SATC Meets Thirtysomething
30 December 2014 | by bohemedudeSee all my reviews

I started watching Girlfriends' Guide to Divorce because of the comparisons some were making to Sex and the City (which I loved). I'm also a huge fan of Janeane Garofalo.

To be honest, the show is not at all what I expected, but I do like it quite a lot. The premise is clever, with each episode being named for one of the "rules" from Abby McCarthy's book. The relationships between the three women are different than those of the SATC girls, but they are at a different stage of life -raising families and navigating divorce. Much of the writing and characterization reminds me of Thirtysomething.

Is the show going to last beyond the first season? I'm not sure... I can see why the show wouldn't appeal to the younger, target audience of SATC, but more sophisticated viewers might find it entertaining. I am writing this after seeing episode #5. I'm starting to know the characters and really investing in their stories. I am hooked!
