Highly Entertaining!
7 July 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There's not a lot of great television these days. It feels like everything is "reality" TV, getting worse and worse, and farther from reality.

It's nice to finally see a show being creative AND entertaining. Another reviewer mentioned that the concept of couples therapy isn't realistic in this environment and it would never happen in real life. Welcome to television! Nothing on it is real, that's why it's entertaining. It's called the "suspension of disbelief." I learned that from Howard Stern. Anyway. The only thing that SHOULD be real on TV is the News, and hopefully, one day it will be real again.

The couples therapy is a funny take on the action/dramedy dynamic seen in Analyze This!, The Sopranos, etc... The "couples" aspect of it is a nice twist, and the characters/actors play off of each other very well. The show started off well and has gotten even better as the episodes develop. I'm looking forward to seeing more episodes as this show continues.
