I saw this a while back and didn't enjoy it. Maybe I'd understand more of it if I was Jewish or knew more about the Jewish faith? I didn't like the ending at all.

The trailer looks great! Still, I'll probably skip this one, already enough to watch and not enough time. But weird that I also never heard of it before. :)

P.S.: I added the show page link and also replaced the image URL with our internal show page image URL (in case the external page goes offline in the future).

A psychotherapist who recently lost his wife, finds himself held prisoner by a serial killer with an unusual request to curb his homicidal urges.


A thrilling show with Steve Carell in a serious role.
Stumbled over this on Disney+/FX, never heard of it before, but was positive surprised and binged several episodes at a time and finished it now. Some episodes were stronger than others but i think this therapy session was very much worth a watch.
