In Treatment thrives on its multiple personalities: The therapy drama is an acting/directing exercise, but isn’t stagy. It’s not claustrophobic, though it’s set largely in one room. And it’s the rare show that’s actually better on DVD. Treatment follows a different patient each weeknight (Tuesdays, with Blair Underwood’s achingly clenched Iraq-war vet, and Wednesdays, with Mia Wasikowska’s suicidal gymnast, are amazing). Fridays are for therapist Paul (Gabriel Byrne) to get his own head shrunk — and a good thing, with his marriage failing and a patient trying to seduce him. The plots are intriguing, but it’s the cast that’s flawless (you’ll thank the DVD gods for allowing you to marathon chosen characters). Just don’t hopscotch through week 5 — it’s the apex of the season and explains how Byrne slid by Jon Hamm to nab the Golden Globe. But hurry: New patients hit the couch for season 2 on April 5. A?
