Marriage: blessing or curse? This week, Nicole and Rolando discuss Ingmar Bergman's "Scenes from a Marriage," a 1973 Swedish mini-series that showed audiences the dissolution of a "successful" marriage.

Does it glamorize divorce or show the brutality of "love."
Then, they turn their attentions to HBO's remake, "Scenes of Marriage," starring Jessica Chastain and Oscar Issac. This time, the tables are turned when the gender roles are reversed. Does the series sustain its impact with the new changes? And, considering the popularity of "divorce stories," can this series break new ground?
