Church's performance is thoroughly touching as Robert.

Sarah Jessica Parker's return to HBO has a bit sunnier and less technical approach this time around.

The cast all knows how to pull their weight, but its a strain. The writing gives them few things to grasp up on to elevate the show.

Sarah Jessica Parker-fronted HBO dramedy is still perceptive and witty, but season two's sense of relief feels unearned.

It's nice how nebulous the show kicked off this season, even though the non-reaction to that dramatic event that ended season one is a bit anticlimactic.

For some of us it's a little too real to be funny.

But it enables Divorce to show how these characters, like a lot of us, repeat the same patterns over and over again no matter who our partners are.

Perhaps the new showrunner, Jenny Bicks, has realised that we can bear even less reality than we used to, now that it presses in on us on all sides like never before every time we look at a screen or read a headline.
