Critic Reviews for In Treatment Season 1

All Critics (35) | Top Critics (25)

This show is a complete disaster and I am at a complete loss as to why it has had American critics so bedazzled. The dialogue is hammy and clichéd, and you can see every kink and fold of what passes for its plot coming from about eight miles away.

Oct 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Ultimately, the pain of self-discovery, at home on the couch in sync with the characters on the TV couch, is more rewarding than the vicarious thrill of Deal or No Deal.

Oct 11, 2019 | Full Review…

In Treatment is bold, provocative and presents quite a challenge to stay with all the way through.

I'm sorry, but our patience is up.

You get out what you put into it - even in the episodes that are weaker, I was rarely bored.

Jan 28, 2008 | Full Review…

This sneaky little gem steadily strips away its therapy patients' emotional defenses and excuses, exposing the raw fears and paralyzing reactions beneath.

In Treatment's superb cast and engaging writing alone are enough to recommend it.

Oct 11, 2019 | Full Review…

Thanks to some strong and subtle acting by Gabriel Byrne as the aforementioned psychoanalyst and by several of his patients, the series gets more compelling as each night passes.

Oct 11, 2019 | Full Review…

While some viewers will undoubtedly appreciate the series' subtle approach to drama, others aren't likely to find it enticing enough to stick around and see what happens next

Oct 11, 2019 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The acting is often mesmerizing in what are essentially half-hour, one-act plays that almost entirely deal with Weston and his patients in his home office. But the show is often painful and uncomfortable to watch.

Oct 11, 2019 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

A tediously claustrophobic though sometimes searing half-hour drama.

Jan 28, 2008 | Full Review…

Watching these therapy sessions is akin to eating your TV broccoli.
