviews for Divorce Season 1

All Critics (61) | Top Critics (31)

Considering all the stories about meet-cutes, romance and marriage on television these days, this is the perfect antithesis. In comedy form, of course.

Its characters and situations are alternately aggravating, humorous and, to a lesser extent, poignant. Parker and Church are fully in charge throughout as a perfectly imperfect duo. Yes, they're both that good -- in a series that demands just that.

I'm not beauty-shaming Parker. It's just that her unending composure, no matter how hard her character, Frances, suffers, undermines her overall dramatic and comedic impact.

It's the overall experience that hits hardest, and while delving into heartbreak may not be something we're all eager to become immersed in, the series' value on levels both informational and artistic is hard to deny.

Divorce does indeed tread a delicate line. But creator Sharon Hogan manages to find plenty of wry humor in domestic turmoil and there are some surprising turns along the way.

The show is funny but in a sad way, funny in an awkward-moments way.

Oct 10, 2016 | Full Review…

It's stale and it's depressing as hell.

Jun 21, 2018 | Full Review…

It's a draining, dark show, at many points a comedy in runtime only, which stretches for absurdity with a middling rate of success. But it has potential, and it's beautifully shot.

Jun 11, 2018 | Full Review…

There's strength in the show's subtleties, and while there are certainly flaws, it's the little moments that make Divorce special.

Dec 20, 2017 | Full Review…

The larger arcs - of how a private rupture develops formal contours, of how divorce undercuts the fantasy of self-discovery - make for compulsively watchable TV.

Audience Reviews for Divorce: Season 1


Haden Church is actually amazing in this failed HBO venture starring SJP. It mostly just shows how awful SJP is in this unfunny comedy.
