Show combines psychiatry and football
25 January 2013 | by (St. Louis, MO) – See all my reviews

Necessary Roughness is a show about an experienced psychiatrist played by Callie Thorne(from Homicide: LOTS and Rescue Me fame) who gets hired to help out the fictional New York Hawks football team to help out with their star wide receiver Terrence "TK" King. Along the way she is also seen helping out other people with their own neurosis. The story of the show also involves the lives of Thorne's characters life especially about her kids. It's actually a quite well thought out show with a lot more depth then you'd expect from a show you'd expect about football. Also the show gives you a lot of behind the scenes perspective of what it's like to run a football team.
