    This was never a popular show from the get go, so don’t expect this to be even a minor hit.

    76 on Metacritic with 10 reviews. Looks like that will be most of them. The standouts mentioned are all over the place, but the common thread is that Uzo Aduba holds it all together and is electrifying to watch.

    Last night I was planning to watch only the first minutes to see if I liked, but I was literally glued to the screen, 54 minutes flew by. Aduba is electrifying and the writing is great. Ramos and Benjamin Hickey were surprisingly good. Can’t wait for the rest of the episodes and I’m considering watching the other seasons since I liked these 2 episodes so much.

    Uzo Aduba was absolutely superb and must-see! She’s officially in the Emmy hunt. You couldn’t take your eyes off of her, even when the dialogue became overwritten like it did in Eladio’s segment. John Benjamin Hickey was riveting in Colin’s first session. I already have a feeling that his episodes will be the most volatile and Emmy-friendly of the entire season. Looking forward to tonight’s installments!

    Did anyone spot at the end of the first episode that Brooke had an email from Paul Weston?! What does this mean?!

    Laila’s first session was all over the place and needed more focus. It felt like the writing hit a lot of Gen Z talking points/gripes, but I don’t see why Laila really needs therapy or what the end game will be with her treatment. The sessions that Gabriel Byrne had with young patients were where he really shined, and it didn’t hurt matters that Mia Wasikowska, Alison Pill, & Dane DeHaan were absolutely brilliant every time they appeared onscreen. Quintessa Swindell has a lot to live up to, and with a character not as clearly defined beyond a bunch of buzz words and such, I hope the writing doesn’t fail her and that she rises to the occasion. The talent is clearly there, and she already commands her scenes. In Brooke’s episode, they’re doing a departure from past seasons where Paul went to therapists in his sessions. Now Brooke is confiding in her AA sponsor instead (interesting since we saw Brooke take a drink at the end of Colin’s first session). Lots of character insights into Brooke’s history and current emotional state, which was nice to receive this early. I also liked how no-nonsense Liza Colón-Zayas is, b/c she’s going to be the reality check that Brooke needs when she gets too full of herself or stuck in her own way. As for Joel Kinnaman, hard pass. There’s no chemistry at all between him and Uzo Aduba, and I’m curious how much Adam will be shoehorned in Brooke’s episodes moving forward for no good reason. Judging from this first week’s content, I think the highlights moving forward will be Colin’s segments, b/c John Benjamin Hickey is stunning and the one who will challenge Uzo Aduba the most creatively. Can’t wait to see where this season goes!

    The writing is just too much.  Some of the dialogue just isn’t believable at all.
