Review by Suzanne 1/2/05
Hank Azaria stars in this Showtime series about a psychiatrist and the trials
he goes through. The first show began with one of his patients, a gay
teen, shooting himself in Huff's office. Huff also has a schizophrenic
brother in a mental hospital, a pushy mother, a father whom he hardly ever sees,
and a best friend who is a self-destructive lawyer. Huff's wife and son
are interesting but seemingly normal; there are other odd characters, such as
his patients or people he runs into.
Despite the heavy-sounding melodrama, the show is often quite funny.
Azaria, probably best known for the sitcom "Mad About You" and his voice work on
"The Simpsons", does a superb job as the often-bewildered or just plain
pissed-off Huff. Blythe Danner shines as his mother, and Oliver Platt has
been great as his lawyer friend. All of the actors do a great job.The
writing is very good; occasionally the show gets a little maudlin, but not too
often. I have really been enjoying it. I can hardly wait until it comes
out on DVD. I hope this one lasts longer than "Dead Like Me".
