    Meh. Look, I love Lisa Kudrow, and I know the entire show is improvised, but some of the scenes are too long and stale, and can be cringeworthy at times. I applaud the attempt and I know it's improvised, but shows like Curb are improvised too, and they are able to deliver an actual punchline whereas Therapy doesn't. Not my cup of tea.

    The fine cast, both regulars and guest stars, elevates the proceedings considerably.

    Ambiently amusing but generally inert, the show is badly in need of a hard-edged producer to tell the series' creators that they cannot get by on charm, no matter how much of that precious quality is imported by such guest stars as Lily Tomlin, Rashida Jones, and Bob Balaban.

    It's not just that Kudrow has failed to find a vehicle for her comedic talents since Friends; it's that the two-dimensional, often insufferable characters she's created are largely to blame for the failure of those projects in the first place.
