BAT­TLE OF THE SEXES!

In Touch (USA) - - Sneak Preview -

How do you go from eight years of a happy mar­riage — to want­ing to blow some­one’s head off ? What if it hap­pens to us?” asks Frances (Sarah Jessica Parker) of her hus­band, Robert ( Side­ways’ Thomas Haden Church), af­ter wit­ness­ing a birth­day party ar­gu­ment be­tween mar­ried friends that ended in gun­fire and a heart at­tack. It’s as Car­rie Brad­shaw-es­que of a ques­tion as view­ers will get on this dram­edy, which — de­spite SJP’S pres­ence — is NOT Sex in the Sub­urbs. On the provoca­tive pre­miere, we quickly find out that the pas­siveag­gres­sive ten­sions be­tween Frances and Robert (who have two chil­dren) have come to a head, lead­ing Frances to re­veal that she wants a di­vorce to a stunned Robert. But that’s not the only rev­e­la­tion on this roller coaster of an episode, which lays a foun­da­tion for an in­tense ex­plo­ration of a mar­riage’s break­down. With SJP as our flawed but re­lat­able hero­ine in a scathingly funny series, we’re sign­ing the pa­pers on this di­vorce!
