TV Review - Go On
The comedy comes from the fact that each member of the therapy group has some kind of quirk. The rest of the comedy comes from Ryan not believing in therapy and taking every opportunity to take the sessions from Lauren, played by Laura Benanti, and lead them himself. It was annoying when he did it in the first episode. It continued to be annoying in the second.
Supposedly, Ryan is a man in mourning, but his actions don't reflect that in the slightest. The death of his wife is meant to justify his behavior, no matter how obnoxious like when he stalks and grows semi-co-dependent of his assistant, Carrie, played by Allison Miller. I think the makers of this show want Ryan to become endearing, but the deficit that's created in these first two episodes will require them to do a lot of work.
One Star out of Five.
