HBO therapy drama “In Treatment” debuted Monday, and included a plot in which a sixth-grader, with divorcing parents, would rather live with his mother because his father plays Guitar Hero all the time.

Oliver’s mother is upset over her soon-to-be ex’s childish behavior, and the fact that he never cooks for his son, but orders out all the time.
