THE SHRINK NEXT DOOR SERIES REVIEW
Based on the popular podcast that originally related these true events, The Shrink Next Door tells the story of a man so desperate for change in his life that he’s will to give up everything he loves in life in order to please his therapist. Marty Markowitz (Will Ferrell) has long suffered from severe anxiety. The panic attacks have become so frequent he can barely make casual business talk without passing out. His sister Phyllis (Kathryn Hahn) tired of seeing her brother reduced to a sobbing, hyperventilating mess, hiding away in the corner of rooms, insists that he see a therapist. Doctor Ike (Paul Rudd) takes a personal interest in helping Marty and in helping himself to Marty’s extravagant wealth. It’s a tale of doctor/patient becoming buddy/buddy becoming abuser/victim. Bradly, Frank, and Dogget discuss the merits of therapy, compare the binge vs weekly viewing habits of streaming fan,s and analyze the comedy, the drama, and the courage it takes for Marty to stand up against the oppressor that holds the keys to his life.

Bradly Martin (Screener Squad, Eye on the Prize, Breakfast Pub)
Bradly Martin was born in the united states and grew up on a healthy diet of sports, films, and books. A rather shy lad who kept to himself, Bradly soon discovered the best way to know a person was to know what people liked. Throughout the years Bradly became a fan of many things and a fanatic of none. From Doctor Dre, to Doctor Strange and the who’s who of Whos. From Playstation to the Dreamcast and Marvel to DC. From LeBron James to James Bond and Lord of the Rings to Lord Palmerston (or Pitt the Elder if you agree with Wade Boggs) and is a huge fan of dad jokes and randomly obscure Simpsons references. Armed with a vast knowledge of comics, films, and pop culture. Bradly traveled the world making friends and sharing takes. As a young man Bradly married the love of his life young and grew older every year with each new child brought into the brood. If trends continue, Scientists predict that .2% of Canada (where Bradly and family reside) will be populated by Bradly’s children by the year 2029. You can hear him leading and listening to his favorite critics on the Screener Squad and Eye on the prize and maybe even provide some comments of his own.
Frank Calvillo (Highly Suspect Reviews, Screener Squad)
Born and raised in South Texas, Frank currently lives in Austin and has been in love with movies ever since his father showed him some Three Stooges shorts when he was five years old. Today he loves all kinds of film, regardless of era, country, budget or genre. He believes every film has an audience and is at least one person’s favorite movie. After writing for Sight & Sound and Slackerwood, he now writes for Cinapse where his increasingly random taste in all flavors of cinema (from Rashomon to Mars Attacks!) continues to thrive. His ultimate goal is to write a script for his boyhood crush, Michelle Pfeiffer.
Danny Dogget (Screener Squad)
Hey persons, it’s your favorite canine Dogget! As many of you know, I don’t identify as a critic as much as a classy shock jock. That being said, I do my best to give all of you a well-balanced review filled with my true opinions and hopefully a few laughs. You can occasionally find me on other persons podcast like Mission Impodible (that’ll be 10 dollars Nathan). For the most part, you can find me doing reviews on Oneofus.net.
