Screen Time


In the season finale of Divorce titled “Alone Again, Naturally,” the song that was number one the day I was born (because I’m old) but that I never heard until the late ‘90s, I got a nice bit of middle-aged drinking on screen.

Molly Shannon’s rich Westchester lady character is getting drunk on Seven and Sevens (a drink I’ve never tried or ever seen anyone order) at a townie bar in Peekskill. At some point she gets cut off, “ma’amed” and kicked out…then proceeds to hit a bunch of cars in the parking lot, which did not read as realistic to me at all but the show, at times, leans towards broad comedy rather than subtlety.
