5.0 out of 5 stars Compelling, 23 Jun. 2013
This review is from: In Treatment - Complete HBO Season 3 [DVD] [2012] (DVD)
The formula remains the same - the sessions of three patients plus Paul's sessions with his own therapist - and none the worse for that.
This season sees Paul still in his New York apartment struggling to cope with life on his own and is finding the introduction of a step-father in his children's life hard to deal with. Paul is worried that he has inherited Parkinsons from his own father.
I did not find the patients quite as interesting as those in previous seasons with the exception of Sunil (Irrfan Khan), reluctantly living with his son's family. A recent immigrant to the States, he finds his American daughter-in-law incomprehensible and feels the marriage is a mistake. A person who had respect in his home town, now he feels marginalised and trapped and he is angry about it. This anger is mainly directed at his daughter-in-law, Julia(Sonya Walger), who he sees as controlling and domineering.
Anyone familiar with the previous two series will know what to expect. Even with those characters you do not particularly like, watching Paul patiently peel back the layers to help them with their different issues, seeing them see or not see their way forward, is an engrossing process.
There are rumours that a fourth season is under consideration provided the workload on Gabriel Byrne as the central character can be lightened. Fingers crossed!
