Shrink (Seeso) – Premieres 16th March
After completing his medical degree, David Tracy ends up being rejected by every residency programme he applied for. Leaving him without a job and a $500k student loan, that’s co-signed by his mother, about to activate.
To keep his medical license and to get a profession that can start paying the loan back before it bankrupts his family, David decides on becoming a licensed therapist. Where he begins to perform the 1920 hours of supervised therapy, for free, in his garage.
After taking in his first few patients he manages to persuade his former therapist to become his supervisor, and ends up finding out that most of the stuff he’s done contravenes the correct protocol, and the techniques he’s told to perform occasionally go awry.
As a comedy it’s a pretty laid back affair and has some decent moments in it. It’s worth a look.
