Is Patrick Melrose’s road to recovery rocky or smooth during the first season of the Patrick Melrose TV show on Showtime? As we all know, the Nielsen ratings typically play a big role in determining whether a TV show is cancelled or renewed for season two (Patrick Melrose is a mini-series but, if the demand is there, it could be revived for another round). Unfortunately, most of us do not live in Nielsen households. Because many viewers feel frustration when their viewing habits and opinions aren’t considered, we’d like to offer you the chance to rate all of the Patrick Melrose season one episodes here.
A Showtime drama, based on the semi-autobiographical novel series from Edward St. Aubyn, Patrick Melrose stars Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role. The cast also includes Jennifer Jason Leigh, Hugo Weaving, Blythe Danner, Allison Williams, Anna Madeley, Pip Torrens, Jessica Raine, Prasanna Puwanarajah, Holliday Grainger, Indira Varma, and Celia Imrie. The story is the study of a wealthy, damaged man. It follows him from his dreadful childhood, through his adult struggles with substance abuse, and later quest for recovery.
