    One of the film's great tricks is that, for a time, you think it will go down a rabbit hole of unrealistic glorification.

    The writing is intermittently brilliant; so is the acting, directing and concept. HBO has been flirting for years with stuff so real it's uncomfortable to watch, and this is an advancement of that experiment. Unfortunately, it's so "slice-of-life" that things frequently take a LOOONG time to happen. Ally Walker is the class of the field among the actors; her work is subtle, transparent and totally unforced. I'm not hooked on this series, but I am interested, and it's rich food for thought and conversation between my wife and I about how we view love, sex and their relationship to each other at different moments in our lives. Jane Alexander is a wonderful glue that holds the stories together, and gives me hope that we can keep finding our way to love as we ripen.

    HBO has finally won me over after canceling Six Feet Under and Deadwood. "Tell Me You Love Me" is a one hour show on the lives of three women and their significant others: Meet Jaime (Michelle Borth), a young chef with commitment fears and trust issues. She has ended her engagement to Hugo and tries to move on with her life. Now meet, Katie (Ally Walker, who is amazing) and Dave (Tim DeKay), a suburban married couple with two children and the passion has run out of their marriage. And then there is Carolyn and Palek, a yuppie married couple with no children and plenty of passion in their marriage and trying to have a baby. In fact, Carolyn (Sonya Walger) obsesses about getting pregnant to the point that Palek (Adam Scott) is now doubtful of his ability to be good husband and a good father. The show is very graphic in sexuality, but that is the point. It is often times painful to watch because (for myself especially) there are moments in the show that you can actually relate. From the desperation of bringing passion, joy, and fulfillment into the lives of our characters to emptiness and loneliness they feel. It is heartbreaking to see Katie and Dave become so faraway when they do love each other still. What these people have in common? They are seeing therapist, Dr. May Foster (the formidable and incredible Jane Alexander), who has issues of her own with her long time marriage to her husband but still is adult enough and knows better. The show is honest, raw, and real with amazing performances from the cast. Truly the best dramatic series HBO has put out.

    It's not surprising that IMDb readers are treated to a few too many impressions of those who watch lots and lots of television. So reviews defining HBO's most recent attempt at "breaking new ground" with "character development at it's finest", and offering lectures on our "sad" puritanical and unsophisticated ideas about sex, come as no big surprise from these Sunday night connoisseurs of the fine art of television. Apparently sex between septuagenarians IS beautiful and if you don't think so, you're not just sad but very, very sad. (and it's probably George W. Bush's fault -- in fact you probably voted for him).For the rest of us, in particular those who have been to the theater a few times in our lives, have read books not listed on Oprah's book club, and perhaps had some experience (and success) in character development, in the far more mundane and no-doubt less ground-breaking art forms, should probably stick to "Married with Children" re-runs for our entertainment. "Tell Me You Love Me" is clearly over our heads. If you can't dig HBO's latest ground breaking series yet again about dysfunctional, self-absorbed, individuals void of redeeming characteristics, then clearly you've been brainwashed by formulaic network shows that are not exclusively about dysfunctional, self-absorbed individuals void of redeeming values. Sad, sad.

    I am reading these reviews and I am still shaking my head at the people who are uncomfortable with the sex scenes..which in my opinion belong in the story and are far far far from being erotic,and that is NOT a bad thing.Someone even said,they did not want to see what a 70yr old and married for years-couple do in bed..and that is sad,very sad..if anything,that scene alone was beautiful,that after all those years,after outer beauty fades,and the body is not as firm as it was,to still want to devour each other is absolutely beautiful and I hope I am so lucky.At first the least favorite couple was the engaged couple,and I had very little understanding towards the female of that couple..but now a few episodes into it,it is clear she is addicted to sex and the problem was not the guys at all,she overheard "guy" talk and chalked it up to a character flaw in him..don't we all ha ha. The fact is,she is addicted to sex and puts it in the same category as love..this I cannot wait to see how it all falls into place for her and for the love of god..do not make it about them getting back together..real people break up over this stuff,so leave it be!!! Having sex just to get pregnant,been there and done that and I totally get this couple..enuf said Married couple ..obviously still in love..but with kids and timing sex became non existent..I know couples going through this..excellent story line,excellent!! Not once did I say..hot,sweaty sex..because that is soooo not what this show is about,yes,it is there..prosthetics or not..attractive or elderly..it is there..it is not gratuitous..it is what real people do and have done and I hope to do WELL INTO MY 70s,80s or whenever!! In a nutshell,excellent show,excellent writing,acting,editing,it is open and honest and I look forward to many more episodes
