"America is likely watching "In Treatment". I certainly am. But if you want to really get some therapy, Strictly Confidential serves up a plateful of twists, turns and surprises. Where the HBO series is dry, "Confidential" is packed with "wet", touching upon taboo after taboo, fetish after fetish (S & M to bisexuality and beyond). It even throws in some murder to add to the spice.
If you enjoy the likes of Sex & the City, Footballers Wives, Desperate Housevives, etc., Srictly Confidential will definitely strike a chord for you. And, the super all-star cast plays it right all along the way."
It started out clever...

"Strictly Confidential started out on a high note; two sex therapists who work in Manchester with patients from every walk of life. One of the therapists used to be a cop (this was never believable) and when she finds out her husband is impotent, she has an affair with her brother-in-law who just happens to be her co-worker. Their work as sex therapists was entertaining as they dealt with every issue as adults, offering insight and understanding and there was some fun in the editing room as the patients were shown at home with their significant others.
What doesn't work with this show was the murder angle. One of female therapist's patients kills herself (or not) and the therapist's former female lover/detective is investigating the crime. The story quickly unravels as to who, if anyone, killed the patient, who's having an affair, who's had an affair, and who knows who's having/had an affair.
Hopefully someone will revisit the basic premise of this show. It's not a complete letdown but it was close."
