Dr. Craig “Huff” Huffstodt (Hank Azaria) is a well-known psychiatrist in Los Angeles. He is a dreamer, doing his best to save lives and tame lost minds. But he comes to realize that he can’t bring salvation to everyone when a young, 15 years old client of his ends up committing suicide in his office.
We get to follow the changes in his life after this traumatizing incident. We follow him through court, through finding answers on why he had let this happen. He has to defend himself not only from the blaming eyes of the boy’s family and the medical board but also in front of himself. And this is ten times harder when his own family is acting borderline insane as well. With his intrusive mother, Izzy (Blythe Danner), and his spoiled wife, Beth (Paget Brewster) he needs to fine sanity by any means in order to keep his practice and his patients in line.
Russel Tupper (Oliver Platt) is his best friend and also the lawyer that will represent him on his case. Although he has his own morality problems he’s always there to boost Huff’s morale.
This show dwells in the lives and personalities of its characters with rich amusement and familiar problems in an attractive and understanding way. It’s the sort of story that grows on you if you give it the chance.
