moving away from the three Classical unities - time, 24 hours, in this case 25 minutes, the limits of a professional appointment, location, same place, the doctor's office, and action, the investigation of a patient's particular dilemma - makes this taut and compelling series too much like any other old program on television this second season, though the patients, still, each and every one of them, is consummate, again, always consuming, worth ever the price of admission - but the lead overacts this time, to the point of distraction in the second season, though not enough to entirely pass on a really good show, intelligent programming for the discriminating viewer, and a great platform for terrific acting - did I say that Dianne Wiest is extraordinary, remains extraordinary, inspirational even

Excellent series! Very believable characters and situations. I found myself really angry with Paul on many occasions, just wanted to shake him, haha. And the anger that Gina felt was palpable, I found myself angry & upset on her behalf a couple of times.
All 3 seasons of this show are definitely one of the best shows I've seen in a very long time. I highly recommend it!

It is more of the same as in Season 1. Well scripted, and well acted. You have to be patient enough to finish watching each story around an individual, while being informed of the development of Paul's own problems.

Season two is very similar to season one but with a new cast of patients. It's hard to develop sympathy with the patients at first. However, one must watch each patient's entire therapy treatment to see their insights and improvements. Paul's personal life is also in crisis and he uses his therapist and mentor as his sounding board. There are intense emotions, so be prepared for a rollercoaster ride.

Excellent Season! Gabriel Byrne, Hope Davis, Dianne Wiest, and Aaron Shaw were particular favorites for me. They're performances were pitch perfect. Particularly, "Paul" and "Oliver's" sessions were heartbreaking. I caught myself tearing up with their performances. Their last session together was incredible. Bring the Kleenex!!

I love this program. The acting, the intensity, the writing... I feel like I've gone to the gym, but for an emotional rather than physical workout. I've never been "In Treatment", but I feel that I have learned a fair amount, some of which I could actually use in my own life.

This is one of the best HBO small cast dramas you'll ever see. Gabriel Byrne has a simmering intensity. And that Voice! You can hear that Scotsman brouge just under his lines voice. It's a pleasure to see Dianne Weist acting again. She's a two time emmy winner with style and grace and also a pleasure to watch. No spoilers here. Just give it a chance, and it will grow on you, and you'll get a bit of free therapy out of the deal. I'm waiting on season two. Alas, Dianne does not return for season three, which is what's airing on HBO now. Great editing, awsome acting. One of the very few one or two person ensemble on cable. Metal or not; Get yourself In Treatment!!
