  1. I love this man , love to marry him.

  2. I am very happy to see that so many papers are writing about In Treatment and Gabriel. This wonderful tv series really deserves much attention and many viewers. I think that everybody has something to learn about how people think and react when they see In Treatment. I like IT3 just as much as IT1 and IT2.
    Thanks for sharing all those links Stella!

  3. Does anybody know how many episodes season 3 will have??

  4. it should be 7 weeks, so 28 eps.

  5. Just got my hands on In Treatment season 3. The plan is to watch all over the Christmas as i doubt will be venturing out in this Snowy weather. But hey have food and Gabriel what more would a girl want. Happy Christmas to all at Byrneholics And Gabe Fans.
