TV Tonight: In Treatment

If the writers' strike has left a void where your TiVo queue used to be, In Treatment is coming along to fill it up. Starting tonight, the HBO series kicks off its rather intense schedule, airing for a half-hour a night, five nights a week.

Gabriel Byrne stars as psychotherapist Paul Weston, and each half-hour installment focuses on a session with a different patient.

I thought Blair Underwood was great last night. He's got a great storyline.

Anyone have comments about last night's show? Looked like Paul was liking her bathroom story a little too much! I'm very curious to see what he says at his therapist on Friday about Laura

Thanks for mentioning On Demand, mannylove! This will solve the time commitment problem for sure. Now I'm really looking forward to watching.

I think it looks interesting and I will check it out. I'm happy for On Demand though, so I can watch the whole week's all at once, or when i have time instead of every night!!

i'm actually looking forward to this show - i saw the commercials for it and it looks kind of good - very different than the other shows that are out there now and we really need the variety
