In Treatment is a new HBO show and one I am very much liking reading closely.
It's brutally honest and brutally emotional. It's also brutally literary. Here is a statement I read on imbd.com "When the narcissistic thrill of being a gifted therapist wears off, everything starts to make its way to the surface." I concur. Fully.
In Treatment is one reason to watch HBO or TV for that matter. I recommend the series most actively. The death of Alex, the uber-achieving pilot, was most sudden this week and the way the week's episodes dealt with it reinforced the notion that this is indeed a show worth watching. It's raw, emotional, real, and therapeutic on some level.
