My therapist makes some of the same noises Paul makes - the "hmmm" which can be comforting but also usually gets a "what?" from me. It took me years to ask that "what?" -- I was afraid to ask and thought I wasn't suppose to ask. And my therapist laughs at my smart-a$$ remarks too. He never raises his voice though.

I think it is interesting that we don't talk about the couple much and yet couple therapy is usually a large part of any therapist's caseload. I've been interested to watch Paul with couples because I know my therapist wrote his dissertation on transference with couples, and you can see Paul's coming through.

AnnieRose and I decided we don't like Paul's wife. She seems to want to get off scott-free for having an affair. Can you believe he covered for her with his kids?! But we both like Gina - she's really got Paul's number. I think it is also powerful that we see how a client can hurt their therapist and yet the therapist still hangs in with them. Clearly Paul hurts Gina's feelings. And clearly, Alex pushes Paul's buttons. Yet both remain committed to the therapy. I'm glad the writers wrote it that way.

I was on the HBO web site, there are tons of people posting about this show. I think it has really touched a nerve.
