"Therapist" Dr. Tom - who is constantly spouting famous and not so famous historical quotes - is Erica Strange's savior and worst enemy. Erica, a young adult woman, is having a bad life because of the bad decisions she's made. Erica provides Dr. Tom with a long list of those pivotal moments in her life that she feels have led to the bad state she is in today. Erica is initially unaware of what Dr. Tom is intending on doing with this list. What he does do is transport her back in time to each of those moments so that she, with all the knowledge of her present day life, can make better decisions to fix her life. Regardless of these new decisions, Dr. Tom hopes that Erica will come to the realization that although the opinions of others about her life do matter, it's what she thinks of her decisions and her life that are more important.

A brilliant at times and eminently watchable show at worst that airs in the U.S. on the SoapNet Channel, this is about the trials & tribulations of Erica Strange. She goes back in each episode to a time in which she wished she had done differently, it not better, aided by her therapist, Dr. Tom. What makes this work is the solid acting by everyone, especially the title character, the message that it is not too late to change things, and the fact that although it is a drama it has some light comedic elements at times. I don't want to even go into specific episodes but suffice to say that it is life affirming, if sometimes very touching. A big plus is that it is set in Toronto, showcasing the city just wonderfully. Some may dismiss this as a woman's show, but it is for everyone. Very highly recommended, look for it.
