We have now both watched the first episode of Sarah Jessica Parker’s new show “Divorce” on HBO, and we both feel something is a little off.
Marley thinks it might be that they’re trying to insert too much slap stick comedy for what is otherwise a very dark and brooding show.
Also, she’s suspicious of SJP’s comedic chops. She’s never really proven herself to be a comedienne, and she certainly doesn’t here. Moments that are obviously supposed to be funny are either ill-timed or left to fall clunkily to the floor.
Donna also thinks the relationships are not as well established as they should be in a pilot. There are too many questions left unanswered.
Overall, we give it 2/5 Garys. Marley is making Donna watch the second episode for the team.
Stay tuned for the review.
