Lisa Kudrow's online comeback

Imagine two of your favorite HBO shows that not enough people watched — The Comeback and In Treatment — mixed together into a series of bite-sized webisodes, and you’ll have Lisa Kudrow’s Web Therapy, a new 15-episode Web series at the Lexus-branded LStudio.com. The Friends alumna plays Fiona Wallace, a shrink with some serious boundary issues and a Valerie Cherish-like capacity for self-delusion. (As on The Comeback, the comic tone here is bone-dry and played for maximum cringeworthiness.) As on In Treatment, we’ll get to see Fiona treat five patients over the course of the series. The first three episodes, all featuring a patient named Richard (played by Tim Bagley) who has his own boundary issues, are streaming now at the site; future episodes will depict Fiona’s sessions with patients played by Christopher Guest regulars Jane Lynch and Bob Balaban, Office alum Rashida Jones, and Kudrow’s producing partner, Dan Bucatinsky. Check out the first episode below, then let us know if you’ll be watching the whole series or if you lack the patience.

    I. Love. Lisa. Kudrow.
    In anything! This was great.

    Well, I watched it. I went to the Lexus site (what an odd site – I don’t know what this has to do with cars) to watch the other 2 episodes. The 3rd is the funniest. This just makes me miss The Comeback. HBO, please bring back Valerie Cherish!!! It’s not like they have anything else that people are watching right now (except maybe the new Little Britain series).

    LOVED THIS…just makes me miss “The Comeback” that much more. I will be watching this entire series! Thanks EW, i wouldn’t have known about this if not for you.

    I would have loved this more if I wasn’t already in love with Alexandra Wentworth’s “Head Case.” People, leave the shrink/patient thing alone. There are other ideas!

    Channeling Regina Phalange is always comedic gold. I’m not infatuated just yet, but because of Kudrow, I’ll continue watching until it gets unbearably stagnant.
