Description

Dr. Black's home base is in New York City where she works as the medical director of a state-of-the-art neurological center known as "The Cube." Inside its modern walls, this complex woman draws patients from all over the world. Outside, she keeps multiple secrets from her family and loved ones. There's only one person who knows everything -- her psychiatrist, Dr. Helen Hartramph (Vanessa Redgrave). Hartramph is intuitive, deeply insightful, and strong, an imposing mentor and mother figure. She's a touchstone that Catherine returns to weekly for advice, medication and comfort. Meanwhile, Catherine keeps the men in her life on their toes as she is torn between Will (David Ajala), a sexy, handsome new chef with his own restaurant in Brooklyn, and her co-worker, the charismatic, womanizing chief of neurosurgery, Dr. Ian Bickman (Ditch Davey). Will wants love and commitment, but can a free spirit like Catherine ever commit? Bickman's work comes first and he would never contemplate settling down, at least until he meets Dr. Catherine Black. But what does Bickman really know about Catherine? Less than he imagines.

Customer Reviews

I like the show but..

I like this show so far, but I am also bipolar, and let me tell you, you do not become insanely manic and out of control within minutes of not taking your medication. That is just a little too ridiculous. I know people have different experiences with bipolar disorder but this show just seems a little too far out. Shows like Homeland and even that show Mind Games with Steve Zahn do a much better job portraying bipolar disorder. I've never once danced (like no one was watching) to jazz music out of nowhere when I was manic. I'm just saying.. But otherwise, the premise and what not of the show are pretty good. And yes Mania does make you do things you wouldn't normally do and can make you hypersexual and spend money you can not afford to lose, and just basically lose control of your life, but this show takes it to an whole other extreme like I've never seen.. Still a pretty decent show though..

Too farfetched

The behavior of the doctor is silly - she's too out of control to be reliable dealing with patients and her "heartfelt" responses to her patients seem random and completely unprofessional. The back story is overly dramatic too -- after years of being in the same family, it's as unresolved as if it all happened yesterday. She doesn't bring much to the any relationship she has but drama.

Fun little fantasy.

I have been dealing with the mentally ill in a peripheral and sometimes very personal way for most of my life. This show is an amusing take on the subject, well written and very well acted. To be frank there are an awful lot of reviewers of this show who say it is unrealistic and it is. However I don't think I would enjoy watching a show that was 100% authentic. It would simply be too alternately boring and heartbreaking.
