| I like the characters
Dani Santino (Callie Thorne) is a suburban mom who is picking up the pieces of her life. She's divorcing her cheating husband. Her teenage kids (Hannah Marks, Patrick Johnson) are becoming a handful. A professional football team is having trouble with their wide receiver TK (Mehcad Brooks) and they call in the suburban psychotherapist to help. There's the hot trainer Matthew Donnally (Marc Blucas) and the mysterious fixer Nico Careles (Scott Cohen) on the team.

I like most of the characters even the standard annoying teenage kids. I like the love triangle they set up. I really like TK. The first two seasons is basically a serial where Dani works on TK and everything else as well as a procedural where Dani treats a new client every week. There are a lot of changes in the third season. The football team is sidelines when she's fired from the team. The family is gone when the kids leave. The love triangle is gone. Only TK and Nico remain while they add John Stamos as the sports agent guru Connor McClane. It's an understandable Hail Mary to revitalize a borderline show but it's ultimately a failure. The last season is cut to only 10 episodes. It was a nice show before the change. It wasn't a bad show after the change either. It just lost too many characters that the fans care about.
