    Everyone has to bring their A-game and, for the most part, they do.

    Byrne is brilliant and--for the most part--so is this fine and absorbing show.
  3. It is, to put it bluntly, a cast to die for. Each story line is well-drawn and compelling and each subtly represents a thread of Paul's own issues that come together in Gina's office even more effectively, if a bit more sentimentally, than they did last season.
  4. Its vivid, cliché-free writing has always been In Treatment's singular strength. That's even truer in its riveting new season--no small accomplishment.

    This season as much as last, In Treatment brings us into more intimacy with its characters than almost any other series on TV.

    The acting on this show is so incredible that it's hard to remember that there's any acting going on at all.

    Though relying heavily on a formula, the writing of In Treatment could not be tighter or purer.

    It’s difficult not to follow Weston and his new array of patients this season, especially when the compelling Byrne shares the screen with seasoned actors such as John Mahoney, who plays Walter, an arrogant CEO suffering from insomnia, and Hope Davis, who plays Mia, a brittle Manhattan attorney who blames Weston, who treated her when she was in her 20s, for the problems that plague her two decades later.

    Season two was just as good and interesting as the first one and that in on itself is a big achievement. Season 1 was impressive and being able to repeat that just shows how good the writers of this series are and how great Gabriel and his patients perform. Full Review »
