User Reviews

Brilliant Plot Line, Great Acting
7 May 2014 | by percymoeSee all my reviews

The plot focuses upon mental illness in the best of ways: by having a physician herself expressing Bi-Polar Disorder behaviors. This strongly suggests that mental illness can impact anyone.

With Vanessa Redgrave acting as the psychiatrist of main character, Dr, Black, we can't top her performances! Redgrave's great in this role and should keep the series very interesting and informative.

I like the fact that we're getting a variety of perspectives of how family, co-workers, lovers and friends treat people who they know have serious-enough bouts with manias, most especially.

If I were to change one aspect, it would be to have more of Vanessa Redgrave providing "the talking cure" (psychoanalysis) to Dr. Black, especially while she's on a mania high.
