Paul Weston (the talented Gabriel Byrne) is a therapist. In the course of a series you see Paul attend to a handful of patients out of his private home practice. Each episode is a session, each patient has 8-10 sessions. The incredible genius of this show is the single focus of each episode.
This is not a fast paced show and is not for people who like/need to have their ideas challenged or need to see a lot of action, scene changes and fast paced conversation.
This is a show for people who are interested in the process of therapy, either for their misgivings on the topic, to understand what the process is, or to see the intricacies of how different personalities handle situations.
