HBO drama shows Guitar Hero as a partial cause in messy divorce


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.

Dad and his pals take over the kid's Wii and play the game loudly into the night, disturbing his sleep.

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.

While we'll have to watch to get the full story, it sounds like a regular Sunday around our house if we're being honest.

Read the rest on MTV.
