"This pilot produced as a possible television weekly series that did not come about, features a psychotherapist, Dr. Joe Braden (Mike Farrell), who becomes closely involved with his patients, away from his office, the plot blending two separate cases, an ostensibly compulsive nymphomaniac, performed by Kelly McGillis, and a cab driver (Tom Bosley) who is suffering from audio hallucinations; additionally, Braden's associations with his former wife and with his daughter, along with a possible new romance for him fill the landscape of the scenario. Farrell gives an obviously well prepared and nicely nuanced reading as a therapist who cares deeply for his patients, while McGillis and Robert Vaughn also provide strong performances for a film that is ably directed, acted and photographed; however, other than brief dialogue concerning matters of psychologic theory between Braden and a Freudian psychoanalyst with whom he shares a medical suite, at issue are serious mental and emotional maladies that are patly solved within the script in cavalier fashion, reducing the believability potential of Braden who apparently, during a televison series, would be obsessed with problems of his clientèle week after neurosis-saturated week. The DVD version offers no extra features, other than an inadequate scene index."
