Great, unremarkable, and then just sad...
on April 23, 2017
This show was compelling, I truly couldn't stop watching it. At first. Season One was amazing! The relationships with his patients were thought provoking and tumultuous, his own therapy sessions with Gina really give you a glimpse into how tortured he is about his profession, his marriage, and his ethics. I lost many hours of sleep because I wanted to see what would happen next.
Season Two was much slower to start, and the characters didn't have as much personality as the previous season. When I finally did start to care what happened to them, when it finally got interesting, it was over.
Season Three is perhaps the most disappointing. I had hoped Season Two was a fluke and they'd recapture the magic the show had before, but it just declined even further. Sunil is perhaps the only character with any grit to him, the rest are just vapid filler with nothing to say. We see more of Paul's personal life than before, which is something I wish I'd seen more of in Season One, but his decline into nut-town just wasn't as interesting as you'd think.
It's definitely worth watching, but if you don't make it past Season Two, you're not missing much.
