How's this for an interesting show concept? A series that airs five days a week, 30 minutes a pop, for nine weeks straight in "real time". Definitely different. But whatever you do, don't be expecting your typical therapy show with this one. HBO's In Treatment focuses on one shrink (Gabriel Byrne), his four patients (who each have a different time slot Mondays through Thursdays) and his own therapy session (with Dianne Wiest) on Fridays. Turns out this uniquely formatted series is an adaptation of a mega-hit in Israel. Hey, Idol was a "borrowed" idea, too, and look how insane people are over that one!

Your take: What do you think of the 30 minutes, five days a week, for nine weeks format? Overkill, or kind of cool?
