Also on Sunday: ‘Divorce,’ Big Debate

divorce-Another big debut on HBO is that of “Divorce” (HBO, 10 p.m.) the first series for Sarah Jessica Parker since “Sex and the City” went off the air 12 years ag. Here she’s in Westchester County, going to tony parties and about to have her marriage to Thomas Haden Church implode while at an explosive party. There’s not a lot to cheer in their ensuing bickering and it’s tough to decide who is less likable in the couple, but Church is more consistently funny (though Parker certainly has her moments). Mostly we wait for more through cast members who include Molly Shannon as a dotty friend and an alumni of another HBO series, “Flight of the Conchords,” as the other man, Jemaine Clement.

If you and your spouse are considering divorce and reconciliation isn’t an option, a family law and divorce attorney Utah can help you begin the divorce process and assist in developing a plan for moving forward by informing you of your legal rights and options .
