Editorial Reviews

Fiona Wallice is a therapist with no patience. Tired of fifty minute sessions, she devises a new kind of treatment, the three-minute video chat. And still, the sessions end up being largely about her.

Post-"Friends," Lisa Kudrow has made a career out of playing unlikable, narcissistic women who are oblivious to anything that doesn't directly involve them. I guess everyone needs a specialty, and no one is better at mining the humor out of an awkward situation than the fearless Kudrow. Her talent seems to be to place her character in the most uncomfortable situation possible and then leave her there, suffering and unable to extricate herself with any dignity intact. Admittedly this type of humor is not for everyone, but some will know exactly what I mean. When Kudrow appeared in the cutting HBO series "The Comeback," viewers didn't know exactly what to make of it and it didn't survive past the first season. At the time, I chose not to watch it--but last year, I gave it another try and found it a brilliantly incisive satire. So I wasn't going to miss her Showtime series "Web Therapy." Originally created with her pal Dan Bucatinsky, the idea came to life as a number of short webisodes (and has aired for four seasons in that format). The Showtime series takes the same premise, with the same central character, and expands it into a full 30 minute program.

Kudrow plays Fiona Wallice, a psychotherapist experimenting with a new form of treatment. Instead of 50 minute traditional encounters, she's boiled down her sessions to three minute exchanges via the Internet. That way, she figures, they can cut out all the extraneous nonsense and quickly get to the heart of the matter. As expected, Kudrow is both dismissive and self-involved when dealing with both her patients and her loved ones. Each of the ten episodes within Season One has 3-4 computer interactions (few of the actors share actual scenes together in person).

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this Show!! September 21, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is one of the funniest shows out there. Lisa Kudrow shows her immense ability to play a character different from but in some ways like Phoebe. I love that the show is not scripted. It makes for some very funny interactions with the characters. Lily Tomlin as her mother is a riot!

4.0 out of 5 stars I agree with Hit or Miss designation June 18, 2012
Format:DVD
Another Amazon reviewer has really nailed this show by designating it as hit or miss. This is a scathing satire and Kudrow either really nails it or not. She hits more than she misses though and comedy is a tough gig so on balance, it is worth a viewer's time. She plays a web therapist, someone who is going to have a short internet web therapy experience with a patient and cure their problem with this short, intensive approach. She is meant to be unqualified right from the very first episode when we are given her very iffy qualifications as a therapist.

Part of the hit and miss nature comes from the fact she uses guest stars. If the guest star is great, she is great. So when Jane Lynch from GLEE, for example, guests, it is a great episode. There are episodes involving her mother, Lily Tomlin, which are also first rate.

I think this is worth a viewer's time to at least try it out.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hilarious February 3, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I knew Lisa Kudrow could be funny. I just didn't know she could be THIS funny. This particular show just struck a chord with me, and I laughed out loud through every episode. It WAS therapy--in the truest sense. The humor is very dry. If you enjoy slapstick or silliness, you won't like it at all. But if you enjoy the humor that emerges from everyday life gone wrong (sometimes horribly wrong), this is just your kind of show. What's particularly remarkable is that most of it takes place in a cubicle--Lisa's online office. Now that takes some genius. Think Seinfeld or Larry David, but a little edgier. Truth be told, Lisa Kudrow can say more with her facial expressions alone than most so-called comics can say in a 10-minute routine. The guest stars are wonderful, too--Lily Tomlin (how she kept a straight face I'll never know) and Julia Louis Dreyfus stand out in my mind. Sheer unadulterated fun that for a short, blessed while, takes your mind off demonically depressing politics--and just about everything else. This is a refreshing departure from the usual let's-put-everyone-down kind of comedy that seems to have overtaken prime time television AND late-night shows. Makes a terrific gift for someone who could use a genuinely hearty laugh (yourself, perhaps). Unlike most sit-coms, this one is actually funny.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good background for Series 2 November 13, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Season 2 is much funnier, but I'm glad I viewed Series 1 for background, which gave me a little more insight into Series 2. Web therapy is very funny, with excellent plots and twists and turns. The actors and the acting are phenomenal. Lisa Kudrow plays a narcissistic character who puts on a brave face for the world, but her vulnerability shines through, adding to the complexity of her character.

With all the crap on TV today, I was so happy to find this series, with excellent writers, actors, plots, and the wonderful characters portrayed.

This series is not for people who watch reality TV. This show is for people who like to watch actors being allowed to be the artists they truly are.

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring and Not Funny
A little Kudrow goes a long way as it did in "Friends"...except in Friends, she was toned down by the other ones and that made the whole show funny and good. Read more
