I love this show! The acting and the scripts are solid and intriguing. My favorite patient is Sophie. Mia Wasichowska plays her perfectly.

I'm always riveted to the screen when it's on. Anyone else watching?

I was thinking about starting the same thread.

I haven't watched the entire thing, just bits and pieces. I've seen most of Laura, and most of Gina, which is probably my favorite to watch. I love the show as well. It is indeed solid and intriguing.

I haven't seen any of Sophie, but when I have the time, I'll go back and watch it from Week 1.

It's funny how the show keeps shifting your opinions of each of the characters..or maybe that's just me.. One minute I'm totally on Paul's side..and then his wife says something and it's 'Paul you a-hole.'..I can't stand his wife though!

What I didn't care for though was the episode with his son. The son wasn't really convincing as his own son..more like a nephew or something.

VeryNY--definitely go back and watch Sophie. Blair Underwood as Alex the navy pilot is great too.

I think that your opinions of the characters change because they are so well written with the depth and breath that humans have, so naturally we see their many sides.

I am the least interested in watching Jake and Amy, although I like Embeth Davidts.
I just can't picture them as a legitimate couple. But I guess opposites attract.

I also did not like the casting of the actor who played Paul's son. Gabriel Byrne and he were not believable as father and son.

Only caught some of Laura....I was happy to see Melissa George in another show and that she wasn't playing an evil b**** like she did on Alias. I thought she was pretty good.

Yeah why are there so many! The duration of all the episodes so far combined is probably more than one entire season of a typical show.

and Paul is in all of them!

Did anyone catch the last three episodes? The last Sophie episode was one of the most emotional episodes of In Treatment I ever saw.
