Treat Yourself – “In Treatment”…

In Treatment(HBO) is a drama series about a psychologist, 50-something Dr. Paul Weston (Gabriel Byrne), and his weekly sessions with patients, as well as those with his own therapist Gina (played by Dianne Wiest) at the end of each week. Each episode focuses on one patient’s weekly session with Paul and is formatted more or less as a “conversation“.

This series is absolutely fascinating!… It gives you a peek into the cobwebs and dark corners lurking inside each patient’s private lives, not to mention seeing how the psychologist (Paul) reacts to and is affected by the sessions as they progress week to week. One would never think that watching two people simply sit and talk for thirty minutes could be so inviting…
