Bossy’s mom made the mistake of going to the library. It’s not the library per se, but the DVDs they keep there. And oh Bossy’s gah, one library card, two cups of tea, and four DVDs later: the HBO series, In Treatment?
At first, sensing Bossy’s excitement at the description on the back of the box, Bossy’s mom was all, “Now you know this isn’t a documentary, right?” And Bossy sighed because Bossy would love nothing more than watching hour upon hour, day after day, of real people in real therapy in real time — which begs the question: Then why didn’t Bossy become an actual therapist? Maybe because there’s so much money in blogging. Heh.
But Bossy thought she’d give the series, starring Gabriel Byrne and others who are not Gabriel Byrne, a chance, even if it is a drama.
Bossy and her mom are still working their way through the first season, but sister mercy, here’s a No Spoiler summary of the events that chronicle individual therapy sessions in real time: She loves him and he loves her but he can’t admit he loves her, and the other he is falling in love with her, and they don’t love each other at all, and she doesn’t know who she loves, and she is getting married, and they are breaking up, and they are reuniting, and they are also breaking up.
There. Bossy can summarize her wee obsession with In Treatment in this way: What (No) Book Tour, and can Bossy drive and watch?
