Critic Reviews for Couples Therapy Season 1

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (2)

Sometimes you are tempted to laugh at the show's participants, as in the above example, but then you realize that these are just normal people exposing their most intimate thoughts.

Couples Therapy also delivers on a fantasy familiar to anyone who's been in therapy of any kind, joint or solo, following Guralnik out of her own workplace and into that of her clinical adviser, Dr. Virginia Goldner.

Guralnik is a picture of cool, even when a patient is staring her down and doubting her magnanimousness. If she's not magnanimous, she's at least remarkably wise, routinely saying things that viewers may find useful

The reveals are somewhat slow, something anyone who's been through therapy themselves will not find surprising - but the breakthroughs are illuminating.

Couples Therapy is so real and raw, you can't help but watch.

Couples Therapy breaks new ground with its camera, capturing the stalemates and breakthroughs in shifting gazes, unsaid interjections, raised eyebrows.

And, yes, while a show like this smacks of voyeurism, its view into the therapy processes of couples in counseling with Dr. Orna Guralnik over six months is instructive as opposed to exploitative.

Audience Reviews for Couples Therapy: Season 1

    Well written and well acted. I was blown away when one character asked another to name her favorite band's worst album. Pause. I thought of my favorite act, Bonnie Raitt's last Warner Brother's LP, "Nine Lives'", which really sucked in about 1980. Then on the show, came the answer: Bonnie Raitt's most recent album, 2017's "dig in deep", which I have to admit is not one of my favorites, still, I don't think whoever selected this has ever listened to "Nine lives". It was strange that they nailed the artist, though. Kudos . I enjoy the show.

    Imagine making a documentary with a SJW written script.

    Just like when I watch HGTV I become convinced I can remodel my entire house, I was hooked and convinced I could fix or end all these couples within 10 mins of the first episode. This show is amazing. It's watching people in their most private, vulnerable moments and it's gut wrenching. And spellbinding. And the therapist is amazing. I want her to counsel me!
