It only got 1 Season but I thought it was really a interesting Show , about a Big time hospital Doctor who is really great at her Speciality , who suffers from Bad Behavior when she's off her Meds , just like Me ! The whole cast was good , really a shame no 2nd season ! Watch it and see what you Think ?

I was unsure to start with if this was going to be to my liking. I have personal experience with what bipolar is and get annoyed when mental illness is portrayed as either the reason for someone being "special" or "brilliant" or when it is portrayed as making people victims. However, Catherine's illness (the main character) in Black Box is interwoven with an interesting storyline in its own right.

Her psychotic, manic, paranoid, depressive, hypersexual behaviour is all typical of bipolar. It may seem to some people that it is over played, but it is very accurately shown in my opinion. She is a brilliant neurologist not because she is mentally ill but despite her daily struggle with her illness. The emotional turmoil that her ongoing decisions bring to her are insightful and interesting to watch. I hope that this show is renewed and that we can see more of how her character and the people she interacts with on a daily basis.

Black box is about an amazing neurologist named Kelly Reilly. she is not only able to help most of her patients but also she is great at understanding what they are going through since she's hiding her own bipolar disorder.

A bipolar protagonist is an interesting concept, but this feels pretty heavy-handed.

I loved the character. The portrayal of mental illness was really great. The Show never developed a true season plot though.
