The show started off a little rough, but now entering it's 3rd week, the show is growing some feet. I think the real treat of the show so far is reaching the end of the week when Paul (played by Gabriel Byrne) meets with his own shrink Gina (played by the wonderful Dianne Wiest) on Fridays.
Melissa George (Laura on Mondays) is another treat. There is this awesome sexual tension between her and Paul.
Blair Underwood (Alex on Tuesdays) is still rough yet. He's a cocky arrogant fighter pilot who thinks he knows more than he really knows...slowing his character will understand himself.
Mia Wasikowska (Sophie on Wednesdays) is young and quite immature yet still has a good read on herself (a little like Natalie Portman in "Beautiful Girls"). I can't tell if I like her character yet, as its still early.
Jake & Amy (on Thursdays) are married couple who trying to get pregnant and then finally did. I don't want to give too much away, but its almost as if they are aggressively using each other against each other.
So far, I enjoy the show's premise, the writing, the character development. I hope HBO gives it time to gain and grow an audience.
