    I personally believe that In Treatment is one of the more underrated TV shows in recent memory. Even though it was a small show, it got several Emmy nominations and two acting wins. However, it never got other major love from outside of the actors’ branch. Do you think that it deserved more nominations and/or wins than it received?

    It should’ve won drama series for the first season, and some actor went unnoticed such as Alison Pill and Dane Dehaan.

    The third season is my favorite, remarkable writing, the Byrne-Ryan-Winger acting triangle was terrific. I think it was the only season they went without the original script, from the israeli tv series, right? But i guess their big chance at the Emmys was with the first one.

    Having said that, Gabriel Byrne should have stayed with a tent outside the Academy, protesting for not getting an Emmy

    You’re right on the original script thing. The series the show was based on, BeTipul, only lasted two seasons. The writers already based the first two seasons on the Isreali show, so therefore they were forced to write original scripts for season three. Also, the first season has always been my favorite. The Alex/Laura/Paul love triangle storyline was so money.

    It made my top five/six a couple times. Unique show. Sometimes great. Frequently mawkish tonally and cutesy with its plotting. I would hve given it a few more nods throughout the years. But better shows got worse treatment (see what I did there?) by the Emmys during its run.

    This show was incredible, and all three seasons were excellent. I loved in season one how a new episode aired every night (Monday through Friday). The Byrne/Wiest combo was excellent for two seasons, with every single patient being engaging. I particularly loved Laura, Mia, April and Jesse (though that’s not to say the others weren’t as good…everyone was great).

    Amy Ryan was also an amazing addition.

    I do, in particular, remember a speech by April where she told Paul about how she yelled at construction worker on the street. It was very moving, and has still stayed in my memory over the years.

    “In Treatment” must have been an actor’s dream.

    I loved “In Treatment.” It should have been nominated for Drama Series, Writing, & Directing. Gabriel Byrne should have won Lead Actor at least once. Blair Underwood, Alison Pill (OMG!), Dane DeHaan, and Mia Wasikoswka should have all been nominated in their respective seasons. They all had tapes to win Emmys. It was good to see Glynn Turman and Dianne Wiest rewarded (even if in the latter’s case, won with a weak submission and lost for a greater submission). The level of acting talent here was an embarrassment of riches. Josh Charles, Embeth Davidtz, Michelle Forbes, Amy Ryan, Irrfan Khan, Debra Winger, Melissa George, John Mahoney, Hope Davis, etc. I miss the show dearly. Even though the ending was fine, I’d love to see HBO return this to the schedule in practically any form just to revisit these characters again.

    I liked it. It wasn’t amazing or super consistent, and each season was a bit of a step down from the last. My favourite performances were Gabriel Byrne, Dianne Wiest, Mia Wasikowska, Blair Underwood, Glynn Turman, John Mahoney, Alison Pill, and Irrfan Khan.

    Irrfan Khan not being nominated is beyond me. What a crime .

    At the very least, it deserved some writing noms and a few series bids.

    I loved this show. It should’ve gotten nominated for Drama Series a couple times, some Writing and Directing nods. Also, damn near every actor on that show should’ve been nominated, such as Melissa George, Blair Underwood (whose Drama Supporting Actor snub is one of the biggest Emmy snubs in the past 15 years, IMO), Debra Winger, Embeth Davidtz, Dane DeHaan, Allison Pill, Irrfan Khan and Mia Wasikowska. Last but certainly not least, Gabriel Bryne should’ve won at least once for the show. It’s great, though, that Glynn Furman and Dianne Wiest were recognized for their work on the show.

    This was a pretty underrated series. And apart from its source material, there’s really nothing else like it. No, it wasn’t always great, but it was always interesting. It should have been nominated all over the place.
