The stories with the emotional experiences of the doctor’s wards, based on real stories, have created a diverse, coherent plot that is quite worthy of your attention.
This is a series about a group of people who tried to commit suicide, but are now trying to live anew. In order to help each other, they organize meetings where they share their experiences and problems.
In an incomprehensible way, such a successful and high-quality series, overflowing with interesting storylines and ironic cynical dialogues, lasted only one season. But it’s really worth enjoying.
If you have a minimum of knowledge in the field of psychology, then this series, consisting almost entirely of scenes in the therapist’s office, is for you.
Here you can really learn a lot: get to know the American concept of psychotherapy, learn how to separate work and personal problems, discover amazing features in yourself and those around you, from the series – “Ah, so this is how it works!”
The main feature of the series is the interaction between the characters. This sitcom for applied psychology fans follows divorce survivor Fraser Crane. The man moves to Seattle, where he gets a job on the radio to “heal the souls” of local listeners. Crane and his family show life as it is.
Each 22-minute episode teaches simple truths that can greatly simplify our existence: the need to work on family relationships, speak only the truth, be brave and always be who we are.
Tell me that you love me (2007)
A dramatic series about the relationship between men and women. He captivates by the fact that the creators did not exaggerate events and give out too “cinematic action”, it simply reflects real life. The way she really is, and without the influence of romantic Hollywood melodramas about a happy life. The analysis of the shown relationships gives rise to reasoning about what we really lack for ordinary happiness.
Web therapy (2011)
An incredibly successful project of everyone’s beloved Lisa Kudrow about a self-styled psychotherapist who surprised the world with a new therapy method – three-minute sessions on Skype. After all, why listen to the nonsense of patients for an hour, when you can understand everything in three minutes and send them to all four sides.
No offscreen laughter, music, jokes below the belt and other sitcom surroundings. Only the format of a reality show and a Skype dialogue between two faces with glued smiles on their faces, which further adds to the absurdity of what is happening.
