It’s only Tuesday, but I’m pretty sure this will be my last trade story of the week because (i) I’m insanely busy at Real World work and (ii) any free time I have will likely be spent up enjoying Red October. I’ll try to make it up to y’all next week, except I’ll be back in Philly for the week (hopefully) enjoying Red October in person and therefore, most likely, will be fluctuating between states of drunk and hungover for the week.

All that being said, I’m glad that I found some good news to go out on (no time to give the story its own post, so I’ll just say “fuck you” to J.J. Abrams for even thinking about a “Lost” movie, and move on). Many of you probably didn’t watch HBO’s “In Treatment,” and I can’t say I blame you — it was a pretty hefty time commitment, and didn’t look like it’d be all that interesting at first. But it was surprisingly engrossing, and I found myself tuning in even for the characters I didn’t care so much about because of the interplay those therapy sessions had on the others. Point being, I’m happy HBO decided to bring it back. All the more so now that it’s been announced that two of Gabriel Byrne’s patients for the new season will be played by John Mahoney and Hope Davis (although word is she’s actually playing a former patient). Both are solid actors with good range, so there’s a lot of potential that they could give us some really meaty performances.

Mmmm … meat.
