Sylvia and I have been watching Shrinking on AppleTV+. It's a show about three therapists dealing not only with their patients, but their own traumas: Jimmy (Jason Segel), who lost the love of his life and can't effectively deal with his grief, hurting his teenage daughter in the process; Gaby (Jessica Williams), who is going through a divorce; and Paul (Harrison Ford), recently diagnosed with Parkinson's and reconnecting with his grown daughter under difficult circumstances.
Shrinking is a comedy set against grim circumstances, and it's quite funny indeed, but the humour has undertones of sorrow and loss. Despite the pain I feel watching these characters suffer, I keep watching because the overall tone is hopeful and helpful; everyone in the show, even the patients, are as much about helping each other as they are about being helped. It's really quite lovely.
Plus, Harrison Ford is great when he's truly invested in a role, and I think he's found something here that really interests him. He's still the same, dry, Harrison Ford, but he's also letting himself be vulnerable and even a bit frail. It's working for him.
