That shrink­ing feel­ing

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - NEWS -

LA SHRINKS Wed­nes­day, 9.30pm, Arena

A SHOW like this could only come from Amer­ica.

In Aus­tralia, shar­ing your feel­ings only hap­pens when you’ve had too many beers at the pub and think ev­ery­one is your best mate. But on LA Shrinks, the pa­tients are not only con­tent open­ing up to a ther­a­pist, they’re also happy to share their deep­est, most emo­tional is­sues with the en­tire world.

While it may be an awkward and un­com­fort­able prospect for those Down Un­der, it does make for bril­liant tele­vi­sion.

This week Dr Gre­gory Ca­son is try­ing to help a cou­ple with mar­i­tal is­sues but the wife in­sists on bring­ing their pets to ther­apy; Dr Eris Hue­mer is try­ing to help a Play­boy model deal with her in­se­cu­ri­ties, and Dr Venus Ni­col­ino is work­ing with a nar­cis­sist in his quest to find love. The lat­ter is the most amus­ing as Dr Ni­col­ino is de­ter­mined to show her pa­tient how he comes across to the rest of the world, even if it means in­sult­ing him.

View­ers also get an in­sight into the shrinks’ lives and is­sues. Dr Hue­mer heads to the fer­til­ity clinic to learn about her chances of fall­ing preg­nant, Dr Ni­col­ino meets with a plas­tic sur­geon about re­mov­ing her breast im­plants, and Dr Ca­son plans his wed­ding.
