Pick of the Day

In Treatment, 9.00pm, Sky Atlantic

Streaming on NOW TV

The original US version was an engrossing slice of telly, with Gabriel Byrne outstanding as psychotherapist Paul Weston, and his weekly sessions with patients.

If this reboot is even half as good, it’ll be well worth watching.

Ten years after the third season finale, the Emmy-winning drama returns for its fourth season with Uzo Aduba (Crazy Eyes in Orange Is The New Black) as the observant, empathetic Dr Brooke Taylor, the new therapist at the centre of the show.

Set in present-day Los Angeles, the new run of the series sees a diverse trio of patients in session with Brooke to help navigate a variety of modern concerns.

Issues such as the global pandemic and recent major social and cultural shifts are a backdrop to the work Brooke will undertake - all while she deals with complications in her own personal life.

In the opening episodes, a troubling dream finds home health aide Eladio reaching out in the middle of the night, forcing Brooke to reestablishes boundaries as his therapist.

Later, when Eladio requests medication, Brooke switches her focus to his history of insomnia.

Then we turn our attention to Colin, a self-proclaimed therapy enthusiast and proud child of hippies.

He arrives for the first of four court-mandated sessions, but his evasiveness makes a recommendation regarding his recent release from prison difficult for Brooke.
