    Is It Wrong....

    By karyndevalle, Jun 06, 2013

    despite loving this show, I really just do not like Cathy ? I kept thinking I'd like her more as the seasons went on but she just got more and more annoying. I feel like she would be a selfish, self-important person, even without having cancer. Great acting from all the cast tho.

    Thank you

    As a terminal patient, I want to say thank you for both myself and my family. This show helped my family to understand a little bit better and gave me the courage to do and say the things I only thought about. Thank you. Debra

    Amazing!!!

    By Sparx86, Jun 24, 2011

    The writing, directing, acting... everything in this show is absolutely superb!!!



    I keep looking for a week spot in the show, but I seriously can't find one. Every episode is just that good.

    They have really managed to turn a serious condition, such as cancer, into a quite humorous show, without making it too goofy or too out there for people not to get invested in the story or the characters.



    I really hope that people aren't too damaged by the reality-TV crap that they miss out on a high quality show.



    If Laura Linney and Phyllis Somerville, not to mention the show itself, don't get nominated (at least!!!) for Emmys, the entire award loses all credability!!!moreless

    The Big C gets an "A+"

    By zagorka77, Jun 24, 2011

    I decided to watch the Pilot because of Laura Linney – only to be pleasantly surprised by the overall quality of the show. The writers found the perfect tone and, although the story is sad, you are left with an unexpectedly positive impression, which inspires you to reexamine your own life. Still, the biggest plus for me is the leading actress. Hers is a flawless performance, truly remarkable and if this was a movie, she would be holding an Oscar! So far, there was no gratuitous nudity or absurd storylines that often turn good shows into a circus. I really do hope they never, ever resort to that. I have high hopes for season two!moreless

    Until now she took it. Now its her turn.

    By lmeyar, Jun 22, 2011

    Great show that revolves around real issues and strong people, the kind that is always better then another crappy teen oriented drama. Laura Linney is awesome as Cathy. She has a terminal illness, so why not say the things she always wanted to say, do the things she always wanted to do. Don't we all want that? except in her case its because she literally has no time left, so she dishes out the pain, regardless of the consequence, to her immature husband, morbid son and annoying students.



    The relationship between Cathy and her student Andrea(Gabourey Sidibe) is also a high point. I also like how she takes control over her sons behavior. It was creepy but funny, seeing her in the bath of blood, and her sons reaction.



    This show has lots of potential.moreless
