First Look at HBO's In Treatment with Gabriel Byrne

First Look: In Treatment

When I first heard about HBO's In Treatment, which premieres later this month, I thought it sounded like it could be a little too intense. The show will air one half-hour episode each weekday for nine weeks — a total of 45 episodes. But now with the writers' strike in full effect, I'm actually excited about so much Treatment; after all, what else am I going to be watching?

The show follows a therapist named Paul, played by Gabriel Byrne, through a week of clients — one on Mondays, one on Tuesdays, and so on. Paul's own therapy session airs on Fridays. It's such an inventive and unusual concept, and yet, I'm still afraid it's too much for anyone to handle. But after watching HBO's brief preview, I'm already curious to see more from each of Paul's clients, and I like the choice to put Paul's own sessions in the mix. Plus, Gabriel Byrne is the rare actor I could actually watch for 20-plus hours, and that's one of the big keys to making the show work.

Buzz -- will HBO be airing this on demand as well? That's how I can usually catch up with my HBO series (like Tell Me You Love Me). :) If so, then I'll definitely try to catch this. And have you heard anything about a 2nd season of Tell Me You Love Me?? That became one of my addictions this fall!
