Good advice and help out show. Such a joy to watch the sexy and mature brash Callie Thorne!
13 July 2011 | by (Petersburg, Virginia) – See all my reviews

Over the years it's been a pleasure to see on many cable series and the FX's "Rescue Me" the work of Callie Thorne, I've saw her in many sexy scenes. Yet her work and clever look always produce blunt and brash outspoken performances she's a fine actress. So I was so glad when the USA Network decided to give her a series of her own, and "Necessary Roughness" fits her perfect, as Callie shows she has some range as an actress.

Set in Long Island, New York Thorne is Dr. Dani Santino who as an upscale and elegant attractive psychotherapist mother of two finds herself in the dumps when she discovers her husband has cheated on her. Yet for every negative a positive will come, it seemed like a dream for Dani when she gets the call for pro football's New York Hawks(a fictional one)to be a therapist and shrink for the team. And her most famous client is troubled star wide receiver Terrence King(Mehcad Brooks)and this cat gives Dani plenty of headaches and mental pain as talent is no break from being a head case! Aside from that dealing with the growing pains of her teenage kids is enough as she has to monitor many of their moves.

Still the doc has a little side pleasure in the form of some one night stands with team trainer the hunky Matthew(Marc Blucas). As anyone would agree and see why that Matthew has a thing for Dani she's one hot sexy doc! And her professional work is well respected as it leads her to counsel and analyze many other type of clients from entertainers, celebrities, and other sports and media figures and even politicians as everyone needs a shrink! Overall this is one good series that proves with a little advice and direction fear and many other problems can be faced and overcome in a permanent manner. And Callie Thorne is a delight she's a tough as nails and very sexy cougar who cares about people problems in this series. So do yourself a favor and take the field and get ready for the game of life that's just "Necessary Roughness".
