Wrong season
Verified purchase
I ordered Season 2 as this was supposed to be, but it was Season 1, which I already own on DVD. I am not sure how this can be corrected, but would still like my Season 2.

A Psych Major's Dream...
Head Case is superb! :-)

We were skeptical in the beginning and thought the series would be silly, but after watching the first episode, we were hooked.

Head Case cleverly sensationalizes the drama of 'normal' mental life. The fact that the show uses real celebrities makes it even more fascinating. Viewers are able to see their favorite stars in uniquely staged therapy sessions. Discussions are curiously questionable and seem more true than false.

We love the main characters, especially psychotherapist, Dr. Goode who receives daily room service at her Hotel residence. Her motto is, "If celebrities want to build castles in their mind, she is here to collect the rent."

This artistry is certainly not for everyone, especially in-the-box thinkers, but others may certainly enjoy the stimulating cognitive joy we experienced.

Another great (non-comedic) Hollywood show for those interested in behavioral science is:

it's that funny. Ali Wentworth (who I had never seen act ...
I found this show on Hulu and it is freaking hilarious!! Wouldn't hesitate to buy all three seasons on DVD.
Ali Wentworth (who I had never seen act outside of her Yahoo interview series) is perfect as the non self-aware therapist to the stars, Dr. Goode. The show plays on the well known saying that your therapist is probably crazier than you are. Most of the celebrity guest stars are really funny from Jason Priestly to Ralph Macchio to Alanis Morrisette. Lola the receptionist, played by Michelle Arthur, is insanely wacky and sports a new bizarre outfit in each episode. Steve Landsberg is great in his role as the clueless psychiatrist who shares an office space with Dr. Goode and sees patients 'pro bono'. Honestly, many of the topics that come up in the therapy sessions are perverted/disgusting/crude but that's what makes the show so funny imo. If you have a slightly twisted sense of humor you will like Head Case. When I found out that it was semi-improvised I was even more impressed. Definitely stick around for seasons 2 and 3 (Dr. Goode's bachelorette party episode=gold). I really can't describe how offbeat and funny this show is so just see it for yourself!
