"Like smog settling over Los Angeles, a creeping sense of anomie haunts the Hollywood power players and parasites sidling nervously through "Shrink," a portrait of a disenchanted therapist to the stars and his clientele." (Stephen Holden, NY Times)
"The return of E's girlfriend Sloane cranks up the hot factor and after watching this half-hour of honeys, it makes you wonder why anyone in the world ever lives outside of Los Angeles.
It truly is the city of angels." (Paul English, Daily Record UK)
