5 Reasons You Should Spend Valentine’s Day Watching Divorce

  1. 1

    Relationship drama is funny — when it’s someone else’s.

    “Divorce” might seem like an intense name for a comedy, but as the bubbly Season 2 title sequence demonstrates, the show excels at finding the absurdity in serious moments. Whether it’s a sweet daughter turned eye-rolling teenager, married friends on the verge of killing each other, or your ex meeting someone new, Divorce gets into it.

  2. 2

    Divorce is relatable — whether you’re swiping, left, right or not at all.

    Recovering from a breakup? Looking for something new? Frances (Sarah Jessica Parker) and Robert (Thomas Haden Church) just split up and they get it. If you’re angry and want to feel understood, let Frances throw bricks on your behalf; if you’re ready to branch out, Robert’s new lady-friend will be an inspiration.

    It’s flu season. Make smart choices.

    Take a pre-emptive strike against catching anything. The wiser option: Throw on those warm socks and snuggle up for a night of biting comedy.
