5 More Anti-Rom Coms for Fans of HBO’s Divorce
When we heard that Sarah Jessica Parker was going to be in another HBO show, we squealed with excitement. Little did we expect her new show to be this honest, raw and downright funny. But after the season finale, we’ve got (at least) another year to wait until we find out the final fate of Frances and Robert’s marriage. So, while we’re waiting, we’ve rounded up five more shows everybody who loved Divorce should start streaming ASAP.
The exact same creative mind that put forward Divorce wrote (and stars in!) one of our favorite new shows ever, Catastrophe. The hysterical show has a lot of the same features as Divorce — namely, very funny couples just trying to figure life out — but a much more positive story line. Check out the first two seasons on Amazon. (Photo via Amazon)
IF YOU LIKE DIVORCE COMEDIES, WATCH GIRLFRIEND’S GUIDE TO DIVORCE
The saddest times in someone’s life sometimes make for the funniest TV shows. If you love comedy in a terrible situation, check out this show about a self-help guru whose own life falls apart around her. It’s available for streaming from Netflix. (Photo via Bravo)
IF YOU LIKE FUNNY LOVE THAT DOESN’T WORK OUT, WATCH LOVESICK
When this show originally premiered on Netflix, it was called Scrotal Recall. It has since changed its named but kept its deadpan brand of humor. The show is basically about two friends who are in love with each other but too deeply involved to ever fully admit it. It’s one of those beautiful, rare shows that elicits both genuine tears and laughter. You can stream it now from Netflix. (Photo via Netflix)
IF YOU LIKE FUNNY LOVE THAT DOES WORK OUT, WATCH YOU’RE THE WORST
Just because you’re dysfunctional doesn’t mean you’ll (necessarily) have a dysfunctional relationship. This very funny (anti)rom-com is about two people who are both very anti-relationship, but end up falling into the perfect relationship with each other. But the road to love is full of unexpected bumps. You can watch it from Hulu and FX. (Photo via FX)
IF YOU LIKE BADLY MATCHED COUPLES, WATCH LOVE
We all fall for the wrong person at one time or another — but perhaps with the best intentions. This series follows a burgeoning relationship in Los Angeles that’s doomed from the beginning when a “cool” girl falls for a self-proclaimed “nice guy.” You can watch it now on Netflix.
