  1. This is challenging fare, but the smart storytelling and realistic portrayal of professional relationships is unique and worth checking out.
  2. State of Mind owes most of its appeal to Ms. Taylor, an accomplished indie actress with unusual jolie-laide looks who brings a wry charm and dignity to the inauspicious role of a wronged wife who is also burdened with an overbearing mother.
  3. 80
    One of the primary attractions of the drama looks to be the fantasy it offers of office mates becoming a community of friends who are continually dropping in on each other to offer companionship and support.
  4. State of Mind is filled with grand, unearned speeches. But they are so nicely written - about the camaraderie of a good marriage or the bitterness of a bad one - it's difficult to begrudge them.
  5. 63
    Taylor, whose performance overflows with touchingly wounded dignity. She also gets to deliver a great speech to two of her patients, which, while totally unrealistic, is fun in an overly theatrical kind of way.
  6. State of Mind is the weaker (and the more strenuous and sour) of the two [new shows on Lifetime], and all the more disappointing for the presence of the reliably interesting Taylor.
  7. 30
    This show could've worked.

    I loved it. As a soon-to-be 50 year old who has been through marital counseling and separation, I loved the honesty and close-to-home joking I loved it.
