In Treatment [DVD] [Import]
HBO's first half-hour drama gives new meaning to the term, "appointment television." Adapted from a popular and award-winning Israeli series, In Treatment in its first season aired five nights a week for nine weeks beginning in January 2008. Each episode eavesdrops on a weekly therapist-patient session. "The magic happens"—as one observer sarcastically remarks—in the home office of Paul Weston (Gabriel Byrne in his Golden Globe Award-winning role). Monday's patient is Laura (Melissa George), a doctor who reveals in a harrowing "about last night" monologue in the first episode that she is in love with Paul ("You've become the center of my life"). Tuesdays bring Alex (Blair Underwood), a cocky fighter pilot whose last mission over Iraq went horrifyingly awry, earning him the media tag, "The Madrassa Murderer." Wednesday's child, Sophie (Mia Wasikowska in a breakout performance) is a teenage Olympic hopeful in need of an evaluation following a near-fatal bicycle "accident." On Thursdays, Paul meets with Amy (Embeth Davidtz) and Jake (Josh Charles), whose rocky marriage is further shaken as they wrestle over whether or not she should get an abortion. Fearing he is "losing patience with my patients," Paul turns to his former mentor, Gina (Dianne Wiest in an Emmy-winning performance), with whom he had a falling out years before, to talk out his own troubles. The therapist whose own personal life is unraveling could have either been bad sitcom or static and stagey talking heads. But with its insightful writing, powerful performances, and deft, unobtrusive direction, In Treatment avoids the pitfalls to become an intensely gripping drama. Each episode thrives on what Laura calls "the back and forth stuff," the soul-searching and the questioning that strip away the defenses of each damaged character, including Paul himself, who has his own demons to confront as he becomes further estranged from his neglected and resentful wife, Kate (Michelle Forbes), and grapples with his feelings for Laura. This series is something of a career breakthrough for Byrne, a celebrated character actor (Miller's Crossing, The Usual Suspects). As the rumpled and weary Paul, he is more compelling just sitting and listening than many actors are in action. Quality programs for adults that deal with the human condition are at a premium on television. For anyone whose psyche has been scarred by so-called reality TV, In Treatment is excellent therapy. --Donald Liebenson
監督・脚本を担当したRodrigo Garcia（[...]）はこれまでにも傑出した群像劇を制作しているが、In Treatmentは紛れもなくその最高傑作ということができるだろう。
Actors, writers, multi award winner. Authentic depiction of how a good therapist works and the toll his work takes on him and his life. A therapist is a human being who has taken years to develop his/her skills and to learn the meaning of confidentiality and client centered orientation.
Being human, Dr. Paul Weston wrestles with his own role as a person whom troubled people come to have their problems "fixed." He must help the patient understand that he can't fix anything. They must confront their own demons and make hard decisions as he gently and wisely gives them guidance. There must be a separation — a line that must not be crossed — between therapist and patient. Paul comes close to that line and briefly crosses it with a patient. We eavesdroppers come — as a result of great acting — to feel his emotions and his struggle to put this aside and think of what his patient's need, even as his own private life faces a crisis.
My primary career was as a physicist. Concurrent with my work in physics, I earned an advanced degree in counseling psychology. I practiced counseling for 10 years.
During my training, I had a few chances to sit behind a one-way window and observe a session. From playing the role of eavesdropper (viewer) to this process, I was able to observe other therapists working with diverse patients. I found that not all therapists have the same ways of approaching their clients. This is where the therapist's own background comes into play. "In Treatment" shows how one very skilled therapist has to face his own demons to be as helpful as possible. for his patients.
I wish I could have seen "In Treatment" years ago. It provides the one-way window that I had so few during my own training. If you are interested in watching a skillfully portrayed therapist through the one-way window that this HBO series provides, go for it.
I am reviewing season 1, but have binge watched all 3 seasons and can attest to their quality
There are only a few top notch series available in reruns and this one deserves a place at the top. I highly recommend it.

I just became less interested when they went down the rabbit hole regarding the main character-intelligent psychiatrist falling head over heals in love with a long term patient, a lady known to him to be emotionally crippled, devious and sick... he then wrecks his own home life over this nonsensical fantasy. Blech! I expected more Intelligent behavior.
Tired of shows that dumb-down to cheap-thrills when the potential for so much more is right there.
Btw, am a Big fan of Gabriel Byrnes, just didn't like where this series was going.
That's the good news. The bad news is that this excellent writing and acting seem to take a progressively steeper decline as the seasons progress. 5 stars for season 1, 3-4 for season two, and 1 for season 3. I'd suggest you stop watching after the first season.
this intelligent and competent therapist turns into a real jerk who listens less and talks more as the show goes on. By season 3, You will find your self throwing things at the TV.
