Couples Therapy (2012-2015)

  • Michael McAndrew Colorado Analytic Forum


Showtime’s Couples Therapy (2019-2021) has done something very few shows have done well-showcase real therapeutic treatment on television. The advent of “prestige tv” has led to a proliferation of programs which show the therapeutic relationship in hi definition between protagonists and their therapists, such as HBO’s The Sopranos (1999-2007), and the recently revived In Treatment (2008-2010, 2021). Prior to this the “real” therapy seen on television was limited to the so-called “reality television” trend that gave us the wildly popular Intervention on A&E (2005-ongoing) and the seedier Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew (2008-2012).
