HBO Series: Divorce

divorceBack in the day, I was a huge Sex in the City fan. I loved the dynamic of the four very different women together going through polar opposite lives, but still remaining friends. It was a teenage version of me that came to believe that was how life was going to be following marriage, kids, careers, etc. I’d work until lunch, go out with my girlfriends for a bite to eat before heading back to my job, then go home to my husband and kid(s). Sex in the City gave my young self a glimpse into a future I desired and aspired to. Part of the reason was because Sarah Jessica Parker was a writer as well, so it all just fit nicely into my young mind’s plan.

Now Ms. Parker has a new show called Divorce on HBO. The very name itself deterred me for months, but I finally sat down and watched the pilot episode. The show is only a half hour long, but upon finishing the first episode, I moved happily along to the next. In no way, shape, or form, do I desire the life Ms. Parker is now taking on as her Frances character as I was drawn to her Carrie character, but instead I’m drawn to the humor strategically placed throughout this series. Grant it, I’m only on episode three which is now playing as I write this, but Thomas Haden Church is perfect in this role! He literally has the best, most wittiest lines filled with dry humor and perfect delivery. He makes this show for me. Can’t wait to get to episode four.
