WIN, 9.40pm

The Northern Star - - TV -

Grab a towel. Tonight, the Pear­son fam­ily sit down for a ther­apy ses­sion. In what must be one of the most in­tense hours of TV ever pro­duced, a box of tis­sues sim­ply isn’t go­ing to cut it. A hardy, big towel should do the trick. Be­fore you run away, in­ti­mated and scared by the prospect of yet more tear-stained emo­tional up­heaval, rest as­sured that, like any good ther­apy, “The Fifth Wheel” is a cathar­tic and heal­ing af­fair – even if it fea­tures some of the most un­com­fort­able mo­ments on TV. With­out giv­ing any­thing away about the poignant and af­fect­ing scenes, Kevin (a scene-steal­ing Ster­ling K. Brown) is able to ad­dress his feel­ings of in­ad­e­quacy.
