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.

Have you watched “Divorce” yet? Let us know what you thought!

xoxo,

Donna & Marley
