Sarah Jessica Parker and Thomas Haden Church in Divorce

There is a caustic cynicism about Divorce that makes it irritating and totally watchable. Maybe it’s the fact that post-SITC Sarah Jessica Parker has taken a role that seems a echo how we all expected Carrie’s life to pan out  – or, more likely, it’s because Sharon Horgan’s writing is pretty much on point every episode.

So while Frances (SJP) and onscreen ex-spouse Robert (Thomas Haden Church) have gone their separate ways their habitually chaotic existences mean they’ll continue to cross paths and get their kicks from verbal sparring.

This week, Frances supports her best friend Diane as her husband
serves hard time, while Robert prepares for a new marriage. Lessons never learned.

Divorce – Monday at 10.10pm on Sky Atlantic and Now TV.
