Happily Divorced

Happily DivorcedHappily Divorced, Even cute gets old. Usually, that little detail of life is more a blessing than a problem. Obviously, Fran Drescher has aged since her lovely star-making turn in 1993 to The Nanny, like everyone. If there were, first, would not be on TV Land, which is trying to franchise the middle-aged nostalgia. She remains a talented comedian. She still has that distinctive voice, the creeps. She remains a beautiful woman.

What does not seem to realize, at least in this semi-autobiographical show she and her ex-husband Peter Marc Jacobson have written to her is that she is not precisely the same beautiful woman who was 20 years ago.

Yet here she is, trying to get the exact same routine that worked for her in 30 years – the same contrast between the bodies come here sxy and funny voice-going-there – and not realize that not feel like it as it did then. The act is tired, and sometimes more than a little inappropriate. But the same can be said of her comedy of low performance, better waste John Michael Higgins Show in a stereotyped role as swishy gay husband Fran soon-to-be-ex.

The only surprise on Wednesday night is how the program could have a real life situation – Jacobson came out as gay after separately – and make it seem so divorced from reality.

The first problem is time. Drescher husband left after their marriage was over, when the fiction Fran (a florist here) receives word fell out of bed. Immediately after sex. Yes, that post-coital component results in a funny line in the series. (“I’ve never been with a man. Trust me, not so great.”) But her cheerful acceptance of the situation also strips divorced from what is at stake and the emotional weight it might have been.

Not that it would not be much weight in the real world here anyway, disregarding the tone-to interpretation-the-back-row, the glow illuminated cheaper production, and the feeling you get the network is as safe in order to smooth as possible.

As he did for companion hot time in Cleveland, TV Land has assembled some good performers here, like Rita Moreno and Robert Walden as parents Fran and DW Moffett as a potential boyfriend. And as hot, the network seems that the mere collection of talent is enough.
