Necessary Roughness established itself as a heartfelt drama of a recently divorced psychotherapist who goes to work for a New York football team. As well as treating the team and all the dramas attendent to sports as big business, Necessary Roughness had a patient of the week format that made it accessible to new viewers. Terrence King, the good-hearted bad boy wide receiver is shot in the season finale and season two opens not only with the fall-out from the shooting, but with hints from other long-term storylines related to the team. The mysterious family that owns the Hawks will be more in evidence this season it seems as will the enigmatic head of security.

I was surprised to find that I liked Necessary Roughness as much as I did as I am indifferent to football. But NR isn't about football, it is about people and the therapist who knows them and sometimes treats them. The performances are solid and convincing without being melodramatic and the writing is believable - realism that isn't boring or forced. I'm especially excited that some secondary characters are going to get more story-time this season and will be watching this drama develop.

This series gets a bit beyond lackluster stereotypes except for the therapy part where platitudes seem to be the cure for every ill. Dani is an o.k. therapist, I guess, but most deluded when it comes to her own relationships. Matt is a trip down memory lane hoping and praying for a do-over of her past. Nico represents the future and, I wish, a much better prospect for a mature and grown-up Dani looking ahead. These two very different men are the subtext to the overall theme of a therapist with high-powered clients who play games for a living. Dani, though diminutive in size, can stand up to the toughest client both emotionally and physically. There is enough of a story line where another season would be appreciated. However, the "getting real" is as much of an issue for the writers of this series as it is for their characters, Dani especially.

This is a great show. Season Two, more then the other two seasons, touches on some serious subject matters but is also funny, sad, dramatic, interesting, romantic, heroic, & just an interesting show all around. I would recommend watching the whole show. The seasons are short. Season 2 has 16 episodes (the most out of all three seasons) but every season incorporates not just football but many other types of sports into the story-lines. Characters who skateboard, bull-ride, play baseball or tennis & many others are seamlessly added. It's a good show if you are looking for something different.

Dani continues to have different team members in her Psych chair-and also is being sent clients from outside their circle. Dani is extremely good at her job. Meanwhile she is oñ again off again with the general manager, she is fascinated by the teams fix-it man; they have a lot of sexual attraction. And she has lots of sessions with King-the quarterback. So much happening.....

I am a self-described USA Network addict, and I keep tuning in to all their shows out of habit. Of the ones currently on the air, there’s only one I don’t love, and that’s Necessary Roughness. It’s not that I hate it, it’s just that I don’t find it nearly as engaging as the others. While I continued watching season two, it felt like a step down from season one.

The show centers around therapist Dani Santino (Callie Thorne) who has become the go to person for the rich and famous after she started working with the New York Hawks football team. Some of her clients this season include a husband and wife professional tennis duo and aging rock stars coming out of retirement.

Of course, much of her time seems to be taken up with the Hawks where she is dating Matt (Marc Blucas), one of the coaches. She also has to deal with Terrance “TK” King (Mehcad Brooks), the wide receiver, who is returning for the new season after being shot. Will this help or further his self-destructive tendencies? The team’s owner, Marshall Pitman (guest star Evan Handler) wants to be more hands on this season, and is causing all kinds of problems in the process.

As if all that weren’t enough, Dani also has to deal with her two teenage kids all by herself since she has recently divorced from her husband.

Obviously, there is a lot going on in the episodes. I would say they are fairly evenly split between client of the week type episodes with stuff with the Hawks taking a sub-plot status and episodes where the Hawks are front and center in the story. The client of the week episodes are the weakest because they are very formulaic. That was a complaint in the first season, and the writers haven’t changed it here.

Even if you are not a sports fan (my spouse is not) you will enjoy this series. Thorne is charming and feisty, and now that the emphasis is off her whiny/uninteresting children and back on her interactions with athletes and sports management, the series has really picked up.

I've enjoyed this series from the first season. Excellently put together cast of interesting characters. Haven't seen anything of this type of story in past years and the way the story unfolds allows for many many types of situations to be included.
Hopefully, they can continue and have a long TV run.
